From The Desk of the Parochial Administrator
Hopefully, you’ve had a chance to begin reading Matthew Kelly’s book, The Four Signs of the Dynamic Catholic. We were blessed to be able to make this book available free of charge, thanks to the generosity of a donor. If you didn’t receive a copy of the book and you would like one, there are a few still available. You are welcome to stop by the Parish Office and pick one up.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. We cannot let the month pass without making mention of it. From the Archdiocese of Milwaukee:
It is every adult’s moral responsibility to protect possible victims by reporting the suspected abuse or neglect to the responsible authorities. Sexual abuse of minors is a pervasive societal problem, and only concerted and sustained efforts by all adults in every segment of society can help to protect children and youth. To report suspected abuse of a minor, call your local authorities or Child Protective Services.
In last weekend’s bulletin, I included a letter to the parish regarding the necessity of a capital campaign this coming fall. The campaign will address the payment of our mortgage, as well as take care of some much-needed building repairs. A copy of the letter can be found on the parish website or in the information rack in the church lobby. By the end of May, we hope to have more information available for you and, at that time, solicit your feedback. Please pray for wisdom and guidance!
Last weekend, we were honored to host His Excellency, the Most Reverend Jerome E. Listecki, Archbishop of Milwaukee. He came on Sunday afternoon to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation on sixty-five youth. It was a beautiful celebration. Congratulations to our Confirmandi and their families!
Please continue to pray for all those receiving the Sacraments during this Easter season.
This weekend, I am away for a few days to visit friends of mine, who live in Bermuda. If I don’t get lost in the Bermuda Triangle, I’ll be back in the office on Tuesday morning. You will be remembered in my Mass this weekend.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
-Fr. Aaron Esch
