My dear parishioners,
On this Easter Sunday, I reaffirm our relentless spirit as a Catholic Christian Community, which is evident in our ongoing worship and services during the pandemic. As I’ve always said, no pandemic or financial crisis could ever stop us from practicing and living our faith!
We have a fantastic community, built on the shoulders of parishioners who have gone before us and flourishing in the present time under our stewardship. We cannot let any catastrophe or trial extinguish the Light of Christ in this faith community.
This is the church we love—where you and your children receive the Sacraments and where we get spiritual nourishment.
This Easter, as we continue to deal with this pandemic, we never lose hope and faith in God. We continue to fulfill our commitment and mission to make Incarnation a true House of Worship, where everyone feels at home, regardless of race, language, culture, age, and gender. We continue to be a beacon of life, joy, and hope to everyone.
We are a strong family here at Incarnation. We are here for each other in health, sickness, and death—through every crisis and challenge.
I offer heartfelt thanks to the courageous and tireless efforts of all those volunteers involved in liturgy, liturgical ministries, technology and media ministry, bereavement ministry, catechetical ministry, social outreach, and others.
Thank you, our parish and school staff, for overcoming the challenging hurdles of this pandemic. Thank you, wonderful parishioners, for your great support!
We have not only survived. We are thriving!
May this Easter Season bring you hope and joy in our faith in the Risen Christ! Amen. Alleluia!
Your loving pastor,
Fr. Rodel "Odey" Balagtas
