A LETTER FROM OUR PASTOR
Easter is a most glorious time in the year, a time of happiness, rejoicing and triumph. God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, and the Son so loved us that He gave Himself for our salvation. Without sacrifice there is no love, without the Cross there is no Crown of Victory.
During the days of Holy Week, the Church in her prayers and Masses shows us the Life, Death and Resurrection of her Divine Spouse, Jesus Christ, She recalls the depths of wisdom and knowledge of God as they are revealed in Jesus. We ask you to actively participate in the ceremonies of Holy Week.
May Our Risen Saviour bless you with the peace and confidence of our holy faith which allows us to share in such magnificent mysteries.
Sincerely in Christ,
Father Richard Vila

POPE FRANCIS' PRAYER INTENTION FOR FEBRUARY 2017
Please remember the Holy Father Pope Francis' intentions in prayer throughout the month of February:
Comfort for the Afflicted
That all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, refugees, and marginalized, may find welcome and comfort in our communities.
Beginning in 2017, the Pope will present one prepared prayer intention per month, rather than two. Should an urgent need arise, an additional intention may be added.
