St. Joseph Church front

As Eliakim is given authority as master of the palace, so does Jesus confer upon Peter authority to bind and loose. To Jesus, who promised to be with his Church for all time, be glory for ever and ever!

Greetings to you all! In the Gospel today Jesus establishes the Church founded on St. Peter. The name “Peter” comes from the Latin word, “Petra,” meaning rock. Jesus renamed Simon, "Peter," the rock upon which the Church would be built. Authority in the Church was then entrusted to St. Peter, "whatever you declare bound on earth would be bound in heaven, whatever you declare loosed on earth would be loose in heaven."r. .Read Fr. Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.
