Weekend of August 8th & 9th, 2020

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Good Weekend to You!

  Saturday, August 8, 2020 

Today we celebrate the Feast of Saint Dominic

"Saint Dominic became aware that the preacher had to practice what he preached and connect with the people of God. He and a few Cistercians formed what was the beginning of the Order of Preachers, better known as the Dominicans. Living a life of simplicity, the Dominicans were committed to active contemplation, or contemplative action—whichever way it is said, it is the combination of two ways of life."



Today's Mass Readings:
Hab. 1:12-2:4; Ps. 9:8-13; Mt. 17:14-20;
Ps. 9: "You forsake not those who seek you, O Lord."
