From the Pastor

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Extraordinary Synod on the Family that met in Rome this past October was just the beginning of a process of discernment on issues facing the modern family. The Holy Father had asked the Bishops to speak openly about their concerns surrounding marriage and family life. This process of discernment, which will include discussion, listening, reflection, and prayer will lead up to a General Assembly to be held in Philadelphia next Fall. Bishop Bootkoski’s letter is enclosed in this week’s bulletin for further reflection on the Synod.

Let us together pray to the Holy spirit for wisdom to guide all members of the Church through this important process. May the Spirit of God rekindle in us the fire of Love.

In Christ,

Fr. Thomas
