Father Joel Joes        

Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospel was tempted in major ways in His claim as the One who is sent.

Temptation is a term common to all and that also not all individuals come to realize in one time or another that sometimes what’s happening is actually a temptation in his or her life’s situation.

We, as disciples on the way of our Lord Jesus Christ, are continuously given the ample time and chances to be like Him when faced with all kinds of temptations at all levels in different stages of our life-faith journey.

Each one of us, is sent to this particular local Church of (St. Michael’s, St. Anthony’s, St. Francis’, St. Mary’s) for a certain purpose and for sure His purpose for our very own good that we may not even come to realize yet and maybe what is needed for us is just to admit that we are just being tempted to do our own will when don't see with our very own eyes and mind what is happening that is not in accordance with our way of dealing with things around.

Let’s continue to open the door of our mind and heart to our Lord who triumphed against temptations as we travel inside the Lenten season following Him up to Jerusalem of his Crucifixion - offering of self because of true love. 


Fr. Joel, Mf  



We encounter the Singh family in India, where a mother and father are using innovative farming techniques to feed their family amidst a flood.  How is God inviting us to think outside the box in service to others this Lent?  Visit for more.                          


With only eight class times left, we are concentrating our efforts on helping families to instill our Catholic faith to their children. During this Lenten season, each week we will be handing out a simple project for the families to share together to make a more meaningful Lenten season.  This week’s project was taking time as a family and having a quiet pray time.  One of the important elements of the Lenten Season is repent

On Ash Wednesday the children might have heard the words, “Repent and believe in the Gospel.” This week when the family is gathered together at the end of the day, have everyone silently think about their day and then together say the prayer: 

Act of Contrition

O my God I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen


O my God, I am sorry for my sins because I have offended you. I know I should love you above all things. Help me to do penance, to do better, and to avoid anything that might lead me to sin. Amen.


O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to sin no more and to avoid

the near occasions of sin.


Since we have a low number children attending our program, we are seeking your help. If you have any suggestions on how to improve our program, and help families to educate their children about our Catholic faith, e-mail me at with title of improving the program. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome!

God bless,

Lois Maczuzak

Growing Future Church Leaders

Just as the early disciples traveled on the road to Emmaus with Jesus, today we have future church leaders journeying through the Emmaus program who will ultimately serve as parish lay ministers.  Parishes benefit greatly by having lay ministers as Pastoral Associates, Parish Business Managers, Director of Religious Education, and Religious Education Teachers. 

It takes approximately 3 years to complete the formation process.  On this journey these people experience a remarkable spiritual awakening that they learn to share with others.  

By participating in classes, workshops, and retreats and seminars, these leaders learn to use their love and skills to become the face of Christ to others.  Their opportunity is made possible by the Bishop’s Appeal.

Please prayerfully consider making a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal.  To make a gift to the Bishop’s Appeal contact your parish, visit the Bishop’s Appeal website at, or call Debbie toll-free at 877-500-3580 ext. 8184.

Helping Christians in the Holy Land:
