A "Peak" Experience

02-25-2018Pastor's LetterFr. George V. Wanser, S.J.

On this second Sunday of Lent, the Transfiguration gives us a peek at God’s mighty power. If you will, a “peak” experience.

Peter, James, and John experienced Jesus in His glory. In the midst of Lent, we need this reminder that Jesus is not only fully human and tempted by the devil, but fully divine with all of His power and glory intact.


40 Days of Self Reflection

02-18-2018Pastor's LetterFr. George V. Wanser, S.J.

Today marks the First Sunday of Lent. Lent is an old English word meaning spring. Spring is a time for pruning superfluous branches so that the remaining ones bear abundant fruit.

Lent is also a time for prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. How do we slow down enough to make time for Jesus? In some Jewish homes, the family has decided to have a "Tech Shabbas." From sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, the entire family refrains from using all technical equipment. People have reported a renewed sense of peace and unity in their families.


Diocesan Charity and Development Appeal-CDA

02-11-2018Pastor's LetterFr. George V. Wanser, S.J.

This weekend mark’s the official kick-off of our Diocesan Charity and Development Appeal, CDA. Today’s Gospel reminds us of the awesome healing power of Jesus. Wouldn’t it be great to have that same healing power? We may not be able to physically touch someone as Jesus did and witness instant healing; but we do have the power to help change lives.

Dear Parishioners,

Warmest greetings to each of you. One week ago we marked a special moment in time for us as a parish community, and for me, as your new Pastor. We’ve included(in the bulletin) a few memorable images from the Installation Mass, and will be posting more pictures in the coming weeks on our parish website.
