Fr. Michael Barota celebrates Holy Mass in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chaldean Catholic Church Orangevale, CA



After celebrating the Holy Mass On Sunday April 03, 2011 at Saint Matthew Catholic Church in Ceres-CA, Fr. Michael Barota the pastor of Saint Matthew church, visited Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chaldean Catholic Church in Orangevale, CA. Fr. Barota celebrated the Holy Mass for the first time at this parish. Saint Matthew Church deacons, choir, and several members accompanied him. Fr. Barota read the Gospel in Aramaic, English, and Arabic languages. He also gave an inspiring homily as he made use of all these three languages in order to deliver the Words of the Lord to all parishioners. After the Holy Mass celebration concluded, we all went to the church hall to share a light meal together.

Special thanks and gratitude are due to Mr. Tom Simon and everyone else at this parish for their warm reception for Fr. Michael Barota and those accompanying him. May our Lord Christ and our Mother Mary, The Lady of Perpetual Help, bless this parish and its congregation.
