This past week was bit tough for us. We lost two faithful members from our community. Ernesto Lacsina and Stephen Harvey. Ernesto the father of Christina Gamo was living in the nursing home for the longest time. Stephen Harvey on the other hand was so involved in the parish as an Usher, Current President of St. Vincent de Paul, Past Grand Knight and a daily communicant. Both Ernesto and Stephen are remembered by their families as great Dads. Many of the parishioners witnessed their faithfulness and dedication. As a parish community we extend our heartfelt sympathies and prayers to the sorrowing families. May their souls rest in peace.
As some of you are aware, I will be leaving for a month’s vacation to India on January 28 and will be back in the first week of March. The winter weather looks like is getting harsher; therefore, it is good to escape to a hot place for some time. Don’t be jealous, hahaha. I am sure, our two seasoned associates Fr. Ravi and Fr. Jim will look after your spiritual needs at its best. Please don’t find more work for them, I already given them enough.
Fr. James Cherickal, Pastor
