Welcome to St. Henry's Catholic Church!

 

Message From Fr. Bob Hogan, BBD

TWENTY NINTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

JESUS SAID, “REPAY TO CAESAR (THE GOVERNMENT) WHAT BELONGS TO CAESAR AND TO GOD WHAT BELONGS TO GOD.”

Repay to Caesar:  The government should promote peace, justice, the common good, and human rights for all the people.  We need to work together in a society, so we need some form of government.  We are called to support the efforts to work together for the common good by voting after careful reflection; supporting your neighborhood, city, state, country, and the good of the whole world; paying taxes that help us to care for each other; etc.

Repay to God:  We are called to honor and thank God because he made the universe and made each of our lives possible.  God made a covenant with his people where we committed ourselves to put God first in our lives, loving God with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength.  We are committed to following the third commandment of keeping holy the Lord’s Day by going to Church every Sunday (or Saturday evening).  How can we repay God for sending us His Son, Jesus, who gave his life for us?  We repay Him by committing our life to Jesus and to being His disciple and follower.  Like Jesus, who is the truthful man, not swayed by public opinion or people’s status, we commit ourselves to seeking and following the truth; to speaking honestly and not lying.  We want to form our consciences in accordance with God’s truth; not just following our own desires.  Finally, as the second reading states, we want our faith to not be words alone, but to be full of conviction, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, so that our lives make a difference for the people around us, because Jesus and the Holy Spirit are working through us.  How can I repay the Lord for His goodness to me!

WELCOME BACK!

We are open for Mass Celebration but only at 50% capacity!

Archdiocese of San Antonio Precautions for Returning to Mass

Guidelines for Mass Attendees

As we prepare to return to public celebration of Mass, here are some guidelines to ensure the safety and well-being of our local Church.

1. If you are feeling ill, stay safe at home. We highly  encourage those who are vulnerable and people with underlying medical conditions continue  to participate in Mass via Parish live stream: www.ArchSA.org/covid-19#livestreams Mass from San Fernando Cathedral will continue to be broadcast on CTSA on Spectrum Channel 15, Roku,  Amazon Fire, Facebook, YouTube, and Vimeo.  Find details here: www.ArchSA.org/pastoral-ministries

2. Wash hands thoroughly before coming to the Church.

3. Wear a face mask before entering the Church and throughout the Mass.

4. Bring hand sanitizer, your own missal or other Mass aids.

5. Always maintain 6 feet between you and others.

6. Follow the instructions of the ushers as you enter and leave the Church.

Communion. Persons should come forward in a single communion line in the aisle designated at six-foot intervals. Masks should be worn in the communion line and then lowered while in line before approaching the Communion Minister. After communion the mask should be raised immediately. Communion will be received in the hand only.

Sanitation. All parishes will be sanitizing pews, entrances, restrooms, and all other facilities used regularly.

Attendance Capacity. Because seating is limited due to social distancing, you may be asked to attend at another time or view Mass by live streaming.

More details can be found on our website: www.ArchSA.org/mass-guidelines

 

 

 

 

We appreciate your prayers, time, and monetary support as we grow together in God. As such, we are proud to introduce our new online giving program called GiveCentral.

Mensaje del Padre Bob Hogan

VIGÉSIMO NOVENO DOMINGO DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO 

       JESÚS DIJO: "PAGUE AL CÉSAR (EL GOBIERNO) LO QUE LE PERTENECE AL CÉSAR Y A DIOS LO QUE LE PERTENECE A DIOS".

Pagarle al César: El gobierno debe promover la paz, la justicia, el bien común y los derechos humanos para todas las personas. Necesitamos trabajar juntos en una sociedad, por eso necesitamos alguna forma de gobierno. Estamos llamados a apoyar los esfuerzos para trabajar juntos por el bien común votando después de una cuidadosa reflexión; apoyando a su vecindario, ciudad, estado, país y el bien del mundo entero; pagar impuestos que nos ayuden a cuidarnos unos a otros; etc.

Pagarle a Dios: Estamos llamados a honrar y agradecer a Dios porque Él hizo el universo e hizo posible cada una de nuestras vidas. Dios hizo un pacto con su pueblo en el que nos comprometimos a poner a Dios primero en nuestras vidas, amando a Dios con todo nuestro corazón, alma, mente y fuerzas. Estamos comprometidos a seguir el tercer mandamiento de santificar el Día del Señor yendo a la Iglesia todos los domingos (o sábados por la noche). ¿Cómo podemos pagarle a Dios por enviarnos a su Hijo, Jesús, quien dio su vida por nosotros? Le pagamos entregando nuestra vida a Jesús y siendo Su discípulo y seguidor. Como Jesús, que es el hombre veraz, que no se deja influir por la opinión pública o el estatus de las personas, nos comprometemos a buscar y seguir la verdad; a hablar honestamente y no mentir. Queremos formar nuestra conciencia de acuerdo con la verdad de Dios; no solo siguiendo nuestros propios deseos. Finalmente, como dice la segunda lectura, queremos que nuestra fe no sea solo palabras, sino que esté llena de convicción, inspirada por el Espíritu Santo y empoderada por el Espíritu Santo, para que nuestras vidas marquen una diferencia para las personas que nos rodean, porque Jesús y el Espíritu Santo están obrando a través de nosotros. ¿Cómo puedo pagarle al Señor por su bondad para conmigo?
