Letter from Fr. Phil
September 28, 2019
I am reaching out to Holy Family parishioners to say, “We need you.”
Today, more than ever before, Jesus is calling each of us to say, “yes!” to the needs of our families, our community, and our world. As we follow our own hearts, the pathway to your parish and your relationship with God is one of abundance, if we just have the courage to follow it! It is a pathway to friendship and community, spiritual growth, and the courage to seek God with all your heart.
But how do we seek God? What does that mean in the context of everyday living? As a member of our parish family, it means being a part of something bigger than ourselves. It’s leaving room in our hearts for the opportunities God often puts before us, but perhaps we’re too busy or too distracted to see. It’s taking a risk – a step of faith – to move beyond our comfort zone.
As your pastor, I want to personally invite you to think about ways you can seek God with all your heart: to have the courage to give Him your cares and concerns; to share in your time, talent, and treasure; and to fully live with a spirit of gratitude for all of His blessings.
Holy Family is a growing, faith-filled community, and we are flourishing with the wonderful people God has placed on our path. Our newly expanded worship space, education center and parish hall are evidence of just that – a generous, dedicated, and joy-filled community!
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
Yes, the Holy Spirit shines through each of us as we share time, talent, and treasure to bring Holy Family to life. Gifts of all sizes make possible our vibrant liturgies, parish school of religion (PSR) and youth activities, adult faith enrichment and 70+ ministries. I am hopeful as you discern over your decision to share a gift, you know of my sincerest gratitude for all you do to support our parish ministries, operations, and our recent capital improvements.
Many thanks for your continued prayers and support.
Come on Holy Spirit!
