A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Bobby
Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. But when he saw how strong the wind was, he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught Peter. I am grateful for St. Peter: both for his impetuous faith and for his recognition of his own weakness. Jesus, I think, cherished both, and while He chided Peter for his doubt, it was only after he stretched out His hand to save His sinking friend. Look for Jesus’ hand stretched out to you during this pandemic: He will catch you!
I want to thank very much Brothers Austin Cambon and Artie Vásquez. They have been a wonderful part of our Capuchin community this summer and a great help as part of our pastoral team. As they continue with their formation, may the Lord bless and guide them. You are in our prayers, brothers! May the Lord bless and keep us all, give us peace, and send an end to this pandemic! Fr. Bobby

"Keep your eyes fixed on the outstretched arms of Christ crucified, let yourself be saved over and over again." Pope Francis
"Jesus keeps knocking on our doors, the doors of our lives. He doesn't do this by magic, with special effects, with flashing lights and fireworks. Jesus keeps knocking on our door in the faces of our brothers and sisters, in the faces of our neighbors, in the faces of those at our side." Pope Francis
@ArchbishopGomez: Friends, we need to practice the corporal and spiritual works of mercy - seeking contact with our Lord through serving others.
