My Dear Parishioners,
The Lord be with you! Last Monday, we entrusted our Grand Knight Chuck Steven to our Lord with Holy Mass. He was put to eternal rest at Ascension Cemetery. We give thanks to God for Chuck and the many wonderful and faithful members of our parish who loved and served our church and school for many years. May they now inherit eternal life with Our Lord in His heavenly kingdom. Please keep our Knights of Columbus council and members in your prayers as they are discerning the future of their council, especially with a new grand knight. May we be blessed with a new leader who is willing to sacrifice his life with his skills and talents to the church at All Saints.
ROOFS: a few weeks ago, the strong wind that hit us all damaged about 30 feet of the school’s roof. Thankfully we caught it right away and called roofers to work on it. It’s fixed now. Since last Monday, our roofers have been working on the dome of the church. We had to install a new roof on the top of the dome and also a new roof above the main part of the church. There were 12 pieces that were rotten, so insurance would not pay for the repair. For this reason, I am asking for your help to pay for this work. In the foyer of the church, you can see that I have another statue and shrine of Mary, to be sold (live auction) at the Vietnamese New Year’s celebration, on Tuesday, February 1st. Everyone is invited to join us for the Holy Mass at 5:30pm, followed by a celebration in the Fischer Center. If you wish to help pay for the repair of our roofs, please be sure to write in the memo line of your check - “church roof.” Thanks a million for we are blessed to have each other, Fr. Hien
