Your tremendous support throughout this pandemic has strengthened the bonds that unite your parish and our whole Diocese. This commandment of love can be manifested through your giving to the Annual Minsitry Appeal, where your donations fund and make possible the many ministries that our diocese carries out to help those most in need. Thank you for prayerfully considering a gift to the 2022 AMA.
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverand Daniel E. Garcia

What is the Synod and the Consultation ?
Pope Francis is inviting all the world’s Catholics to participate in a consultation about how we experience “journeying together” as Church and where we feel the Spirit may be leading us, as Church, into the future. The invitation is to listen to one another and our faith experiences.
This consultation will bring together all of us in a gathering the Church calls a “synod.” The theme for this process: A Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission, concluding 2023.
The Catholic Church is facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities all over the world. Many have stopped practicing their faith. Divisions are experienced everywhere. The pandemic has had a negative impact. In this crucial moment, the Church is forging a pathway to profound renewal. The Church is holding a consultation to encounter one another, listen to each other’s experiences, and seek to discover what God is calling the Church to do in these times. The hope is to strengthen all aspects of our Church on every level and revitalize our mission in the world. Click here to find out more....

St. Padre Pio Powerful Healing Prayer
Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me.
I thank you for sending your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ,
to the world to save and to set me free.
trust in your power and grace that sustain and restore me.
Loving Father, touch me now with your healing hands,
for I believe that your will is for me to be well in mind, body, soul and spirit.
Cover me with the most precious blood of your Son,
our Lord, Jesus Christ from the top of my head to the soles of my feet.
Cast anything that should not be in me.
Root out any unhealthy and abnormal cells.
Open any blocked arteries or veins and rebuild and replenish any damaged areas.
Remove all inflammation and cleanse any infection by the power of Jesus’ precious blood. Let the fire of your healing love pass through my entire body to heal and make new any diseased areas so that my body will function the way you created it to function.
Touch also my mind and my emotion, even the deepest recesses of my heart.
Saturate my entire being with your presence, love, joy and peace and draw me ever closer to you every moment of my life. And Father, fill me with your Holy Spirit and empower me to do your works so that my life will bring glory and honor to your holy name. I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
