Welcome Message from the Pastor

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Greetings, in the name of Jesus Christ, the one, who is the way, the truth and life for all creation. I am pleased to offer you my heartfelt greetings and welcome, on behalf of the parish community of St. Mary’s of Redford. On the Solemnity of All Saints, 2015, I began my service to the parish as pastor, taking my place in a long line of men and women who have served this community since 1843. One of the great things about our Church and our parish, is that the past, the present, and the future, in a sort of democratization of time, stand shoulder to shoulder bearing witness to the simple and enduring truth, that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) Whether you are new to the parish, steeped in her storied history, or anticipating a new chapter yet to come, we stand together in faith, hope and love. St. Mary’s of Redford and her parishioners, bid you a hearty welcome, a welcome home, for the first time and once again. Come join us to pray, to plan and to become. Together we will continue to build a house, where in Jesus, in his Most Sacred Heart, all are welcome and all can find a home.

In Christ, your pastor for you, and your brother, with you,

Fr. Gerard Battersby
