FROM THE PASTOR ~ January 8, 2023 ~



~ January 8, 2023 ~

Dear Parishioners,
On the last day of last year our Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI entered into eternal life. This was sad news but we understand it was his time to meet the Lord. He left behind a beautiful legacy as he led the Church through difficult times. The media informed us that his last words were “Jesus, I love you.” As he was preparing to die, he said he
was not preparing for a farewell but for an encounter. Now we have an intercessor in heaven so let us pray for his eternal rest and for the whole church as we grieve his loss.

This Sunday is the feast of the Epiphany. With this feast we finish the Christmas Season and begin Ordinary Time. I want to thank everyone who made this Christmas and New Year so special in all the churches including the music, decorations, liturgy and gifts at all the Masses. As we begin the New Year, let us be positive and hopeful that this will be a blessed year full of many achievements and spiritual growing.

Happy New Year and Many Blessings,
Father Ariel

Dear Parishioners,

I can’t believe it is  Christmas! I wish you and your families many blessings. Let us remember that Christmas is about Jesus, not us. We must give to Jesus the very best gift that we can give. We must share the joy of Christmas with our families and bring His love everywhere we go. Mother Teresa said that every day we give love is Christmas.

I am thankful to everyone for making this Christmas so special. The churches look beautiful.  Participation at Mass and parish events is amazing. The music is excellent. Your love and support make me so happy to be your pastor.

On behalf of Deacon Charlie, Deacon Tony and all the parish staff, I wish you a very Blessed Christmas. I will remember each of you, your families, and your intentions in a very special way at our Christmas Masses.

Many blessings,

Father Ariel

Dear Parishioners,
I invite you to participate in our first 50-50 for
the new year. The drawing will be held on February

success of this raffle.
We want to thank the Knights of Columbus and all
the volunteers who work at our Monday night Bingo.
The weekly proceeds from Bingo help our parish

One of the most important missions of the Church
is to protect and defend life. Saturday January 22,
2022 is a day of prayer for the legal protection of
unborn children. I invite all our parishioners to offer
prayers and sacrifices on this day for the sanctity of
life. I encourage our families to pray the rosary

Father Ariel
