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."

MY PRAYER FOR YOU THIS WEEK
The Scriptures today warn us about the danger of losing our souls because of selfishness. The rich man in Luke’s gospel ate good food, drank tasty wine, and enjoyed himself while Lazarus was around him dying of hunger. He refused to share with Lazarus what he has in abundance. The rich man turned his back on Lazarus and could not be bothered by the suffering around him. God positioned him along the path of Lazarus prosperity, but he chose to be indifferent. As a result, God created a chasm of eternity between himself and God. While he is in hell, Lazarus is in heaven. While on earth, he never believed Lazarus could be of help to him. But now, he is depending on Lazarus for water to quench his thirst. This is why we say: be kind to the people you meet on your way up, because you may meet them on your way down. We are called to care for each other. As we heed the call to justice may God bless us with all we need to live a dignified life and to make a difference in the world in Jesus name, Amen
PRAY FOR OUR MARYCARE MISSION
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.
