Pope Francis and the Holy See continue to raise awareness of the brutal persecution taking place in northern Iraq, and to pressure the international community to take action in defense of the nation's Christians and other religious minorities.
I am Fr. Mario Arroyo, the Pastor of St. Cyril of Alexandria in West Houston. I invite you to join us for any and all parish gatherings,but especially the Eucharist. If you choose to do so, the very first thing I want to communicate is simple: Relax. Even if you've never been in a Catholic church, or for that matter any church before, you'll have no worries about being singled out. We want you to be able to experience a Mass with uplifting music, practical homilies, and an enjoyable atmosphere. What you learn on the weekend about being a disciple of Jesus, you will be able to use during the week.
Wear what's comfortable, we are more concerned with helping you deal with real life than with what you wear. So, dress casually and you'll fit right in. Also, the offering at St. Cyril's is for those who are a regular part of the community. Instead of wanting you to give something, we want you to get something!
If you are new around these parts, or if it's been a long time since you've been to church, St. Cyril's has you in mind! There's already enough you have to think about when you're visiting a church for the first time.
Since we have six Masses a weekend, and since they are all very different, you might want to check out the Mass schedule, which also gives you a brief description of the ambiance, musical style and language of each service. You will find these descriptions here: "Sunday Mass Times & Which One To Attend"
We hope that getting some of this stuff out of the way not only encourages you to join us for church, but also helps you to connect with the hope and encouragement that God has for you.
