Greetings from Fr. George
One of the reasons I love being Catholic is that it allows me to be religious and not just spiritual. The Catholic...
The mission of this parish is to be a community of disciples of Jesus Christ. It accomplishes this mission in four ways. First, our parish participates in the perfect sacrifice of Christ through worship, the sacraments, and spiritual formation. Second, we follow the mandate of Jesus to “go and baptize all nations in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” by catechesis and evangelization to all our parishioners by supporting parents in forming their children in the faith, providing ongoing faith formation for adults, and sharing our friendship with Jesus with those who no longer fully participate in the life of the Church or are not Catholics. Third, we seek to continue the mission of Jesus to reach out to the sick, the poor, and those in the margins of society primarily by our care of the homebound, providing food to those who would not otherwise have access to healthy nourishment, providing access to social services, and good stewardship of our natural and financial resources. Fourth, our parish provides an environment that encourages Christian fellowship for all its members, including families, those with disabilities, and seniors.
On Good Friday (April 7th) at 12 PM, we will be having a prayerful reenactment of the Stations of the Cross. This event will be trilingual (English, Spanish, and French). We are looking for young people, approximately ages 16-30, to participate as actors, readers, and singers. No experience is necessary! We will have 2 practices from 11:30AM - 1PM in the Franciscan Community Center on 97th Street March 26 and April 2. All those who wish to participate need to be available from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm on Good Friday, April 7.
