A Letter From Father Lester

Dearest Parish Family and Friends,

"If you desire to be holy, you must have a great love for the Holy Eucharist. It is the source and summit of the Christian life and the greatest gift that God has given us."
"The greatest temptation is pride. It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels."
~ ~ ~ St. Anthony of Padua

Happy Feast of St. Anthony!
I invite you to celebrate the feast of our Patron Saint tomorrow, June 13, with the celebration of Mass at 12 noon. It is an opportunity to give thanks to God for the abundant blessings he has bestowed on our great parish. Come also to celebrate our one Blessed Parish Family with the summer picnic at the parking lot on Saturday, June 15 at 6pm.

We extend our greetings to all Fathers, Grandfathers, and Great-grandfathers. May God bless all fathers that they may continue to be a reflection of God's love. There will be a blessing of fathers at all of the weekend masses.

I am sure you are enjoying the summer. Take care, and we keep each other in our prayers.

God loves you,
Fr. Lester
