Prayer of St. Cyprian

Almighty God, we are reminded through your servant St. Cyprian, of your Spirit always within us and Your continued presence in us, and of our oneness with You and the Church. May we always grow together and profess You in Faith, Unity, and Hope. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we ask this through Christ our Lord

From the Pastor’s Desk

May Jesus Christ, who offers glad tidings to the poor, liberty to captives and freedom for the oppressed, be with you!

The month of January is quickly flying by. Each day we experience either the same routine or new discoveries and challenges. Whatever the day brings us, we ask for God’s blessing, guidance, wisdom, and protection.

We also hear the same news from the media around Covid-19 and its variants. Analysts are predicting that the omicron will level off or go away. We pray this will happen. However, we must remain vigilant, cautious, and safe. It is good to be wise rather than foolish. Keep your guard up, follow the guidelines of the C.D.C. and protect yourself from this virus. I am grateful to our parish staff who make sure our Church is sanitized and clean for Sunday worship. We continue to put everyone as a priority with regards to their safety and quality of life.

I also want to thank our parishioners who volunteer their time at our parish. Whether it’s the Food Pantry, Peanut Butter and Jelly ministries, Helping Hands for the Hungry, parish counters, Sunday Mass ministers, musicians, choir, or those who check on fellow parishioners. Without our parish volunteers, part of our parish would not be able to function properly. Everyone’s stewardship of time, talent, and treasure are very important. We must work together for the greater good of our parish family.

Today we celebrate the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time. We continue to hear about Jesus’ public ministry and how he is anointed to proclaim God’s message and to bring hope and consolation to our world. He reminds us of that transformative spiritual journey we all travel on. May we continue to travel on this spiritual and earthly journey knowing that Jesus travels along with us, giving us strength and encouragement.

Peace and Blessings

Msgr. Britto
