From the Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

A Blessed Pentecost! May the gifts and graces of the Holy Spirit empower us to be courageous Disciples of the Risen Lord Jesus. Today we complete the Easter Season with the celebration of Pentecost and we are reminded of our great commission to go forth and renew the Earth. This feast of Pentecost comes at a time when many are being persecuted for the sake of Christ and in our own country many people doubt their faith in Christ. As disciples we must live the Gospel in word and in deeds. We are compelled by our Baptism to preach the Gospel with the holiness of our lives.

 This week we continue with our series on the life of the Saints. On Wednesday, May 27th, Fr. Peter Cebulka, C.O., will share with us the story of St. Philip Neri, the patron Saint of Joy. The evening will begin with Mass at 7 pm. in the Church and a presentation on St. Philip, followed by a light reception in the Narthex.

On Friday evening, May 29th, Deacon Joe Moscinski will give a presentation on his book “Notes from the Desert: A Canticle on Prayer” Deacon Joe is currently serving at St. Joseph’s Parish in Hillsborough and will give a presentation on Prayer. This presentation will take place in the Narthex of the Church and will be followed by a light reception. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the different methods of prayer and meditation. Please join us at 7pm.

 Tomorrow, Memorial Day, Mass will be celebrated at 9am. Please continue to pray for our country and for all those who have died in the cause of liberty.

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas
