From Our Pastor Our Pastor's Page
October 14, 2018
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This past Wednesday I embarked on a pilgrimage to Italy. Our group consists of a number of parishioners and friends who are journeying to Assisi and Rome to honor Saint Francis and Saint Clare. Saint Francis felt compelled by Jesus Christ to renew the Church of the 13th century by centering his life and mission on proclaiming the poor and humble Christ. His intense love for Our Lord overflowed in His joyful service of the Gospel. By walking in the footsteps of St. Francis and St. Clare, we hope to help renew the Church of the 21st Century.

Please be assured of my prayers for our community. May the intercession of the Saints draw each of us to a deeper relationship, a deeper love, of Our Lord.

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas
