A Year of Mercy
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The summer is rapidly drawing to an end. While many of you are preparing to gear up for the beginning of the new school year, I am preparing for my vacation. It has been in incredibly busy summer and I am looking forward to a few days away.
Pope Francis has declared that this upcoming year be a special Jubilee year focused on the gift of God’s mercy. The Year of Mercy will begin on December 8, 2015 and this date coincides with the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council.

Have a great week!
P.S. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the All Parish Mass and Picnic on the 20th of September.
