July 2014 Holydays and schedule

    Important messages from Father John:

    Beloved Parishioners and Friends: Do you know that many working people cheer when Friday comes, because they look forward to two days off. Do you know that holy Christians cheer on Friday, because in two days they will be in God's House worshiping the Living God, and receiving their blessings. Meditation for the Day. You should not dwell too much on the MISTAKES, FAULTS, AND FAILURES OF THE PAST. Be done with shame and remorse and contempt for yourself. With God's help, develop a new self-RESPECT. Unless you RESPECT yourself, others will NOT respect you. You ran a race, you stumbled and fell, you have risen again, and now you press on toward the goal of a better life. Do NOT stay to examine the spot where you fell, only feel sorry for the delay, that prevented you from seeing the real goal sooner.

    Prayer for the Day: I pray that I may not look back. I pray that I may keep picking myself up and making a FRESH start each day. Amen. See you Sunday, keep cheering for Sunday. Love Always, Fr. John

    A reminder to all parents: Bring your children to Liturgy during the summer, it is the will of God, and duty of parents. God really loves families who worship together.

  • SYMPATHY is expressed to Greg Kushner and the whole family, on the recent falling asleep of wife, mother, grandmother, +Martha Kushner.
