Letter from Father John
February 26, 2023
Dear Brothers and Sisters.
I want to thank God first of all for the gift of life, of salvation, and for having called me to the priesthood. Every priest during his ministry has the opportunity to meet different communities of faith and love, today I am here with you, in this parish community of Saint Joseph the Worker. I thank you all for the welcome you have given me, and I hope that with God's help I can give the best of myself so together we can continue to work in building the Kingdom of God on this earth, so we can continue to grow in faith in God and in his Son Jesus Christ, Our Lord, and so our pilgrimage through this world may always be animated by the hope that we have in eternal life.
As a community that lives and celebrates the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist, I encourage you to congregate every weekend to give thanks to God, to pray for our needs and those of our brothers, especially to continue to pray for Father Janusz Mocarski and his speedy recovery.
I take this opportunity to invite you to join me on Tuesday, March 21, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. to thank God for my 25 years of priestly ministry. Your presence in this celebration is very important to me, you are my family here in the United States of America. I am waiting for you!
May God bless you always,
Father John Granados.
Queridos hermanos y hermanas.
Quiero darle primero gracias a Dios por el regalo de la vida, de la Salvación y por haberme llamado al sacerdocio. Todo sacerdote durante su ministerio tiene la oportunidad de conocer diferentes comunidades de fe y de amor, hoy estoy acá con ustedes, en esta comunidad parroquial San Jose Obrero. Le agradezco a todos la acogida que me han brindado, y espero que con la ayuda de Dios entregar lo mejor de mi mismo para que juntos sigamos trabajando en la construcción de Reino de Dios en esta tierra y así podamos seguir creciendo en la fe a Dios y en el amor a Dios Padre Misericordioso y en su Hijo Jesucristo, Nuestro Señor, para que nuestro peregrinar por este mundo siempre este animado en la esperanza que tenemos en la vida eterna.
Como comunidad que vive y celebra los sacramentos, especialmente la Santa Eucaristía los animo para que todos los fines de semana nos congreguemos para darle gracias a Dios, para orar por nuestras necesidades y las de nuestros hermananos, especialmente para que sigamos orando por el Padre Janusz Mocarski y su pronta recuperación.
Aprovecho esta oportunidad para invitarlos para el martes 21 de Marzo de 2023 a las 7:30 p.m para juntos le demos gracias a Dios por mis 25 años de ministerio sacerdotal, para mi es muy importante su presencia en dicha celebración, ustedes son mi familia acá en los Estados Unidos de America. Los espero!
Que Dios los bendiga siempre
Padre John Granados.
