Gospel Mk 6:1-6

Jesus departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by his disciples.
When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue,
and many who heard him were astonished.
They said, “Where did this man get all this?
What kind of wisdom has been given him?
What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!
Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary,
and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon?
And are not his sisters here with us?”
And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them,
“A prophet is not without honor except in his native place
and among his own kin and in his own house.”
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there,
apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith.

Mission Statement

 
Mary's Garden 2012  Being the visible body of Christ in the territory assigned to St. Francis de Sales  Parish and conscious of our founding as a congregation in 1722, we the community of  St. Francis de Sales, state that we come to joyously worship our Lord and Savior  Jesus Christ and to strive for full justice in our personal and public affairs, to  reverence and care for the earth and its bounty, to bring glad tidings to the poor and  the oppressed, to heal the many wounds that abound in every life and to live our lives  in such a way that all who see us will truly know that God indeed exists.  We invite all  persons to come and taste how sweet the Lord is!
