 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!

Grace and peace be with you!

Fr. Terry Staples

A Message from Our Pastor for The Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, June 26, 2022               

In this week’s Gospel (Luke 9:51-62), Jesus is “firmly resolved to proceed toward Jerusalem.” He knows exactly what awaits Him there: abuse,
humiliation, suffering and death; yet, forward He goes, carried only by courage and love. Along the way, He wanted to stop in a Samaritan town, but He was not welcomed. How did He respond to this rejection? The disciples, James and John, wanted to call down fire from heaven to destroy those
Samaritans; they were soundly reprimanded by our Lord. How did Jesus respond? He put His hands to the plow and continued toward Jerusalem, carried by courage and love, to give His life as a sacrificial offering for all peoples—yes, even for those Samaritans who rejected Him. In a word, Jesus
responded with silence and love: love not in word, but in deed and truth.
Unfortunately, on occasion we have all responded to Jesus’ invitation to visit us as did the Samaritans. We have all, at times, refused to allow
