The Steubenville Missionaries are coming back to the Catholic Community next week. We're extremely excited to join them as they evangelize us on spring break. Again, I used the word 'evangelize', easy to say than done. It's a complex and complicated thing to do but worth it if you freely embrace it. As you know, there's a lot of preparation and commitment (spiritual, financial, logistics, etc) involved in their week-long stay. Please help me spread the word.  

 

It drizzled on the way to the 7am and 9am Masses. Isaiah post exilic words, "Just as from the heavens the rain and snow come down and do not return there till they have watered the earth, making it fertile and fruitful...So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me void... (Isaiah 55: 10-11)" is timeless. God's word is essential for our religious and spiritual growth. We run away or hide from it but we can't live without it. 

We especially pray for those who have been infected by the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and deeply affected by the growing global pandemic. We hope and pray that this will be contained earlier than later. 

We pray for the migrants and refugees, the incarcerated, victims of drug addiction and the opiod epidemic, the homebound, speedy recovery for the sick, hope for the terminally ill and the dying.  

We pray for the eternal repose of the souls of the parishioners who recently passed away and offer condolences, sympathy and consolation to the grieving families, relatives and friends. Rest assured, the gathered community  they are included in the prayers of the community.

Jesus Luzania, Hector Montano

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
