My Dearest Parish Family,
God be with us always.
Let me first express my sincere gratitude to all who responded generously to participate in our 2020 PSA Appeal that reminds us of “Our Faith, Our Future.” Thank you to those who turned in Pledge Cards and PSA Forms over the last weeks. Your kind participation is a form of evangelization.
This very good number of gifts we have received as a testament to participate in the Ministries of the Diocese that serve the needy. I have also presented the line-up of our Parish Projects from what is a priority to what can enhance the facilities that we use for our Pastoral Activities. On behalf of our Parish Family let me give a shout out to Felipe Mozqueda who devoted a great number of his time and talent to producing the PSA Videos and many of the videos shown in our Parish.
I will be devoting most of this letter in expressing gratitude to the members of our Parish Family who practiced stewardship in response to the opportunities and challenges for us to become truly a Dynamic Catholic Parish.
Those who have supported our new initiatives in our Youth Ministry especially the XLT and Youth Mass. There have been efforts to integrate all our RE formation prayer moments so our young people can see that faith formation is a progressive journey.
Next weekend will be our Women’s Welcome Retreat around 25 parishioners have signed up for this pioneering experience to personal and communal renewal. This is hopefully the first among many that will enrich the faith life of our parishioners. The Men’s Retreat will be on the last weekend of March and there are more men needed to register as a participant. May I humbly ask for your prayers to lift up these two important pastoral activities to the grace and power of God.
Over this next week, we prepare for our Emergency Preparedness Training offered on Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th by the Orange County Sheriff's Department. In preparation, our staff will be attending an all day training on Tuesday, March 3rd. We invite you to join us on these days to be prepared as a Parish Family.
We have begun the Spirit and Discipline of Lent which is the time for an intense prayer and penance to grow in our spiritual life and relationship with God. By the way, have you signed up for the “Best Lent Ever?” God bless and take care.
Love and prayers,
Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
