Here are two letters

Dear Parishioners,

Greetings again from Father Germain,

Many Parishioners have been asking how to support their parish in this moment of crisis and where they should bring their offertory envelop. I would like to inform you that there is a mailbox outside of the rectory, contribution or envelop collection can be dropped off in the mailbox. Thank you again for your generosity.

Estimados feligreses,

Saludos nuevamente del Padre Germain,

Muchos feligreses han estado preguntando cómo apoyar a su parroquia en este momento de crisis y dónde deberían llevar su envoltorio ofertorio. Me gustaría informarle que hay un buzón fuera de la rectoría, la colección de contribuciones o sobres puede dejarse en el buzón. Gracias otra vez por tu generosidad.

 

Chers paroissiens,

Salutations de nouveau du Père Germain,

Dear Parishioners,

Greetings from Father Germain, I hope this flock note finds you in good health. I would like to inform you all the priests are doing well so far. Please keep Deacon John and wife Jessica in your prayers. My dear friends, prayers work miracle, stay steadfast and diligent in your prayers, firm in good intentions.

I would like to express my gratitude on behalf of all the clergy for your continued support. Many of you have called and expressed your support, prayers and good will. Many of you have brought food and shared the generous portions of kindness and grace of the abundance God has showered on you. This is the Ethos that should drive us during this pandemic “Gratitude”. While the coronavirus is causing one pandemic, how about lent causing a pandemic of a different kind, one of gratitude and solidarity, action, faith and prayer. The Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the rectory chapel all the priests will make periodic visits until the end of this pandemic. Once again rest assured of our prayer for the protect of your family. May the precious blood of Christ cover you and your loved one during this time of great difficulty. We love you! We look to that day when we meet again as a family of faith. In as much that we are breathing there is hope. To live is to have hope, hope does not die.

God Bless you all!
