A Message from Father Nathan
My dearest people who are all close to my heart
Lots of love, blessings, and prayers to you all.
The Solemnity of St. Joseph
Today is the Solemnity of St. Joseph. This is the primary and highest feast of St. Joseph and is celebrated annually on March 19th. Because this feast is a solemnity, even though it falls during Lent, the faithful are dispensed of their Lenten obligations on this day. Since the 10th century, several Western countries celebrated March 19th as the Feast of St. Joseph, with the feast day becoming the official practice of the Church in the 1500s.
Who Was St Joseph?
Everything we know about the husband of Mary and the foster father of Jesus comes from scripture and that has seemed too little for those who made up legends about him. Despite his humble work and means, Joseph came from a royal lineage. Luke and Matthew disagree about some of the details of Joseph’s genealogy, but they both mark his descent from David, the greatest king of Israel (Matthew 1:1-16 and Luke 3:23-38). Indeed, the angel who first told Joseph about Jesus greets him as “son of David” a royal title also used for Jesus.
As I informed you LAST WEEK – morning confessions will be held on Wednesday, March 29th, and Thursday, March 30th immediately after 8:00 a.m. Mass until 10:30 a.m.
Afternoon confession will be held Friday, March 31st, immediately after the 4:00 p.m. Stations of the Cross until 6:00 p.m.
I am giving you options for your convenience to come for confession, please come. It’s a time of GRACE AND HEALING – as we prepare ourselves to be worthy for the pascal festivities.
THERE WILL NOT BE CONFESSIONS DURING HOLY WEEK
God bless you all.
With lots of love and blessing.
Ever wanting to be faithful to your service.
—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

Understand The Lent discipline of Fasting… All Catholics are called to fast for at least two important dates. One is Ash Wednesday and the other is Good Friday. Fasting, prayer, and helping the poor are the three spiritual disciplines of Lent.

When we think of Lent, for any Catholic, there are three things that should come to our mind. These three main things are prayer, fasting, and giving.
