Journey "under the sea" with Ariel and her aquatic friends in Disney's The Little Mermaid JR., adapted from Disney's Broadway production and the motion picture (featuring the enormously popular Academy Award-winning music and delightfully charming book and lyrics). Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories, Disney's The Little Mermaid Jr. is an enchanting look at the sacrifices we all make for love and acceptance. In a magical underwater kingdom, the beautiful young mermaid, Ariel, longs to leave her ocean home — and her fins — behind and live in the world above. But first, she'll have to defy her father, King Triton, make a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, and convince the handsome Prince Eric that she's the girl whose enchanting voice he's been seeking.

Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

"The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity," is one of the few celebrations of the Christian Year that commemorates a reality and doctrine rather than a person or event. On Trinity Sunday, we remember and honour the eternal God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Trinity Sunday is celebrated the Sunday after Pentecost, and lasts only one day, which is symbolic of the unity of the Trinity.

Sunday, June 14, 2020
Corpus Christi

We celebrate The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ or Corpus Christi. It is a solemn commemoration of the institution the sacrament of the Eucharist. It is, moreover, the Church's official act of homage and joyful gratitude to Christ, who by instituting the Holy Eucharist gave to the Church her greatest devotion. "In breaking bread for his disciples, Christ gave us an example of what it means to allow oneself to be broken for the good of others," Pope Francis said on the feast of Corpus Christi (2016) explaining that it is the Eucharist which gives us the strength to do this. May we allow ourselves to be broken for the good of others - receiving strength from the Eucharist - to be the hands and feet of Christ for the world.
