Monsignor Larry would like to encourage all the members of our parish community to become good stewards as a way of life and make tithing (giving back to God His 10% from what He has given to you) a meaningful part of your lives. It is important for us to be good stewards and give back to God from what He has given to us. Tithing is a good way to build our trust in God since it means taking God at His word. The beginning of Lent gives us an excellent opportunity to make sacrificial giving a regular part of our lives as good stewards of all that......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, While it is true that we belong to the parish community of SS. Cyril and Methodius and that we share in the responsibility of providing the financial means to maintain the parish plant and to provide the necessary ministries that help us grow in our relationship to the Lord, it is also true that we form a partnership with the people in other parishes in the Diocese of Corpus Christi to look after the needs of the Catholic people within the Diocese,  as well as the non-Catholic and unchurched who live in our Diocese. There are certain specialized ministries for which the......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Recently I have mentioned on more than one occasion that the use of the smartphone can keep us from developing our social skills, especially with the younger generation. In the December 28, 2018, issue of the Caller-Times a letter written by Zach Bauder, a junior at Lakeside School in Seattle, Washington, was published. I want to share that letter with you. “I’m a high school junior and I say spend less time on your smartphone” There are two types of happiness in this world: pnes that last and ones that don’t. Either they are enjoyed momentarily, like a candy bar or spending......

About half of the students who are enrolled in our parish school are from families that cannot afford to pay the entire amount for tuition. These students should not be denied a Catholic Education. If you have the means, and want to share with another some of what the Lord has blessed you with, you can adopt a student in your parish school. If you are interested in doing so, just put whatever you want in an envelope and write the word ​“TUITION” ​​on the envelope and drop it in the collection (you may want to write down your name and address to receive tax credit). There are also......

As Catholics, we believe that the Eucharist is the truly the Body and Blood of Jesus. We believe that at the consecration of Mass the substance of bread and wine is really changed into the substance of the Body and Blood of Jesus. This is the ONE part of the Mass that we should not be moving about the church. Going to the restroom can wait! We need to be attentive at this time. Also, if we truly believe in the Eucharist, we should make sure that we participate in Mass every Sunday and during the week when our schedules allow. On Mondays, Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament......

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, May the Peace of the Lord be with you! Today is the second Sunday of Advent. Remember that the Advent season is a season of penance, a time for us to repent and turn more to preparing ourselves spiritually for the Birth of the child Jesus. It will be easy for us to get lost in the worldly preparations for Christmas as we run from store to store to get the bargains as we shop for the right present for that special person. We will be going to different Christmas parties, and will probably eat and drink more than we should. We......
