2009 Archdiocesan Annual Appeal: Together in Mission

Thank you to those who have made a pledge or contribution. We have had a good response but we are still short of the parish goal. If you have not yet participated please do so soon as possible. Pledge envelopes are in the pews.

***

At the request of the Archdiocese we have another priest living in the rectory. I welcome Rev. Augustine Onyiloha. He is from Nigeria and is a chaplain at the Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital, where he works Sunday through Thursday.

I wish to thank the Guadalupana Society and its President Salvador Solis for the recent donation to the parish of $2,000. The Holy Name Society and its president Celso and Anita Fueconcillo for the recent donation of $2,500 to the parish for maintenance and repairs. Obstacles 4. We have entered the Holy season of Lent. I pray that we can all try to live the spirit of Lent during the coming weeks. It is a special time for penance, conversion, and almsgiving.

May God bless us all.
