Greetings!

It was truly wonderful to see the many people who attended mass and were able to receive communion this past weekend! Even with all the new rules, things started to feel more normal and the church felt less strange and more like home.

We hope that more and more parishioners are able to rejoin us in the coming weeks. However, we will always remain mindful of and present to those who are not able to celebrate in person with us, even under normal circumstances.

Our world is hurting in many ways, and it is increasingly apparent that the answers will not come from flawed people and policies, but from God, who is the Author of all Life. And He who created and cares for each sparrow will most certainly care for our every need if we but "acknowledge [Him]" (cf. Mt 10:29-33).

Jesus is always calling us into relationship with Him, knowing that he can satisfy the desires of our hearts, because it was He who gave them to us in the first place. We invite you in a special way to engage that relationship by joining us on Friday, which is the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, for the Diocesan Day of Reconciliation. Details below.

Jesus is ever eager to replace our hurts, anxieties, sins, and sorrows with His love, peace, forgiveness, and mercy. So appeal to his Most Sacred Heart and receive Him in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Then, this weekend we can all receive Him in physical or spiritual Communion as we journey together as brothers and sisters in Christ, journeying together in discipleship and hope.

God Bless and Peace!
