Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

He is Risen!  Alleluia!!!!  We continue to celebrate the feast of our redemption and the promise of salvation fulfilled!  Today we celebrate the Octave Day of Easter, known to us as Divine Mercy Sunday.  St. Faustina was given the privilege of speaking with Jesus and He inspired her to proclaim the mercy of God to all people and to create the image of Divine Mercy, on which we find the words “Jesus, I Trust in You!”  Pope St. John Paul II ensured that the world heard the message given to St. Faustina and proclaimed the Second Sunday of Easter to be Divine Mercy Sunday throughout the world, fulfilling the desire of Jesus as relayed to St. Faustina. Many have read her diary and are encouraged by the message of mercy.  As Christian people, that is what we are called to believe.  That God is all merciful.  He will forgive any sin if asked.  As we continue our Easter journey, let us proclaim loudly to the world that Jesus is Risen!

This is my last message to you as your pastor.  It has been the privilege of my life to serve you first as a newly ordained priest and now as your pastor for the last six years.  I cannot thank you enough for the prayers and assistance of so many of you during my time here.  You have given me great joy!  I hope that in return I have served you well.  I trusted in the guidance of the Holy Spirit to bring you the Good News of Jesus.  While in my human frailty I have failed at times, I trust that God has filled in for my failings.  I assure you that I gave you my all!  This transition takes place during the Easter season and how fitting!  A new day dawned with the Resurrection of Jesus and a new day dawns in our lives!  Please be assured of my continued daily prayers for you.  I will pray that a new holy pastor be assigned to St. Christopher soon!  ‘Jesus, I Trust in You!’  How appropriate for this day!!!

He is Risen!!!  Alleluia!!!  HAPPY EASTER!

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!!  Alleluia!!

Parish Transition Prayer

God, giver of every good gift, look graciously on St. Christopher Roman Catholic Church and guide us during our time of transition. We pray we will be saying “Welcome” to a new Pastor soon and ask that you bless our parish with a Priest whose presence will be a grace both for him and for us. We are filled with faith, energized by the power of your love and united in the mission entrusted to us. We need your grace to be receptive to this change and view it as an invitation to conversion and growth.  We pray this in the name of your Son and Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen
