Happy Labor Day Everyone,
God bless America. God’s blessings be with you all. We give thanks to God for the work of our human hands that have served God and benefited our country and everyone living in it. Please know that everything you do, at home as well as at your workplace, benefits you, your family and everyone else locally and worldwide. Let us always put our God-given strength, skills and talents to good use as long as we live. Let no one allow his/her laziness to get the best of them, but rather always stay busy and active. This weekend let us celebrate the fruits of our hard work and labor with joy and thanksgiving to God and to one another. God bless America, our homeland!
September is here and every student is back to school. Let us keep them near to our hearts and prayers every day. Our children will be beautiful before God and others when they learn to receive and to live each day with God’s blessings and grace. Although we cannot change them, we can always love them and pray for them and support them with Catholic education and formation for their hearts, minds and souls. God bless our children and all of God’s children, especially the unborn so that they too will have the right to be born and to be with their families and friends.
Construction: Unfortunately, the church’s sewage line collapsed about 15 feet underground, west of the church. We had sewage backed up in the rest rooms and in the air handling room. We had to cut across the concrete road and dig down and replace all the old original pipe with new PVC pipe. This problem has been around for a long time for we often had to snake the sewage line, thinking that it was tree roots but that was not the case. The clay sewage pipes collapsed. Thankfully we got it fixed in one day. This should last for many years. We have to wait for the ground to settle before we can pour new concrete in the driveway. Thank you everyone for your patience and your faithful stewardship that helped pay for a must-fix problem. No one can live without food nor can we live without a bathroom.
Happy Labor Day Everyone. God bless America and all those who live in it, Fr. Hien
