Fr Jones New Car!

I am grateful and want to thank our wonderful parishioner's, summer visitors and our pastor, Rev. Thomas Flowers, for considering the need, and responding generously to purchase a car to help and support our missionary Priests and Bishops  coming from India and in their ministry. Our ‘Missionary Cooperation Plan’ which works through Diocesan Propagation of Faith Offices, is bringing mission awareness to many dioceses and parishes in the United States each year, and seeking their help and support to continue with Evangelization and Socio-Pastoral-Educational-Health programs in our mission colonies in India.  Thank you to ‘I.G. BURTON’ also for going above and beyond to support our missionary needs.       

Fr. Jones Kukatla

Holocaust survivor Anne Jaffee Will Speak at St. Jude the Apostle Church in Lewes on November 7, at 1:30 pm.  She is a longtime friend of Fr. Tom Flowers, who served on the Halina Wind Preston Holocaust Education Committee.  Anne will share the story of her harrowing experiences with the dark evil of Nazism. Given last year’s synagogue attack in Pittsburgh and increasing acts of hatred for Jewish people in the U.S. and Europe, Fr. Tom feels it is important to provide an opportunity for people of all ages to meet face to face with a victim of the most perverse form of antisemitism.

USCCB President and Migration Chair Urge Against Further Reduction in Refugee Resettlement as Contrary to American Values

WASHINGTON, D.C. —Administration officials will reportedly recommend to President Trump that the number of refugee admissions for the coming year will be fewer than 30,000 refugees, already an historic low. Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo, Archbishop of Galveston-Houston and President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), and Bishop Joe S. Vásquez, Chair of USCCB Committee on Migration, issued the following statement:

“Further reductions in the number of refugees allowed to seek freedom in the United States would be wholly counter to our values as a nation of immigrants. America welcomes refugees; that is who we are, that is what we do. Such reductions would undermine America’s leadership role as a global champion and protector of religious freedom and human rights. Beginning with European refugees in the aftermath of World War I, the Catholic Church in the United States has more than a century of experience resettling vulnerable populations to a safer life and one in which they have contributed to the greatness of America. The 3.4 million refugees that America has welcomed since 1975 have paid billions of dollars in taxes, founded companies, earned citizenship, and bought homes at notably high rates.
