Dear Friends in Christ,

The clergy and parish staff would like to thank you for your cards, generous giv-
ing, and prayers during the Christmas Season. Your words of support and
thoughtfulness is very much appreciated. It was a joy to serve our parishioners in
2009 and we look forward to journeying with you in this new year.

The finance council and I are grateful for the generosity in the Christmas collec-
tion. It was so nice to see how thankful we are to God for all His blessings. As we
give back to God, He will return to us a hundred-fold!

Let us continue to celebrate our Jubilee Year with great joy and thanksgiving!

In Christ,

Rev. Peter Jarosz, Pastor

Dear Friends,

The Church in Latin America boasts the world’s largest


Catholic population. However, a study commissioned in
the late 1990s by CELAM, the federation of Latin Ameri-
can Catholic bishops’ conferences, found that Latin
Americans were leaving the Church at the alarming rate
of approximately 8,000 people each day.
This exodus is the result of complex factors, ranging from
the strain that economic globalization places on communi- Joseph and the Amazing

are drawing people away from the Church. Because of a
