Letter from Fr. Aurelio 5/21/2020:

Dear  friends:

As a parish community, together we are living through our return to  the  Church as per the Archdiocesan  guidelines.  In this “phase 1,”  the  doors of  the Church will  be  open  a  few  hours a  day  for  prayer.

I was  moved in my heart to  see  both adults and young people coming  to make  the  “Blessed  Sacrament” a  visit  to unburden their  emotions  and give their prayers.  Some  have  also come  prepared to  receive the  Sacrament  of Confession. The joy on their faces behind a mask was palpable. 

While the livestreaming  of  the  Mass  and  other  devotions  is playing an  important part  in maintaining  the  life  of  faith,  there is no substitute  for Catholics  being able to physically  attend and participate  in the  celebration of  the Mass and  the  other sacraments.  Our  faith  is  expressed powerfully  and  beautifully  though “seeing, touching,  and  tasting.”

Together with  Catholics everywhere,  we  desire  the complete opening of our  churches and  access to the  sacraments.  Until  then,  we  are invited to pray  and prepare.  We  are looking  forward  to “Phase 2.”

As we  are  approaching the Solemnity of  Pentecost, it is  important to  start the  novena of  preparation for the  coming  of  the Holy Spirit which you will see in a tab above.  “But  when  he  comes, the Spirit  of  truth,  he  will guide  you to  all  truth.” (John 16:13)

With  my  regard  and  the assurance  of my prayer.


Rev. Aurelio  Yañez
