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 27, 2018 – The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

The Commissioning of the Disciples Matthew 28:16-20 The eleven are sent out to teach and baptize, to make disciples. Jesus’ words express clearly the reality of the Trinity and fulfill the name given to him at his conception, Emmanuel, God is with us. Prayer: I pray in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who draw me into their perfect relationship of love.

May 26, 2018 – Memorial of Saint Philip Neri, Priest

Blessing of the Children Mark 10:13-16 Jesus reacts to the disciple’s treatment of the children by telling them that there is much to be learned from the little ones. They model complete and total trust. The kingdom of God belongs to those who rely on God alone. Prayer: We pray for those who care for us. Dependence is often seen as weakness, but it can be a gift, especially when leaning on those who will us to be the person God intends us to be.

May 25, 2018 – Friday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time

Marriage and Divorce Mark 10:1-12 Jesus is clear in his response to the Pharisees who question him about marriage and divorce. He cites scripture saying that “to separate what God has joined together” is not permissible. Marriage is not to be entered into lightly, and the sacred covenant is to be taken seriously. Prayer: We pray for all who struggle in marriage. We pray for those who have suffered divorce. We remember your kindness and mercy.
