Dear Brothers and Sisters:

For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not
submit again to the yoke of slavery.

These are powerful words from our second reading today. Jesus wants us to be free! Free from sin, free from sadness, free from guilt, free from everlasting death. Freedom is such a precious gift that our God has given us. We are blessed in our beloved country to be able to freely express and practice our Catholic faith, but this right is being tested.
The US Bishops have released a document titled "Our First, Most Cherished Liberty," which discusses the utmost importance of religious liberty in our country. I have printed some and placed them in the vestibule and the near the elevator for you to take home and read. This is a great way to prepare ourselves spiritually for the upcoming 4th of July Holiday.
One important question I came across that I offer for you to ponder is: "How have you seen people of faith contribute to the common good of society?" Think about this, and discuss it with your friends, and I believe you'll be amazed to see the many different ways how faith-filled people transform the lives of others. Christ has set us free, and through our prayers, we pray for the ability to continue to freely and openly share the Gospel message here in our nation.
Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome Fr. Mariusz Beczek, OSJ, who is visiting us this week. Fr. Mariusz is going to be the new pastor of Holy Annunciation Parish in Hazleton at the end of July. If you see him at Mass this weekend, please give him a warm Pittston welcome! Have a blessed week.
In Christ,
Fr. John, OSJ.

Dear Parishioners:

Peace to you all! I wanted to take this opportunity to say, “Thank you!” for all of your warm wishes and support as I begin this new ministry as Parish Administrator. My prayer is that our parish will be a great witness of deep faith in Jesus Christ and His holy Catholic Church. Together we will continue to build up the Kingdom of God here in Pittston and beyond. Also, I would like to express my gratitude to Fr. Carlos for providing a smooth transition in pastoral leadership. Truly, Fr. Raymond and I will miss his presence here with us in our Oblate Community. Father left for California this past Wednesday and he will begin his ministry as Associate Pastor at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Bakersfield, California this weekend. His new address is:

Fr. Carlos Esquivel, OSJ
601 E. California Ave.
Bakersfield, CA 93307

In closing, I would like to publicly express my congratulations to Fr. Joseph Adonizio, a native son of our parish, as he celebrates his 60th Anniversary of Priesthood with us here this weekend! Please pray for him as he enjoys this great milestone in his life.

Many blessings to you all this week!

Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. John, OSJ
