Today we celebrate our Sacred Liturgy in our first parish church at the Winchester location and is now our parish gymnasium. In many wonderful ways it shows the growth of our Catholic community in Campbell and surrounding areas and also the legacy that we celebrate with prayers of thanksgiving and joy.
If you remember this past Lenten season, the parish gave each family a small seedlings of a sunflower. The hope was that this would be a tangible and real symbol of how our faith is called to grow as we journey with Jesus Christ. Attached are a few photos of one families symbol of faith as their sunflower has flourished to more than 8 feet tall. It is a remarkable understanding of how trusting in the Divine Providence of our Heavenly Father our faith can spout and grow to great heights. It is a simple reminder of Jesus’ words to us, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”(Mt 17:20)
During these summer weeks I encourage you all to take time in reflection about the growth of your spiritual life and how we are sharing the gifts of time, talent and treasure with God and his holy Church.
You continue to be in my prayers.

“For a parish to actually be a ‘family of families’ calls for concrete actions of hospitality and generosity. St. John Paul II said that ‘opening the doors to one’s home, and still more of one’s heart,’ is a mode of imitating Christ. To give help and to receive help are intimate things. No one, especially a child, parents struggling with unexpected crises, vulnerable elderly people, or anyone who is suffering, should be lonely in a parish family. There is no substitute for ordinary parishioners simply befriending and serving one another during the week, extending church beyond Sunday mornings.” (#88 Love is our Mission: The Family Fully Alive) This is our mission and your mission.
St. Lucy Catholic Church strives to live the message of Jesus in inviting all to become members of the family of God in following him in word and action. In living our Catholic faith we are called to enter into a personal and life long relationship with our Lord Jesus.
As followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to serve and to evangelize the world in living the Word of God. Our parish invites everyone to share in this relationship. If you have any questions or cannot find the information you are looking for please call the parish office or send us an email.
May God continue to bless you and hold you gently in his divine hands.
Your servant in Christ,
