Blessing of the Bambinelli and Presentation Blessing – Sunday, February 5 at All Masses
A beloved Hispanic tradition is for the faithful to bring the baby Jesus figurines from their Nativity sets to church to be blessed at the end of the Christmas season. We invite you bring your own baby Jesus for this special blessing. We also invite parents of 3-year-old children to present their little ones for a special blessing. This is a tradition of giving thanks to God and the Virgin Mary for the gift of the child’s life, as well as a renewed dedication of his/her life to God.


Aliento – February 7 @ 7pm
Aliento is a monthly Holy Hour with prayer and song. “Aliento” has double-meaning in Spanish, both “breath” and “encouragement.” We loved how “breath” relates to the breath of God/ the Holy Spirit, and hope that the event is one of deep, consoling encouragement.
