Word From Monsignor

Dear Friends,

We are celebrating the Sundays after Epiphany which lead us to the three weeks before the season of Great Lent. These Sundays commemorate those who have left this earthly life for eternity.

The Sundays of the Deceased Priests, Righteous and Just (all saints) and Faithful Departed (all souls) are part of the pre Lenten preparation which also includes the Supplication of the Ninevites (days of fast) before we enter the rigors of Lent.

Always keep in mind that these commemorations and practices are not merely physical, but primarily spiritual to bring us close to Almighty God and to experience His Divine love and mercy. Let the preparations begin!

Sincerely in Christ,
+Chorbishop Anthony
