    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

LETTER from fr. thomas

JMJ

 

November 27, 2022

 

Dearest Parish Family,

 

God be with us always. A Blessed First Sunday of Advent. This is usually the time I greet everyone at Mass a Happy New Year. It is the start of the new Liturgical Year for the Church.

 

Our Lord Jesus exaggerates when he says in the Gospel that He does not know the hour when the world will end. Of course, He does! It is just He talks in the extreme to drive home the point that we should all be prepared. Advent is a time when we try to examine our lives and with the grace of God strive to become better disciples.

 

Thank you for your commitment in our Wednesday Overnight Adoration for the Respect of All Life especially the Unborn. I am also grateful that you all responded generously to our appeal for South County Outreach – our Advent Challenge One and Operation Shoebox. We also presented another Advent Challenge to invite people to our Parish Church and Family.

 

Our Knights of Columbus is having the initiative of providing Poinsettias for the Church Sanctuary for a donation. Each donor can have their names placed on the Poinsettias they donate which will be placed on the Sanctuary.

 

Next Friday, December 2nd will be our Parish Family’s Noel Night – our Music Ministers has been rehearsing for the past months so we can have a great night where our spirits can be uplifted through songs and fellowship. Our Children’s Choir and RE Kids will also be participating. There is also talk that the clergy will also be rendering a song or two.

 

Dynamic Catholic is still providing an opportunity for a meaningful time to prepare for Christmas through the Best Advent Ever that we can download following the instructions sent through our email blast. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the Advent Penance Service in our Deaneries and in our Parish. We will be having our Penance Service on Monday December 5th.

 

This Advent, we shall also begin our efforts as a Parish Family to discern and deliberate in defining a Vision statement that will provide us a direction towards making a Strategic Plan of Action for the next few years. Kindly take a moment to participate in the survey that will be the first step in our Re-Envisioning Process.

 

Thank you for making a big part of my 33 years of Priesthood meaningful and fulfilling. It has been a great experience and full of memories that I will treasure in my lifetime. As a Parish Family you have given me so much love, care and support that is a great manifestation of God’s grace to me for all these I am truly grateful. God bless, take care and be safe.

 

Love and prayers,

 


Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
