To all of the men and my fellow brothers in Christ:
For more than 20 years, St Mary’s has hosted Christ Renews His Parish weekends/retreats here at our Parish. St. Augustine once said, “Our hearts are restless O’Lord until they rest in you.” Our parish’s heart is restless until it rests in “You!” You are the Parish. Your family is the Parish, and without you we cannot stand God strong. I wish to take this opportunity to personally invite you to join us in March for this awesome inspirational weekend of welcome, renewal and faith. I especially encourage the men who are new to our parishioners to come and join us. What a Great way to meet other parishioners and share a common bond we call our Catholic Faith. One simple “Yes” can make a tremendous difference in our lives and the lives of those dear to us. I am convinced that Christ Renews His Parish is one of the reasons for our Parish’s warmth, generosity, and closeness. With your presence, Christ Renews His Parish will continue to be the spirit driven difference in your life, your families and in our Parish.
Sincerely and humbly I remain your brother in Christ,
Rev. Robert W. Zilliox, JCL
