  • Reach Out - Loving our neighbor

    My Dearest Parish Family,


    God be with us always.


    I am writing to introduce the message from Kanoe-Claire Martin who is responding to our appeal to "Reaching Out-Loving our Neighbor." We have spoken about it several times in our Santiago Speak every Wednesday. May it be a start of people stepping up to be there for others. As I also mentioned before our St. Vincent de Paul President Paul Mondello volunteered to be the repository of people willing to volunteer to help those in need with their particular skill or ability. Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity of heart. God bless and take care.


    Love and prayers,

    Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval

    Pastor

Dearest Parish Family,

 

God be with us always. An Inspiring and Uplifting 2nd Sunday of Lent to All!

 

I hope you all agree with my greeting  because the past weekend we were witnesses to such an awesome display of our response to the disposition of the    Spirit of the Lenten Journey. There was a great response to the Monthly Drive Thru Food Donation of non-perishable items. I am impressed on how as a parish family we have taken it to heart to support the feeding of the hungry thru South County Outreach.

 

Last Saturday we also witnessed the Rite of Election of our Catechumens who are now to be referred to as the Elect. There were also several Candidates who also were blessed into their journey for the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. On behalf of our Parish allow me to send a shout out to thank Ray, Lyanamar and Alicia who worked together to make this possible. Let me also acknowledge the sponsors who have accompanied them in their journey from the beginning.

 

Our Hispanic Community has also been addressed by Fr. Martin in our Spanish Masses about the importance of participating in any way in our PSA efforts to meet our Diocesan Assessment and even beyond. The PSA Video will be presented to our English Masses this weekend. It is my hope and prayer that there will be an overwhelming response out of the gratitude of our hearts and the intention to provide for the Diocesan Ministries.

 

There are several other ways we can increase our desire to be transformed by the Spirit during this Lent. There is the ongoing Best Lent Ever videos with the accompanying journal made available  because of our participation in the Dynamic Catholic Initiative. We can also begin the process of the Act of  Consecration to St. Joseph as our Holy Father has designated this year as the Year of St. Joseph.

 

We are praying communal Stations of the Cross in Spanish on Thursdays and English on Fridays during our weekday Holy Hour at 7:00 pm. Our Outdoor Stations/Way of the Cross has also been installed although the walkway will take some time to be finished. In the meantime, people can walk in the dirt the same way of Lord Jesus walked on the way to his Crucifixion.

 

The Gospel this weekend presents to us the triumphant and glorious vision of our Lord Jesus in front the three chosen apostles. This way his way of reminding them of what lies ahead for those who follow in His Footsteps. His intended to give his apostles then an inspiring vision and for us a strengthening of our resolve to follow Him no matter what. May the elevation of our Lord Jesus’ Sacred Body & Blood during the Mass – bring about a vision of our Lord Jesus truly present in our midst during the Eucharist.


God bless, take care and be safe.

 

Love and prayers,

 

Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
