Is the Year of Faith really ending?


Bishop-Bergie-portaitIn my pastoral letter for the Year of Faith I shared a specific outcome for our diocese. In the concluding paragraph I stated, “My hope for the Year of Faith is that we will be able to fan the flame of goodness and truth in each one of us so that more and more people will be able to bask in its light and warmth. My prayer is that we will all discover the joy of believing.”

Pray for Boston Victims

1604-boston-marathonOur heartfelt prayers are offered on behalf of the victims of the senseless bomb attack during the Boston marathon yesterday.  It is only our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that allows us to confront evil and not be overwhelmed.  To the deceased, may God grant eternal rest; to the injured, healing; and to all, renewed hope in the goodness of God.

An Easter Greeting 2013

30-easter-lilyI wish to take this opportunity to wish you a very joyous Easter.  This is the season of hope as Jesus Christ, our Risen Lord, triumphed over sin and death.  The recent election of a new Holy Father is also a hopeful sign.


We pray for Pope Francis and ask our Lord and Blessed Mother to watch over him and to grant him wisdom, health and peace.  May this Easter be a time of renewed hope for us all!
