August 30, 2020: Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

There is no love without sacrifice; Christ offers us nothing but the Way of the Cross. It seems to be at odds with our own wishes; but we are admonished that “whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; whoever loses his life will save it. Only in losing ourselves in the Way–in Jesus–will we find (and save) ourselves.

On Sundays, our church doors remain open for private prayer after Mass until 6 pm. If you choose to make a Sunday visit to our Lord, please practice responsible social distancing.

Please consider donating to St. Francis de Sales Parish. In the absence of a Sunday collection, we rely on your contributions to provide service to our community.
