The Paths of Discipleship

07-30-2023Weekly ReflectionFr. Chris Nunes

Dear Fellow Disciples, peace.

The parables of today's Gospel illustrate different paths leading to discipleship in the kingdom of God (or... of Heaven, as Matthew likes to call it).

The metaphor of the found treasure shows the kingdom flourishing within someone who welcomes it. Even though with no preparation, almost in a hurry. In a short time, the person passes through a conversion experience, touched by faith, leaving behind sin and vices.


The Devil at work

07-23-2023Weekly ReflectionFr. Chris Nunes

Dear Fellow Disciples, peace.

Jesus warned us about the influence of evil in our lives. It is naive to think that we are free from the attacks of the forces of the anti- Kingdom, anti-God, anti-Church. Even worse is to convince ourselves and others that the devil doesn't exist. This is what he wants in order to deceive more, confuse more, destroy more. God's enemy, and ours, aims to neutralize the work of God in the world and our lives.


Pine Trees Removal Schedule

07-23-2023Campaign Progress

Removal of the five pine trees at the Stonewall House will begin on Monday, July 24. This will take approximately 10 days. During that time the drive down the left side of the church will be closed while they are working. The house will not be able to be used during the day and we will reschedule meetings to a different location. We apologize for the inconvenience.


We sow the seeds of the Word, others will reap

07-16-2023Weekly ReflectionFr. Chris Nunes

Dear Fellow Disciples, peace.

The parable of the sower calls attention to some important points on the missionary work of the disciples. Their work is to sow, not worry about the harvest. They need to reach out to as many people as possible.


Jesus Praises the humble, the little ones

07-09-2023Weekly ReflectionFr. Chris Nunes

Dear Fellow Disciples, peace.

In the time of Jesus, many scribes gave too much importance to themselves. They seemed to feel superior as compared to others, as if they had some religious knowledge unattainable by others. They saw themselves closer to God more than their fellow men and held the knowledge of God’s will.


Capital Campaign Frequently Asked Questions

07-02-2023Campaign Progress

How is Saint Rose of Lima determining the pledge amounts that we are asking families to consider?

The request amounts are based on several factors, including giving history and the answers shared in the feasibility study. Our goal is to challenge everyone to consider supporting Saint Rose of Lima above their usual giving. We ask each family to prayerfully consider a manner of giving, and we encourage you to give an amount that is meaningful and sacrificial to your family.


A Greater Love

07-02-2023Weekly ReflectionFr. Chris Nunes

Dear Fellow disciples, peace.

This Sunday’s Gospel reports maybe the hardest demand of Jesus to his disciples. He must be at the center, first place, in the life of each disciple.

To love Jesus implies having Him and His gospel at the center of our existence as the motor that gives strength and life to everything. It is to take all choices and decisions having in mind our sense of belonging to Him. He will become the source and the light of every step we make and every breath we take. There is no compromise! Our other loves must stay behind His. Otherwise, it will not be true love.
