A Message from Father Nathan
My dearest people who are all close to my heart!
The Beginning of the Lenten Season | A time of Renewal
We have just started the Lenten season. It’s one of the most precious and holiest seasons of the year.
Let us try to know Christ and let us try to understand him. Please, make an effort to talk to Him and with Him through the readings of the scripture, praying the rosary as a family, and above all, a little more personal prayer time. I believe these are the ways and means we can relish this time of the year.
Archbishop’s Charity Drive – ABCD Update
I would like to bring to our attention the status of the Archbishop’s Charity Drive – ABCD. I do understand the world’s economic situation. There are very many who have lost their job/and or their economic situation has changed. We have no clue what the future holds for us in this situation. Trusting our generosity, our diocese has set a goal for us. I feel that we can meet it and do better. We are just a little over 50%. We have a long way to go. So may I request of you, prayerfully to consider, the appeal as well.
Even though as the shepherd of the parish, I don’t want to talk to you about money, but I am doing it, because, by our generous hearts, very many, who are in real need will benefit from it. So…..Thank you!
Stations of the Cross
Please may I request you also attend the Stations of the Cross on Fridays at 7:00 p.m? It’s one of the best ways, we can walk along with Christ to Calvary and we can very well understand the suffering of Jesus for our lives.
For Palm Sunday, we will have a small procession holding the palms as we go inside the church, which is a tradition of the church. We shall bless the palms, on the grass area of the entrance of the church. Then, let us go inside the church commemorating as Jesus was welcomed by his people. We will disseminate more information later.
Many have already been vaccinated.
God bless you all. I am extremely delighted to know that many have had their vaccines. Praise God! I am looking forward, to my day.
Many Many Thanks.
I would also like to thank personally, so many of you offering so many Masses for the repose of my brother Roy Nathan. God bless your heart. Please continue to pray for his soul, and for my family
May God bless you all!
Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,
With love and blessings,
—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

Mass is God’s Food for Our Soul, come and partake. I am glad and delighted to witness many coming back to the church in person, which is great! I am looking forward to witnessing all our people back at the church. I thought maybe it would be good to do a little catechism as my thankfulness.
A second collection for the Parish Projects will be the last weekend of July. Some of you were proposing to me to have a second collection for the Parish Project that we are undertaking.

Overturning an unjust law “For nearly fifty years,” says the US Bishops’ statement, “America has enforced an unjust law that has permitted some to decide whether others can live or die; this policy has resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of preborn children, generations that were denied the right to even be born.”
