Welcome to St. Justin -
St. Michael Parish

 

Father Emmanuel Ihemedu

 

"We are a catholic church, one Catholic family striving to live a life of complete service to God and neighbor. At Saint Justin - 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's Gospel is full of very soothing words that could only come from the beloved of the Father, the word incarnate, Jesus himself. The fear and terror of his horrific execution on the cross is replaced by the glory of his resurrection. And just as they were getting used to his being around, he announces his departure once again. We can only imagine how perplexed this announcement had left them. But he was not going to leave them orphans, hopeless, un-shepherded. He is sending them the advocate, the spirit of the Father, the spirit of consolation of peace and of joy; the empowering spirit that would teach them everything and lead them to the truth. It is not just sometimes, but always, the case that each time we feel lonely and abandoned, betrayed and hopeless, sick and confused, miserable, dejected and torn to shreds by the difficulties and challenges of life, Jesus is always there to help; he never leaves us orphans! Realize child of God that his spirit not only abides with but lives in you. And what is more, Jesus assures you and I: Because I live, you too shall live. Dear Lord, grow our faith in your living Word and by an act of absolute faith in your Word, give us peace, give us joy, give us happiness beyond the reach of this world and most of all, give us life that never dies,  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.
