Welcome to St. Justin and
St. Michael Parishes

 

Father Emmanuel Ihemedu

 

"We are two Catholic churches, one Catholic family striving to live a life of complete service to God and neighbor. At Saint Justin and Saint Michael, Christ is the host and Christ welcomes all. I join my parishioners to invite you to worship with us on Sunday. No matter where you are in life, no matter where you stand in life-single, married, divorced, single mother, single father, homeless, immigrant, handicapped in some way, sick, lonely and alone, widow, grieving - we welcome you."
          - Father Emmanuel Ihemedu, Pastor

MY PRAYER FOR YOU THIS WEEK

Today begins the ordinary season of the year, not ordinary because it is of any less significance than the other seasons of the liturgical year but because the remaining Sundays are numbered consecutively up to the Sunday preceding the beginning of Lent.  Moreover, it is a season in which the church celebrates the mysteries of salvation not in one specific aspect but in all aspects.  This season is characterized by hope as symbolized by its dominant color-Green.  Isaiah's message to a broken people spells out this hope in terms which cannot be mistaken. This message is through Israel the people of the old covenant to you and I the heirs of the new: The Lord has chosen you, through you he shall show his glory; because he formed you from your mother's womb, the Lord will make you glorious in his sight, he will be your strength, he will restore all your lost fortunes and make you a light for all nations (Isaiah 49:3-6).  May your life be a testimony to these promises, Amen.
