Just kidding. Let me just point out that because God is in himself a communion of Divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we’re reminded how important community is for us, people created in God’s image. Our parish community here at St. Raphael is called to be a witness to that divine love, as we support one another in fellowship.
For that reason it’s important that the pastor (especially a new pastor) get good counsel from prayerful and engaged parishioners about how to guide our community forward. Please pray for our pastoral council candidates, and this week and next please prayerfully discern and vote for those you think God is calling to help me in this way. Thank you for your participation!
In the love of our Triune God, Fr. Phil Hurley, S.J. Pastor
