Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Happy Summer! The month of June, is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Pope Francis invites us to pray, "Jesus, meek and humble of heart, transform our hearts and teach us to love God and our neighbor with generosity." He urges Catholics to look to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as a source of love and to bring Christ’s love “to the ends of the earth.” Click Here to pray the Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
There are so many great saints to celebrate in June, take time to learn about one of these great saints by looking Here. On June 11, our Church celebrates the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ or Corpus Christi. Take time to celebrate by participating in a Eucharistic procession at your parish on this day! It is a great way to worship and grow deeper in your faith!
Don't forget to celebrate all the dads and spiritual fathers on June 18! Father's Day is a great day. Thanks to all the amazing Fathers, whether you are here or in heaven.
If you are taking a summer vacation don't forget to visit different Catholic Churches along the way! Make your vacation a family pilgrimage as you travel. Check out the resources below.
Please let us know how we can better serve you and your parish as we carry out our mission of evangelization to help parishes bring people to an encounter with Christ and a deeper appreciation of the Catholic faith, igniting a joyful witness of their faith to others.

Cathy, Deacon Louie, Beth, Liliana, Andy, Cindy and Rosario
