From the Desk of the Parochial Administrator
This weekend, we celebrate the great feast of Pentecost. May we always remember that the Holy Spirit is our Helper and Guide.
At the 11:00 a.m. Mass this weekend, we will celebrate the Sacraments of Christian Initiation for Kelli Medina. Kelli is to be baptized, confirmed and receive her First Holy Communion. We welcome Kelli to the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic church and to our parish family. This is a great way to observe the end of the Easter season.
I finally talked Fr. Kevin into taking some time off. He’ll be away for some days of rest and relaxation. He was making me look bad by not taking any vacation! Let’s pray for him, that he enjoys his much deserved break.
We are making progress on our Catholic Stewardship Appeal goal. Thus far, 427 households have contributed $91,000 or 85% of our goal. If you have made a contribution, thank you! If not, please consider lending you support to this worthy effort.
Rita Frohna is preparing to retire from her work in the Christian Formation Office. She has served the parish well for two decades, and we wish her all the very best in retirement. Her last official day is at the end of the month. May God Bless you, Rita!
Next weekend, we will offer information at all the Masses regarding a potential Capital Campaign in the months to come. The planning process is in its infancy, and there are a number of official steps that must happen before we could hope to launch the effort. However, it is good to begin the conversation now and seek parishioner input. Your response will help shape any future campaign. Thank you for your openness to this important initiative. I am excited about the future of our parish.
On Monday, Memorial Day, Mass will be at 8:30 a.m.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
-Fr. Aaron Esch
