WELCOME FROM THE PASTOR

Welcome to our Family of Parishes.  St. Ann, St. Bernard, St. James and St. Margaret Mary have been called together for worship and service.  Each parish is unique.  Each parish has its own special gifts and identity.  I treasure them all and I hope that you will too.  I am the pastor of the four parishes.  I serve together with Fr. Bryan Reif, Fr. Rey Taylor, and Fr. Roberto Reyes.  We also have Fr. Rob Jack for Sunday help.  I have been pastor since July 1, 2022.  I am still very much learning my way.  The people of the parishes have been wonderful.  They are welcoming and understanding.  I am truly blessed, and we are blessed to be together.  I look forward to getting to know you.

FOCUS ON THIS WEEK'S READINGS from the PASTOR

Sanctity of Human Life: John Paul II spoke often of a Culture of Death that had infected the world, not just the United States, but the world. He proclaimed the need to recommit ourselves to a Culture of Life. This is not just a matter of supporting prolife causes. It is a whole attitude of viewing human life as sacred. It is minimalistic to think of this only in terms of issues that bring an immediate end to life. Every breath we take, every thing we do, must be consistent with the sacredness of our individual lives and the life of the whole as Body of Christ.

Readings for next week: Isaiah 58:7-10; 1 Corinthians 2:1-5; Matthew 5:13-16

Reflection: Light adds, only indirectly, to the thing it illuminates. The tables and chairs that fill our rooms remain present whether there is light or not. Light simply allows us to see the opportunities and obstacles which the tables and chairs present. We are the light of the world. The love of God, when we allow it to shine through us, illumines the hearts and needs of those around us. We are able to cherish the gifts that another can put to God’s service. We are able to see and act upon another’s needs with compassion. Salt preserves what is good. It adds vigor and excitement to what we do. If the fire of God’s love is to remain burning bright within us, then we ourselves must be constantly refreshed. WE must live in the joy of God’s love and life if we are to joyfully share in His service.

1. Describe a personal success which could not have happened without another person’s help.

2. Seek opportunities to brighten someone’s day.

Prayer: Lord, you are our only light. You lead us through our struggles and confirm us in our successes. You look upon us with compassion, and give us the warmth to look upon each other in the same way. Your warmth allows us to flower in goodness. Lord, may your love always burn bright as a source of guidance for ourselves and for those around us.
