Fr. Maro’s Weekly Message

Fr. MaroDear Parishioners,

A new school year is once again upon us. To our young, I wish you well in this coming school year! It is a new beginning with new and infinite possibilities. Remember to keep the faith and pray always.

For those who are going away for college, take an item of faith with you and use it as a reminder of home. Remember always that God is with you.

For those of us who will remain here, there are so many things to be excited about. The Adult Faith Formation classes, RCIA, Children’s Religious Education and sacramental reparations are among the many things that you can be involved in. Please prayerfully consider how you can be of help in the many ministries that we have in our community and help yourselves grow more in the relationship that you have with God and with others.

In this time of challenges our Church is facing, let us strengthen ourselves in our knowledge of faith and stand firm against the temptations of Satan for us to give up and forsake our identity as Catholics. Let us instead hold on tighter to Him who can truly defend us.

God is with us and He will never abandon us. Let us never abandon Him too. May God continue to bless us as we begin a new year of exciting and limitless possibilities. To God be the glory!

In Christ,
Fr. Maro
