Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

How blessed are we to be able to walk this earthly pilgrimage with one another as members of Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church! No matter what is happening around us — be it a pandemic, challenges in our culture, or social strife — Our Lady of the Mountains is our safe haven. It is the place where we can come together, gathered around the Eucharistic table, to worship and serve our Lord.

It is also the place where we serve one another. Here, united in God’s love, we are a visible sign of the body of Christ and together we can accomplish amazing things. Nourished by prayer and the sacraments, members of our parish community are journeying on the path of discipleship and growing in relationship with Jesus Christ each day. We value formation in the faith and sharing our faith with others through evangelization. We also know the importance of bringing the love of God to our neighbors through acts of charity and service. Through our many ministries, and our social and service-oriented outreach programs, we put into action the truth stated so eloquently by St. John the Apostle: “If God so loved us, we also must love one another” (1 Jn 4:11).

With this in mind, I invite you to respond to Our Lady of the Mountain’s new stewardship program: “Be faithful. Be Holy. Be a Disciple of Christ.” Please review the contents of this brochure and prayerfully consider how you and your family can play an active role in continuing the work of Jesus Christ through our parish community. Our goal is to increase our Sunday offertory contributions in order to bring Jesus Christ to as many people as possible. This is no easy task in today’s climate, but I am confident that our dedicated parishioners are up to the challenge.

On September 18th and 19th, the parish will be holding a special Commitment Weekend, inviting members of our community to connect with one another and to make a financial commitment that will allow Our Lady of the Mountains to continue its important work. We are counting on you! Please participate in our “Be faithful. Be Holy. Be a Disciple of Christ.” Program and help us respond to God’s great gift of love by loving one another with the heart of His Son.

Thank you for your generosity, prayers, and commitment to Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church!

In Christ,

Fr. Mike Martinez

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,

¡Cuán bendecidos somos de poder caminar esta peregrinación terrenal entre nosotros como miembros de la Iglesia Católica de Nuestra Senora de las Montanas! No importa lo que esté sucediendo a nuestro alrededor — ya sea una pandemia, desafíos en nuestra cultura o conflictos sociales — la Iglesia Católica de Nuestra Senora de las Montanas es nuestro refugio seguro. Es el lugar donde podemos unirnos, reunidos alrededor de la mesa Eucarística, para adorar y servir a nuestro Señor.

También es el lugar donde servimos el uno al otro. Aquí, unidos en el amor de Dios, somos un signo visible del cuerpo de Cristo y juntos podemos lograr cosas increíbles. Alimentados por la oración y los sacramentos, los miembros de nuestra comunidad parroquial están recorriéndose en el camino del discipulado y creciendo en relación con Jesucristo cada día. Valoramos la formación en la fe y compartiendo nuestra fe con los demás a través de la evangelización. También sabemos la importancia de llevar el amor de Dios a nuestros vecinos a través de actos de caridad y servicio. A través de nuestros muchos ministerios, y nuestros programas de servicios comunitarios y sociales, ponemos en práctica la verdad declarada tan elocuentemente por San Juan el Apóstol: “Si Dios nos amó, también nosotros debemos amarnos mutuamente.” (1 Jn 4:11)

Con esto en mente, les invito a responder al nuevo programa de corresponsabilidad de la Iglesia Católica de Nuestra Senora de las Montanas: “Se Fiel. Se Santo. Se Discipulo de Cristo.” Por favor revisen el contenido de este folleto y consideren con oración cómo usted y su familia pueden desempeñar un papel activo en la continuación del trabajo de Jesucristo a través de nuestra comunidad parroquial. Nuestro objetivo es aumentar nuestras contribuciones a la ofrenda semanal con el fin de llevar a Jesucristo al mayor número posible de personas. Esto no es ninguna tarea fácil en el clima de hoy, pero estoy seguro de que nuestros feligreses dedicados están listos para el desafío.

El 18 y 19 de Septiembre, la parroquia celebrará un Fin de Semana de Compromiso especial, invitando a los miembros de nuestra comunidad a conectarse entre sí y a hacer un compromiso financiero que permita a la Iglesia Católica de Nuestra Senora de las Montanas continuar su trabajo importante. ¡Contamos con ustedes! Por favor, participen en nuestro Programa “Se Fiel. Se Santo. Se Discipulo de Cristo” y ayúdennos a responder al gran regalo del amor de Dios al amarnos unos a otros con el corazón de Su Hijo.

¡Gracias por su generosidad, oraciones y compromiso a la iglesia de Nuestra Senora de las Montanas!

En Cristo,

Padre Mike Martinez

Pray for Vocations

We need to pray for Vocations to the priesthood and religious life, so Bishop Weisenburger has asked the parishioners of the Diocese to specifically pray the rosary for Vocations. This is a critical issue for the future of our Diocese.  If you would like to pray along with our Bishop, you can go to this link: Let us pray the Rosary with our Bishop for more Vocations.
