Dear Friends:

Welcome to the Easter Season! Jesus is Risen! Alleluia!

I want to share 1 HUGE thank you and share 2 FYI’s with you this week.

All of those who celebrated the sacraments – all of the RCIA adults and newly Confirmed young people;

Sister Sharon, Peggy Stewart and Anni Fassel who worked with them through the year;
Deacon Richard and Sheila Vieria for their help with the liturgy and the reception;
Patty Doane and the Choir for their enhancement of the liturgy with music ministry;
Isabella Lind and Joe Davis for serving at the altar;
Brother Brandon for praying the Exultet for us, and for helping with altar service;
Dave Havermann for assistance with the Easter Fire;
All the lectors and Eucharistic Ministers who helped with their ministries;
Anna Velasquez and Mary Ellen Iten for their sacristan assistance.

THANK YOU!

FYI # 1

Next weekend – May 4 and 5 ARCHBISHOP’S CATHOLIC APPEAL - I invite all of the members of the parish to participate in this annual financial support effort for the Archdiocese.
MESSAGE FROM THE ARCHBISHOP:

I ask all members of this parish to recommit to this year’s Appeal. If you didn’t participate in last year’s program, please join your parishioners in their conviction that our united sacrifices will produce abundant fruit in the lives of others…I encourage you to visualize the people whom your gift will benefit: the hungry and homeless, the unborn, our seminarians, our school children, our teenagers, our college students, our young couples and our senior citizens.
Archbishop Samuel Aquila

FYI # 2

A THANK YOU SOCIAL for Brother Brandon as he completes his internship with us at Holy Family, will be held on SUNDAY, MAY 5, after all the Masses in the Parish Hall. This is an opportunity to thank Brother for his service to Holy Family and to wish him well as he returns to school to complete his preparation for ordination to the deaconate and priesthood. All are invited!

Happy Easter Season!
Fr. Marty Lally

Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time November 17/18, 2018

“In those days after the tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the ‘Son of Man coming in the clouds’ with great power and glory, and then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky.”
Mark 13: 24-32

Charity is the measure by which our Lord judges all things.

Twenty– Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - September 22/23, 2018

Saint James the Apostle

“Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist” there is the temptation too “beset the just one” with “revilement and torture.”  This is what Jesus reveals to his disciples: he is to be “handed over to men and they will kill him.” The disciples’ swaggering response is to squabble among themselves about “who was the greatest.”  “Where do the conflicts among you come from?” From “your passions that make war within,” spurring us to “kill and envy.” Yet, for all our coveting, we do not possess. So Jesus puts his arms around a child.  In order to receive this little one we must be pure, peaceable, gentle, full of mercy - so much better than fighting and waging war. We “have proof of his gentleness” in the desire to be gentle that Jesus generates in us.

Paul Miki, Feast Day - February 6

Three and a half centuries ago, 26 martyrs of Japan were crucified on a hill, overlooking Nagasaki. Among them were priests, brothers, and laymen, Franciscans, Jesuits, and members of the Secular Franciscan Order; there were catechists, doctors, simple artisans, and servants, old men and innocent children—all united in a common faith and love for Jesus and his Church.

Brother Paul Miki, a Jesuit and a native of Japan, has become the best known among the martyrs of Japan. While hanging upon a cross, Paul Miki preached to the people gathered for the execution: “The sentence of judgment says these men came to Japan from the Philippines, but I did not come from any other country. I am a true Japanese. The only reason for my being killed is that I have taught the doctrine of Christ. I certainly did teach the doctrine of Christ. I thank God it is for this reason I die. I believe that I am telling only the truth before I die. I know you believe me and I want to say to you: Ask Christ to help you to become happy. After Christ’s example I forgive my persecutors. I do not hate them. I ask God to have pity on all, and I hope my blood will fall on my fellow men as a fruitful rain.”

St. John of Capistrano - Feast Day October 23rd
