    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 Advent Season to all. Happy New Liturgical Year!

 

This is the season when we are given a chance to reignite our relationship with God in preparation to celebrate meaningfully the Season of Christmas. This is one holiday that a lot of people look forward to celebrating with family, loved ones and friends. There are already numerous indications that we are having more opportunities to gather in person than when we were at the height of the pandemic a year ago. This is one of the results of more people caring for each other as Pope Francis mentioned in his encouragement for people to get vaccinated.

 

Although we all have had our Thanksgiving Meals and Moments, I still would like to enumerate a gratitude list: Our Thanksgiving Mass gave us an opportunity to recognize God’s Providence in the Holy Eucharist. Several Pastoral, Seasonal and Liturgical Events are occurring one after another to foster and enhance our bonds as a Parish Family. These are: the Dinner of the Matrimonios en Accion, Noel Night on December 10th, December 11th Concert and Mañanitas for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12th, Posadas (TBA), Advent Penance Service on the 13th and the Simbang Gabi (Advent Novena Masses) from the 16th to the 24th of December at 5:30 am with a light breakfast offered after each Daily Mass.

 

Thank you for your support of the Knights of Columbus project to gather funds for the purchase of a latest model of an ultrasound machine to a Prolife Clinic in Riverside. They also had a membership campaign during all the Masses last weekend. They were able to recruit quite a number of men interested to join our Chapter of our Parish Family. Our monthly Wednesday Overnight Adoration dedicated for prayers for the Respect and Preservation of all Life especially the Unborn has always found volunteers to serve as intercessors and prayers warriors.

 

Our Lord Jesus in the Gospel today calls for vigilance in our fidelity to our call to be his stewards and disciples. There will always be challenges and difficulties which we will be able to overcome with the graces, guidance and strength God provides. I am praying that all of us pray for a heart that is sensitive and open to the Spirit of God who will lead us to an authentic witnessing of how one prepares heart, mind, and spirit for the                 Commemoration of the Birth of Lord Jesus Christ. God bless, take care and be safe.

 

Love and prayers, 

 

Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
