A Lenten Tradition: Veiling the Cross for Passiontide

"Why Are the Statues Covered"?
Good question. Here's the answer. Towards the end of Lent you may notice purple cloths draped over crucifixes, statues, and images of saints in your church. In some churches, these items are actually removed from the sanctuary altogether. This old custom of veiling religious images is a way of focusing on the penitential aspect


Meet Us In Church
Palm Sunday Of The Passion Of The Lord – March 25, 2018


An ancient tradition says that Jerusalem means City of Peace. Through the centuries Jerusalem has been anything but a city of peace. It has been attacked, destroyed, and plundered on numerous occasions. Today it is the eye of a storm that is causing death and destruction.

Jesus rode into Jerusalem to become its messiah. He came not at the head of a conquering army but riding on a donkey, the animal we refer to as an ass. He came not to play God but to “empty himself and take the form of a slave.” He came to face rejection: “With that, all deserted him and fled.” Mark’s picture of Jesus’ rejection is bleak. There are no disciples around at the end, no relatives, not even God: “Why have you forsaken me?”

What will it take for us to understand the meaning of the cross, how Jesus made peace possible by his own suffering and dying? We keep thinking that we will bring peace by killing others in war; Jesus showed us that we bring peace by dying for others.

Did you know? In the Roman Rite, the beginning of the forty days of penance is marked with the austere symbol of ashes which is used in the Ash Wednesday Liturgy. The use of ashes is a survival from an ancient rite according to which converted sinners submitted themselves to canonical penance. The Alleluia and the Gloria are suppressed until Easter. The law of fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday applies to all Catholics from age 18 through age 59. Abstinence from eating meat is to be observed on all Fridays during Lent. This applies to all persons 14 and older.

We commemorate the timeless values he taught us through his example — the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit. We call you to commemorate this Holiday by making your personal commitment to serve humanity with the vibrant spirit of unconditional love.

[01/12/18]   PEACE AND JUSTICE LITURGY The NDV Student Body gathered on Friday this week for a school liturgy. The theme was "Peace and Justice," and the sixth grade students did the readings and brought up the gifts.

[01/12/18]   French Fridays with Fr. Etienne Siffert, S.M

Des mages venus d’Orient vinrent à Jérusalem pour se prosterner devant le Roi des Juifs qui venait de naître, Ces païens ne connaissaient pas le Dieu d’Abraham, d’Isaac et de Jacob, Mais, en voyant se lever dans le ciel une étoile inconnue, ils s’étaient mis en route. Cependant les prêtres du Temple et les scribes qui connaissaient la Bible et adoraient le Dieu D’Israël n’ont pas bougé.

Aujourd’hui encore, des gens à la recherche de Dieu se mettent en route pour découvrir la Lumière. Pensons à ces jeunes qui font des retraites, qui passent un week-end dans un monastère ou qui répondent à l’appel du Pape qui les invite chaque année à des réunions mondiales pour prier ou qui demandent à l’Eglise de les aider à mieux vivre l’Evangile.

En ce jour de l’Epiphanie, Dieu nous dit qu’il compte sur nous pour indiquer à ceux et à celles qui Le cherchent comment trouver la Lumière. Il nous invite même à prendre la route avec eux. Alors, mettons-nous en marche et laissons la lumière du Christ nous guider pour que renaisse dans tous les cœurs la joie de rencontre Dieu


From our NDV School:
An After-Christmas Prayer Shared with the School Children

When the song of the angels is stilled
When the star in the sky is gone
When the kings and princes are back home
When the shepherds are in the field once more
Then the work of Christmas begins.

To find the lost
To heal the broken
To feed the hungry
To release the oppressed
To rebuild the world
To speak out for justice
To bring peace among all
To make music in the heart.

[01/08/18]   ORDINARY TIME "As we enter Ordinary Time we should remember that Ordinary time can be quite extraordinary, because the word ordinary here does not mean that the season is dull or humdrum. Think of ordinal numbers in math. They are the numbers that count items in order. This is the way the weeks in Ordinary Time work - they count the time until a new liturgical season begins. The weeks progress in order, taking us through a series of Scripture reading that reveal the life and teachings of Jesus so that we can imitate him. 01/08/2018

Immigration: Share the Journey

NATIONAL MIGRATION WEEK JANUARY 7-14: For nearly half a century, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated National Migration Week, which gives us an opportunity to reflect on the circumstances confronting migrants, refugees, and displaced persons of all kinds, and to remember that each of our families has a migration story, some recent and some in the distant past. We are all part of the human family and are called to live in solidarity. The theme for the 2018 National Migration Week is ‘Many Journeys, One Family.” For complete information, and access to a USCCB toolkit with many resources for parish, school, family, and personal use, visit the archdiocesan Immigration webpage at: On September 27, 2017 Pope Francis launched a global campaign in support of immigrants and refugees Share the Journey global migration campaign, sponsored internationally by Caritas Internationalis and in the U.S. by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)/Migration and Refugee Services, Cat...

[01/07/18]   *Remember - we are still in the Christmas season on the Feast of the Epiphany on January 7th. Christmas ends on Monday, January 8th with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.


The Epiphany of the Lord - January 7, 2018
"And behold, the star that they had seen at its rising preceded them,
until it came and stopped over the place where the child was.
They were overjoyed at seeing the star,
and on entering the house
they saw the child with Mary his mother.
They prostrated themselves and did him homage.
Then they opened their treasures
and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod,
they departed for their country by another way." Mt 2:1-12
