from Fr. Carlos A. Gomez-Rivera on August 1, 2014

Hermanos en Cristo;

El verano está a punto de terminar…..me refiero al tiempo vacacional de los hijos. Que importante es que cada uno de nosotros sigamos atentos a las MOCIONES del Espíritu Santo.    Es precisamente éste mismo ESPIRITU quien nos va llevando a la verdad y a la paz.  

En medio de tanta inestabilidad mundial, tantos conflictos entre naciones y pueblos nuestra UNICA Esperanza es Jesucristo.  La Crisis Humanitaria de todos estos niños pasando la frontera es realmente triste.  Ellos están desprotegidos, rechazados y a veces desamparados.  ¿Qué podemos hacer nosotros? ORAR, orar mucho por ellos y sus padres.  Todos ellos sufren y nosotros somos bendecidos de NO estar sufriendo en ese aspecto.  Si podemos apoyar económicamente a las Caridades Católicas para proveer más representación legal para los niños. Hágalo, nuestra contribución será algo muy bueno y agradable a DIOS.   Ud, puede convertirse en una familia adoptiva o sea un voluntario en el Programa de Menores no Acompañados….esos niños son Cristo Sufriente.  En nuestra parroquia veremos información de cómo ser HERMANOS unos con otros en esta situación tan triste.
Miremos a Cristo en todo esto y démosle la mano.

María nuestra Madre del Cielo nos lleva de la mano para que juntos podamos llegar a mas persona que necesitan de DIOS. 
Ustedes son parte de esta misión…..caminemos juntos !!!

Su párroco,   Padre Carlos

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ;

Summer is almost ending….I am talking about our children going back to school very soon.  It is very important that we continue being OPEN to the motions of the Holy Spirit.  This same Holy Spirit is the one guiding us to the Truth and Peace. 

In the mist of this insecure world, among conflicts between nations our ONLY Hope is Jesus Christ. The recent Humanitarian Crisis with the amount of immigrant children entering into our country is really sad.   They are unprotected, and many times neglected and rejected.  What can we do?  PRAY, pray a lot for these children and their parents.  All of them are suffering, we are so blessed because we are not facing this pain.  If you can donate money to allow Catholic Charities to provide more legal representation for these children do it to our Catholic Charities in our Diocese.  God will recompense your efforts.  If you cannot support with money, you can become a foster parent or volunteer in the Unaccompanied Minor Program…open your home to one of them.  Remember: these little ones represent Christ Suffering.  In our parish we will find some important information of how to be BROTHERS and SISTERS in this difficult situation.  Let us see Christ in this and let us give Him a hand.    

Mary our Heavenly Mother, will leads us by her hand so together we can reach out to those who are in need of God.
You are part of this mission……let us walk together !!!

Your parish priest;  Padre Carlos

ALPHA Classes begin the week of Sep 21

Sep 21, 2014

A major goal of ALPHA is to form, or deepen an existing relationship with Jesus. ALPHA helps accomplish this by providing each participant the opportunity to learn about HIM in a small group setting, and experience the power of HIS love through sharing and a powerful retreat midway through the classes.

Another major goal of ALPHA is Evangelization – to announce to our Catholic Christians in the church pews the power of the Holy Spirit received at Baptism – and the ability they have to use God's power to change lives and the world. ALPHA helps peo- ple, if they want, become involved in parish life.

YOU DO NOT have to be Catholic to attend. Must be 18 years old and be able to communicate in English

ALPHA is for:
Non-Christians - those who don't go to church regularly
New Christians – those wanting to brush up on the basic
Strengthening your faith – those who are new to the church those who need a fresh encounter with God – those who need healing in the family

  • We will meet for 2 hours, once a week, to explore different Catholic topics.
  • We will watch a video, share dessert/snack, and have a discussion.
  • NO ONE is forced to share. The ALPHA course runs for 10 weeks.
  • The retreat takes place in the middle of the nine course sessions.

40 Days for Life Fall Campaign

Sep 24, 2014 to Nov 2, 2014

40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:

  • Prayer and fasting
  • Constant vigil
  • Community outreach

The 40-day campaign tracks Biblical history, where God used 40day periods to transform individuals, communities … and the entire world. From Noah in the flood to Moses on the mountain to the disciples after Christ's resurrection, it is clear that God sees the transformative value of His people accepting and meeting a 40-day challenge.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign with a vision to access God's power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion.

This campaign will be from Wed, Sep 24 to Sun,, Nov 2. We invite all families to participate by doing any or all the three options above. You may call the office with any questions at 623-849-3131. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO DEFEND LIFE!

40 Días por la Vida es una campaña pro-vida basada en mostrar a las comunidades locales las consecuencias del aborto en sus propia comunidad, por sus propios amigos y familias. Se pone en acción el deseo de cooperar con Dios en la realización de Su plan para el fin del aborto. Se llama la atención sobre el mal del aborto mediante el uso de un programa de tres puntos:

  • La oración y el ayuno
  • Vigilia constante frente a las clínicas de aborto
  • Promoción a la comunidad

La campaña de 40 días de seguimiento de la historia bíblica, donde Dios usa períodos de 40 días para transformar personas, comunidades...y el mundo entero. Desde Noé en el diluvio a Moisés en el monte a los discípulos después de la resurrección de Cristo, está claro que Dios ve el valor transformador de su pueblo que aceptan y que cumplan un reto de 40 días.

40 Días por la Vida es una campaña enfocada pro-vida con una visión para acceder al poder de Dios mediante la oración, el ayuno y la vigilia pacífica para acabar con el aborto.

Esta campaña será del 24 de Septiembre al 2 de Noviembre. La parroquia te invita a participar haciendo una o todas las tres opciones mencionadas. Tu puedes llamar a la oficina con cualquier pregunta al 623-849-3131. ¡NO TENGAS MIEDO A DEFENDER LA VIDA!
