If only more people would have walked through your doors each Sunday at 9:30am to receive the Holy Eucharist and feel the unmistakable presence of our Lord Jesus and Our Blessed Mother.
If only more people would have known we believe they would have come, to pray, to cry, to feel less lonely, to be accepted unconditionally, to sing and be joyful, to belong and to be embraced by the unique and diverse family of every kind of people that call Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish home.
They would have felt the warmth, seen the genuine smiles, experienced the hope and the hugs and the gratitude. They would have been part of the laughter shared after Mass in our community room where everyone is invited and everyone is family.
Our dear beloved church we tried so hard that more would know that the True and Unconditional Love of Christ lives here and we are on fire for this purpose. This is Christ's home and all are welcome in this place no matter what no matter who. This is Christ's home and we are His servants, His children. This is Christ's home and everyone who enters is equally loved by Him and is deserving of our love and respect and help. This is Christ's home, and we never forget that.
Dear Lord as Your good and faithful servants we will share Your Love and will serve you however and wherever you lead us. We have experienced first hand that "we can change the world we live in one act of Christ's Unconditional Love at a time."
We humbly ask that You will preserve this Sacred place so that Mass can and will always be celebrated within these walls. Let it continue to serve You and Your people with highest love and in accordance to Your Holy Will.
Please Lord and Blessed Mother Mary watch over the family of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish and help us through the sadness of this transition. Only you know our hearts. Only you know what lies beneath the tears on the faces of those who each Sunday at 9:30am walked through the doors of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish.
And if by some miracle you should invite us to serve you here again we say, yes Lord yes!
With deepest gratitude,
The faith family of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish
