Fr. Maro’s Weekly Message

Dear Parishioners,

This Sunday we have the installation of the new members of the Parish Pastoral Council. We thank the previous members of the council and we welcome new ones. We especially thank our former Parish Pastoral Council Chair, Earl Parrish, for his generosity in giving his time, talents, and treasures in leading our Pastoral Council. Let us pray for him as he continues to serve our Lord and the Church in other ways and means.

I am grateful for the members of the Parish Pastoral Council with its new Chair, Maria Cisneros, and Parish Pastoral Council Secretary, Vicky Weiss. Thank you for responding to the call of our Lord in serving Him and helping me lead our parish community.

The Parish Pastoral Council is an important part of the parish community and it serves to help me as a pastor in addressing the pastoral and spiritual needs of the parish community. With our parish staff and my two councils (Pastoral and Administrative Council), and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and our Blessed Mother’s intercession, I am confident that our parish will continue to grow and will continue to help us on our journey to holiness.

Let us pray for our Parish Pastoral Council and all those who serve the Lord in our parish. May the Holy Spirit truly be present in all their endeavors in our parish community. God bless us all.

In Christ, Fr. Maro
