My Dear Parishioners of All Saints,
Blessings from our Lord Jesus be with you all. The month of August is here, may each one of us enjoy each day of our lives with our loved ones, especially in these last weeks before the new school year. Let us love one another and always long to be one with Jesus through our prayers and worship at Holy Mass. Only at Holy Communion during the Holy Mass can we become one with Jesus in His holy body, soul, and divinity. He says, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” Don’t forget that our souls always thirst for Jesus alone.
Yes, only Jesus can feed us with the true bread from heaven. When we truly love Jesus, He will raise us to eternal life in heaven. Please join me with our love, prayers, and sympathy for the family of Binh Tran. Binh was a faithful parishioner who attended our Sunday Masses faithfully with his family. He went to bed Sunday night and died in his sleep. We celebrated his funeral Mass at All Saints on Friday, July 23rd. I was very sad at his funeral Mass. I knew Binh well because he helped our church and school with his electrical skills. At his funeral, his boss and his wife from McPherson also came. Of course, I recognized them right away because they were my faithful and generous parishioners at St. Joseph’s, McPherson. They also fed me many times at their homes, and I hunted on their private land. They told me that Binh was working on St. Joseph’s Church last before he passed away. Binh was truly a good man. All Saints Catholic church and school needs more parishioners with their skills to help take care of what we have. So, if you are gifted in electrical, plumbing, heating and air, handyman work, or even mowing, etc.… and want to volunteer for our church, please let us know. Do you have an extra microwave/large fan that you don’t need? We can use them here, just bring them to the church office. Thanks, Fr. Hien
PS. Parents, please register your child/children to attend our Catholic school if you haven’t done so.
