A Message From Father Francis:

As we prepare for Pentecost Sunday, we pray: “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and KINDLE in them the fire of Thy love.” 

The Holy Spirit truly needs to KINDLE in us God’s love so we can light the world.  The whole world is in desperate need of renewal. Our Lord desires to KINDLE and inspire us to be instruments of His grace to truly bring about the reality of God’s kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.

Let us pray that God KINDLE and stir the hearts of all of our teens and adults preparing for confirmation this Pentecost Sunday as they are sealed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. 

And of course, let us continue to lift up Deacon Cesar who will be ordained a priest tomorrow at the Cathedral.  Please join us for his first Mass at 12 noon this Sunday. (No 11 am Mass this Sunday)  May God KINDLE in soon-to-be Fr. Cesar’s heart a fire and a passion for service to God’s people.
