Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind... Love your neighbor as yourself.
Matthew 22:37, 39
Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Soirit, and teaching them to obey everthing I have commanded you.
We believe in Christianity, as taught by the Roman Catholic Church. The Eucharistic celebration is the source and summit of our faith. Catholic belief is succinctly expressed in our profession of faith or credo called the Nicene Creed.
"Our profession of faith begins with God, for God is the First and the Last, the beginning and the end of everything. The Credo begins with God the Father, for the Father is the first divine person of the Most Holy Trinity; our Creed begins with the creation of heaven and earth, for creation is the beginning and the foundation of all God's works."
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Father Brian recently received this letter from Bishop Daly:
Dear Father Sattler,
It is my duty as diocesan bishop and shepherd of the Diocese of Spokane to provide for the pastoral care of God’s holy people through the appointment of priests, who share with me in the grace of the Sacrament of Holy Orders.
I am pleased to exercise this responsibility by moving you from the role as Administrator into the role of pastor of St Joseph Parish in Colbert, for a term of 6 years, effective July 1, 2016. Though it is not anticipated, the needs of the diocese may warrant you being reassigned prior to the expiration of this term.
As you take up this service, I pray that in and through this ministry you will grow in priestly holiness, sharing the joy and peace of the Risen Christ, His first gift to His apostles. I would also ask that you take a personal and special interest in promoting and praying for vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life in our Diocese.
With my prayer for God’s blessing upon your dedicated priestly service, and upon the people to whom He has called you to minister, I am
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Thomas A Daly
Bishop of Spokane
