Welcome to

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church

in Ramona, CA


Maybe you grew up Catholic.
Maybe you think of yourself as Catholic.
Maybe you haven’t been to church in a while.
Or, you are worried that you won’t be welcomed here.
And maybe it feels awkward and scary to take that first step.
Question. Doubts. Yearning, but not sure for what.

We get it. We’ve been there. Now we are here.
Maybe God is calling you, too. Just as you are!

Daily Meditations

May 21, 2018 – Monday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time

The Healing of a Boy with a Demon Mark 9:14-29 The story of the healing of the boy is long with great attention to detail. However, the message is simple and very clear. Faith and trust make all things possible, and prayer is the means by which one grows in both. Even the disciples struggled. Prayer: My unbelief outweighs my belief. Fear is always in the way. Help me to let go and grow in faith, trusting you because you are the way.

May 20, 2018 – Pentecost Sunday – Mass during the Day

Appearance to the Disciples John 20:19-23 The disciples are hiding behind locked doors. Jesus appears in their midst and twice offers them words of peace. It is now time for them to come out of hiding and go out to continue the mission he began. Jesus breathes on them in the same way the Father breathed life into the first human. They are filled with his Spirit. Prayer: I was an infant when baptized and a young adolescent when confirmed. Throughout my adult life I have grasped the significance of the life breath of your Spirit in me.

The Beloved Disciple John 21:20-25 Though not thought to be the original conclusion to John’s Gospel, these passages provide some insight into the significance of the Beloved Disciple to the Christian community. John’s eyewitness testimony lives on. Prayer: Beloved Disciple, you knew him and loved him with your whole heart, without question or doubt. I pray to be able to do the same.

Pope on Pentecost: The power of the Holy Spirit changes hearts

Vatican City, May 20, 2018 / 07:58 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Though people may promise to change things, it is the third person of the Holy Trinity that creates real change through the reinvigoration and renewal of hearts, Pope Francis said on Pentecost Sunday.

“Plenty of people promise change, new beginnings, prodigious renewals, but experience teaches us that no earthly attempt to change reality can ever completely satisfy the human heart,” the pope said May 20.

Seven Great Lessons of Pentecost

As we reflect on the historical and liturgical realities of Pentecost after this past Sunday, several deep lessons suggest themselves. 1. We can never have enough of God.
