From the Pastor

My Dear Parish Family,          

I hope and pray that your Lenten season is going well and that you are finding time to increase your prayer life and discover new ways to help those who are in need. Even in the midst of Lent, amongst the snow banks that have yet to melt, we still have time to warm our hearts with fellowship and cheer! This past month we saw so many of our Altar Servers and Maidens of Miraculous Medal come out for the annual ice skating party which was a tremendous success! The St. Valentine's Day dance was the biggest yet and everyone danced the night away! Our St. Vincent DePaul Society has been formed with very enthusiastic leaders.  And even amid the snow and inclement weather, we still celebrated yet another great movie night!  Recently some of the brave and bold of our parish joined our Grand Knight John Reynolds, Coach John McKenna and me and took the plunge into the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for Special Olympics. 

Our Parish is fortunate to have many social events and gatherings still ahead! Sometimes we don't want to leave the comfort of our home this time of year but we know that when we make the effort to go out and socialize with our fellow brothers and sisters we are better for it. I encourage you to come out for our dances and social events so that we can continue to grow as one family in Christ. I also challenge you to bring your friends along. Our Lord tells us that where two or three are gathered, there He is in our midst.  He was not limiting that to just liturgical events!  Remember, St. Paul made it very clear that you can recognize a Christian by the way they love one another. Please continue to pray for me as I will pray for you.

Saint John the Baptist pray for us!
Rev. Brian Patrick Woodrow
