Reflection for Sunday December 4, 2022

2nd Sunday of Advent

“Therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” Matthew 3:10

Do you bear good fruit for Jesus? Do you spend time in prayer or do you waste it with mindless activity? Do you use your talent to help others or are you too busy? Do you use your treasure to support the Church or do you buy more things that go unused. Our time, talent and treasure are gifts from God. What we do with these gifts is our gift back to Him. What gifts are you planning to give to the Lord during this upcoming Christmas season?

3rd Sunday of Advent

“You too must be patient. Make you hearts firm, because the coming of the Lord is at hand.” JAMES 5:8

Patience is another one of those things many of us struggle with. We want things to go according to our plan and our schedule; we like things to be convenient. Any change brings anxiety and fear. Through daily prayer God reveals to us what He wants us to do with the gifts He has given us. We are able to better align ourselves with God’s will and His plan, which is far better than anything we can come up with on our own.

Parish Building Closure – Update

We have officially started our “Raise the Roof” fundraising campaign. Please click the following link for more information. It is our hope to have our parish family worshiping in our church building within the next few months. However, this can only happen with your generous support.

Saturday, September 24th, the diocese directed us to close the entire church building to the public immediately. David Meier, the Director of the diocesan Office for Building Constructions, and some engineers came to inspect the reported cracks on at least 2 structural beams on the eastern side of our ceiling. Aside from the visible cracks on these beams, they suspect that there might be more compromised beams and that even a mild earthquake can cause the beams to collapse which may cause loss of lives and further destruction of property. Thus, the urgent direction in prohibiting the use of the church for any worship services.

Having the parishioners’ safety in mind, we are following the directive of the diocese. The church building will remain closed until the diocese declares it is safe to reopen. Due to the closure, we will have the weekend masses at the Parish Hall and the weekday masses at the Sacred Heart Center. Necessary adjustments for the scheduled use of the Center will be made giving priority to weekday masses. I am presupposing that the Parish Hall will be available for the weekend masses.
