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!

Starling: A Parish Retreat
Saturday December 16th 10:00am – 3:00pm
Isn’t each one of us traveling through the vicissitudes of life, making our way towards God’s eternal throne, where we hope to be welcomed once and for all into the everlasting and totally fulfilling life of heaven, of perfect and uninterrupted communion with God? This is what the Bible means when it refers to Christians as “aliens and sojourners” in this world (1 Peter 2:11). This is what Christian spirituality throughout the ages means when it calls Christians “pilgrims” and our time on earth a “pilgrimage of faith… toward eternal happiness” (cf. Lumen Gentium 21 & 58). This Retreat on the Three Wise Men, will dig into this living parable, seeking wisdom to help us along our own Christian journey.
Lunch will be provided. Free will offerings gratefully accepted. Please contact the parish office to confirm your attendance.
