As we start the month of November, the Church directs our gaze to the heroes of our faith, the Saints, as well as the souls of the faithful departed. I thus encourage you to focus this month on an essential spiritual work of mercy: to pray for the living and the dead. Pick a day in November to do a family visit to one of the nearby cemeteries, praying especially for those who have no one to pray for them. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace!
Please pay close attention this weekend to the campaign volunteers who have given so much of their time, and personal resources, to help make the capital campaign a success. Several campaign volunteers will be speaking at Masses throughout the weekend, sharing their reasons why they are supporting the campaign and urging you to do the same.
I want to encourage you, again, to pray about how your family can participate in the campaign. I can’t stress enough how important the campaign is to the future of our parish and school, and how we need every family to make a pledge. Any amount, large or small, will be greatly appreciated and warmly celebrated.
Campaign representatives will also be outside after each Mass. Please take a pledge card home and pray about how your gift can truly be A Living Sacrifice, Holy and Acceptable to God. Please return your pledge cards as soon as possible. The public phase of our campaign is ending in just a few weeks and we have much to accomplish in the days to come!
Thank you for your continued support for Saint Theresa Catholic Church and, in advance, for your participation in this capital campaign.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Eurel Manzano
