A Welcome Message from Fr. Jorge Rodriguez
When I first came to St. Mary Help of Christians Church, I am reminded by how amazing the parishioners accepted me as a Servant of God. As time went by, countless of beautiful memories remind me of how impressive the church as a whole. But this is not the reason why the church is built.
Every church has its own missions. Our church invites people to worship, thank, and praise God. It is a place of adoration and fellowship. A place where we open up our hearts and let Jesus come into our lives.

The disciples were celebrating Pentecost together when "tongues of fire appeared which parted, then came to rest on each of them". The disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in foreign tongues. Visitors from many different countries were amazed that each guest could hear his or her native language being spoken as the disciples proclaimed God's glory.
1 Corinthians 12: 12-13
Each person has received different manifestations of the same spirit to contribute to the common good of all. All members of the church have been baptized into one body because of our belief in the Holy Spirit, who was sent to us by God.
John 20: 19-23
Jesus appeared to the disciples even though they had locked the doors in fear. Jesus then showed the disciples his hands and his side; and they rejoiced at his presence. He breathed on them saying "Receive the Holy Spirit". He then gave the disciples the power to forgive others or hold them accountable for their sins.
