Letter From Father Lester , 9-17-20

Beloved Parishioners,

Summer is almost over, but we still continue fighting the pandemic and wildfires. I have been thinking of you a lot and I pray for you and your family every day. May God grant you courage, strength, safety and a blessed life. Always be grateful, have hope and thrive.

This weekend we are offering our prayers for the souls of our beloved dead, especially our parishioners who have recently died. May we also include in our prayers the families who are in sorrow, that God may grant them comfort. Next weekend we will offer our prayers for our parishioners who are sick.

I would like to offer all of you my heartfelt gratitude for you generous love of our church. Many of you who are still not able to make it to church at this time continue to give support, you never stop giving. God has been so good to our parish church because of your generous sharing. We are so blessed to have you, our gracious parishioners! May God pour upon you abundant blessings.

RCIA started last Monday in the Parish Hall, following the guidelines of physical distancing and facial coverings. It was a great start and we thank Ron and Leslea LaGro for their commitment to journey with those wanting to learn about our Catholic faith. CCD classes will begin this Thursday with a parent meeting in the Parish Hall. Please pray for our children, their families, and the volunteers who are working so hard to make CCD possible during these difficult times.
