From the Pastor

My Dear Parish Family,

This weekend, with great joy, I am attending my childhood friend’s wedding.  My friend Dan and I met around the sixth grade, in of all places, Church!  That almost sounds too cliché, doesn’t it? But the truth of the matter is that out of a friendship forged in service to our Lord, a great, long and healthy bond was kept and enjoyed.  He met his girlfriend while serving in Africa as a doctor, volunteering his gifts and talents in service of the poor and needy.  I have no doubt that because of his efforts to maintain a Christian lifestyle and his desire to serve God in the ways that he has been called to do, that his future will be a blessed one. 

Today, in many ways, marriage is under attack by our secular culture.  We must remember to stay strong and feed our relationships with prayer and self service to God.  We do this by praying together and by making sure that we see God in the poor and the needy and the less fortunate.  Working together as a couple can make a world of difference!  Let us remember that in order to have a healthy relationship forged in love between a man and a woman, it really is in fact three people that make it work: him, her and God!  Please continue to pray for me as I will pray for you.

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