My Dear Parishioners,
Thank God that we are living in the new year of 2024. Please be aware that in every moment of this earthly life, someone has passed away whether they want it or not or ready or not, the rich or the poor, the healthy or the sick. No one can escape death; it will happen to every person. Hopefully our turn is not very soon so that we have more time to love God, to worship Him and to serve Him. Let us continue praying for the salvation of all & the faithful departed; so that they will be with our Lord and God for eternal life. This is also a reminder that we must be living as faithful members of God’s family with our time, talent and treasure today so that we may be with God in heaven. We will be rewarded for all the good that we do and the faith that we profess and live. We also need to pray for those who willingly reject God that they may change
their mind before time runs out so that they may inherit the salvation gained from Jesus dying for us. Willfully rejecting God is the end of one's life.
Finally, if you have not returned your stewardship forms for 2024 as well as your donation to help the church pay for the school’s heating and air system, please know that we need your financial help. You can spread your donations out for however long you need. Every family is expected to give something, big or small, because providing heating and air for our children is a must at our church and school. Also because we want our little ones to know that we love them and we care for their well being. Your generosity is needed. Thank you to all those who have donated since April of 2023. Please know that the Lord will bless you greatly because you
have trusted Him with your life and treasure. Thanks be to God, Fr. Hien.
Father Hien Nguyen
