Hello Friends!
Gratia et Gaudium in Fide!- Grace and Joy in Faith!

I started to serve our parish since September 1, 2016. Little by little and very slowly I believe to be learning several things and also by being so, a sort of adjustment here and there is absolutely necessary for me and I believe also for you, my dearest co-travelers in St. Michael’s community. Before being assigned to serve here in the United States of America, down in my country for more or less nine consecutive years, I was assigned not in the parish apostolate but in our religious community in different assignments. So, the reason why I, a bit mention this, because I think this will somehow help you all understand me slowly and smoothly along the way of my serving in here.

To be honest with you all, I am still struggling with the culture differences and my little knowledge of who and what America is for us down in my country. A sense of your superiority stand to us people of the so-called third world country. This is just so to let you know of where I am at this moment of my service in this parish. So, whenever I am not that firm in some of my decisions, please just bear with me and please be gentle in teaching me to understand what I need to understand and work with as far as my position is concerned.

We are in the period of commemorating our Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection. Very important pious exercises or practices are being lived during this season of Lent, like the Via Crucis or Station of the Cross; also the Visita Altaris (Visiting the Reposition Altar of the Blessed Sacrament and make a moment of Solemn and very personal and family Adoration) on Holy Thursday after the celebration of the Institution of the Holy Eucharist that includes the washing of the feet ceremony and on Holy Friday we have the Veneration of the Holy Cross and then the very rich of symbolism and spiritual meaning for us Catholics, the Easter Vigil Mass.

How I wish that these beautiful spiritual celebrations be done in our parish here at St. Michael’s every year and have a lot of people volunteers to get involved because I believe these liturgical celebrations carry its own powerful effects to our personal faith. But because of lack of priests around, we are forced to do the rotation of services between the three parishes that this single priest must serve by hook or by crook. So please be contented what we got by this time and hope that an enhancement may come soon. For now please continue to come to St. Michael to worship, pray and praise our Lord in the church in spite of our human weakness in here. Rest assured of my prayers for all of you and so wishing you a very Holy and blessed and and Happy Easter 2016

Co- Traveler, Fr. Joel, MF

We are open the first and third Tuesday of the month from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm., which will be April 5th & 19th.

JOY CHOIR: The JOY Choir leads the congregation in song at the Saturday evening mass. Our mission is to sing with JOY for Jesus, Others, Yourself. Approximately ten people sing in the choir led by guitarist, Ellyn Dercks. We practice one-half hour before the Mass. If you enjoy music, please consider sharing your instrumental and/or vocal talents by joining the JOY Choir. Weekly attendance is not expected as we realize people have family, work and other commitments – just sing when available. We would love to have you join us!
