“Paving the Way with Love”
Our current project “Paving the Way with Love” is to replace our old parking lot with new, fresh and dark asphalt. It is thanks to your support, parishioners, school families and benefactors, that this parking lot project is actually now taking place. It is our shared hope that this new pavement will provide a safer play area for our children and a steadier walkway for all. As this project is a community effort, we are each called to be flexible as this project moves through the various phases of progress. We will finish all in the end of February.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The central theme of today’s readings is God’s calling to a person, and the positive response to this call which leads the person to discipleship. As in our own lives, that call has three steps: 1) the revelation of God himself or of Jesus’ identity as the One sent from God; 2) the recognition and confession of one’s unworthiness and inadequacy to receive this call; and 3) the word of reassurance from God, or Jesus, and a call to share in his life giving mission. Today’s readings tell us that God has His own criteria for selecting people to be prophets and ministers. Presenting the special calls, or vocations, of Isaiah, Paul and Peter as life-changing events, the readings challenge us to examine our own personal call to conversion and discipleship. In reflecting on today’s readings, we pray that our encounters with the holiness of God may lead us to recognize our sinfulness. God, who calls us and commissions us for His service, wants us to realize His presence everywhere and in everyone, to repent of our own sins, and to remain in readiness to speak and act for Him in our own life circumstances as He shall direct. May we teach and practice expressions of reverence for the Lord. May we express our reverence for God through appropriate gestures, such as coming into the Church we show reverence for Jesus’ presence in the Tabernacle by making a deep bow or genuflection, bless ourselves with sign of the cross with the Holy Water, maintain 15 minutes of silence before each Mass, and purchase devotional candles from the front desk office and light them at the Church’s alcoves with the intentions to pray for oneself and others.
