    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

My Dearest Parish Family,

 

God be with us always. A Blessed Divine Mercy Sunday to you and your loved ones!

 

The Feast of Divine Mercy is the perfect celebration to sustain the spiritual joy and strength of Easter. Our Lord Jesus in manifesting the depth of His compassionate love through the writings and visions shared by Saint Sr. Faustina. One profound phrase expresses the depth of the faith, hope and trust in the Divine Mercy of God.

 

Thank you to the Apostles of Divine Mercy and all others who made the loving effort that we have a relevant and meaningful celebration this year even amid the pandemic. The Novena which began last Good Friday was an honest effort to make real the desire to promote the Devotion to the Divine Mercy of Jesus and the practice of the acts of mercy. Speaking of the latter –I am confident that all the devotional prayers should lead to a transformation of one’s life thru the Divine Mercy.  

 

I hope you still remember how on last Good Friday; we wrote our names and the names of those who we wish to unite to the Saving Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ on a piece of paper with a Cross printed on it. This was a gesture we put in place of the traditional veneration of the Cross due to the    pandemic restrictions. The names are now attached to the Cross of Christ’s Love we placed in front of our Church – this is symbolic of how we should always be united with our Lord Jesus. See the picture I included in this letter.


Our parish family continues to make the effort to be stewards of God’s            mercy through our intercessory prayers at Holy Mass, the Drive Thru           Drop-Off of Food Donations next weekend, our loving spirit of volunteerism in the parish pastoral ministries and in our efforts to continue to gather in fellowship with care for each other’s safety and health.

 

May we all continue to open our hearts to the guidance of the Holy Spirit which changes the heart – that leads to a change in one’s life. The Bishop who ordained me once said: “The heart of the Revolution is the revolution of the heart.” May we all experience a spiritual revolution that uplifts the lives of those desperate to experience the mercy and compassion of a Loving     Father. God bless, take care and be safe.

 

Love and prayers,

 

 

Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
