Update on my Fasting, From Father Gannon
December 3, 2018
As most of you know I started a journey on the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows (Sept 15). It was a Fasting and Prayer journey.
It was, and still is, a powerful experience. Sure, I have fasted before, in Lent, on retreats, on Ash Wed. But never really like this.
I wanted to share a few things.
From Gilbert Rodriguez, our Youth Minister
When I was 13 years old, I was introduced to something that would change my life forever. People who were passionate of Christ (who I thought were crazy) invited me to my parish youth group. I didn’t know what to expect. But my curiosity got the best of me and there was no turning back.
Mission trip to Haiti
One of our Young Catholic Adults, Venessa Exil, has said yes to going on a Mission trip to Haiti in January. She is going to help the Friars and Sisters of the Renewal and Friar Suppliers (a Franciscan Order) to build medical buildings, and housing for the poor.
As part of the project, and as a way to support her yes, she needs to raise money that will be used by the Friar’s down in Haiti to buy material for the project.
Feast of Our Lady of Palestine
By Anthony and Denise Das
Last Sunday, October 28, 2018 we celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Palestine, the Patroness of the Holy Land and the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. As members of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem- Eastern Lieutenancy of the United States we were blessed by our Pastor and also a member of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem- Eastern Lieutenancy of the United States, Rev. Fr. Josephjude Gannon, after the mass we served.
November is the month to pray for the intercession of the Saints
Note from Fr Gannon - 10/20/18
As some of you may remember, I have been fasting since the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows (Sept 15) and I plan to keep going until Christ the King.
But I am not just giving up stuff and on a strict diet.
