HURRICANE LAURA AND CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES DISASTER FUND
Our parish is sending $1000 to assist in the recovery from the devastating impact of Hurricane Laura and the California wildfires to the
US Conference of Catholic Bishops Emergency Disaster Fund .
These funds, from the good people of Resurrection, will help answer immediate needs for food, water, shelter, or medical care and reconstruction.
Thank you for your kindness.
The apostle Paul, in the second reading of today’s mass, reminds us to extend compassion and consolation lovingly and to show God’s love to others in a tangible and personal way.
“Your attitude must be Christ’s.”

The parable of the two sons is about a father who tells his first son to go work in the vineyard. ... The first son, who does not want to work on the vineyard but winds up helping, represents the people who were non-believers that were sent a message by John the Baptist to believe in God.

Please use caution with emails from an unfamiliar email address.
Some Parishioners and Staff recently reported receiving an "urgent" email that appeared to be from Monsignor Dwyer with a statement similar to "I Need Assistance From You, Email Me As Soon As You Get This Message". This is a typical "phishing" email. Phishing emails are used by cyber criminals to attempt to trick individuals by creating and sending fake emails that appear to be from an authentic source. Such emails are usually poorly written and designed to make you feel a sense of urgency. If you engage with the sender, they may ask you to confirm personal information, open a malicious attachment that infects your computer, or purchase gift cards or perform other financial transactions on their behalf. Do not reply or click any links if you have reason to suspect the email is not legitimate.
Even if you think there’s a possibility that an email from Resurrection is genuine, you should
Contact the Rectory
directly and ask to confirm – do not use any communication method provided in the email.
