Out of love and care for our brothers and sisters, if you or someone you know,  are willing to run errand for someone in the community, please let us know.

Let me share a bit of the readings today. The spread of erly Christianity was lightning speed and wildfire. Although at first the message was limited to a certain group of people, eventually, the proclamation of the Lord Jesus was shared to a large number of individuals. This transition from exclusive to inclusive was not easy. Any change is difficult for the people. And yet, all the while Luke tells us that "the hand of the Lord was with them". They knew with full certainty that the Lord guided, directed and blessed them. We are told "a great number who believed turned to the Lord." In fact, when "Barnabas who was sent from Jerusalem, saw the grace of God, he joined, rejoiced with them and encouraged them to remain faithful to the Lord in firmness of heart for he was a good man, filled with the holy spirit and faith." 

As we devote the month of May for the Blessed Mother Mary, may the Lord continue to keep us all safe from harm, protect under Mary’s maternal care, shower us with the blessings of gratitude, joy, peace and love.

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

 

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.
