Happy 99th Birthday Monsignor Murray! We will celebrate it at the Noon Mass today. A reception with a light lunch from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM will follow. All are invited.
And there is another special birthday. Our parish school is 50 this year. We will celebrate next Saturday at the 5:00 PM Mass and there will be food trucks by the pavilion afterwards so we can continue to meet and greet. I especially look forward to seeing past students, parents, teachers etc. and of course our present families. Please help get the word out to all you know especially past students.
Rabbi Stewart Vogel and members of his congregation got the usual extremely warm reception last Sunday at 5:30 Mass. This is such a positive reflection on us as a parish. He spoke on “Giving” from a Jewish perspective. Among the many points he made, he held that a loan is better than a gift because it preserves the dignity of the recipient. I agree of course. Then he pointed out that when a person’s generosity is publicized it can inspire others to give. This reminded me of what Jesus said: “When you give alms, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.” Clearly his comments got us thinking of what giving is all about. I will be speaking in the Temple this coming Friday at 8:15 PM. You are invited – children welcome. Bring your Jewish friends and let us foster our friendship and respect for one another. I look forward to hearing what I am going to say!!!
Awesome! Yes the Ministry Fair last Sunday was really awesome. It recruited 120 volunteers for a variety of ministries in our parish. That substantially surpassed expectations. I am so grateful to the leaders for bearing the heat of the day and I am delighted that so many volunteered. Thank you all. As you know, my dream is that everyone in our parish be involved in some ministry. Last Sunday edged that dream closer. God bless you all.
God bless you all,
