The Light is On

During Lent STM will have extra confession times each Thursday from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.  If you have been reluctant to come to the sacrament, have been away for some time, or just find it difficult to get to a Saturday afternoon confession time, this is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with Christ and his Church.

STM Survey

The results are in for the STM Parish Survey!  You may view the document here or if you need a paper copy stop by the Parish Office.  Thanks to all for the responses and cooperation on this project as well as your continued prayers as we consider and implement some of your ideas.

Pope: We are "Catholic Atheists" if we have hardened hearts

(Vatican Radio) Listen to the Word of God to avoid the risk of a hardened heart. That was Pope Francis’ message in his homily at morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta on Thursday. The Pope pointed out that when we turn away from God and are deaf to His Word, we become unfaithful or even “Catholic atheists.”

Pope Francis drew inspiration from the First Reading from the Book of the Prophet Jeremiah to meditate on the importance of listening to the Word of God. “When we do not stop to listen to the voice of the Lord we end up moving away, we turn away from Him, we turn our backs. And if we do not listen to the voice of the Lord, we listen to other voices.”
