Our Sunday Homily

July 16, 2017, Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Homily by Fr. Joseph Pearce, C.O.

Father asks, "What type of soil are you?" He says we know sin is in the world, and that sin is our own responsibility. He says that Jesus gives us hope, that Jesus is the word that has come down from heaven. He says that the Holy Spirit gives us the gifts that we can become the rich soil to live a holy life.

2017 First Communion
May 28, 2017, Ascension Sunday
Homily by Father Joseph Pearce, CO

Father tells us about the apostles came up on the mountain as Jesus asked them to, and they worshipped, but doubted. He tells us that it is understandable that we too may have doubts at times. Despite that God still accepts us as we were, even with our doubts. Father even shared his own personal testimony of him doubting if God even listened to him. Yet God did not strike him down, and he even became one of His priests. He tells us that God never stops loving us.

2017 First Communion
May 21, 2017, Sixth Sunday of Easter
Homily by Father Joseph Pearce, CO

Father focused on the children and the great and wonderful thing they were about to do for the first time. He told them they were being "sanctified", or made holy by their receiving Holy Communion. He spoke about the sacrament of reconciliation, and about our conscience. He told us the other way of being made holy is by loving one another.
