As I Walk This Way”

Dear Parishioners,

I wish to congratulate the members of our two parishes who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Wednesday, April 7. Fr. Martuscello and I are so proud of our newly   confirmed! In a recent conversation with Bishop Matano, he said that it was an honor to confer this sacrament on our  parishioners. They have completed their time of formation and our two parishes rejoice with them and their families as they have received the gifts of the Spirit!

At Holy Cross you will notice that the cover for the baptismal font has been restored. It was found in the basement of the Church and depicts St. John baptizing Our Lord. This is a beautiful reminder of the humility of Our Lord. Through our baptism we are called to humbly serve the Lord Jesus Christ.

At Our Mother of Sorrows you will notice the decoration of Our Lady’s Grotto. The Buildings and Grounds team has done an amazing job of cleaning up and decorating this space of prayer.

This weekend, April 17/18, I am grateful for the assistance of Fr. Paul Tomasso and Fr. Phil Brockmyre who will celebrate the Masses at Holy Cross. Thank you for extending to them a warm welcome.

Happy Easter to all!

In Christ,
