My Dear Parishioners,
Blessings and love from our Lord be with you all. Please know that I love you all. You are always in my daily prayer. I want you to know that you are loved much every day by our Lord, by our Blessed Mother and of course by all the angels and saints in heaven. Sometimes it is very difficult for us to know and to feel that we are loved by our families and friends or by our fellow parishioners. Please always trust in God and in one another. Please be aware that when we fail to know or to feel the love from others that it is not always meant to be so. It’s because we are not perfect; therefore, we don’t always know everything or feel everything like we should. Sometimes we are caught up in our unhappy situations and therefore, we fail ourselves and each other. Only when we make it to heaven will we know everything and feel everything perfectly. Let us work hard to be saintly each day with our true faith, love and life of service to one another.
I want you to know how much I also love our children at All Saints Catholic school and other children in our religion programs. We are blessed with many. They are the future of our church, country and families. I really want them to know our Catholic faith by living it out each day. Soon, you will see our children being involved at our Holy Masses, the heart of our Catholic faith. Our All Saints children and confirmation students will be singing and serving in many of our liturgical ministries at Holy Mass. I am so happy and excited for our children. Today, I ask parents and grandparents to please be sure to take your children to church, of course on time too would help, so that they can live out their Catholic faith. They will not be singing and praising God if you don’t bring them. They will not be lectors and greeters if you don’t bring them. Your help and prayers are needed for the good of our children.
Thank you, Fr. Hien
