Blessed be the name of the Lord…

from Fr. Carlos A. Gomez-Rivera on August 3, 2015

Lord Jesus, I believe you want me to have faith in you, faith that hearkens to your words without any second guessing.   I hope in your words, not relying solely on my own strength or reasoning.    I love you.    You continue to astonish me by showing me that your ways are not my ways.   Lord Jesus, increase my faith.

How important is for us to be open to HIS LOVE.  Loving HIM alone we can increase our faith, our trust, our confidence…we can rely solely in HIS POWER.

Most of all families are going back to a routine. No more vacation time, it is time to return to school and to a regular back and forth.  BUT, do not get anxious, do not despair, our LORD promised to be with us and to accompany us in our journey.  Lord, increase our faith that to know and experience that you are with us!!!

As your parish priest, I promised to keep you in my prayers for your personal and family intentions. 

Blessings,  Padre Carlos

Alabado sea el Nombre del Senior…..

Senior Jesus, yo creo que tu deseas que tenga fe en ti, una fe que se arraigue en tu palabra sin dudarlo.  Yo espero en tu palabra, no quiero fiarme en mis palabras o en mis fuerzas o razonamientos.  Yo te amo.  Tú continúas sorprendiéndome en mostrarme que mis caminos no son tus caminos.  Senior Jesus, aumenta mi fe.   

Que importante es para nosotros el abrirnos a TU AMOR.  Amándote a TI solamente podemos aumentar nuestra fe, nuestra confianza…solo podemos confiar en tu PODER.

La mayoría de nuestras familias entraran en una rutina, se acaban las vacaciones.  Es tiempo de regresar a la escuela y con ellos el corre y ve de un lado para otro.  PERO, que esto no los lleve a la ansiedad, a la desesperación ya que nuestros Señor nos prometió estar con nosotros y acompañarnos en nuestro caminar.     Señor, aumenta nuestra fe para saber y experimentar que TU estas con nosotros. 

Como su sacerdote, les prometo que mis oraciones siempre les acompañan en sus necesidades personales y familiares.    

Padre  Carlos

ALPHA Program

Sep 20, 2015

A major goal of ALPHA is to form, or deepen an existing relationship with Jesus. ALPHA helps accomplish this by providing each participant the opportunity to learn about HIM in a small group setting, and experience the power of HIS love through sharing and a powerful retreat midway through the classes.

YOU DO NOT have to be Catholic to attend. Must be 18 years old and be able to communicate in English.


  • Non-Christians – those who don't go to church regularly -
  • New Christians – those wanting to brush up on the basic
  • Strengthening your faith – those who are new to the church – those who need a fresh encounter with God – those who need healing in the family

Pope Francis is visiting the United States next month and his message is "Families" Is your family form in the Catholic Faith? Marriages are falling apart, 25% of Christians are falling away from faith, so how do we fight this evil that seems to have overtaken?

Come and join us for dinner, good conversation and an evening of Introduction to a new shorter version of the ALPHA Program.

Sundays 4:00-6:00pm beginning Sun, Sep 20 at 10524 W. Earll Dr (N of Thomas), Avondale
Wednesdays 6:00-8:00pm beginning Wed, Sep 24 at 8570 W. Sierra Vista Dr (N of Maryland), Glendale
