From the Rector: Marriage Preparation

Marriage Preparation: “On this journey [of marriage] prayer is important, it is necessary, always: he for her, she for him and both together. Ask Jesus to multiply your love. In the prayer of the Our Father we say: ‘Give us this day our daily bread’. Spouses can also learn to pray like this: ‘Lord, give us this day our daily love‘, for the daily love of spouses is bread, the true bread of the soul, what sustains them in going forward. This is the prayer for engaged couples and spouses. Teach us to love one another, to will good to the other! The more you trust in him, the more your love will be ‘forever’, able to be renewed, and it will conquer every difficulty.” Pope Francis – from an address on St. Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2014 We would like to invite couples who are considering Marriage to contact the parish soon in order to begin the Sacramental preparation for Holy Matrimony.  If you are discerning the vocation to marriage the Classes will be offered in the months of October, November and December, every other Tuesday evening.

From the Rector: Letter from Bishop

In the bulletin this week is the statement regarding Archbishop Vigano from Bishop Wall which can be read below. Bishop’s Letter 9.16.18 Also this statement was released last week: On Wednesday, September 05, the Diocese of Gallup received an inquiry from New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas requesting documents and records from the Diocese of Gallup. We look forward to cooperating with the Attorney General to ensure the safety of all the members of our diocese. In order to be proactive in the protection of children, the Diocese of Gallup is also reaching out to other potential interested parties, such as the Arizona Attorney General, as the diocese is located in both Arizona and New Mexico. The Diocese of Gallup remains committed to the ongoing protection of children, transparency in these matters and to providing healing for survivors of sexual abuse. As Jesus Christ teaches, “There is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light” (Luke 8:17).   If anyone would like a copy of the letter or the statement you are welcomed to come by the parish office Monday-Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m....

Your generous contribution to the Priests’ Retirement Fund will help secure these priests in their old age. Throughout the month of September, we will have a Retirement Fund Campaign to raise funds for the Priests’ Retirement Fund. The Bishop’s letter is attached below: Good Shepherd...
