From the Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,

In our Gospel passage today, we read the story of the “Good Samaritan”. I believe that each one of us can tell a story about a moment in our lives when we gave help to someone in need. The “Good Samaritan” is needed to be spoken and lived each day. Over these past months I have met many people who are good but seem to be missing a basic value of the “Good Samaritan”, that is the acknowledgement of God being present.

In these next weeks I will be speaking to you on how you might share your gifts in being examples of the Good Samaritan!

My Heartfelt Thanks!

As I transition back into ministry, I thank you for your kind words and welcome to me. I know the power of your prayer to the Lord Jesus for me. Your prayer and concern for me was seen in many different ways. I look forward to my ministry at Our Lady of Grace and ask you to continue to pray for me and our parish community

Peace,
Monsignor Martin P. Ryan
