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

If a virtuous person turns away from virtue to commit iniquity, he shall die. And if a sinner turns away from sin and begins to live righteously, he shall live. God is always just and fair and merciful and always ready to take us back even after we have strayed. Sin is what causes us to fall out of favor with God. Saint Paul encourages us to seek righteousness and embrace the same attitude that is in Christ Jesus: Humility, gentleness, compassion, faithfulness, loving concern for all, avoiding selfishness and vain glory. We are encouraged to avoid the self righteousness of the Pharisees and to seek him while he may be found. With all these in mind we pray: Dear God, remember your mercies, make known your ways to me and teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are my God and Savior, Amen.

PRAY FOR OUR MARYCARE MISSION
