From the Pastor
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Daylight savings time has begun. I hope that everyone remembered to “spring forward” and adjust
their clocks. It seems awfully early this year to
change the time. However, we are already half
way through the Lenten season. Today is the Third
Sunday of Lent. I hope and pray that you are still
keeping your good resolutions and that your prayer
and sacrifices are already bearing much fruit in
your lives.
Convent Renovation
The Knights of Columbus continue to work on restoring the old convent. We have changed out all
of the windows and put in a new air conditioning
system. The Knights have also built a new bathroom and an additional bedroom. We will be
painting the whole convent on the inside and refinishing the floors and cabinets. I am so grateful
for the work that the Knights have done so far and
am very thankful for the donations received to date
for the re-modeling. If anyone else wants to help
please send us a check written to Sts. Peter and
Paul parish for “convent remodeling”.
Chapel Progress
The Chapel of St. Toribio is taking shape slowly
but surely. The altar and stained glass windows
will soon be installed and the interior work will be
starting. We are still hoping to be finished by May
21st but we need a lot more money. Please go to to give us a donation. We would really appreciate it. You can also
send in a check and note that it is for the Chapel of
St. Toribio. If anyone gives $1,000.00 there is still
the opportunity to get a memorial brick.
Suggestions for Improving our Parish
I welcome any suggestions for improving our parish life. I would like to see the establishment of an
English Youth Group for the people who go to the
March 8, 2015
Latin Mass but I am waiting until someone steps
forward to volunteer and help with this. Of course
they would have to be trained in the Virtus Program of the Diocese and meet the other requirements for a Youth Leader. Hopefully soon someone will emerge from our community and offer to
help. I would also like to see more men join the
Knights of Columbus, I would like to see us start
the ACTS retreat program, and I would like to see
the formation of a women's’ club with members
drawn from the whole Sts. Peter and Paul community: Hispanic, English, Latin, and School. I
would like to see someone organize a pilgrimage
trip to Philadelphia for the Papal visit in September
and also for the Pro-Life March next January. I
would also like to see more of our families put
their children in our school and more men and
women volunteer to help teach catechism classes.
I am hoping that the Legion of Mary gets established in the parish so that more direct evangelization can be done in our neighborhood. These are
only some of the things that I see as helping to improve our parish life. If you are interested in helping please step forward and let me know.
Our DDF Campaign needs a boost!! Our goal this
year is $17,850.00 but as of February 20th we have
only brought in $9,967.00. We have to try to bring
in 8,883.00 more in the next few months. If everyone gives a little we can make it. If you haven’t
given to DDF please do so as soon as possible.
Mass times
On Easter Sunday our Mass times will change a
little. The 11:00 a.m. Spanish Mass will move to
12:30 p.m. while the 1:00 p.m. Latin high Mass
will change to 10:30 a.m. The other Masses will
continue as usual. Don’t forget that we have already started a new Mass on Sunday mornings at
7:30 a.m. It is in Spanish.
Thank you my dear brothers and sisters for hearing
me regarding these issues and ideas. I dream of a
parish will lots of active members all trying to
reach heaven but also mindful of the good that
needs to be done while still here on earth. Let’s
not waste the opportunities that we have. May
your Lent be truly blessed.
Sincerely yours,
Father Timothy Davison
Knights of Columbus breakfast today in the cafeteria.
In April we will need to start paying
the Lawn Care Company that we
employ to do our huge lawn. They
will cut the grass each week and trim
and blow off the sidewalks. But, to
pay them we will need your help.
Each year we ask for donations to cover the expense. If each of us contributes just $50.00 we
should have enough for the entire season. Many
people comment on how nice our property looks
and we would like to keep it looking good. Your
help in doing so would be very much appreciated.
If you write a check just note on the memo that it
is for “lawn care”. If you give cash place it in an
envelope and drop it in the collection or bring it by
the parish office. Be sure to put “lawn care” on
the envelope.

Rice Bowl
The next stop on our CRS Rice
Bowl journey is the African nation,
Niger, where we’re reminded that
life’s joys and challenges are often
seasonal. This week we pray for people who struggle to feed their families during the hungry season
- when food is in short supply - and we commit to
acting for the common good.

condition, incarnation, sacrament, redemption, the
struggle between good and evil, and sin and
grace. A brief introduction to the author will be
followed by a moderated conversation on the book
and its insights on faith and life. Read the book
and join the discussion .

Everyday Spirituality
In the hectic lives we live with work, family and
countless other demands, how can we maintain
with all the daily distractions a sense of faith that
we are in the world but not part of it? How do we
stay connected between Sunday Mass and Sunday
Mass with the One with whom we hope to spend
eternity? This short course offers a number of suggestions and ways of staying “connected” with the
Lord every day no matter how many pulls and tugs
are made on our time.
Day & Time: Thursday, March 26, 7:00-8:30pm.
Instructor: Deacon John Donnelly, J.D..

Participating in Lent, we are engaging in
patterns that have endured across the centuries.
From very early times, we have the sense of accompanying the elect on their journey to the font.
From as long ago as the fourth century, we receive
Lent as forty days to shake the dust from our spirituality and reorder our conduct. Then, fasting was
not seen as a strict duty, yet it seems it was widely
observed. Think of the rules of politeness and
courtesy that everyone agrees on. Fasting was also
seen as a social duty, since food was in short supply as winter wore on, and the weak and the sick
had the first claim on what remained at hand.
As a boost to the fasting of the body, the
church developed a richer spiritual fare, including
celebration of the Eucharist every day. This practice began in Rome by the sixth century. Weekday
Mass was only at designated “stations.” The pope
would arrive on horseback at the stational church.
In those days, although the catechumenate was already in eclipse, there were pre-baptismal activities
at the stational Masses: the giving of the Lord’s
Prayer, prayers for the godparents, and constant
references to baptism.

Heaven is at present out of sight, but in due
time, as snow melts and discovers what it lay upon,
so will this visible creation fade away before those
greater splendors which are behind it.
John Henry Newman
Year of Consecrated Life
From the very beginning of the church men and
women have set about following Christ with
greater freedom and imitating Him more closely
through the practice of evangelical counsels, each
in their own way leading to a life dedicated to God.

Del Párroco:
Hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,
Ya comenzó el cambio del tiempo. Ojala que todos
recordaron de cambiar sus relojes. Me parece muy
temprano cambiar los relojes este año. Sin embargo, estamos en la mitad de la temporada de Cuaresma. Hoy es el Tercer Domingo de Cuaresma.
Rezo que todos todavía están cumpliendo sus resoluciones y que sus oraciones y sus sacrificios están
produciendo fruto en sus vidas.
Renovación del Convento
Los Caballeros de Colon siguen trabajando en el
convento. Hemos cambiado todos los vidrios y
hemos instalado un sistema nuevo de aire. Los Caballeros han construido un baño nuevo y otra recamara. Vamos a pintar todo el convento afuera y
adentro, y renovar los pisos y los gabinetes. Estoy
muy agradecido por el trabajo hecho por los Caballeros y tambien estoy muy agradecido por las donaciones recibidas. Si alguien quiere ayudar con
este proyecto favor mandarnos su cheque a nombre
de San Pedro y San Pablo con “renovación del
convento” en el memo.
El Santuario de Sto. Toribio
La construcción del Santuario sigue poco a poco.
Pronto instalaremos el altar y los vidrios y comenzaremos trabajando en el interior. Todavía tenemos esperanzas de terminar el 21 de mayo pero
todavía necesitamos mucho dinero. Pueden visitar
a para donar. Seriamos muy agradecidos. También pueden mandar
un cheque con Santuario de Sto. Toribio en el memo. Todavía hay la oportunidad de tener un ladrillo si done $1,000.00.
Sugerencias para Mejorar Nuestra Parroquia
Estoy solicitando sugerencias para mejorar nuestra
vida parroquial. Quisiera ver el establecimiento de
un Grupo de Jovenes en inglés de las familias que
asisten a la Misa en latín pero necesitamos un voluntario para ser líder y organizador de este grupo.
Tendría que ser entrenado en el Programa Virtus
de la Diócesis y cumplir con otros requisitos. Ojala
que alguien ofrecerá sus servicios. Quisiera
también ver más hombres en el grupo de los Caballeros de Colon, empezar el programa de retiros de
ACTS, la formación de un grupo de mujeres con
miembros de toda la comunidad: hispanas, americanas, las del rito en latín y de la escuela. Quiero
alguien para organizar una peregrinaje a Philadelphia para la visita del Papa y también alguien para
organizar la marcha de Por la Vida el próximo
enero. Quisiera ver más familias inscribiendo sus
hijos en nuestra escuela y más personas ofreciendo
ser voluntarios en el programa de catequismo. Espero el establecimiento de la Legión de María para
evangelización directa en nuestro vecindario. Estas
son unas pocas cosas que veo que pueden ayudar a
mejorar nuestra vida parroquial. Favor avisarme si
quiere ayudar con algo.
Necesitamos ayuda con nuestra campaña para recaudar fondos para el Fondo de Desarrollo Diocesano. Nuestra meta este año es $17,850 pero desde
el 20 de febrero solamente hemos recaudado
$9,9670. Necesitamos recaudar $8,883. Si todos
dan un poco podremos alcanzar nuestra meta. Si
todavía no ha donado favor hacerlo lo más pronto
Cambio del Horario de Misas
A partir del Domingo de Pascua vamos a cambiar
el horario un poquito. La Misa en español cambiara de las 11:00 am a las 12:30 pm y la Misa en latín cambiara a las 10:30 am. Las otras Misas no
cambiaran. Favor no olviden que estamos ofreciendo otra Misa en español a las 7:30 am cada
Gracias hermanos y hermanas por escuchar mis
ideas y mis sueños. Mi sueño es de una parroquia
con muchos feligreses activos que buscan el camino al cielo pero que también están conscientes de
lo que deben hacer aquí en la tierra. No debemos
perder las oportunidades que tenemos. Que su
Cuaresma sea bendita.
