“The priest’s fundamental relationship is to Jesus Christ,” Pope St. John Paul II wrote, “[but] intimately linked to this relationship is the priest’s relationship with the Church.” As pastor of St. Francis Xavier, I have decided to make use of our parish website to create an opportunity to deepen my relationship to the Church as instantiated in our parish.
My goal for the blog and homily pages is that they will provide a way in which I can be present to people who may not be able to make it to Mass, as well as to share with people some of my own ruminations about various items of interest.
The picture above is from my visit to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith back in 2010. It is among my fondest memories and I hope that my meager contributions here can share some of the joy I’ve had living and studying our faith.
God bless and thank you for visiting our parish website!
