PALM SUNDAY OF THE PASSION OF THE LORD
DOMINGO DE RAMOS EN LA PASION DEL SENIOR
Passion Sunday
Domingo de la Pasión
La siguiente información proviene del folleto que se creó
cuando la iglesia fue dedicada. La imagen del Crucificado es de
hydrostone y se ha hecho en bajorrelieve para hacer que parezca
que ha sido tallada en la pared. La ausencia de color se destina a
la figura más sutil; lo que permite que las luces y sombras
dramaticen las características del Señor que sufre. El crucifijo es
colocado en una pared lateral para evitar competir con la acción
central del dinamismo de la palabra y Sacramento que se celebra
en el santuario. Fue diseñado y elaborado por hermana Mary
Peter Tremonte, O.P.
El ambón, donde la palabra de Dios es proclamada y
predicada, nos recuerda la presencia del Señor en su palabra:
proclamada para y por su pueblo en medio de los reunidos en su
nombre. La parte de enfrente del ambón muestra abstractos
granos de trigo — cuando cae en buena tierra, brota y fructifica
en abundancia (Lucas 8:4-15). El grano es la palabra de Dios y
somos el suelo en el que echa raíces y crece para la gloria de su
nombre. Cuatro tipos de madera (nuez, teca, roble blanco y
nogal) han sido cortadas y trazados para hacer los diseños en el
altar y el ambón con tal precisión. Cada uno fue diseñado por
hermana Mary Peter Tremonte, O.P. y elaborado por el pasillo
de la fabricación de San Antonio, TX.
Las ventanas Marianas son 16 paneles de vidrio grabado; en
el atrio principal de encuentro para rendir homenaje a María, la
madre de Jesús, especialmente como aparece en la historia de la
salvación. Ella se ve como una mujer, ayudante, hija, amada
esposa, amiga y mediadora. La técnica del vidrio leptat es un
proceso patentado utilizado exclusivamente por Conrad Schmitt
Studios de Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Las ventanas fueron
elaboradas y diseñadas por la hermana Mary Peter Tremonte,O.P.
El órgano en nuestra Iglesia, es un órgano de 13 tubos en fila
construido por M. P. Moller empresa para nuestra comunidad
parroquial. Dispone de dos teclados manuales y un teclado de
pedal, cada uno contiene una brújula 16-notas. Cada teclado
tiene 11 paradas con diferentes botones. El gran órgano
contiene una palanca que ayuda incrementar la diversidad de los
sonidos.
La capilla, que abre a la plaza y al Nártex de la iglesia
principal, está en la forma de una pequeña tienda de campaña o
pabellón. Tiene 45 asientos fijos y puede ampliarse con asientos
movibles para acomodar a 60. Un sueño desde hace mucho
tiempo del Padre Ed Abell, la capilla ofrece un lugar de descanso
tranquilo de oración y reflexión las 24 horas al día.
The following information comes from the dedication booklet that
was created when the church was dedicated.
The image of the Crucified One is made of hydrostone and
done in bas-relief to make it appear to have been carved from the
wall. The absence of color is intended to make the figure more
subtle, allowing lights and shadows to dramatize the features of
the suffering Lord. The crucifix is placed on a side wall in order to
avoid competing with the central, dynamic action of Word and
Sacrament being celebrated in the sanctuary. It was designed
and executed by Sister Mary Peter Tremonte, O.P.
The Ambo, where the Word of God is proclaimed and
preached, reminds us of the presence of the Lord in His Word:
spoke from, to and for His people in the midst of those gathered in
his name. The ambo frontice bears an abstract of a grain of
wheat—when it falls on good soil, it springs up and bears fruit in
abundance (Luke 8:4-15). The grain is the Word of God and we
are the soil in which it takes root and grows to the glory of His
name.
Four woods (butternut, teak, white oak and walnut) have been
precision cut to make up the in-laid designs in the altar and ambo
frontices. Each was designed by Sister Mary Peter Tremonte,
O.P. and executed by Hall Manufacturing of San Antonio, TX.
The Marian windows are 16 etched glass panel windows in the
main gathering space to pay honor to Mary, the mother of Jesus,
especially as she appears in salvation history. She is seen as a
woman, helper, daughter, beloved bride, friend and mediator. The
leptat glass technique is a patented process used exclusively by
the Conrad Schmitt Studios of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The
windows were executed there and designed by Sister Mary Peter
Tremonte, O.P.
The organ in our church home is a 13-rank pipe organ
constructed by M. P. Moller Company for our church community.
It has two manual keyboards and a pedal keyboard, each
containing a 16-note compass. Each keyboard has 11 different
stops of the tilting-tab variety and there is also a coupler from the
great organ to the swell to increase the diversity of sound.
The chapel, which opens onto the plaza and into the narthex of
the main church, is in the form of a small tent or pavilion. It has a
fixed seating for 45 and can expand with moveable seating to
accommodate 60. A long-time dream of Fr. Ed Abell, the chapel
offers a place of quiet restfulness, prayer and reflection 24 hours
a day.
The Stations of the Cross (in the chapel) designed by
Sister Mary Peter Tremonte, O.P. encircle the glassed
walls in a band around half the chapel. The furnishings in
wood and bronze continue the materials and design theme
set in the main church space.
Christ the Good Shepherd come to our aid.

Las estaciones de la Cruz (en la capilla) diseñadas por
hermana Mary Peter Tremonte, O.P. rodean las paredes
del cristal en una banda alrededor de la mitad de la capilla.
Los muebles en madera y bronce continúan los materiales
y el tema de diseño situado en el espacio principal de la
iglesia.
Cristo el buen pastor, ven en nuestra ayuda

During the season of Lent and Easter, Christians around the world
are united in a special way with the Holy Land. Our hearts and
minds and prayers are especially aware of the special place the
Holy Land has in Salvation History. Keeping Christianity alive in
the Holy Land is an urgent need. Recent events have been
especially challenging for Christian communities. All Christians are
called to assist our brothers and sisters who now live in the land
that was sanctified by the Lord’s life, death and resurrection. On
Good Friday, April 3 we will have a collection to support
Christianity in the Holy Land. Thank you for your generosity.
Durante la temporada de Cuaresma y semana Santa, los
cristianos alrededor del mundo están Unidos en forma especial
con la Tierra Santa. Nuestros corazones, mentes y oraciones
son especialmente conscientes del lugar especial que tiene la
Tierra Santa en la historia de salvación. Mantener el cristianismo
vivo en Tierra Santa es una necesidad urgente. Los
acontecimientos recientes han sido especialmente difíciles para
las comunidades cristianas. Todos los cristianos están llamados a
ayudar a nuestros hermanos y hermanas que ahora viven en la
tierra que fue santificada por la vida, muerte y resurrección del
señor. El viernes Santo 3 de abril tendremos una colecta para
apoyar el cristianismo en Tierra Santa. Gracias por su
generosidad.

This effort is being coordinated by POP parishioners
who are experienced in the health care field and
understand that most families are ill prepared to deal
with the economic, emotional and physical burden that
caring for a loved one can cause. Having information
and knowing what credible and reliable resources are
available to us can help lighten the load. Each registrant
will pick three workshops to attend and enjoy a hot lunch.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED SO YOU CAN SIGN UP

ATTENDING. To pre-register, go to
