August 23, 2015 – From The Desk of The Pastor

The intentions of Pope Francis for the month of August:

  • Universal: That volunteers may give themselves generously to the service of the needy.
  • For Evangelization: That by setting aside our very selves, we may learn to be neighbors to those who find themselves on the margins of human life and society.

Rev. Fr. Marty JacintoDear Parishioners of OLM & OLS:

God is good all the time!

Summer break is coming to a close. Pretty soon students will be going back to school and everybody will be busy again. May we all have a good beginning of the school year. And before I get busier, too, allow me to say “Thank You” to all those who are involved in the work of preparation for our two communities’ Jubilee Year closing event.

However the planning turns out, my most heartfelt THANKS for your hard work! Let us do the best we can to make this event a holy and unforgettable celebration.

Also, I want to welcome and thank the Adorno Fathers missionary this weekend at Our Lady of Mercy church. Let us try to be generous supporters to this very good cause. God always pours out His manifold blessings upon those with generous hearts.

And I guess, it’s as good a time as any to encourage you, dear Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mercy parishioners, to re-think and reconsider how are you doing with your Stewardship of Treasure in our communities. Try to give more and you will see how blessed you will be by our Good Lord in return.

Thank you and God bless us all!

God bless us all!

Love and Prayers,

Father Marty
