Message From Our Pastor & News

PASTOR’S MESSAGE
Dear Friends,
“Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the priest of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.” (James 5:14) These words form the Letter of James, reminds us of the power of prayer and the importance of ministering to the sick.

There may be some people, for one reason or another, that cannot attend Holy Mass or cannot make their way to the Church. And although God makes Himself present to all people in all places, there is somethings supremely special in have God come to the sick in Holy Communion; we can remember the passage how Jesus went to Peter’s mother-in-law and healed her (Luke 4:38). What I am saying, is there may be people, whether they be family, friends or neighbors, that may need some sacrament: Communion, Confession or Anointing of the Sick. We can possibly save their spiritual life and their soul by asking them if they wish to receive any of these sacraments. And then we ourselves can contact the parish for them.

This is one of the greatest acts of charity. Its charity to care for their physical well-being, but its perfect charity to care for their spiritual wellbeing.

Together in Prayer
