• From the Pastor's Desk
      Dear Parishioners:
       
      This week's message is one of special thanks to all who regularly assist the needy of our area through their donations to our parish St. Vincent DePaul Conference. At St. Anthony Church we have permanent poor boxes at each door, while at Our Lady of Sorrows Church we place our gifts in the now familiar green baskets on the fourth Sunday of the month. I am truly grateful for your generosity. Your support is making a difference in the lives of so many people. The appeals to our parish for some financial assistance have increased significantly over the past two years. This makes your gift so much more appreciated. The funds we receive remain with us to help the needy within our own parish territory, whether Catholic or non-Catholic.
      Do not grieve or complain
      that you were born in a time
      when you can no longer see God in the flesh.
      He did not in fact take this privilege from you.
      As he says,
      "Whatever you have done to the least of my brothers,
      you did to me."
                                                             ~St. Augustine of Hippo
       
      With affection,
      Msgr. Gervasio

        Priesthood Sunday, October 26, is a day especially chosen to celebrate the sacrament of Holy Orders—the sacrament of priestly dedication. This Sunday we acknowledge and honor the priests of our parish. Msgr. Tom, Fr. Carter, and Fr. Jean serve us with holy guidance, patient teaching, and gentle spiritual encouragement. They deliver an opportunity for us to grow closer to God as they serve "in the Person of Christ." Their vocation calls them to serve as pastoral counselors for our spiritual journey. Now let us offer prayer and heartfelt thanks for their sacrifice and commitment.
