Letter of Father Lester, 6-10-21

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

“The devil is afraid of us when we pray and make sacrifices. He is also afraid when we are humble and good. He is especially afraid when we love Jesus very much.”
St. Anthony of Padua

We’ve got some rain! It’s refreshing and truly a blessing. How are you and your first week of June? I hope all is well with you and your family. I’m sure that many of you have plans to take a break and go for a vacation this summer. I will be missing you at church but know that I’ll keep you always in my prayers. Wherever you are, consider visiting a church, and never take a break or vacation from praying and living your faith.

On Sunday we celebrate St. Anthony Day, the feast of the patron saint of the parish in Mt. Shasta. It’s an opportunity for us to give thanks to God for His abundant blessings, and join the parish family for hospitality after the 9am mass to celebrate.

I would like to invite all fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers for a blessing in all of the Masses on Father’s Day weekend. At the same time, we offer our prayers for the souls of all fathers who have gone to rest. May God grant them everlasting life.

As we are moving slowly back to normal in our public celebration of the mass and sacraments, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the dedicated parishioners who offered services during these most difficult times. You are essential ministers and our super heroes! And for your endless support and generous gifts to the church, I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart.

May God bless our parishes. May God bless us all!

In Jesus, through Mary,
Fr. Lester
