Pastor's Message

 Brothers and Sisters,


When we say “we forgive”, we willingly give forth our hand and our heart to another in reconciliation.


In today’s Gospel, Jesus Christ says to His Priests:


“Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive, are forgiven them, whose sins you retain are retained.”


There is a difference between DIVINE Forgiveness and human forgiveness.


This difference is conveyed by the words

forgiveness” and “absolution.”


When the Priest says “I absolve,” the meaning is different; it means to take away.


The difference is, on the one hand, for us “to give forth” and on the other is for God “to take away” the separation due to sin. Jesus Christ is entrusting this DIVINE POWER to His Church in the person of the Priest.


The Priest with the Divine Power of Christ through the Holy Spirit “takes away” our sins.


As your Pastor and Priest these last 2 years, I’m blessed to have been the instrument of God’s Absolution for you, Thank you.


On a personal note, believe me when I say that it is a deep personal sacrifice for me to leave Saint Andrew Parish and start over again in another parish but I took an oath of obedience.  During these two years as your Pastor, please know I have worked tirelessly seven days a week and have served you with great zeal.  


May God bless you! 

Father Richard York, your Pastor
