Strife has no color
It has no limitations
It comes in all sizes, shapes and forms
Whether you are ready for it or not
It may strike at anytime
It may strike you
There are no solid answers
There are no solid solutions
There is just us and what we make of it
Living through 2020 we have learned many things
We learned to appreciate those who care for us
We learned to appreciate those who teach us
We learned to appreciate ourselves and our fortitude
More importantly we learned that life is a precious gift
A gift not to be taken for granted
A gift that comes with a price
A price so rewarding that it fills our hearts with love
So we give thanks and are humble
We have so much before us
We walk with one foot in front of the other
Our arms linked closely to society as we heal
Picking up the pieces and building anew
A better us – a better society
With clearer vision and greater appreciation
Of what may lay ahead

To Those Who Support Food Drives
From Julieta Gonzalez
Good morning, good people!
I can’t tell you what it was like when I drove up to my neighbor’s door with the most beautiful and generous food boxes you distributed last evening. She’s the single mom of a young boy, takes care of her own mom and while employed as a kinder teacher, a paycheck goes only so far, especially during the holidays.
The look of happiness and joy on her face was priceless. No tears, just JOY and her statement of “We really needed this,” said it all.
On behalf of my neighbor, another thank you!
Thank you, my dear Co-workers! looking forward to us all working together in person, soon!
You are in my prayers! To all my co-workers who have requested prayers for yourself or a loved one.
To the Catholic Foundation, Thank you for all you do to support the people of our Diocese.
To all the amazing priests of the Diocese, Bishop Weisenburger and Bishop Kicanas, Thank you for fortifying my faith!
Happy Valentine’s Day
