ROYAL REVIEW (5.05.23)
To be Christ-centered in our words, thoughts and actions.
This weekend we celebrate the First Holy Communion of most of our Second Graders. There were three of them that received this Sacrament at Easter Vigil, and many of their classmates will join them this Sunday at the 10:30 Mass. Congratulations and many prayers to the following students:
Olive Ochoa Monterroso
We look forward to our second graders joining us for the blessed Sacrament at Mass. I hope that you take time to be outside and that you all have a wonderful weekend, and I hope that the Lord continues to provide his love and Graces at all times.
Mary, Queen of Angels, Pray for US!

Rosario en espanol Rosary in Spanish
Paz y Bien,
Come and join us every Monday at 8:15 and learn to pray the rosary in Spanish. We have three parishioners that have joined us since April and they know already how to pray it in Spanish. I have made prayer cards where you can follow with us. Our Lady promises whoever prays my rosary constantly will receive whatever grace they ask of me in accordance with God’s will. Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary awaits you.
