From the Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, (Psalm 122:6). Deacon Tony and I arrived home from our pilgrimage early Tuesday Morning. We left Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv just ahead of a missile attack launched from Hamas in the Gaza Strip! Our pilgrimage to the Holy Land was peaceful and deeply prayerful. Fr. Anthony Ciorra was the Spiritual Guide for our journey to Jerusalem and Galilee. Each day we paused to pray at some of the places where Jesus lived, walked and ministered. It was a very powerful and deeply spiritual experience. I thank Fr. Tony for his excellent presentations and prayerful presence on our journey. Fr. Tony will present our Parish Advent Mission in December. The dates are December 13th -16th, please mark your calendars.

We remembered all of you in our prayers, especially at the Wailing (Western Wall) and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. May God bring peace to the Holy Land!

We are in the process of repairing some of our sidewalks. The past winter was particularly hard on some sections of sidewalks, particularly the area outside the kitchen door and the sidewalk leading to the school. The Gym Roof has been completed and that completes the Second Phase of the projects for our Capital Campaign.

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas
