Our YouTube Channel
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have created a YouTube Channel for our local Catholic community. We record Fathers Bernard D’Sa and Rowell Gumalay saying Mass so those who are sheltering in place and unable to attend services will have access to Mass with their local priests. The video is shot in high definition. You can view it here or on any smart device (TV, phone, tablet or computer) that has the YouTube app. Be sure to turn on the HD setting to get the best picture and sound. You should also have the ability to make the video full screen. (Note: higher resolutions may not be available for the first several hours after uploading)
Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel to get notification of new posts. Don’t forget to turn on the sound and adjust the video quality to your needs. Click on the graphic below to go to our channel.

Catholic Kids Homilies
Catholic Kids Media is an effort to evangelize the culture, providing quality Catholic programming for kids that does not water down Catholicism. We develop resources for parents and teachers to instruct children in the Faith and practices of prayer. These videos tackle tough questions such as “What is the Eucharist?” and “What is the Trinity?” in order to help kids understand and love the strange and wonderful thing that is Catholicism, so that they might live Christ-centered lives.

In A Message To Americans, Pope Francis Says Getting Vaccinated Is ‘An Act Of Love’
Pope Francis is adding his voice to a campaign to overcome vaccine skepticism, issuing a public service announcement insisting that vaccines are safe, effective and an “act of love.”
The video message released Wednesday is aimed at a global audience but directed particularly at the Americas. It features six cardinals and archbishops from North, Central and South America as well as the Argentine-born pope. It was produced by the Vatican and the Ad Council, which has produced a series of pro-vaccine ads in a bid to get more people vaccinated.
In his comments, Francis said: “Being vaccinated with vaccines authorized by the competent authorities is an act of love. And contributing to ensure the majority of people are vaccinated is an act of love.”
He added: “Vaccination is a simple but profound way of promoting the common good and caring for each other, especially the most vulnerable.”
Francis had emphasized at the start of the pandemic the need to ensure equal access to the vaccine, especially for the poor. But faced with increasing skepticism about vaccines especially among religious conservatives, the Vatican has vowed an all-out effort to overcome hesitancy and encourage widespread vaccination.
The Vatican has declared that it is morally acceptable for Catholics to receive COVID-19 vaccines, including those based on research that used cells derived from aborted fetuses.
