Pastor’s Message: May 13, 2022

Dear Parish Family,
Christ is Risen!   Alleluia! Alleluia! 

Happy Easter! 

“I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13: 34-35). These words from this Sunday’s gospel passage brings together the whole meaning of the Paschal Mystery: Jesus died for us because of his unconditional love for all of us, and we are called to live this new life of unconditional love.

Let’s pray for ourselves and for one another that we may grow even stronger and more courageous in our efforts to love as Jesus has loved us. Through us, Jesus is making all things new.

May our God be praised in us!

God Bless,
Fr. Cyrus

Dear Parish Family,
Christ is Risen!   Alleluia! Alleluia!  Happy Easter! 

As we gather at Mass this weekend we offer our prayers in thanksgiving for the gift of the Eucharist which sustains us to eternal life, to our Blessed Mother, and for our own mothers who gave us the gift of life and love. May is a month dedicated in a special way to the the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Our Lord, and the Mother of us all.

On Mother’s Day we can’t help but smile as we think of all who shared their motherly love with us. It might also bring a tear or two as we recall the memories of dear mothers who are no longer with us.

Wherever we are this Mother’s Day, we can be comforted and uplifted by the thought of the one beautiful Mother, standing by the Cross of her Son, accepting her role as mother of us all.

How can we best honor our moms? By listening to the words of our heavenly Mother, who tells us, “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5)

This Sunday, our First Holy Communion is a celebration for the whole community at our regular 9am and 11am Masses.

The students are excited to share not only with their families, but with everyone in the parish. Join us as we celebrate our community’s youngest members, through this beautiful sign of unity.

Our First Communion children will join in procession to crown the Blessed Virgin Mary statue during the11:00am Mass.

God Bless,

Fr. Cyrus

Dear Parish Family,

Happy Easter! 
In today’s Gospel, Jesus greets his disciples with the gift of peace and the gift of the Holy Spirit. Jesus also commissions his disciples to continue the work that he has begun. The Holy Spirit binds us together as a community of faith and strengthens us to bear witness to Jesus’ Resurrection.
It was a wonderful sight seeing so many of our parishioners as we celebrated The Triduum, and all the Easter Sunday Masses.
Thank you to all who helped make our celebrations holy, joyful and beautiful.
I will be on vacation for the next few weeks. The parish will be in good hands with Father Francis Amodio, O. Carm, for masses and all other necessary needs of the parish.
I wish you a very blessed Easter Season. I will keep you in my prayers and ask that you keep me in yours.
May we all renew our belief and hope in the enduring promise of Christ’s Resurrection, and the grace of the Risen Christ be with you and your loved ones this throughout the Easter Season.
God Bless,
Fr. Cyrus

Dear Parish Family,
Our long Lenten wait is over! Easter has come again! We raise our voices in singing “Alleluia! Christ is Risen! Alleluia! Alleluia! Happy Easter! 
This weekend we begin the 50 days of the Easter Season. The Gospel tells us about the disciples’ discovery of the empty tomb. They did not yet understand that Jesus had risen from the dead. We are invited to reflect upon a most amazing gift of faith in Jesus and his Resurrection.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone, to those who have returned to worship in person and those who are unable to come in person, as we celebrate the beautiful gift of life that God has blessed each of us with.
It is important to gather as a faith community to remember and celebrate what God has done for us
May the blessings and joy of the Easter Season fill your hearts and homes with peace, and love.
Fr. Cyrus
