Due to the increase in confirmed Covid-19 cases, wearing masks at Mass will be MANDATORY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN THIS CRUCIAL SAFETY MEASURE.
As always, thank you for wearing your mask and social distancing at Mass. We tried to get Our Lady of Guadalupe Masks but there was a problem with the printers. The image is too intricate and the ink does not print well. We will have different colors available with the St. Jerome Logo instead.

Father's Weekly Reflection
The Epiphany of The Lord
Dear brothers and sisters, on Christmas Night, Jesus the Son of God, manifested himself to the shepherds. These men represented one of the poorest and most marginalized populations of Israeli society. St. Mathew implies that these humble shepherds were the first to receive the great news of the birth of Christ. Listening to the message of joy, peace, and salvation, the shepherds run and bring homage to eh Child, who was born.
The shepherds were not the only ones to witness the Epiphany of the Lord; the Magi were also participants in the joy, peace, and hope that the Child, Jesus, brought to the world.
Brothers and sisters, the revelation of God is still alive and is with us every moment, without us sometimes realizing it. God is the one who communicates with man, with a good heart, and reveals His plan of Salvation with the love that only a loving father has. You and I have always been part of that revelation and manifestation of God. It is true that many times we are very busy and we do not notice those moments of grace and blessings. The Magi recognized him as King, Prophet, and Priest. How do we recognize Him? How is it easier for me to recognize God and hear his message of salvation?
