Niech Bedzie Pochwalony Jezus Chrystus! Praise be Jesus Christ!
Dear Parishioners and Friends:
We are reminded in the Gospel words of Jesus that “many are called but few are chosen". We should never fall in the mindset that all will be saved regardless of the lives they choose to live.
The fall season before Christmas is a very busy time in our church and community. Please see and keep the insert page of calendar of events and special services that will take place in the next couple of months.
In this beautiful month of October that is dedicated to the Blessed Mother as Queen of the Holy Rosary, we pray a decade of the rosary after both Sunday Masses.
Next Sunday October 22nd is the feast day of Saint John Paul II. May we ever be grateful for the pontificate of this Polish Pope and always remember the special encounter our parish had with him at Shearwater Airport in 1984.
