Twenty - Fourth Week in Ordinary Time
Watch now the YouTube Sunday Mass : 24th Sunday of Ordinary Time
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
Easter has come once again to St Hyacinth this Sunday. Due to the pandemic, the Sacraments of Initiation were not celebrated at the Easter Vigil and we did not get the opportunity to bring the new candidates and Catechumens into the Church; however, the time is now to bring into the church all those who have been prepared to enter over the past year. During the Noon Mass this Sunday, we will celebrate the rites of Initiation into the Catholic Church. Please continue to pray for all those new members of the Church who are celebrating their initiation today.
During this time unprecedented challenges in the Church, I am encouraging the entire Church community to use our electronic formats for the dissemination of information from our parish. We have our website:

Open our Hearts: a Pastoral letter on racism was released in 2018 by the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. The USCCB describes this letter as “But racism still profoundly affects our culture, and it has no place in the Christian heart. This evil causes great harm to its victims, and it corrupts the souls of those who harbor racist or prejudicial thoughts. The persistence of the evil of racism is why we are writing this letter now.” I am challenging every one of our parish to go download this letter and review it. Please go to parish website and click directly on the banner/ tile named “Open our Hearts” and it will take you to the pastoral letter.
