We invite you to the Chapel for our daily adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. 

The exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is held 24/7 in Parish Ministry Center Chapel. 





Vatican News

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis said Lent is a time where we struggle against the temptations of Satan and worldliness.  His words came at his Sunday Angelus address at the end of which he announced the distribution of 50,000 free copies of a pocket-sized booklet called “Safeguard your Heart” containing reflections on Jesus’ teachings.  Many of those distributing the booklets to the pilgrims present in St Peter’s Square were homeless people. In his Angelus address the Pope recalled how Jesus went into the solitude of the wilderness for 40 days where he successfully overcame temptations in “a hand-to-hand combat” with Satan. And through his victory over Satan, he said, “we have all triumphed but we need to protect this victory in our daily lives.” 








Message from the Pastor

Hello and Welcome!

People encounter God in different ways but always in relationship!  At St. John Brebeuf Parish, you will  encounter Christ through a community that gathers daily and Sunday for Mass, who work for justice and    who live a life for others by giving their time and talent and treasures for the common good.

You’ll discover that there is an ongoing role for you in the ways of faith; a way for you to share theblessings that you received from God.  Through prayer, study and meeting thoughtful, caring people you’ll discover that the message of the gospel didn’t become irrelevant. 

Please join us!  God is calling all of us to a deeper understanding of what life’s all about, faith, family andsacrificial service.

Sincerely, 

Father Mike Meany
