    Reflections, Announcements, News, Thoughts The Pastors RANT

    that touches off this special experience is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Traditionally the week of prayer is celebrated between 18-25 January, be-tween the feasts of St Peter and St Paul. Please join us once again as we pray and work for the commun-ion of all, joining our prayer to that of the Lord Je-sus Christ, "that all may be one" (John 17:21).

    FYI The Parish Office will be closed on Monday Jan-uary 16 in observance of the Martin Luther King,, Jr. Holiday. There will be ONE MASS ON-LY AT 9:00AM.

    PRAYERS & PATIENCE PLEASE I will be away for the next few weeks while having a surgical procedure and then time for recovery. It shouldnt be more than a few weeks. We ask for your patience and understanding in any issues with priest availability during this time. We are grateful to the priests who will be covering the masses and sacramental needs during Fr. Pats recovery.


    We are grateful to Bishop Chavez and all who par-ticipated and helped with last weeks celebration of the Black Nazarene Mass. May we all be blessed in our worship of Jesus under the title of the Black Nazarene.

    Have a blessed and holy week. In Christs love, Fr. Pat

    Respecting Human Life Recalling the Anniversary of

    Roe v. Wade 40+ years ago, the Supreme Court of the United States, in their Roe vs. Wade decision, legalized abortion in our country. The tragedy of this decision is the millions of lives lost over these several dec-ades, the women and men who have been devastated by a choice often made in crisis, and the diminished reverence for the sacredness of every human life. Please make a daily commitment to pray for conver-sion and repentance that we might build a culture of life. May we come to embrace and defend the dignity of every human life created in the image and likeness of God!

    Week of Prayer for Christian Unity January 18-25

    Reconciliation-The Love of Christ Compels Us. (cf. 2 Cor 5:14-20)

    At least once a year, Christians are reminded of Je-sus prayer for his disciples that they may be one so that the world may believe (see John 17.21). Hearts are touched and Christians come together to pray for their unity. Congregations and parishes all over the world exchange preachers or arrange special ecu-menical celebrations and prayer services. The event
