Pastor's Office April 2, 2020
My dear friends in Christ,
I rejoice in your faithfulness and pray for you during these unprecedented and difficult times.
To help our parish family meet our spiritual needs during the Church’s holiest week of the year, I invite you to join with me, Father Tochi, and our Deacons in participating in our Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter Sunday Masses that you can watch through our live stream broadcasting.
Palms will be available for pick up outside the bell tower entrance and the parking lot entrance from 11a.m. until 4 p.m. Please bring canned, boxed or packaged foods for Saint Francis Home. Watch for our email messages for our Holy Week and Easter Mass schedule.
I ask that we join together in prayer offering our deepest gratitude to those in our parish, community and nationwide who are courageously and selflessly working to make sure we are all well and safe. We pray for everyone’s good health, safety and well-being. Trust that God is with you. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.—Philippians 4:6
The Lord has not abandoned us! We are here for you! I am more than grateful to Father Tochi, our Deacons, the parish staff and volunteers who continue to serve the parish in new ways during this difficult and ever-changing time.
Please know of my sincere love and concern for all of you and your families. I am humbled and so very thankful for your generous financial contributions! Your compassionate spirit of giving especially during these times of solitude, when we each have to carry our own personal crosses, is done so in the hope of Easter glory. I am holding you close to my heart and I continue to pray for you all each and every day.
May the blessings of Holy Week bring the joy of resurrected life for you and your loved ones this Easter.
Sincerely in Christ,
Reverend Monsignor William H. Carr, Pastor
