    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

 

August 14, 2022

 

Dearest Parish Family,

 

God be with us always.

 

In the next few days and weeks, we shall be honoring two important Marian Celebrations: The Feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother and her Queenship an honor bestowed to her from the moment she gave her “Fiat” to Angel Gabriel to be the Handmaid of the Lord as the Mother of our Lord and Savior – Emmanuel . . .God is with us.

 

May these Marian feasts remind us of the how our Blessed Mother is a witness to the divine grace in action. Her Assumption lifts us up to the reality of the divine destiny of eternal life in our true home in heaven. The Queenship bestowed upon her is an exaltation to manifest her role as the perfect disciple of our Lord Jesus fulfilling the role with a valiant faith and steadfast love.

 

Last Saturday was our Celebration of the Mass with the Anointing of the Sick. One of the proposed services of the Emmanuel Ministry is to offer the Ark of Prayer as a venue for praying together for someone who is experiencing health crisis and their loved ones. The members of the Emmanuel Ministry hope to provide a place for coming together to experience the loving and comforting presence of God.

 

Above the Choir area in our Church, you will find displayed several of the symbols of our Annual Camino. There is the Circle of Peace a reminder of our responsibility to strive for always for peace. Let us not forget to pray for the people of Ukraine. There is also the Cross of Healing where we attached our individual and communal experiences of hurts. The two boxes contain our contrite written confessions of our mistakes and the other our commitment to a plan of action after having gone through the Camino. May these symbols be reminders of our Camino that day and inspire others to join next year.

 

To members of our Parish Family whose children are going back to school – we pray for your safety. We will also life you up to the Holy Spirit that you may experience opportunities to grow in your knowledge and wisdom. We hope that you continue to rebuild the friendship and relationship that contribute to your well-being.

 

Next week is our monthly collection of non-perishable food items for South County Outreach – I do hope that you have marked your calendars that is a good opportunity to respond within our means to the appeal for help our brethren in need.

 

May our Masses in Celebration of the Lord’s Day be holy moments when our hearts and spirit are set aflame with the love of God. May Holy Communion be truly a sacred experience when we are infused with divine grace and power to truly be Christian stewards and disciples. God bless, take care and be safe.

 

Love and prayers, 


Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
