 Our Parish

Dear Parishioners,

Greetings from Orange, Virginia, home of our lovely Catholic Church, St. Isidore the Farmer. Here, we live as a community of faith inspiring and helping each other to draw ever closer to our Lord and Savior. As disciples of our Lord Jesus, we are united as brothers and sisters in the family of God and we joyfully embrace all that our Lord Jesus mercifully revealed to the world through His Apostles and through the Holy Catholic Church which He founded to be our mother and our infallible teacher in matters of faith and morals (cf. Mt 16:13-20, 18:15-18; 28:16-20; Lk 10:16, 22:31-32; Jn 20:21-23; 1 Tim 3:15; Eph 4:1-16).

Here, we faithfully and prayerfully celebrate the Sacraments and especially the Liturgy of the Eucharist with all due reverence and care. If you are ever in Orange, you are most welcome to join us for Mass, or Confession. If you need assistance, or if you would just like to talk to someone about matters of faith or about your life struggles, I would be happy to assist you. I do not pretend to have all the answers, but I do know the One who does!

Your servant in Christ,


Fr. Terry Staples

Pastor

What kind of fire is Jesus referring to? Two things come to mind: fire symbolizes the transforming power of the Holy Spirit and it also symbolizes God’s love, scripture says, “God is a consuming fire.” The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us about the symbolism of fire: ... Continue reading by clicking here.
