Dear Parishioners,

 I bet we're all saying, "I can't believe it's Labor Day already! Time really does fly!”

We've enjoyed the summer in many different ways. Of course, students have had vacation from school. So many of us use this time of year to enjoy some free time.

Some of us may have traveled during the summer, gone to the shore or enjoyed a swimming pool. Summer always gives us the opportunity to take a break from routine and enjoy time with family and friends.

Now it's time to go back to school or work. The vacation season is coming to an end. Hopefully we go back feeling refreshed.

As always, we want to thank God for His Blessings, for watching over us as we enjoyed our summer. We also want to ask God to continue to watch over us as we move through the upcoming year.

Jesus talks to us in today's Gospel about putting the Lord first in our life, not letting anything get in the way of our relationship with Him. It's important to remember that the Lord is always present to us. He doesn't leave us alone.

As we look back on our vacation time, let's thank God for all of His gifts and ask for His continued blessings. Let's be sure we listen to Jesus and put the Lord first in our life.

Sincerely in Christ,

Father Dominick
