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.
