A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are all close to my heart! Prayers and blessings to you.

The Mysteries of our Faith.

As the Lenten Season has started please make all the efforts possible to participate in the liturgy and other pious activities of the church. These are the ways and means we are able to understand the mystery of Christ. The suffering, the cross, and the death of Christ are all the mysteries of our faith.

We cannot comprehend this with our reasoning, but we are called to take it and relish it with our faith.

Every Sunday the church beautifully leads us to celebrate this mystery of our faith. Let us be faithful to this. It’s one of the beautiful events that the Holy Mother Church offers us to celebrate each and every year. Let us make good use of it.

Archbishop Charity Drive – The ABCD Update

I wanted to remind you again about OUR Archbishop Charity Drive, the ABCD time at hand. We need to do better. We are not doing our best right now. I do understand the situation in which we live in. It’s an extremely difficult time and everyone in the world suffers from this.

Amidst this situation let us remember we are all blessed with so much! Let us share our blessings with the least fortunate.

Please, may I request you to prayerfully consider and support it?

Prayer + Acts of charity

Let us remember and pray for each other. Let us try to do many acts of charity and gain the grace of God. Please spare time for your family’s prayers. It’s one of the best ways we can connect ourselves to God. God bless you all.

Please continue to pray for me and for the spiritual growth of the parish. And continue to ask God to bless you.

Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,

With love and blessings,

 

—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

What is the Sacrament of Confession? Why do we need confession? What are the benefits of going to confession? The Sacrament of Confession is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholicism. Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established the Sacrament of Confession so that we as sinners can obtain forgiveness for our sins and reconcile with God, our neighbors, and the Church.
