Pope Francis wishes Rome's Jewish Community a happy Pesach

Pope Francis has written to the Chief Rabbi of Rome to wish the Eternal City’s Jewish community – and by extension the global community – a happy Pesach, or Passover. A telegram signed by Pope Francis and addressed to Riccardo Di Segni reads:
“As the great feast of Passover approaches I would like to extend my most cordial greetings of peace to you and all the Jewish Community of Rome. The memory of the liberation from oppression by the strong arm of the Lord inspires thoughts of mercy, reconciliation and fraternal closeness to all those who suffer under the weight of new [forms of ] slavery. Turning our thoughts to Jerusalem, which I will have the joy of visiting in the near future, I ask you to accompany me with your prayers while I assure you of my thoughts and invoke abundant blessings”.

Passover 2014 begins at sundown on Monday, April 14th. It lasts 8 full days and commemorates the Exodus of the ancient Israelites from their slavery in Egypt.

Message from the Pastor

Hello and Welcome!

People encounter God in different ways but always in relationship!  At St. John Brebeuf Parish, you will encounter Christ through a community that gathers daily and Sunday for Mass, who work for justice and who live a life for others by giving their time and talent and treasures for the common good.

You’ll discover that there is an ongoing role for you in the ways of faith; a way for you to share the blessings that you received from God.  Through prayer, study and meeting thoughtful, caring people you’ll discover that the message of the gospel didn’t become irrelevant. 

Please join us!  God is calling all of us to a deeper understanding of what life’s all about, faith, family and sacrificial service.
