St. Patrick - New Evangelization is Next Phase for Parish

Message from the Pastor - Father Jeff VonLehmen

Coleen Hamilton 0 1624 Article rating: 3.0
 

In the 1960’s St. Patrick parish began in a gym where Taylor Mill Elementary School allowed parishioners to gather for Mass, until we had an official church.  The original parishioners, the founding      fathers and mothers of the parish, were graciously assigned from St. Cecilia, St. Anthony and Holy Cross to begin a new parish and yes - a  school.  From these three parishes, we have come to build a solid foundation and a future. Things have changed since then. Demographics have  favored our location and our mission more than ever over the years.  The need to evangelize through Catholic school education has become a great opportunity.   We also have the opportunity to be a more contributing light and outreach to the many public school parents and families in our area. Holy Cross High School is no longer Holy Cross parish high school, it is a district high school to which St. Patrick will be able to make a significant impact as we grow.  

Here is the key!  Each family is called to evangelize and expand our parish.  Because of our active families,  we have made many good changes, especially to reach younger families and make our liturgies more teen and young adult friendly.  We have expanded our services to the homebound and elderly at the same time via video and personal contact. The grieving group and parent “Return” group have been well attended, as well as the Women’s Bible Study. 

It is also our hope to expand the school up to eighth grade.  We are looking to begin an endowment process to help. 

The phase we are now in is called the new evangelization. It is not a program. It is a new way of life we are all called to live.  This new way of life involves spirited parishioners who look around the neighborhoods for people who are unchurched or fallen away and gently invite them to events we would like to sponsor for them.

We have much work to do to form a new mentality of evangelization here at St. Patrick. But it is exciting!

We can start within our own families.

As always, we need some lay leadership.  Let us know if you are interested.  

Of course, we will also be hearing more about the synod as well.  And stay tuned.

 

Blessings and Christ’s Peace,

 

Fr. Jeff

Betania, Venezuela Eucharistic Miracle

Written by Linda Connelly, Parishioner

Betania, Venezuela Eucharistic Miracle

  Written by Linda Connelly, Parishioner

 

On December 8, 1991 (the feast of The Immaculate Conception) Fr. Otty Ossa Aristizabal celebrated midnight Mass at the Marian Shrine of Finca, Batania in Cua, Venezuela.

After Consecration, he divided the large Host into four pieces, consumed one and placed the remaining Pieces on the paten. When he looked down a short time later, he noticed one of these Pieces showed a red spot with a red substance oozing from It, "as if blood from a wound." Numerous pilgrims in attendance at Mass that night confirmed that Fr. Otty had no wounds that this could have come from.

After Mass, Fr. Otty took the Host and placed it in the Sacristy to preserve It. At 6:00 am, he went to check on It and verified It continued to ooze, which shortly later became dry.

 

Under the direction of the Bishop of Los Teques, the Host was subjected to some special studies. These investigations were not nearly as in depth as the studies done on the Lanciano, Italy Eucharist in 1971 or the Buenos Aires, Argentina Eucharist in 2004. However, it was confirmed that the Betania Host had bled human AB+ blood. This is the same rare blood type found in the other two miracles. AB+ blood being most commonly found in the Middle Eastern region.

 

The Betania bloody Host was made readily available for pilgrims to visit and adore/venerate shorty after these studies were completed.

 

A second miracle occurred with this Host in 1998. On November 12 of that year, a young man from New Jersey, Daniel J. Sandford, went on pilgrimage with his prayer group to Betania, Venezela to see this miraculous Host. After his spiritual director, Fr. Mazarella, celebrated Mass, the door of the Tabernacle containing the bleeding Host was opened for adoration. With other group members present, Mr. Sandford observed an incredible phenomenon. In his own words, this is what he described. "With great astonishment, I saw that the Host was as if in flames, and there was a pulsating Heart that was bleeding in Its center. I saw this for about 30 seconds or so: then the Host returned to normal. I was able to film a part of this miracle with my video camera..." This short footage can be seen today on Youtube. I encourage you to take a moment to watch it! Simply type Eucharistic Miracle of Betania, Venezuela in the search bar. 

 

In both the Lanciano, Italy (750) and the Buenos Aires, Argentina (1996) miraculous Hosts, it was proven by scientists that These were "living" human Heart tissues. Here we see a visual of This living Heart. In 2004 speaking of the Buenos Aires Host, Dr. Zugibe stated, "At the moment you brought me This sample, It was pulsating."

 

Today the blood of the Betania, Venezuela Host still appears fresh and It can be visited in the chapel of Perpetual Adoration at the convent of the Augustinians Recollects of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Los Tequ

The Veil Removed

A short film that reveals the coming together of Heaven and Earth at Mass.


The Veil Removed Video

This video is meant to give real understanding to what is actually happening at Mass and reveals how Heaven and Earth come together at Mass.  The basis for the film come from information that came to light while doing research for a radio show, Catholic Women Now, hosted by Chris Magruder and Julie Nelson.


According to The Veil Removed website: "The Veil Removed is a short film that reveals the coming together of heaven and earth at Mass, as seen by saints and mystics, revealed by scripture and in the catechism of the Catholic Church."
