The Weekly Word at St. Benilde 5.19.21
The past year has been unprecedented in its challenges. Our churches and communities have become distant and scattered in the wake of the the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet with Archbishop Aymond's recent declaration lifting the dispensation from attending Sunday Mass beginning on the Feast of Corpus Christi--Sunday, June 6, 2021--we
are all invited to Come to the Table once more.
With great joy, we invite all of our parishioners to return to the Mass, allowing us to worship together once more as a faith community.
Please Note: Sunday, May 30 will be our Last Sunday to live-stream the Mass on Youtube & Facebook.

On Saturday, May 22, Archbishop Gregory Aymond will celebrate the Ordination Mass for the Transitional Deacons, the men who are beginning the final stages of formation before, God willing, they are ordained priests next June.
Two weeks later, on June 5, he will celebrate the Priestly Ordination Mass and celebrate 5 new priests to minister in our local church. Take some time to meet these men (click the grey button below) and please keep them in prayer as their journey to priesthood continues!
