Pastor Away: I’ll be taking some time off starting this Friday, the 12th. Fr. Matt should be able to take care of your spiritual needs while I am “out of the office.”
Change in Mass Location: On Monday, August 5th, we will begin the process of removing the old pews and carpet from the church and installing the new. During this time, the Sunday and Holy Day Masses will be celebrated in the school gymnasium, the daily Masses will be in the Gardiner Social Hall, and Eucharistic Adoration will take place in the Sapia Conference Room in the Activities Center. Saturday confessions will be in the gym; Thursday confessions will be in the Activities Center. We will make every effort to minimize the inconvenience, but some patience will be required. As the sisters used to tell us when I was in grade school, “Offer it up.”
2012-2013 Financial Reports and 2013-14 Parish Budgets: Copies of the 2013-14 Parish Budget and of the final Financial Report for the fiscal year which ended June 30, 2013 will be in the Gathering Space. Please feel free to take one home if you wish.
Missionary Co-op: Father Raphael Mensah of the Diocese of Sekondo-Takoradi, Ghana, Africa will preach for the annual Mission Co-op collection at all Masses here on July 13th and 14th. Please be welcoming and generous to him. Envelopes for the missionary co-op can be found in the Gathering Space, or in the July envelope packet.
