My dear parishioners,

Peace and grace be upon you!

I very much appreciate the collaborative spirit we all have been exhibiting here in our common effort to strengthen and sustain our parish. Many of you have been making various sacrifices to help ensure the well-being of our church is not compromised. Sometimes you are not thanked enough, if at all, for your sacrifices. Please, even when I as your pastor fail to commend you, let the fact that you are doing a virtuous job fill your heart with joy knowing that no gracious acts escape the all-seeing eyes of God. He has called us to evangelize and that means to provide a safety-net for so many who are at risk. Our Lord has charged us to wash one another’s feet and help in building up and upholding his mystical body of which we are a part. We are called to serve and make the lives of others better.

St. Benedict the Moor Catholic Church, Columbus, has been serving our community and beyond since 1959. Human needs have not yet been wiped off, but unfortunately, they are rather on the increase. We cannot get tired of doing our best in tackling those challenges in so far as God keeps us and provides for us. St. Paul urges us: “Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we do not give up” (Galatian 6:9). My dear parishioners, it is in this spirit that I, your ‘Jealous Pastor,’ counting on your mutual understanding, generosity and re-dedication to our Christian calling to “cast into the deep,” crave your indulgence to ask for your support to this our project: Increased Offertory Program. Your increased generous contribution will help us maintain our parish and put a smile on the faces of far more people than we are able to do now.

Thank you and may God take care of your own personal needs as you try to help other people.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Charles Atuah, MSP.
