My Dearest Parish Family,
God be with us always.
On behalf of our parish family, I would like to extend our Congratulations and Gratitude to Suzanne Loberg – Chair and Stacie Rego Co-chair of our 2018 VBS: “Shipwrecked.” It was wonderful to hear the sound of children talking, laughing and singing for the first half of the day last August 6th to 10th. I had the privilege of celebrating the Eucharist with the children it was a joyful and moving experience having the Church filled with the little voices with big hearts.
I would also like to thank those who made the One on One Healing Session with Fr. Momoy last Saturday. Many came from different parts of the Diocese to take advantage of the healing graces that God channels through him.
This weekend we have the Burger Bash sponsored by the Knights of Columbus that would be a nice family affair to build fellowship and have fun while enjoying handmade burger patties and not frozen. Hopefully you made time for this event and created wonderful memories to treasure. Thank you Brother Knights for providing us an opportunity to have this fellowship moment.
I will continue to encourage our parents to make sure their children are enrolled in our Religious Education Formation Programs on the different levels. Having the opportunity to continue their religious education program will help them develop a deeper relationship with Jesus.
These past weeks we have been reflecting on the Bread of Life series in the Gospel. St. Augustine said: “God is everything for all. If a person is hungry, God is bread; if one is thirsty, God is water; if in darkness, God is light; if naked, God is a robe of immortality.” Our Lord Jesus has been pointing to the mystery of the Eucharist in all the words he spoke to his disciples and the people who are in his presence.
It was a good timing for the liturgical posture change that our Bishop Kevin Vann has asked us to adopt starting this month. It recognizes the Real Presence of our Loving Lord Jesus – “My Lord and My God.” The posture of kneeling gives one the opportunity to recollect one’s heart and gather one’s thoughts as in a few moments we are given the privilege to hold the Precious Body and drink the Previous Blood of our Messiah. I am impressed on how our parish family has taken so easily to this change and made the most out of it to deepen their communion experience.
Our communion makes Jesus Christ dwell in us and strengthens us in our faith life journey. We can be the witnesses we are called to be because we have the grace and strength with the Spirit within each one of us. God bless and take care.
Love and prayers,
Fr. Thomas Paul K. Naval
