From the Pastor’s Desk . . .
This past Thursday, I along with members of our parish family had the opportunity to venerate the relic of the heart of Saint Padre Pio. It was a great honor and privilege to hold in my very hands the relic of this great saint as members of our family came forward and venerated him. I kept praying quietly that I could lead many souls from St. Mary’s to the heart of Christ as Saint Padre Pio did. I asked him to keep my heart close to his heart. Be assured you all in my daily prayers and together we will answer that universal call to holiness!
