Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

May the peace of Jesus Christ be with you and your families. On behalf of Fr. John Plans, Deacon Ernest Salazar, and staff, we assure you that we are keeping you in our prayers.  You are loved and greatly missed.  We encourage you to be safe and if needed, stay at home. 

Temporary office hours during this time are 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, provided you wear a mask. At the entrance of the church and in the office, you will find a table with missalettes, the People of God magazine, choir books and a pamphlet for online giving. Please take these items for your personal use. 

On this page is vital information to assist you as we walk this journey together. May God bless you and protect you as we give thanks for the many blessings we have received.

Sincerely yours in Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,

Fr. Javier Gutierrez, S.F., Pastor

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.  I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul.  Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you.  Amen. (click here to print)
