Settling In

Dear Family,

I am starting to get settled in.  It always takes time.  I have enjoyed meeting so many of the parishioners. Thank you for your warm welcome and hospitality.  I really do cherish your kindness.  To me it is a sign of God’s presence.

Nothing is normal for the time being.  It can feel like there is always the shadow of Covid-19, even on a good day.  Yet during this time of turbulence, I have always repeated to myself a very old Catholic saying, “The Cross is steady while the world is turning.”  I have held onto this saying closely since March and haven’t let go of it yet.  I really believe this.  The cross of Jesus Christ must always be our anchor during change.  This is where true peace can only be found.

Christ’s Peace,

Fr Brian
