Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
I hope you are all doing well and getting closer to God in this time of great silence. God gives us an opportunity, especially during this Easter season when we celebrate Christ’s triumph over death, to be closer to God and to one another. He is our hope that unites us to God the Father and to each other. Our parish staff has put together these resources to help our parish community stay connected, pray, and serve each other. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need anything, and please share this information with others. Sincerely, Fr. Eduino Silveira, Pastor
