Pastor’s Message

Message from Fr. Mike

 

Dear Fellow Parishioners,

Call to Renew and Hope

Our theme for 2023 is RENEW. After driving for few years, the Department of Motor Vehicles will ask you to renew your driving license as well as your vehicle license. “Renew” is not just part of a religious vocabulary, it is a natural experience, for example snakes renew their skin. As we enter the Season of Lent, we are invited to renew our commitment to Christ our Savior. As we approach the 75th anniversary of our Parish, we are called to renew our parish socially, physically, and spiritually. To do this correctly, we need the support, efforts, and talents of everyone.

We renew our community life by doing things together and getting to know each other. New people have joined our community both before and after the Covid-19 pandemic. By participating in the Coffee & Donut program, the Pancake Breakfast, the Tour of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, the one day retreat at St. Andrew’s Abbey, the St. Joseph’s Table dinner, and other activities, you get to know your fellow parishioners and bond with them. We are together on this pilgrimage to heaven. I have put forward a few activities for your consideration as a way of rebuilding and renewing our community.

Last week was Catholic School Week. Check the website of the school to see how you can participate, and join the school community.

Blessings,

Fr. Mike
