Dear Friends,

“Above all, let your love for one another be intense.” During this unique year of 2020, those words from the First Letter of St. Peter present a powerful challenge. As we deal with divisions in our nation the like of which we have never experienced, and as we reel from the impact of a pandemic that has killed more than 200,000 in this country and that continues to hinder our ability to come together in community, what better reminder could there be of what is most important—mutual love?

Our parish isn’t just a place we go on Sundays. During these challenging days, we’ve learned that we are a resilient family of faith, and in spite of distance and separation, we continue to find a home together: where we are nourished, comforted, and challenged; where we are surrounded and supported by a wonderfully diverse community.

Sacrificial Giving is all about our support of this parish family. It’s about giving back to God what God has given to us. Through our gift to the parish, we reach out—together—in the name of Christ to the poor, the elderly, and the immigrant. We celebrate in a powerful way the mysteries of our faith; and we provide a refuge to so many who live on the edge of loneliness in these trying times.

During this year when so many have lost life and so many have lost livelihood, I find myself more grateful than ever before for the gift this parish is to me—the gift YOU are to me! Your support throughout these past months is an inspiration. Thank you for your prayerful response and for all the ways you make this parish family what it is.

Father Michael G. Ryan
