Welcome to St. Justin -
St. Michael Parish

 

Father Emmanuel Ihemedu

OUR MISSION

We are called to be the Presence of God in our Community by Serving the poor, Welcoming the immigrants and Evangelizing our Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

OUR VISION

  • To seek multicultural spiritual vitality
  • To seek accountability, social and fiscal responsibility in order to accomplish our mission
  • To embrace a missionary options for the transformation of our church customs, ways of doing things, language and structures to meet the challenges of today's evangelization.    

FATHER'S CORNER

Today marks the first Sunday of Lent. Typically, it is a forty day period that calls for spiritual renewal through prayer, fasting, almsgiving, and other forms of self-denial. The ashes we received on Ash Wednesday sets the tone of the season which remind us of the    following: That as we bear the sign of the cross made by the ashes, we are given a mandate and a responsibility to be ambassadors of Christ everywhere we go, and that we are to spread the sweet aroma of divine goodness. It also reminds us that as the palm fronds and olive branches are burnt and transformed by fire into a finer substance, so must we through acts of penance, and self-denial be made into finer human beings, and into offerings     acceptable to God. Through acts of piety, we are expected in this holy season and always, to burn off the rough edges of sin, anger, hate, resentment, unforgiveness, impurity, unhealthy pride, lust, greed, egocentrism, et cetera. It is a season that reminds of our nothingness and of his majesty; dust we are and to dust we shall return. As a result, there is a need to deepen our relationship with him. This deepening of my relationship with God is a path that goes through the neighbor. Hence, it is also a time to seek and work for a more harmonious relationship with one another. These and more are the reasons for this season. So, we pray: May God grant us by our commitment to the demands of this holy season, a renewed friendship with him, love for one another, and peace with ourselves, Amen.

PRAY FOR OUR MARYCARE MISSION
TO NIGERIA


Marycare’s singular mission is to break the vicious cycle of poverty in communities marginalized and isolated because of their ethnic and social economic status. Marycare Medical Clinic is one of the programs we sponsor to carry out our mission. On January 12, 2016 the official opening of Marycare Health Centre took place. The health center is now providing healthcare to some 10,000 residents of the town of Ejemekwuru and its surrounding neighbors. It has 4 rooms, one ward and an open reception area. The people of Ejemekwuru and their surrounding neighbors will forever remain grateful to all our donors who made this possible. May God reward you abundantly.
