A Letter from Father Albert

Greetings in Christ,

In today’s Gospel Jesus tells the disciples “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!” The baptism of fire that Jesus anticipates is the immersion into his passion, death and resurrection. His passing from death to life will set the fire blazing that purifies and separates, and that destroys and rebuilds new life in God.

God renews our life of faith and unity as a community. It is time for us to do something for Holy Family Parish after so many years of worshiping in our current surroundings. Around us we see the need for repairs and renewal.  This Sunday we are starting a parish Capital Campaign which reflects God’s love and renewing spirit, “One Faith, One Family, One Parish.” This is our opportunity for communion in action, our chance “to set the earth on fire”! I invite each of you to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial offering to God, one that is meaningful for you and your family. The renewal of our worship space will enhance our faith – an adorned altar wall, better lighting and sound systems, new church pews and sacred art –  setting ablaze our renewed love, our faith in God, and our unity as a community of believers, one  Holy Family.

Blessings,

Fr. Albert B. Becher
