Dear SMG parishioners:


I am writing to say thank you for your ongoing support of our parish as we weather the storm of the Coronavirus pandemic. I am grateful that you have taken the time to send in or drop off your Sunday envelopes. I miss you and pray for you every day. We may not be able to come to church on Easter Sunday, but remember, we don’t go to church: we ARE the Church. We are not able to receive the sacraments, but we ARE the sacrament of God’s love in our suffering world.

Once again, thank you for your faithful support of SMG.

With much love,

Father John
