Definition of "Politicalness" by Sheldon Wolin taken from The Presence of the Past, Essays on the State and the Constitution. Chapter Eight, Contract and Birthright.
"By politicalness I mean our capacity for developing into beings who know and value what it means to participate in and be responsible for the care and improvement of our common and collective life. To be political is not identical with being a part of government or being associated with a political party. These are structured roles, and typically they are highly bureaucratized. For these reasons, they are opposed to the authentically political.

Beloved St Therese Community,

It was with great joy that we received notification from the Archbishop that we may resume in-person Masses. Alongside that joy, we feel a great responsibility and a sacred mandate to safeguard the health and well-being of our parish body.

We are anxious to see you and we are committed to your safety. Toward these ends, please show mercy to all as we prayerfully discern how to enact these recent guidelines. We will continue to update you as needed! 

1. “In-person” Masses will begin on 6 June for the Great Solemnity of Pentecost. Mass will be        celebrated on Saturday, 6 June at 4pm and in Spanish on Sunday, 7 June at 11am.

2. TO ATTEND MASS IN PERSON, YOU MUST CALL DEACON RAUL AND SPEAK WITH HIM DIRECTLY. He will begin accepting signups BY PHONE at the parish office beginning on MONDAY 18 MAY during office hours ( Monday - Friday from 9AM UNTIL NOON. ) As outlined by the Archbishop, ten percent occupancy of our Shrine allows us to welcome 70 persons for Mass. Therefore, Deacon Raul can accept reservations until full capacity has been reached. 

3. We will continue to live stream all of our liturgies indefinitely.


Let us continue to “parish”; to hold each-other in prayer and acts of mercy and justice as we journey these unprecedented times together.
