WELCOME TO THE PARISH

Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Fr Stephen and myself take this opportunity to welcome you to our Parish this Christmas. We especially welcome our visitors and extended family members. Please know what an honor it is for us that you open your heart to worship our Savior—O come let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

While the last few years have been different to say the least with the impact of sickness, and even more different than other years in living memory, we can genuinely stand here as a community of faith and say today that Jesus Christ never changes! Isn’t it wonderful to know that regardless of the circumstances or storms around us that Jesus stays constant and faithful, and he invites us to do the same.

I would like to take a moment to say thank you to the many volunteers who continuedly help and assist in our parish. I am so grateful for how you have served so selflessly in many different ministries and positions within our parish— names need not be listed, your constant presence is appreciated; God and many others know whom you are. Fr Stephen and myself are truly grateful. Thank you so much for all you do, without you our parish would not grow in God’s love.

Peace, hope, joy, love; are not just words on cards you get each year, they’re things we need but often can’t find. I pray that all four of these fill your life in every way. I am grateful we celebrate “Emmanuel” (God with us), without God among us we would be lost. Through God’s constant presence we are healed, transformed, reconciled and made whole. I pray you have a joyful Christmas and a blessed 2022 filled with community, family and friends.
.

 Fr. Brendan, Parish Administrator

Dear Parishioners and Friends

It is with great joy that I am traveling to Ireland for the month of August to be with family and friends. I am delighted that the Parish will be in safe hands during my vacation as Fr. Denis & Fr. Larry continue to care for you. I look forward to returning in September to share with you about my travels. During my vacation, Thompson Art Glass will continue to manufacture the new sanctuary stained-glass windows. We expect installation to be completed in the Fall.

As we face so many challenges in 2021, we are reminded of our call as missionary disciples to act out of the heart that God has formed in us. The CSA raises funds that make our work possible, including supporting more than 100 ministries, programs, and services. This includes helping the hungry and homeless, support for our parishes, priests and seminarians, and promoting the work of the Catholic schools, and so much more.
