From the Desk of Fr. Dennis


                                                                        Agents of Mercy


God’s mercy can make even the driest land become a garden, can restore life to dry bones…Let us be renewed by God’s mercy, let us be loved by Jesus, let us enable the power of His love to transform our lives too; and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation, and make justice and peace flourish.    – Pope Francis (2013)


Can we accept the challenge during this Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy to become agents of mercy?  What does that look like for you?  It is time today, Monday and Tuesday, to embark on our parish Mission.  Can we set aside this time, one afternoon and two evenings to immerse ourselves to make it part of our best Lent ever?  Our Mission is upon us – let us go on this journey together.


United in the Mercy of God,

Reverend Dennis J. Vincenzo
