Summer 2024

My Dear Friends,

Thank you for the incredible welcome you gave to Father David last weekend. I know he felt the love of this community: the love that you always show to all our priests. The joy of the priesthood is contagious because we share the Word of God and the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist. We are undeserved ministers who are simply here to share this Jesus with all of you particularly at Mass. 

During this summer to continue our formation during this National Eucharistic Revival, we will be publishing excerpts from Pope St. John Paul II’s Encyclical Letter “Ecclesia de Eucharistia.” We will publish two pages in English and two pages in Spanish every weekend during the summer month to give you plenty of heavenly material to meditate on and to better enhance your understanding of the Eucharist. I pray you find this reading fulfilling this summer, and I urge you to follow all the news that will be coming out of Indianapolis in a few weeks where thousands of Catholics will gather for the National Eucharistic Congress. It should be an amazing encounter. We are indeed a Eucharistic people, and as a parish, we draw all our strength from the altar of the Lord to go and minister in his name and share his presence with the world. I invite you to dive deeper into the meaning of the Eucharist by reading this encyclical letter this summer.

God bless you all,
