Christ has risen, Alleluia!
As we enter the Sixth Week of Easter, I wish to, once again, thank you for your prayers and continued support of our parish community. It has been quite some time, since we have been able to gather together, here in the church, and yet, we are very blessed to continue to maintain a strong parish family – a family of faith and mutual support.
This coming week, marks the 100th Anniversary of the Birth of St. John Paul II. Please take some time to read the article in the bulletin. A live-streamed Mass will be celebrated from Rome, on May 18th at 7:00 a.m. Also, in the bulletin this week, I give you the opportunity to learn more about the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate and the founder of the order, Saint Eugene de Mazenod, whose liturgical commemoration falls on May 21st.
In these days, many of us are probably spending more time on our media devices. This is especially good, if you are joining us for Mass, the Divine Mercy Chaplet or the Marian Devotion, or reading our bulletin and my messages. 😊 Unfortunately, given the times we are in, there is also the possibility for unwanted and unsolicited material coming through. Please be aware of this SCAM: if you received a message, supposedly from me, asking you to purchase anything or any other message, that is not related to pastoral ministry, please contact me by phone.
During the month of May, Pope Francis is encouraging us to pray the Rosary. Please join us for our Marian Devotions, following the Eucharist, Tuesday to Saturday.
I continue to celebrate Mass and the Divine Mercy Devotion, according to the schedule below, so I hope you will join us, on Zoom. It is encouraging to see that more and more people are following us every day.
