Pray with us.
I would like to invite you all to pray together intentionally for the collaborative efforts of Our Lady of Pompeii and St Teresa of Calcutta Parishes. Please set an alarm for 4:13 and pray the Come, Holy Spirit prayer. Why 4:13? Because April 13 (4/13) is the date Bishop Mike appointed me pastor of these two parishes and what set us on this path of collaboration. Thank you for your faith. I can't wait to see what God has in store for all of us. Come, Holy Spirit!

SEPTEMBER : THE MONTH OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS
The Church dedicates the month of September to Our Lady of Sorrows, also known as Mater Dolorosa (Mother of Sorrows). This devotion recalls the Blessed Virgin Mary’s spiritual martyrdom in virtue of her perfect union with the Passion of Christ. This was her role in salvation history, and what merited her place as the spiritual Mother of all Christians. This is symbolized by a single sword, or seven swords, piercing Mary's suffering heart, as foretold in Simeon's prophecy. Traditionally the Church meditates on the "Seven Sorrows" of our Blessed Mother: the prophecy of Simeon; the Holy Family's flight into Egypt; the loss of the Child Jesus for three days; the meeting of Mary and Jesus as he carried his cross; Jesus' crucifixion and death; Jesus' sacred body taken down from the cross; and Jesus' burial. The feast of Our Lady of Sorrows (Mater Dolorosa) is September 15th.
"Trust the past to God's mercy, the present to God's love, and the future to God's Providence." - Saint Augustine of Hippo
