Greetings and blessings in the name of our Lord.
As I write to you on this holy day of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, we are mindful of the needs of others. The Lord said, “You are to love your God with all your heart, mind and soul, but do not forget your neighbors.”
His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH is appealing to all the churches in our Archdiocese to be a neighbor to the victims of Hurricane Ida in Louisiana. There will be a second tray collection on Sunday. If you are not able to attend church on Sunday, kindly make your check payable to The Basilica of St. Mary, earmarked Hurricane Relief and mail it to the church office.
Yours in His Service,
