A Greeting From Our Pastor

Dear Parishioners and Visitors,

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

Lent at St Isidore The Farmer

5th Sunday of Lent Stewardship Reflection

”Jesus said to her, ‘Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?” JOHN 11:40 Many of us say that we believe in God. We attend Sunday Mass and participate in parish events. But when life gets hard and the pressure is on, when things aren’t going our way, do we really believe? Do we really put our trust in the Lord? When we live a life of gratitude, recognizing all that we  have been given, we really do see that God is providing for our needs. Living a grateful and generous life allows us to see God’s active presence in our daily  lives and we become “partakers of the divine nature
