|From the Pastor|
My Dear Parish Family,
As we approach the Feast of All Saints on November 1, the Church draws our focus towards the promise of eternity by first honoring our Saints. These men and women, our 'heroes in heaven’, are always there to intercede for us. As our eighth grade Religious Education students begin their preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation, they will each choose a Saint to honor by taking their name for their Confirmation name. What a wonderful opportunity this is for all of us to find out more about the Saint that we may be named for! I encourage you to learn more about your patron Saint and to ask them for their prayers. As newly canonized Saint John Paul II said to all those youth gathered for World Youth Day 2002:
"How many Saints, especially young Saints, can we count in the Church’s history! In their love for God their heroic virtues shone before the world, and so they became models of life which the Church has held up for imitation by all…. Through the intercession of this great host of witnesses, may God make you too..... the Saints of the third millennium!”
We are all called to be great Saints! Please continue to pray for me as I will pray for you.
Saint John the Baptist, pray for us!
Rev. Brian Patrick Woodrow
