October 21, 2018
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This past week I have been visiting Rome with a number of pilgrims from our parish. The first part of our trip was spent in Assisi, the city of peace. By walking in the footsteps of Saint Francis & St. Clare we hoped to rekindle a deeper love for Our Lord. The radical love for Jesus Christ, expressed in the lives and witness of Francis and Clare, is needed today for the renewal of the Church. On Tuesday, October 16th, our group celebrated Mass together at Saint Peter's Basilica. The Chapel reserved for our group was dedicated to the Patron Saints of Europe, Benedict, Cyril and Methodius. This Chapel was created by Saint John Paul II and is very close to the Tomb of Saint Peter. We closed the pilgrimage with a visit to the Basilica of Saint Bartholomew located on the Tiber Island near Trastevere. May the prayers of the Holy Apostle bless our parish community.

This Monday, October 22st, is the first Christmas Novena Mass, marking the 9 Mondays before Christmas. After the Mass we will gather for our first Parish Listening Session to respond to the sexual abuse crisis in the Church. All parishioners are invited to attend the session and share their thoughts and concerns about this crisis. May we continue to pray for one another.

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas
