Welcome!

Bienvenidos!

Dear Parishioners, 

We should pause to remember God's blessings to each one of us, to our family, to our community, and to the Church. Let's start by looking at our life in the light of faith, in the light of God. Our existence has been given to us as a gift. God has called us to life. You and I know that sometimes life is not easy. We frequently encounter difficulties, but God remains close to us. The closeness of God with the people of Israel was not imaginary, the Jewish people really did experience the presence of God in their midst (Jos. 24: 17b).

Having a job is another blessing from God. Work gives us dignity. In a sense, through our work, we come to resemble God and his work of creation. God did nothing for himself; he has always existed to serve others. Creation is one example of the work God has done out of love for humans. God loved us so much that he did not consider the task of creation to be complete until he had also created a plan for our eternal salvation. In an ultimate act of love for us, God sent his Son to accomplish the work of our redemption. Jesus gave us his flesh and blood. All he asks is that we believe in him and follow his commandments. Friends, our job is to serve God by serving one another.

Faith is another great gift. Belief in God is a grace. It has never been easy to have faith. It has become particularly difficult at this time, when scandals and difficulties make us doubt his presence. Possibly you have asked yourself, 'where was God when these things were going on?' 'Does God remain in our midst?'

It is also prudent to recognize the great opportunities and benefits that God creates for us, even in the midst of our parish community. In mid-July, a letter was sent to inform you about the projects that had begun in the parish. That work is not yet finished, and we have ventured to walk a few additional miles.

We all know the work that is being done in and around the church. We have engaged in many projects over a short time frame. Pews have been refinished. A new floor has been installed. The bathroom facilities have been upgraded. The sacristy has been moved. A garden has been planted. The parking lot has been coat sealed. The kitchen has been upgraded. Yes, it has been a huge undertaking. Many have joined in this effort to make our place of worship a beautiful space.

Thank you for your prayers. In the not too distant future, we will invite you to participate in a campaign to help cover the cost of renewing the floor and restoring the pews.

Brothers and sisters, let us ask for the grace to renew our sincere and faithful commitment to God and to his church. We ask that you and I can say as Joshua said: "As for me, and my household, we will serve the Lord" (Jos. 24: 15b).

 In light of the recent scandals, I know many people are wondering whether they should remain in the Catholic Church. And I totally get that; the outrage is warranted.

But in this time of crisis, I beg you not to flee, but to fight--not violently, with the weapons of the world, but with the weapons of the Spirit. We need you.
