Shortly before dawn, Jesus went out to the disciples, walking on the lake.
When they saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear. But Jesus immediately said to them:
“Take courage, It is I, Do Not Be Afraid."
The 8:45 AM mass will be temporarily discontinued for the month of August.
Please take note that there will not be an 8:45 AM mass on the 5 Sundays of August. (August 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30th) The 8:45 AM mass will resume on Sunday,
