On September 4, 2016, Mother Teresa will become Saint Teresa of Calcutta as the Church celebrates her profound legacy and declares with joy her sainthood before the world. Her tireless efforts on behalf of God’s most vulnerable children made her an example for millions worldwide devoted to the struggle for human life and dignity.

With much gratitude let us pray, Blessed – and future Saint – Teresa, pray for us!

The Lord responds to stewards who put their total faith and trust in Him. We praise and glorify Him at all times for His kindness to us. We are urged to give generously, and thus build up treasure in heaven. For "wherever your treasure lies, there your heart will be."

El Señor responde a administradores que ponen su fe total y confianza en él. Le elogiamos y nos glorificamos en todo momento por Su bondad. Se nos urge a dar generosamente, y así aumentar el tesoro en el cielo. Pues "dondequiera que su tesoro esté, allí estará su corazón."


Work on the Jubilee Memorial Garden is underway. Trees and walls have been removed. Let's keep the garden growing, by answering the call for volunteers. Lend your time and talent to creating a beautiful place for prayer and reflection. We can all help to keep the work moving by dedicating a brick today, by clicking the brick above.
