My Dear OLHC Family,
I am honored and overjoyed at being appointed administrator of the Our Lady Help of Christians parish. In just one week of moving into this community, I have had the privilege to meet so many of you and realize how blessed OHLC is with many parishioners willing to give of their time and talents to foster community. Well, I am here to serve you. Every challenge is an opportunity to change and grow. I am ready and willing to work and pray with all of you. As I stated at Sunday’s liturgy, our God is a God of surprises who encourages us and challenges us to reach beyond. “Let us journey together,” as we seek to build a stronger and more vibrant parish of Our Lady Help of Christians.
I hope everyone will remember the message I shared at last Sunday’s homily. We are all created in love. We are all created for love and that love knows no boundaries and doesn’t have any conditions. It should be given to others because it is given to us by our God. My goal is always to bring people together and to help them realize that each person has the spirit of God in them. Remember that God was working here before I arrived – I am simply his servant. So let us all look for what He has been doing and work together to continue to make a difference in every day. Let us all serve the Lord with gladness!
May our dear Lord continue to shower our parish community and each one of you with His blessings of love, peace, happiness, good health, and prosperity.
I look forward to working with and for all of you!
Yours in Christ,
Father Jose “Johnson” Kochuparambil
