LETTER FROM THE PASTOR, January 22, 2023

Dear Parishioners,

In his Apostolic Letter Aperuit illis(AI) Pope Francis writes, “I hereby declare that the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time is to be devoted to the celebration, study and dissemination of the word of God.”

The pope suggests the following ways to mark the Sunday of the Word of God. At the same time, he acknowledges that parishes “have undertaken a wealth of initiatives to make the sacred Scripture more accessible to believers, to increase their gratitude for so great a gift, and to help them to strive daily to embody and bear witness to its teachings” (AI 2). In a similar vein, he invites parishes to mark the Sunday of the Word of God in “their own ways” (AI 3).   Continue reading…
