San Lorenzo Ruiz Invitation

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

The peace of Our Lord be with you and your family!

I, Fr. Cyriac C. Mattathilanickal MS, on behalf of the Filipino Apostolate of the Archdiocese of Boston, have the honor of inviting all of you to celebrate the Feast of the patron saint of the Filipino Apostolate, San Lorenzo Ruiz.  In a time when family values are being challenged in the courts throughout the world, what a splendid opportunity it is to celebrate the feast of San Lorenzo Ruiz.  He was martyred standing strong for family values and our Catholic faith.  "Because I am a Christian, and I shall die for God, and for him I will give many thousands of lives if I had them", was San Lorenzo's own words when he was being offered life in exchange for renouncing his faith.
We look forward to seeing you and your families and friends in the celebration of the Holy Mass that highlights families and our Filipino Catholic faith to be held on Sunday, September 7, 2014, 1PM at the Holy Name Church, 1689 Centre St, West Roxbury, MA 02132.

Even as we celebrate families and our faith, we are also aware of numerous Filipino families who suffer without their basic needs being met, and of the myriads of needs of the whole church and those who serve her.
In honor of San Lorenzo Ruiz, you may make a donation to the Filipino Apostolate on-line through our website here:

or by mail.  Please make the check payable to the Filipino Apostolate and mail to the address:

I am grateful for your attention and your generosity.
Sincerely Yours in Our Lord,

Rev. Fr. Cyriac C. Mattathilanickal, MS
Chaplain, Filipino Apostolate of Boston
