FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – MAY 8TH, 2016

Last Tuesday night’s re-dedication of our Parish Chapel was absolutely beautiful! It’s amazing what we can do together as a parish family, I felt that it’s important that we update and improve our worship space, as best we can. That gives our Lord the glory and honor he rightly deserves! Again, my thank you to all who made his liturgy so beautiful and prayerful!

I want to thank Fr. Carlos for putting the liturgy together and to Scott Bataglia, our director of music, for providing uplifting music for our celebration. From now on we will be using the chapel every day (when something comes up) during the year including during Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter. This includes Wednesday! The only time Mass will be celebrated in the Church is at the 7PM Mass on Wednesday nights due to the beautiful novena that we offer in honor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

Congratulations to our second graders from our Catholic School of Excellence as they received Jesus for the first time in Holy Communion. A special thank you to the parents for their example and for encouraging their children to receive the Lord often in their lives.

I encourage you to take part in our parish mission this week after the 9am and 7pm Masses. What a wonderful opportunity we have to spend some time in prayer and refection as we strive to deeper our relationship with the Lord!
