WINTER EDITION 2019
A message from Father Mike…
We are indeed a vibrant parish family, and I know how blessed I am to be called your “Father”!
While I am saddened when I bury a parishioner, and feel, at times, overwhelmed by the trials which some of you are facing at any time, I know ABVM is family!! I am grateful to God and to you when I see an uptick in parish registrations and baptism arrangements; these are really signs of a hopeful future, as our parish family continues to grow. We are on solid footing as a parish because of your generosity, while I wish more of our disconnected family members will return to “the fold”. I count on you to invite your family members who may be disconnected to come back to living our faith, and appreciate the power of faith in God as we navigate a challenging world terrain. My thanks to all who work so hard to produce this exciting newsletter, and encourage you to look at the periodic highlights on the monitors in the narthex of our church.
Peace and love, family!
