Homilies and Stuff

Homily for the Third Sunday in Advent (Gaudete Sunday)

Find your own way to rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS!

HERE'S my homily from Gaudete Sunday last year. Go back and listen to the story of St. Marguerite d'Youville.

Oh ya, and we had an awesome Bambinelli Sunday. Here’s a picture from the 9:00am Mass.

And HERE is the pray you can pray with your family when you open the gift of the baby Jesus.

Homily for the Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time (in the wake of the abuse scandal)

In response to the grand jury report detailing the crimes committed by priests and bishops in the state of Pennsylvania (at 1:30, I obviously meant "likely", not "unlikely").

Fr. Bill Casey gave this sermon in response to the 2002 clergy abuse scandal in Boston. It is still just as applicable today.

Mark Your Calendars for the Defending the Faith Conference Next Year

I and about 25 parishioners had an awesome experience last weekend at the Defending the Faith Conference at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. We are going again next year. Mark your calendars. The dates will be Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28, 2019. When attending the conference, you can stay in the university dorm rooms, or, at the Super 8 hotel across the street. If you plan on coming and want to stay in the hotel (a tiny bit more expensive, but more comfortable), then I would recommend booking as early as possible to ensure you get a room.
