From the Pastor

My Dear Parish Family,

This weekend we give thanks to Almighty God for all those who have worked so hard to make our Country great.  This is a place where we can practice our religion and defend and discuss our Faith openly.  There are so many people in today’s day and age that struggle to find a job to help make ends meet.  To those of us who find ourselves in that situation, do not give up hope!  Always remember that God will truly show us the way, provided that we trust Him and faithfully persevere with courage.  Our God will never abandon us or our families in times of need.  This must also be a call to us who are fortunate to have work and perhaps are even very successful in it.  We must always be quick to recognize the needs of our fellow countrymen.  We must never forget the weak, the poor, the marginalized or the oppressed.  One of the greatest gifts that our faith can give us is the ability to see Christ in everyone.  Let us be grateful this weekend for all those who labor and justly deserve a bit of rest.   Finally, let us remember that we do not live to work but instead we work so that we can live! 

 

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