My Dear Parishioners,
God’s blessings be with you all, especially to all mothers as we celebrate Mother‘s Day weekend with them. May God bless our beloved moms with His blessings and love. We know that they love us dearly as their children and grandchildren. To let our mothers know that we love them, I will pray over them during our Holy Masses this weekend. We thank God for their gift of life to all of us and their unconditional love for us since the day we were conceived. We pray that their love for us will be like Mary’s love to her family, always true and strong. Please know, moms, that we need you in this life. You are the best mother God could have blessed us with. Thank you! Happy Mother’s Day to all moms.
As a church family, we are blessed with all the children of our parish. We thank God for them too, especially twenty of them who received their first sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion last weekend. It was so good to see so many people attending their special Mass and witnessing their love for Jesus in the Holy Eucharist with His Body and Blood. God bless our children. We also thank God for our teachers who formed and educated our children. Please know that our children will remember the love and lessons you have taught them. Thank you!
Finally, the school year is ending, please be sure to pray daily for your children so that they may finish their academic year well. Everyone will be very busy with many graduations, parties and traveling but please remember that God must be first every day. Please be careful and always keep God alive in your heart, mind and soul. I am looking forward to the many school activities with our church and with my family. God bless you all, Fr. Hien
