Letter from the Pastor:
Many years ago, 36 years in fact, God spoke to me about a Catholic Family Life Center. Upon placing that idea in my mind, I thought that it was a good idea. After that, I completely forgot about the idea and went on with my Priesthood. God planted that seed in my mind and then when the time was right and God was ready to begin the undertaking in full and incredible force, the seed burst into full bloom.
This year, we celebrate the Fifth Anniversary of the Catholic Family Life Center. Not my idea, but God’s command. Why you ask? I have come to realize it is because of evil’s attack on Marriage and the Family Life. God’s response is to build up marriage and the family. For it is here that the Seed of Faith grows.
In the beginning, there was a great struggle, as evil did not want this endeavor to happen and there at times is still resistance today.
However, nothing can defeat God’s will and desire. So today and this year, we celebrate the Catholic Family Life Center.
God’s response is here now to help defeat the forces of evil that are committed to destroy Faith and Family. God’s will be done! For with Him we are committed to strengthen Family Life so that the Faith may be known and lived.
Praise Be God!
May Saint Michael our Patron, protect our Catholic Family Life Center.
