Again I want to draw your attention to the issue of the marked crosswalk that you would use if you were to walk from our church to the other side of Valley Circle. Well, there is a public notice there stating: “The marked crosswalk at this location is proposed to be removed as part of a traffic safety improvement.” I don’t understand how its removal would be a traffic safety improvement and since many of you use it, I want to draw the proposal to your attention. Comments are invited in three ways. You can phone: 818-774-4306, or write: Department of Transportation, West Valley District, 19040 Vanowen Street, Reseda, CA91335, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Knowing our school and church, it seems to me we would value this crosswalk and want to keep it. If you agree with me I hope you will contact the Department of Transportation. I was told that if enough people want to keep it, then it will remain.
Here’s something special to put on your calendar. Our parish school is 50 years old this year and the big celebration will be at the Saturday 5:00 PM Mass on September 20th. Dinner will follow in Monsignor Murray Hall. We are particularly interested in inviting all the alumni of the school so please spread the word. I hope it will be a great reunion for our past pupils and a joyful celebration for our present families.
My brother, Father Leslie, is visiting for a few weeks. While he taught in China for the last eight years he was able to visit us on school holidays. Now however his bishop in Ireland has given him a new appointment. With the shortage of priests in Ireland, he is tasked to help out in a number of city parishes in Limerick our home town. One of them is the parish of our childhood where we were baptized, said Mass for the first time and had the funerals of our parents – a dramatic circle of life!
Summer blessings to you all,
@ St. B's
