As we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost, the close of the Easter season, and our Church’s birthday, let us always be reminded of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives… May the grace of the Lord’s glorious resurrection be received by everyone as a timeless gift that paves the way to our eternal destiny in heaven. Let the joy of Easter spread through your homes and families. And keep the peace of the Risen Lord in the stillness of your heart. God bless you! Fr. Boyet
Pentecost weekend was a weekend of great celebrations! In returning to the Original Order of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism/Confirmation/First Eucharist), Religious Education students, some adults, and students of St. Theresa School, received the Sacrament of Confirmation, some receiving their 1st Eucharist and one student being baptized into the faith.

Respect Life Prayer: Heavenly Father, the beauty and dignity of human life was the crowning of your creation. You further ennobled that life when your Son became one with us in His incarnation. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect it from the moment of conception until the last moment at death. Give us courage to speak with truth and love and with conviction in defense of life. Help us to extend the gentle hand of mercy and forgiveness to those who do not reverence your gift of life. To all, grant pardon for the times we have failed to be grateful for your precious gift of life or to respect it in others. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
