Bishop Raica was the homilist for Solemn Vespers celebrated on the eve of the Episcopal ordination and installation of Bishop Jeffrey Walsh.
On this Ash Wednesday, we pray for a conversion of hearts, individually and at the highest level, to sow seeds of peace.
My friends, today we are at a juncture in our faith journey as we pivot this coming Wednesday, Ash Wednesday, into our Lenten season.
On Feb. 12, Bishop Raica celebrated the bilingual Diocesan Confirmation at the Cathedral of St. Paul.
“I give you a new commandment, says the Lord: love one another as I have loved you.”
There’s something very special about Cullman, about the Benedictine presence and influence, in both institutes.
Lent has always been a grace-filled moment in our liturgical calendar to take stock of our relationship with the Lord and with each other.
It requires a lot of work, concentration, effort, skill, and a lot of preparation to get to the Superbowl.
Recently I had the occasion to preside at the 60th anniversary of St. Joachim Mission Church in Piedmont.
My dear friends and young people, it is my honor to be with you to celebrate Catholic Schools Week and to join the juniors to bless your class rings.
On Jan. 30, Bishop Steven Raica marked the 60th anniversary of St. Joachim Catholic Church in Piedmont with Mass.
Catholic Schools Week is a fitting occasion to welcome you to the Cathedral of St Paul.
We are searchers and beggars, together finding a pathway to make real the life God has entrusted to us.
Bishop Steven Raica marked the Diocesan Patronal Feast Day, the conversion of St. Paul.
I am especially grateful to so many of you who are praying for the cause of life in these days.
When you think about it for a minute, there’s nothing ordinary about Ordinary Time.
Together, we are everybody who values the precious gift of life that God has bestowed upon us.
Dear friends, again, on behalf of all of us here at the Cathedral of St. Paul and the Diocese of Birmingham, I wish you all a very Happy New Year. May it be a year filled with grace and peace!
My brothers and sisters in Christ, I trust this Christmas time is going well for you!
My friends, Christmas Day is not the end, but the beginning of a beautiful season for us.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, thank you for your kind and thoughtful welcome today. Christmas is near!
My dear friends, on this great celebration of Christmas 2021, I join Father Jerabek and Father Ward to welcome all who are here today to commemorate our Lord’s birth.
This year's Catholic Schools Week is devoted to Faith, Excellence, and Service.
My sisters and brothers, tonight, we solemnly bless the new Anna Catharine Grace Memorial Pipe Organ.
