  • 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. A Blessed and Wonderful Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms of our Parish Family. We also remember fondly all our mothers who have been called to heaven by God. In their honor we have the Shrine of our Tribute to Mothers in the Church near the Baptistry where we can place photos of our beloved and significant women of our lives.

 

In our observance of Mother’s Day, our Knights of Columbus has undertaken a fund-raising project “Mother’s Day Roses”  with a donation to Obria – this is our parish family’s way of showing in the concrete our support of Respect for Life. Families will also be invited to participate in the Mary Crowing during this month of May dedicated to our Blessed and Spiritual Mother Mary.

 

Our Parish is also hosting the visit of the Pilgrim Silver Rose of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico – this visit is coordinated by our Knights of  Columbus. The Silver Rose will arrive on the evening of May 12th and we will have the Holy Hour in honor of the visit. Afterwards, it will be reserved in our Blessed Sacrament Chapel for the Overnight Adoration by those who comprise our Respect for Life Ministry with the Knights of Columbus serving as cohorts during Adoration hours. This takes the place of the monthly Adoration for this intention every third Wednesday of the month. The Adoration is also open to those who wish to pray for Respect for Life in all stages to pray for the end of abortion.

 

We have also begun our intentional efforts to promote awareness of Mental Health Issues and those who are affected by it. We have asked Scout Marc Garcia to have as his Eagle Scout Project the Prayer Shrine of St. Dymphna who is the patron saint of those with Mental Illness and those who care for the afflicted. The Palacio Family has donated the Statue of St. Dymphna which was carved in Italy. With your generous support we are slowly accomplishing the Walkway of the Saints on our Parish Campus. We will be blessing the Shrine this Sunday after the 10:15 Mass.

 

We have transitioned to celebrate our Liturgies inside the Church especially our Holy Mass. We thank the efforts of those who volunteered to make this possible beginning with the Knights, our sacristans, hospitality, environment ministry and parishioners who practiced their acts of stewardship last Monday May 3rd.

 

We have now allowed our Ministries to start making reservations for use of the available rooms of the Parish Hall. Kindly coordinate with our Facilities Coordinator – Mrs. Refugio Jacobo. The limitations are a result of the Diocesan approval for us to replace the broken Dividers in the Parish Hall with completely new system. This has been made possible because of your generous support of our PSA where we            benefitted from the rebates and your direct donation to our Building Fund. I am so grateful and humbled by your generosity.

 

We as a Parish Family, manifested how we are willing to share of ourselves and our gifts so that we can journey and support each other to follow the command to love God above all by laying down our lives for one another. We have witnessed this sharing of love and care especially in the past year when we were tested by all the experiences brought about by the pandemic. Thank you again. God bless, take care and be safe.

 

Love and prayers,

 

Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
