My Dearest Parish Family,

God be with us always.

“Here we go again . . .” I heard one priest say this a few years back when we were having a meeting discussing the Lenten Season. It seemed to me that to him it looked like the “same ol’ same ol’”, going through the motions, rituals, Liturgical Celebrations, etc. at this time of the year. On the other hand, this morning I saw a small card in the vestibule that reads boldly: “Best Lent Ever!”

     So how do we make a Journey through this Lenten and Easter Season that will be relevant, meaningful, and life-changing that will have its effects beyond the days and weeks that comprise these seasons. Repeating the latter phrase: “Best Lent Ever!”

     Making a conscious choice to engage God’s invitation is a start. The invitation to “return to Him with your whole heart and to rend our hearts and not just our garments.” Let us spend Lent focused on the DO’S (Prayer, Fasting & Abstinence and Almsgiving) and not just the DON’TS (No Meat, No Candy, etc.).

     Our Parish is providing many ways and means to engage and journey meaningfully through these coming days. We have the Mass with Anointing of the Sick, Lenten Dinners, Stations of the Cross, Lenten Day of Penance, among many. We have Outreach Ministries that are always in need of volunteers: Burrito Ministry, Recycling, etc.

     This weekend, Pat Walloch and German Roa will be speaking with you regarding the Annual PSA. This also is a perfect opportunity for us to listen, pray and respond to the appeal not just as an almsgiving because of an obligation. Please listen, pray and reflect on the message they will share with you. The response should come from a grateful heart that is willing to pledge and to participate more fully in the mission entrusted to us by Jesus our Lord.

     We shall also be handing out a book: “Rediscover Jesus,” which will be the topic of the videos of Faith Testimonies of parishioners like you who strive to have a more dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ leading to genuine Discipleship and Stewardship. I do hope we all benefit from their witnessing.

God bless and take care.

Love and prayers,

Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
