Pastoral Letter November 12, 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Thank you for your recent participation in our Parish Assembly, this past Sunday. It is critically important that we come together as a community and pray, discuss, deliberate and move on the administrative issues which help to organize and govern our parish. I thank you for your patience in what turned out to be a long meeting, filled with many important topics.

Please keep in mind, today and always, that every parish assembly, every parish council meeting, every ministry organization, every social gathering, every outreach project, every outing, every opportunity we take, to assemble as a St. Anna family, will always be connected to the Altar. We are a people of faith, connected by the fruits of the Holy Spirit and the ministering grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This week’s Bulletin is filled with a myriad of activities and services. As we continue to “come down to earth,” with the closing of one real estate chapter, and the anticipation of all that the good Lord has in mind for us, let us be filled with our love for one another, and grounded in the spiritual principles which led to the creation of our parish.

Notably, we have on our schedule, our Gala, to be held on December 9th. This is intended to be a family celebration of all that has been accomplished by our work with the Capital Campaign. It is not intended as a fund raiser, but rather an opportunity to give thanks to our parish for all that’s been done in 2017. In the presence of His Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver, and in commemoration of one of the Feasts of St. Anna, the Conception of the Theotokos, we have much to celebrate. Please join us!

Thank you for your continued love and prayers towards our parish and let us look to 2018 for all that is to come, unto the glory of God and for the benefit of His faithful.

Much Love in Christ,
Fr. Anthony
