Dear parishioners,

       As you know, we are in the process of conducting the 2006 Bishop’s Annual Appeal.  If you have not yet had the opportunity to participate, please do so at your earliest convenience.  This is a great way to help both the diocese of Columbus and St. Mary’s, for once we exceed our goal, the excess will be returned in full to our parish.

       Many people have been asking, but as of this writing (Wednesday) I still do not know where my next assignment will be, nor do I know who is coming to St. Mary’s.  Perhaps the Lord is trying to teach us to be patient!  Please continue to pray that the best decisions will be made for everyone involved.  I will keep you posted…

       Please know that all of you and your families are in my prayers.  May God bless you!

Sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Hammond


Why put a crown on Mary's head?

The queen symbol was attributed to Mary because she is a perfect follower of Christ, who is the absolute 'crown' of creation. As the Order of Crowning states:

She is the Mother of the Son of God, who is the messianic King. Mary is the Mother of Christ, the Word incarnate. ... "He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David; and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end." [Luke 1:32-33] ... Elizabeth greeted the Blessed Virgin, pregnant with Jesus, as "the Mother of my Lord." [Luke 1:41-43]

She is the perfect follower of Christ. The maid of Nazareth consented to God's plan; she journeyed on the pilgrimage of faith; she listened to God's word and kept it in her heart; she remained steadfastly in close union with her Son, all the way to the foot of the cross; she persevered in prayer with the Church. Thus in an eminent way she won the "crown of righteousness," [See 2 Timothy 4:8] the "crown of life," [See James 1:12; Revelation 2:10] the "crown of glory" [See 1 Peter 5:4] that is promised to those who follow Christ. The Marian Library/International Marian Research Institute, Dayton, Ohio
