A Special Message from Father-One Heart One Soul

Dear Parishioners,

I would like to share with you this link: https://zoom.us/rec/share/EDlBhtzpGDqlBIGbpoAlF0un2GxO8_YdFlY_OfBixByzXPlLukR7aFap99boHQYF.pykjrOFI8B5me7_i

which allows all of us, especially those who did not have the chance to join us for the Kickoff celebration of our One Heart One Soul Campaign, to view the video. You may also forward this message to your family members and friends, if you know they haven’t received our parish communications. 

We hope that at this point, you have received your One Heart One Soul Campaign packet, from the Diocese. As of today, our volunteers will be making calls to most of our parishioners, assisting them with our campaign. 

This morning we begin a month-long prayer, for the success of our campaign and the spiritual renewal of our parish community. We want to assure you of our prayers and ask each one of you to pray for a spiritual rebirth of our parish, as we enter this very special time, for our community.

I would like to encourage you to visit our website and watch the video and take advantage of any information posted there. More information will be shared with you, on this project, in this coming weekend’s bulletin, and I have some very exciting news to share with you this weekend, as well!

With prayers,

Fr. Marian Gil OMI
