My Dear Parishioners,
First, blessings from our Lord with heavenly prayers from our Blessed Mother Mary be with you all. If you are reading this message before Friday, a reminder that we are obligated to attend the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Holy Day Masses are Wednesday, August 14th at 6:30pm and Thursday at 12 noon & 6:30pm. Please bring your entire family to church to be loved by our Mother Mary and to be blessed by our Lord Jesus. I am looking forward to being with you again.
Second, please join me in welcoming back our staff, teachers and students, especially the many new ones, for the new school year. I am sure that they are excited to be back to school to be with their friends and to continue learning. I was so surprised to see how much some of them have physically grown just this summer. We are blessed to have many new students this year. Welcome back to school, God’s little children. We love you all.
Third, in this week’s bulletin is the parish financial statements for everyone to view. We were blessed with many wonderful and faithful stewards in our parishioners. They are the ones making the difference in our church and school, for the spiritual and educational benefits of others. Thank you, thank you! Please do nothing less than what you have done in the past for the love of God and the education and formation of our children. You can see that we need a lot of money to pay for our high school students and for the operation of our All Saints Catholic school. We love our children and we are committed to providing them with the best education and formation of their hearts, minds and souls. They are the future of our Catholic Church, our families and the USA. They are the future wonderful teachers, doctors, nurses, Catholic parents, and many other professions, including evangelizers of the Gospel like myself. Let us support them with our love, prayers and good deeds and with our time, talent and treasure.
Holy Mary, pray for us all--Fr. Hien
