    December 10, 2017

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
     
    In this Sunday’s bulletin, you will find a brochure presenting the Mission Statement produced by the Parish Pastoral Council.  This is the fruit of the members’ reflection of the last year and more.  In the process of reflection, the Pastoral Council had the benefit of input from the Parish Finance Council.  This document should be considered as a tool for reflection and discussion ....
     
    The Pastoral Council thanks the many members of our parish community who visited the various services and ministries present in the Scavi last Sunday for our Ministry Fair.  A number of parishioners have already indicated their interest in offering their time and talent  ...
     
    During the month of November, a number of parishioners provided particular intentions for the Holy Souls.  During the year, a collective intention will be offered for the Holy Souls of deceased parishioners, family members and friends.  In addition, low Masses will be celebrated ...
     
    Next Tuesday, December 12, is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe – Patroness of the Americas.  All are invited to join our indigenous brothers and sisters in a special way through prayer and acts of solidarity.
     
    Fr. Kevin
