Our Catholic community welcomes all to encounter Christ, experience His merciful love, and form true disciples

Christmas 2020

Dear Parishioners,

 

The past 2020 had been bitter, sweet. Bitter because there were lots of ordeals we had to go through; the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the cancellation of the celebration of public Masses and other Sacraments, the closure of churches that led to outdoor services, just to name a few.   Nevertheless, sweet because these trials only make our faith steadfast and stronger. The desire to be with the Lord gets even stronger.During this difficult time, God’s faithful especially here at St. John the Baptist Parish have proven their unwavering love for the Lord.

 

As we commemorate the birth of the Lord Jesus, let us ask for His continued guidance and protection. He will never leave us untended for He is the Emmanuel, which means God-is-with-us. God is bigger and stronger than all our problems. Sometimes, He allows us to become weak and vulnerable, only to make us stronger.

 

On behalf of Fr. Cleetus, Fr. Haran, Deacons Bill and Jim, and the Parish Staff, thank you for your generosity with your time, talent, and treasure.  I ask for your continued generosity and support as we embark on another precarious journey. “God loves a cheerful giver.”

 

I am wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a bountiful

New Year!

 

Fr. Renier Siva,

Pastor
