  • First Reading

    Peter said to the people:
    “The God of Abraham,
    the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob,
    the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus,
    whom you handed over and denied in Pilate’s presence
    when he had decided to release him.
    You denied the Holy and Righteous One
    and asked that a murderer be released to you.
    The author of life you put to death,
    but God raised him from the dead; of this we are witnesses.
    Now I know, brothers,
    that you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did;
    but God has thus brought to fulfillment
    what he had announced beforehand
    through the mouth of all the prophets,
    that his Christ would suffer.
    Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away.”

    Acts 3:13-15, 17-19

  • Second Reading

    My children, I am writing this to you
    so that you may not commit sin.
    But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father,
    Jesus Christ the righteous one.
    He is expiation for our sins,
    and not for our sins only but for those of the whole world.
    The way we may be sure that we know him is to keep
    his commandments.
    Those who say, “I know him,” but do not keep his commandments
    are liars, and the truth is not in them.
    But whoever keeps his word,
    the love of God is truly perfected in him.

    1 Jn 2:1-5a

  • Gospel

    The two disciples recounted what had taken place on the way,
    and how Jesus was made known to them 
    in the breaking of bread.

    While they were still speaking about this,
    he stood in their midst and said to them,
    “Peace be with you.”
    But they were startled and terrified
    and thought that they were seeing a ghost.
    Then he said to them, “Why are you troubled?
    And why do questions arise in your hearts?
    Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself.
    Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones
    as you can see I have.”
    And as he said this,
    he showed them his hands and his feet.
    While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed,
    he asked them, “Have you anything here to eat?”
    They gave him a piece of baked fish; 
    he took it and ate it in front of them.

    He said to them,
    “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you,
    that everything written about me in the law of Moses
    and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled.”
    Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.
    And he said to them,
    “Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer
    and rise from the dead on the third day
    and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins,
    would be preached in his name
    to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
    You are witnesses of these things.”

    Lk 24:35-48


  • Behold the Lamb

    Behold the Lamb

    by Martin Willett


    1. Those who were in the dark are thankful for the sunlight;

    we who live, we who die are grateful for his gift,

    thankful for his love.



    Behold, behold the Lamb of God.

    All who eat, all who drink shall live;

    and all, all who dwell in God

    shall come to know his glory.


    2. Peaceful now, those whose hearts are blessed with understanding

    of the wheat, of the wine united with his word

    and the love we share.

  • Psalm 4

    Lord, Let Your Face Shine on Us

    by David Lockwood


    Lord, let your face shine on us.

    Let it shine, shine, shine on us!


    1. When I call, answer me, O my just God,
        you who relieve me when I am in distress;
        have pity on me, and hear my prayer!


    2. Know that the LORD does wonders for his faithful one;
        the LORD will hear me when I call upon him.


    3. O LORD, let the light of your countenance shine upon us!
        You put gladness into my heart.


    4. As soon as I lie down, I fall peacefully asleep,
        for you alone, O LORD,
        bring security to my dwelling.

  • Emmaus


    By Tony Alonso


    1. As we journeyed on our way
    and remembered Christ our friend,
    our eyes were slow to recognize,
    our hearts to comprehend.
    Now a stranger at our side,
    we talked with him on the way
    of all the things that happened
    that led us to this day.



    In the breaking of the bread
    we have known you, O Lord.
    By your word have we been led
    to the breaking of the bread.


    2. Then he opened up the Word
    of the prophets who had said,
    “Your Savior first must suffer,
    then rise from the dead.”
    As our journey found its end
    and the dark of night drew near,
    we told the stranger, “Stay with us
    till morning’s light appears.



    It was at table then we knew
    why our hearts were set ablaze:
    This stranger was our brother
    arisen from the grave!


    Text: Based on Luke 24:13-35; Tony E. Alonso, b.1980, © 2007, GIA Publications, Inc. 

  • Alleluia! Love Is Alive

    Alleluia! Love Is Alive

    By Steve Angrisano/Jesse Manibusan/Sarah Hart


    1. People of God, see the morning is new;

    rise from your sleeping and run to the tomb.

    Come and see! Come and see! He is alive!

    A grave that is empty, a promise fulfilled.

    God who was with us is here with us still.

    He is here! He is here! He is alive!




    Alleluia! Love is alive;

    conquered the grave and defeated the night.

    Alleluia! Love is alive!

    The Son has arisen for all.

    Your people sing alleluia!


    2. People of God, let your fear fall away.

    Your chains have been broken; abandon your shame.

    Lift your hearts! Lift your hearts!

    He is alive! Here now is mercy embracing your soul;

    here the fulfillment that once was foretold.

    It is true! It is true! He is alive!

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,

I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love you more than anything in the world,

And I hunger to receive you.

But since I cannot receive Communion at this time,

Feed my soul at least spiritually.

I unite myself to you now,

As I do when I actually receive you in Holy Communion

Good Works Never Cease

For several months now we've been [email protected] and gathered online to worship and pray together. Although our state and communities have begun to take small steps towards re-opening, we will continue to re-imagine and re-establish parish life—wherever we are. Your table is our table.


Together, we have:

  • gathered together for Mass online, still inviting lectors, musicians, and ministers to offer their gifts
  • brought you our Parish Mission Retreat and prayerful devotions online
  • established a response ministry to serve and assist those in our community with meal and grocery delivery
  • thanked frontline medical workers
  • ensured that the lights stay on and that internet is accessible for those who are struggling
  • hand-written notes, made hundreds of phone calls, and kept our ministries connected and engaged.

You make all of this good work possible. Half of our offertory gifts are usually collected in church through the Sunday basket. While we aren't able to pass the basket right now, we hope you will continue your offertory gifts through either a one-time gift -or- recurring giving. You may also click the 'Donate' button in the Livestream player. Your sustained gifts bring stability and peace of mind—as well as hope and comfort for those who need it most. Thank you!
