Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God

Join us for 9am Mass at St. James (no 8am Mass)

On the first day of the new year, we honor Mary, not just as the Mother of our Lord, but as the Mother of God. Jesus is fully human, born of a woman, but he is also fully divine. Therefore, Mary is Mother of God as well as Mother of Jesus. Today we also celebrate the beginning of a new year and the World Day of Peace. Let us pray that the peace Jesus brings may permeate our lives and our world in 2019.
