As we come around the bend, so to speak, in dealing with COVID, our parishes are seeing a bright light at the end of the tunnel! Now is the time to reconsider your stewardship commitment to our parishes. God has blessed us in many ways through the peaks and valleys of the past 15 months, and it’s time for us to begin anew with our work in the mission field.
Liturgical help is needed to assist Father at Mass. Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, and ushers are needed and volunteers will be greatly appreciated. Please contact Randy Garcia and me for more information on the area you are interested. What better way to serve Our Lord, than to proclaim the Word and participate in the Liturgy. Our stewardship ministries are coming back on line, and you can volunteer in many different areas of service to our church and our community.
Next, I will be reinstating the printed Bulletin starting with Father’s Day Weekend. Until we are fully open to meetings etc. I am asking that you share with me any news you think important to our parish. Please email me at
with your “blurb” no later than Monday, June 14
so I can meet the publisher’s deadline. Going forward the
deadline for all bulletin items is on a Monday no later than 12 Noon
. If you have a Mass intention request please give me a call – I have plenty of openings. This is a new beginning for us, and I am excited to be able to get the “good news” out to all of our parishioners.
Last, but certainly not least, the Missals will be back in the pews this coming weekend. If you took a Missal during COVID, please remember to bring it with you as we are short of Missals, and want to afford everyone the opportunity to follow along with the Liturgy of the day.
We are ever evolving in the opening process, and will keep you advised as more changes take place. In the meantime, this is truly a time to remember those parishioners, family members and dear friends whom we lost this past year. They will be forever etched in our hearts and remain in our prayers. We all walked our personal journey with this crises, and the Holy Spirit has given us a new gift – the gift of renewing our faith and our stewardship journey. Through prayer all things are possible.
