My Dear Parishioners,
Blessings from our Lord be with you all. Now that we are back to school and we are adapting to the new changes due to the coronavirus, I sincerely want to thank everyone for your patience and your open-minded understanding. Patience is a virtue and being open minded is the most important concept for anyone living in America. Living in America, regardless of where a person or his/her ancestors came from, such as their original culture, language, color of skin or religion, we must be open minded in order to see the beauty in others that God sees in all of us. In other words, to see Jesus in them. I personally believe that everyone, the old and the young, the healthy and the sick, the born and the unborn, the native Americans and the immigrants, we all matter, we are all precious and sacred. That is what God sees in us all. Let us love one another as our Lord taught us so that we may be with God forever in heaven.
On Monday, September 7th, we celebrated our Labor Day. It is a reminder to all of us that we are blessed living in America with our streets, homes, food, water, electricity, hospitals; we are blessed to have our farmers and servicemen and women, etc.… Everything we have comes from our labors--the work of one another. We need each other for we all are contributors to our society. Personally, I am thankful to those who built my truck so that I do not have to walk to see my family and I don’t have to walk for days and weeks to my favorite places for fishing and hunting. Let us never take anyone or anything for granted. Let everyone living in America continue making our country beautiful with our hearts, hands, and skills. God bless America and all those who live to serve others, Fr. Hien
