Dear Friends,

Two Centennial Celebration Notes:

Join us next Sunday, May 22 at 2pm in church for our Centennial Concert. Mary Pentecost, our Director of Music has curated a great afternoon of both sacred and classical music (along with a few surprises!) performed by not members of our parish Music Ministry, but also professional singers and musicians. Come and enjoy a relaxing and prayerful Sunday afternoon in church and let the Lord touch your heart through beautiful music. Afterwards, there’ll be a reception in the school cafeteria to enjoy some appetizers and fellowship.  I hope you’ll join us.

Save the date: Saturday, June 18 at 5pm. Archbishop Rozanski will be with us to celebrate Mass and join us for a ‘backyard BBQ’ afterwards. Countless Sacraments and prayers have been celebrated and offered in our church over the last 100 years. Before all else, the church, and the Eucharistic Table, is not only the visible sign of our unity, but of our Union, our Communion with Jesus Christ: without Him, and without the Eucharist we would be incomplete. So, the Archbishop is coming to celebrate with us, and our 100-year heritage!

Finally, let’s hold in prayer all those who will graduating or otherwise turning a new page in their life this spring: our children graduating from any level of schooling; young people transitioning to their job and independence; parents getting ready to be empty-nesters; couples preparing for summer and fall weddings; expectant mothers. Spring and early summer are always full of so much hope and promise. May our level of gratitude and trust rise in the same way.

Know that you are loved dearly and prayed for daily.

Fr. Craig Holway, Pastor
