Glory be to Jesus Christ! As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our beautiful parish on October 8 & 9, 2016, we must be thankful to God our Heavenly Father for all the blessings we have seen in our parish over the decades. Yes, modern society has changed greatly in these 50 years, but the Word of God has not! Our Father in Heaven still asks us to be the face of Jesus to everyone we meet, every single day of our lives! So to all parish members past and present, to all guests and friends of our parish community, let us indeed celebrate these past 50 years of St. Athanasius parish with joy and happiness, but also remember that God’s work through us is always ongoing. We still have work to do according to Christ’s mission to us, and let us accept this challenge with great joy and gladness! God Grant you many years!
