From the Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,       

On Saturday, December 2, the Strategic Planning Task Force will be sponsoring a workshop for our parish leaders. The leaders workshop will be conducted by Patrick Turner, the Diocesan Director of Strategic Planning and Patrick Donovan the Director of the Diocesan Leadership Institute. The workshop will assist our lay leaders in developing their leadership skills and assist in asking the right questions to plan for our future.

         The Leadership Workshop will be held on Saturday, December 2 from 9:00 am – Noon in the Parish Center. More information to follow. Please save the date.

   I would like to extend to you and your families a very special blessing for “Thanksgiving”. We have much to be thankful for in the gifts given to us by God. I hope that you will be able to join us for our Parish Thanksgiving Mass, at 9:00 am on Thanksgiving Day. The Knights of Columbus will join us on Thanksgiving morning as we take part in the pilgrimage to the Icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Silver Rose. The Silver Rose program has been discussed in the “Knights Corner” of our parish bulletin.

         On behalf of Fr. Kumar, Deacon Rob and the Parish Staff, we prayerfully wish you a blessed Thanksgiving!

Monsignor Martin P. Ryan, D. Min.
