We Shall Open Our Doors for Public Worship Soon!

Dear brothers and sisters,

As of Monday, June 8, 2020, St. John Paul the Great Parish doors are open for the public celebration of weekday Masses, baptisms, wedding Masses and funeral Masses. Efforts are being made to ensure that our parish is in compliance with all safety directives.

Archbishop Blair has extended the dispensation for Sunday Mass through Sunday, September 6, 2020. The date for the resumption of public celebration of Sunday Mass is yet to be announced. We will continue live streaming & videos of weekday and Sunday Masses so that all will be able to participate and remain connected with our parish family. Times and days have changed.

Weekly Reflection


What do faith and religion do for us?

05-24-2020© LPi

Ultimately, they remind us of some truths we conveniently forget: we are created by a loving God, we have imperfections, we sin, we need to be forgiven, we have a mission and a purpose, it's not just about us, and we hunger for the joy of salvation. These are human truths that are not dependent upon whether we like them. Ignoring them places us on the paths of comfort and satisfaction as we blindly pursue the busyness and superficiality of our empty lives. Instead of pursuing supernatural and lasting pleasure, we choose things that are easier and quicker to obtain: sex, drugs, travel, houses, cars, fame, popularity, self-achievement and satisfaction, physical enjoyment, and the like.
