Through the generosity of a caring parishioner, we now have Holy Water dispensers in our Churches. This coming weekend we will be blessing water and providing bottles for people to take Holy Water home.
The Church believes that the home is the domestic Church, which is connected to the parish Church. It is customary to bless oneself with Holy Water when entering the Church, and this practice can easily be brought to the domestic Church. As often as you do that may you be reminded that you are a baptized son or daughter of God and so live in the life of the Spirit of God.
Our baptism is the sacrament that welcomes us into the covenantal relationship with our Father in heaven through Christ, His Son, in the Holy Spirit. Each time we bless ourselves with Holy Water, we are reminded of our Baptism and the gift of our life of grace with God and each other.

Renowned speaker and author Fr. Michael Gaitley tells the dramatic history of God’s Love and Mercy as interwoven through the transformative message of St. Faustina, the miraculous appearance of Mary at Fatima, the witness of Maximilian Kolbe, and the world-changing papacy of Pope St. John Paul II. Featuring the brilliant cinematic artistry of the Augustine Institute’s film studio, the vast panorama of God’s work of mercy in the world unfolds as a story to be experienced.

"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern."
- Pope Francis, 9/16/13
The Church affirms that every Catholic is called to prayerful, active, and responsible participation in the political process. We urge all Catholics who are eligible, to register and vote.
The Catholic Bishops of the United States are pleased to offer Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, our teaching document on the political responsibility of Catholics. This statement represents our guidance for Catholics in the exercise of their rights and duties as participants in our democracy. We urge everyone to use this statement to help form their consciences; to teach those entrusted to their care; to contribute to civil and respectful public dialogue; and to shape political choices in the coming election in light of Catholic teaching.
