The Month of July
The Precious Blood of Our Saviour was shed for the redemption of mankind. Since the Council of Trent theologians have held that it was an essential part of the Sacred Humanity and consequently hypostatically united to the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity and therefore an object of adoration.
The Holy Father's Intentions for the Month of July 2018
Evangelization – Priests and their Pastoral Ministry: That priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests.

The Mass Explained
The Mass: An Introduction is presented by the Archdiocese of Mobile in association with 4PM Media. The series features Archbishop Rodi with Fr. Victor Ingalls, Dr. Norman McCrummen, and Dr. Allison Meyer. The series asks four questions:
1. Why worship on Sundays?
2. Why a meal?
3. Why do we worship the way we do?
4. Why does the extraordinary come to us in ordinary ways?
Make Our Lady of Guadalupe your home!
Attend Sunday Mass with us; there is no better way to begin your week.
