Twenty-Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time - September 27, 2020

From the Desk of Father Davis

Friday, July 31, 2020

This weekend, the Scriptures poignantly identify those who speak out of "both sides of their mouths." We all know the type! There are politicians who say anything to be elected, and then don"t follow-through on their promises. There are tele-marketers who try to extol the wonders of a product for purchase, and yet when bought and received, the consumer realizes that the product does not match the sales pitch. There are friends and neighbors who say, "let me know if you need anything, or how I can be of help."

Welcome, In Person/Digital Learning

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 20 - 21 school year, one that is having us learn new strategies and see things through a new lens. In the Spring of 2020, St. Gregory school met with one of its biggest challenges, a flu pandemic that caused the shutdown of all schools across the world. As we reopen our school in the safest way possible, our Catholic school family recognizes the gift of our faith. God is with us on this journey, and we will cotinue to spread the message of Jesus to all of our students and school families.

St. Gregory administration, faculty, staff have worked tirelessly throughout the summer months to ensure the best practice to educate our students whether in the classroom or distance learning St. Gregory school is ready to implement either program.

Sincerely,
Caridad Canino, Principal
Lisa Young, Assistant Principal

Priesthood Sunday

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Priesthood Sunday seeks to reaffirm the priesthood of Jesus Christ and its central place in the life of the Church. This day also specifically honors priests, without whom the Holy Sacraments could not be conferred, for a single day out of the 365 days of the year during which they tirelessly serve their parishes.

Celebrate and thank a priest today!

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Friday, August 21, 2020

Are you or someone you know interested in joining the Catholic Church? Are you curious about the Catholic Faith, but not sure you want to make a commitment? Are you married to a Catholic, raising your children Catholic, and interested in knowing more to be able to share with them? Are you a Catholic who desires to complete the initiation process by receiving First Eucharist and Confirmation? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, we warmly invite you to give serious consideration to entering into the RCIA process.

The RCIA is designed to assist adults who have never been baptized and wish to be baptized in the Catholic Church, or who have been baptized in another Christian Religion and wish to become Catholic, or who were baptized Catholic but have not received First Eucharist and Confirmation. There is no requirement or commitment until you have completed the process, no pressure to decide until you are ready.

The RCIA process will begin on September 13th and meets on Sunday mornings weekly until Pentecost. If you are interested in the RCIA for yourself or someone you know, please contact RCIA Director, Patricia O'Neill at (954) 895-2238 for more information or to register for this wonderful program.

Thursday, September 10, 2020

Saint Gregory the Great Church and The Mission for the Love of God Worldwide invite all families to consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, placing themselves under the patronage of their merciful love and protection.
