Thoughts from Bishop Doyle

A Shepherd on our Darkest Hills
God knows the brokenness of heart and body and mind. Jesus knows our suffering and comes as our
shepherd. Guardian of our souls, the watcher in the night, he contends for us. We are being
shepherded by no one less than the great shepherd of the cross; through every kind of suffering
imaginable. Even now and in this present hour.
Do you wonder what we can do, and how we can do it,
We take up the work of shepherding together.
We shepherd together our families and our friends.
We shepherd our neighbors.
We shepherd our co-workers, school friends, and loved ones.
We shepherd, as Christ, in this time.
-Bishop C. Andrew Doyle

Thoughts about Sacchia Gonzalez…

It has been 2 years since Sacchia passed away on Thursday, April 18, 2019, after
a courageous fight with cancer. She was 42 years old. Her parents are Luis and Judith
Gonzalez. Sacchia was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico and into a culture that instilled an
early love of music and dance that shaped her life for decades to follow.
Sacchia found her passion in dance and her calling in helping others through
fitness. She was known for her contagious spirit, living life through experiences, meeting
new friends, and making a difference in the lives of others. She left a hole in this world
that will never be filled. She touched many lives and created lasting memories within the
St. Christopher’s family.
