My Dear Parishioners,
Happy Fall! Yes, the Fall season is here for us to enjoy and to see the work of God in nature. Please breathe in the fresh air and give thanks to God for your life, your loved ones and God’s promise of eternal life to all those who love Him and each other. October is the most beautiful time of the year for me. I enjoy the cooler weather with no bugs, flies, etc.…outside. I also love the golden colored leaves of October. Also, October is also a good time to go fishing. Fish must feed before winter, so go fishing, my friends. Catch them and enjoy them with your family. I can’t wait for the end of October/beginning of November for the deer rut will start, and I can call in the big bucks. It’s so fun and amazing to see how bucks behave during the rut. The downside is driving during the rut season, especially at dusk and dawn. Deer will come from nowhere and run into vehicles. Please be careful driving during the rut.
Please join me in thanking our Knights of Columbus for their loving ministry in our parish. Year round, they provide coffee, donuts, milk and juice after Sunday Masses. I always look forward to their coffee and donut times so that I can have some too. I also love to see parishioners getting together over a cup of coffee and visiting with each other. I love to tease them too. Please join us for a cup of coffee; life is short so we should spend time with others. Two weeks ago, our Knights went an extra mile to serve us breakfast. That was so wonderful of them. I don’t think many people have come to appreciate what our Knights have done for us. Please remember that we are one church family; we are to support each other and to enjoy our friendship. These are golden opportunities for us to be a church family. On the behalf of my brother Knights, a special thank you to those who have pre-ordered BBQ to support them this weekend. It’s a win-win situation for our Knights and for you. You’ll have some good food to eat and you will also support our Knights. Thank you!
Finally, please pray daily for your loved ones. Don’t forget to pray for our children at All Saints Catholic School, our children in our PSR program and those who are preparing themselves for their sacrament of Confirmation in March. Thank you to our teachers and helpers for educating and forming our children into persons of Jesus Christ. Truly appreciated and blessed to have you all, Fr. Hien
