My Dear Parishioners,
Winter has come early this year. We can only hope that we will not have too many of the extreme cold days this winter. Please God! Personally, it was so good to see so many people attend our All Saints’ holy day of obligation Masses. May all the saints in heaven pray for us until we are all in heaven with them. Loving God and imitating the lives of the saints is who we are. We will have them with us now and forever.
Special thanks to all those who made it possible for us to celebrate our All Saints’ feast day with so much delicious food and fun together as a church family. I was so shocked to see so many people for the dinner. It was so fun, and we all went home happy and satisfied. May our Lord bless you all for you have shared your life, love and food with us. We are blessed to have each other. Thank you everyone.
