The Mass is part of the 2-year “Share the Journey” campaign, launched by Pope Francis on September 27, 2017, to support those who have left, or have been displaced from, their home countries.

All are invited to share the richness of their culture by wearing the clothes of their native culture or ethnicity.

Pray with St. John Paul II

Bulletin Message from Rome

Dear Taylor,

It is wonderful to hear from you (and of course I remember you). I am greatly pleased that you and the Youth Leadership Team (YLT) have been formed, and that you took the time to write me a letter.

Although I cannot remember who said it, these words keep repeating: you, and others like you, are not the future of the Church; rather, you are the present.

This is true and I hope that it lends some strength to your ministry in our home community.

It sounds like you all have made a great start with the activities you have organized, and I encourage you to continue to use your creativity to find more ways to bolster the faith of the Parish and establish greater unity among its members.

Concerning your request for a letter from Pope Francis, I will look into this possibility. I am unaware of how to do so, but I will keep you updated on my progress. I have seen our Holy Father from a distance, and I have heard him speak at his Sunday Angelus Address. Some themes he often speaks on are: being joyful, welcoming & reaching out to others who may be/feel alone, and to pray!

Thank you again for your letter, and I will see what I can do about that letter.

Know of my prayers for you members of YLT and for Guardian Angels Parish.

 

Peace, 

 

Clayton Forner
