Greetings and prayers to all of you.  Thank you everyone for all your support towards the parish in every way possible. We are getting back to some kind of normality slowly and yet we must take every effort to stay safe from the infection. The parish will reopen the catechism classes soon and the parents are welcome to register your children for catechism when the date is out. We are facing technological issues this weekend and so we are unsure if we will be able to livestream the mass on Facebook or to upload the mass on to YouTube tomorrow. If everything goes well we will livestream the mass and if not please have your other options.  All of you are in my prayers and keep me in your prayers too. God Bless.


Thank you.                                                                                                     


Fr. Christu.

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and I unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. (Saint Alphonsus Liguori)
