Wednesday, June 1st is the Feast of St. Justin the Martyr, the patron of our parish. For us, it is a Solemnity. A Solemnity is the highest liturgical rank of a feast in the church calendar. To observe this day we will have Eucharistic Adoration from 6:00pm to 6:50pm. Mass will start promptly at 7:00pm for those who are unable to come in the morning. The morning Mass will be at 8:00am.

HOPE IN TROUBLED TIMES, We are in a dark period in our world and in our country in that we have been separated from Eucharist. However, life will emerge again as nature shows us. Things will come back to normal if we put our trust and faith in our Lord. Historically people have turned to houses of worship during troubled times, however, this virus has kept us from receiving the gift of life, Jesus in the Eucharist. Let us put our faith and trust in the Lord as we pray for all of those who have died, all of those who have been affected by this virus; whose lives have been disrupted during these difficult times. We pray for all health care workers and all those working hard to combat the disease. Please read 2 Chronicles 7:14 and Psalm 46. Father Mark
MISSION STATEMENT: The goal of Saint Justin The Martyr Parish is that each member grow in the Grace through Jesus Christ, and in so doing cooperate with the Holy Spirit in giving glory to God, in experiencing the salvation of their soul, and in building up the Body of Christ
