A Few Words from Father Steve

Dear Friends,

As September starts and school bells rings, we celebrated Catechetical Sunday last week. It gives me great joy to see such a wonderful program here. We congratulate and continue to support in our prayers all of our directors, catechists, parents and children. Each of these young people’s lives have moved me in an unique way. We pray for these and all who are beginning this school year as well as all young people in this stage of their lives. They are the ones who will lead us to the future, a future so in need of hope.

Our young people are amazing. As they grow older, it is my hope that they develop new ways of peace. With their leadership, I hope we never have to experience a tragedy like we did on September 11, 2001. The senseless violence of that day still brings us to our knees.

As we observed the 18th anniversary, I read about 9/11 Day. 9/11 Day is the international non-profit movement to observe September 11th every year as a day of charitable service and doing good deeds. It provides a positive way to forever remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims, honor those that rose in service in response to the attacks and remind people of the importance of working more closely together in peace to improve our world. Millions participate annually by taking time out on 9/11 to help others in need, in their own way. Perhaps each of us could do this as well in the future. Let us build up rather than tear down.

With love, Father Steve

God bless you. Father Steve
