Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Let us Pray for our Holy Father!

O God, the Shepherd and Ruler of all Your faithful people, mercifully look upon Your servant Francis I, whom You have chosen as the chief Shepherd to preside over Your Church.  We beg You to help him edify, both by word and example, those over whom he has charge, that he may reach everlasting life together with the flock entrusted to him.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen. 

God bless you!

  Fr. Marcus Pollard

Registracion en la Parroquia

Sabemos que cada domingo son muchas las personas que atienden a nuestra Iglesia por primera vez, de aquí surge la necesidad de explicar algunos de los beneficios que ustedes adquieren por el hecho de registrarse en ella. Dicha registración es necesaria para recibir los sacramentos de Bautismo, Confirmación y Matrimonio, así como cartas para ser padrinos o para confirmar su asistencia a nuestra Iglesia, - cartas de Inmigración u otras semejantes -. Es también una forma de enterarse más acerca  de la parroquia y de sus actividades, así como el poder ayudar a la sostenimiento de la misma y sus ministerios. No existe ninguna razón para no hacerlo, incluso si es una persona indocumentada. El estatus migratorio no tiene que ver nada con la pertenencia a la Iglesia, ni le perjudicará en absoluto, al contrario, serán muchos los beneficios que usted tendrá si lo hace. Puedes hacerlo en la Oficina de la Parroquia, la cual está abierta de 9 AM a 9 PM, de lunes a viernes o durante la mañana del sábado y domingo. Si tienes acceso al Internet puedes hacerlo a través de este medio, buscando en la página de la parroquia la forma de registración que está al final de la misma.
