Pastor's Message

Brothers & Sisters,

The month of February is dedicated to the Holy Family.

Prayer to the Holy Family
By Pope Francis
Angelus, 29 December 2013

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, in You we contemplate the splendor of true love, to You we turn with trust. Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the Gospel, and small domestic Churches. Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again experience violence, rejection, and division: may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing. Holy Family of Nazareth, may we be made once more mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer. Amen

St. Martin de Porres, pray for us!
Fr. Dominic

Hermanos hermanas,

Oración a la Sagrada Familia Por
Papa Francisco
Ángelus, 29 de diciembre de 2013

Jesús, María y José, en vosotros contemplamos el esplendor del verdadero amor, a vosotros nos volvemos con confianza. Sagrada Familia de Nazaret, concede que nuestras familias también sean lugares de comunión y oración, auténticas escuelas del Evangelio y pequeñas Iglesias domésticas. Sagrada Familia de Nazaret, que las familias nunca vuelvan a experimentar violencia, rechazo y división: que todos los que han sido heridos o escandalizados encuentren pronto consuelo y curación. Sagrada Familia de Nazaret, háganos conscientes una vez más de la sacralidad e inviolabilidad de la familia, y de su belleza en el plan de Dios. Jesús, María y José, escuchad con gracia nuestra oración. Amén

¡San Martín de Porres, ruega por nosotros!
Padre Dominic
