Updated February Newsletter


We recently received this letter from Msgr Fernando Ocariz, our Prelate, requesting prayers for an ongoing study of administrative changes in the Work to facilitate a more efficient organization of our apostolate in 68 countries.

  A documentary video of his memorable visit to the 2019 is available here

We have begun the tradition devotion of the "Seven Sundays of St. Joseph." The St. Josemaria Institute offers some excellent material to help us live this devotion. 
The Opus Dei website offers these videos for couples on parenting issues:  "Working on Trust is a series of 9 videos presenting common situations that can arise in the formation of children. Sexuality, technology use, friends, vocation, work... There are so many topics that require education at home and dialoguing with one's children."
We continue to offer both in-person and virtual recollections in February. 
Masks and distancing requested in the chapel.
