A word of thanks to all those who generously
supported the second collection for the
CLERGY RETIREMENT FUND. As you share
your resources with so many worthy
charities, it means the world to me that this
week, you chose to single out the many
faithful priests who have served us.
As we watch the parish grow let us be ever
mindful of the many blessings God has
bestowed upon us. His divine favor should be
met with deepening our role as disciples. I
would ask us to consider two ministries this
year: Music and Mission Work. Since EASTER
SUNDAY, we have been building the MUSIC
MINISTRY by hiring alto, soprano, tenor and
baritones for our choir; from this group we
have engaged them as Cantors at the vigil and
11:30am Masses. We have also complimented
the music with various instruments. As this is
a ministry, I am pleased that we have had a
few parishioners volunteer to sing in the
choir. Certainly the music aspect of ministry
is best expressed by volunteer members; its
my hope that we might move towards
increasing the size of the volunteers. While
volunteers might help us bring down the costs
of music, the more important aspect will be in
their use of their voices to deepen their
commitment to discipleship in Christ. I would
ask folks to consider becoming part of this
ministry; whether a weekly commitment or
every other week commitment, your gifts can
be used to GLORIFY GOD and build up his
grace in our parish.
In April of 2013 Pope Francis embraced the
GOSPEL VALUES of Jesus, and encouraged
and emboldened the church, our local church,
to become a CHURCH FOR THE POOR. How do
we do that? Certainly by supporting the
various missionary groups that solicit our
funds. We are a parish that cares for the needs
of others. We also do so by bringing canned
goods and food stuff to church for the FOOD
PANTRY. It would be nice if every parishioner
did this every week. Imagine how pleased God
would be! At Advent we take tags from the
Jesse (Giving) Tree and get gifts for those who
live in poverty. In July, our teens went to
Cairo NY to help fix house of the poor, and in
April they will spend their school vacation in
Staten Island NY, again helping those in need.
In 3 weeks we will be embarking upon the
parish’s first MISSION TRIP to a town in
Western Massachusetts. Will Rein and I are
working on these projects as well as others
which will be more local. In the coming weeks
and months we will share this information.
Altar Linens: Volunteer Opportunity
Would you like to be involved in keeping the altar
beautiful— from the comfort of your own home?
We are seeking additional volunteers to help with the
special task of laundering and pressing the altar
linens. Volunteers in this role pick up the used altar
linens from the rectory on their designated Monday, wash and press them,
then return them by the end of the week. If you are available to assist on
a monthly or on an alternate/fill-in basis, please contact the rectory.
Training will be provided.
DO YOU LOVE TO SEW?
We are looking for assistance in sewing baptismal bibs making altar cloth repairs
& have opportunities for special projects.

Dear Father Carmichael, August 21, 2014
The members of the Prayer Shawl Ministry are pleased
to advise you that the total number of shawls completed

I think this is a great achievement for our group of 14 members.
