Happy 2020 Everyone,
Blessings from our Lord Jesus, His Mother Mary, Saint Joseph and all the angels and saints be with you all. 2020 is here and there is nothing more important every day than to know that we are loved by so many people, and especially by God with all His Holy angels and saints. This weekend, we’ll celebrate the the feast of the Baptism of the Lord to remind us that through our baptism, we are all one with the Holy Trinity. God is with us and in us. God is dwelling in us. Let us love who we are for we are God’s temples. Our bodies and souls are images and likeness of God, who is invisible and eternal. Yes, if we truly love God, we will live forever for all things are possible with God.
A reminder that the readings for Mass on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 will be from Tuesday of the First Week of Ordinary Time. Next weekend, January 19, our readings will be from the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Also, on Sunday, January 19, there will be no 11am Vietnamese Mass so that everyone and I can attend the diocesan Vietnamese New Year Mass at Church of the Magdalen at 3pm, followed by the dragon dance and reception dinner in the gym for everyone.
All Saints Tết Nguyên Đán—on Saturday, January 25 is the Vietnamese New Year Day. We will have a special Vietnamese Mass at 10 am to celebrate the new lunar year, followed by a luncheon in the Fischer Center for everyone.
Now that our children are back to school, parents, please keep them healthy and don’t send them to school sick. Make sure that they have plenty of sleep every night. Spend time with them to help them with their homework every night. Always remind them to honor their elders and to be respectful to all people and their properties. I would like to meet with all 1st confession/communion parents and children on Wednesday, January 22, at 6:30pm in the Fischer Center. Thank you. It’s very important that every family attend Holy Mass and pray together as a family as often as you can at home and even when you dine out. Lastly, please pray for the following children as they are growing so fast in their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual journey at All Saints Catholic school. 7th Graders with Mrs. Jean Gengler: Gabrielle Bates, Faith Brown, Nautica Cash, Victoria Cruz, Thien-Y Do, Jaydin Embry, Jonathan Fajardo, Jonathan Goheen, Ethan Hay, Johnny Hengel, Adriel Hernandez, Lena Jones, Patrick Lawrence, Abigail Le, Lily Logan, Olivia Meier, Faustine Nguyen, Kevin Nguyen, Alex Pham, Skyler Pham, Daniel Rocha, Christopher Sanchez, Alexandria Stewart, Xavier Tejeda and Lia Tran. 8th Graders with Miss Nikki Erker: Xitlalli Aguilar-Maldonado, Brandon Chandler, Cole Cooper, Julien Dickerson, Vy Do, Arianna Guzman, Luis Hernandez Herrera, Colton Hill, April Huynh, Lucas Jones, Isabel Landwehr, Emily Le, Annie Nguyen, Tammy Nguyen, Jesus Rocha, Joshua Sanchez, Madalyn Spaulding, Kevine Tchoukedjoup, Alondra Tejeda, Dylann Thompson, James Tran and Kara Whitaker.
