A Message from our Pastor

Pope Francis challenged the People of God with two questions.  First he asked, “What have you done today to make the church holy and then what have you done today to make the church welcoming?”

Since the beginning, the Church has understood that the Gospel of Christ is not just about God, it is also about us.  It guides us to a life that is faith-filled, but also service-orientated.  We are a we” and those in need are part of that “we” whether we know them or not.

Christ gave us His Church, the poor, the hungry, the lonely and the naked as special gifts to be nurtured, loved and protected.  These “poor of God” are meant to inspire us to reach into our hearts and use our skills so that we may help them find God and recover their human dignity.

In service we make the Church holy by being holy ourselves.  One human heart reaching to another in Christ’s name is holiness of a great order.  In service, we make the church welcoming for how can we feed the poor without reaching out our hand? How can we say we come in the name of Jesus and not pay attention to them?  In service we can teach our young and show them what it means to be a Christian in deeds not just in words.

We invite you to answer our Holy Father’s Call to be holy and welcoming by giving of your talents and your precious time to be ambassadors of Christ.  We can all do something. What will you do?

Father Edmond Derosier
