Flower offering by Dr. Cyril Jasmin. We Thank you.
May the good Lord and his Blessed Mother continue to be your hope, your peace and your strength. Amen.

Our Father's houses are so beautiful! They all have many distinctive and unique graces. The different communities of believers, young and old, have many special talents and gifts to share. God always makes everything so perfect. Even though we so often struggle in dealing with one another and have not yet seen the eternal peace, true goodness and beauty of living in a community, deep down in our hearts, we all know that we belong to a Universal Church and all will be well and end well in preparing for the eternal life with God. Here at St. Patrick's, I witnessed many talents and gifts, especially in these children whom I have encountered briefly the last few days. May this community continue to share and teach them to be good and faithful Christians as they contribute their talents and gifts for the good of all. Amen.
