Father John Collins of the Paulist Fathers will speak each evening on the theme of events in our lives in which we experience God. Father Thomas says Father Collins is the best mission preacher he has ever heard, and he asks that all organizations, committees and clubs clear those dates so that their members are able to come to the mission talks.

 

JULY PLANNING SESSIONS

On July 13, 20 and 27, at 10:00 a.m. all interested parishioners are invited to participate in a parish self study authored by the diocese. We will take the results of our study to a meeting with our fellow deanery parishes (St. Mary Groveport, St. Ladislas, Corpus Christi) to propose ideas to the diocese about how these parishes can best serve the people of our area.

 

CORPUS CHRISTI SUNDAY

At 12:30 on May 25th, there will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament until 3:00.  Exposition will close at 3:00 with Benediction.  There are three First Masses of the newly ordained priests on that day.  Please remember the new priests in your prayers, and pray for all the travelers coming and going to their celebrations.

NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

 

HAVE WE HEARD FROM YOU YET?

Our campaign in behalf of tuition assistance and the restoration of our historic buildings has surpassed $158,000 in pledges toward our goal of $450,000 over three years.  Any pledges now will be returned 100% to meet our two main goals here.  Pledge cards are in the pews and can be filled out and deposited in the collection or in the box at the main door of church.

 

 

CATHOLIC CEMETERIES NEWS

Catholic Cemetery offices will be open on Memorial Day from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Also, Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. at St. Joseph, Mt. Calvary, and Holy Cross, and at 1:00 p.m. at Resurrection cemetery.

 

CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU

Janet Dawson has become the new president of our School Advisory Board; Jennifer Smallwood has become vice president; and Tina Nierman secretary.  Thanks to them and to all who serve on the board.  Thanks too to Tom Martello and Brian Collins, the outgoing officers, and Julie Graham-Price, an outgoing member.

 

WELCOME

The recent School Advisory Board elections were so dramatically close that Father Thomas asked board members to let him use a little pastor prerogative to seat all three nominees.  The board agreed and we welcome Jennifer Hadden, Erin Howell, and Nicole Robinson to the board.

 

FINAL SCHOOL MASSES

All are welcome at the final masses of the school year on TUESDAY, MAY 27TH, AND TUESDAY, JUNE 3RD.  Both masses are at 9:45 a.m. The June 3rd mass is the baccalaureate mass.

 

CATHOLIC HOME MISSIONS APPEAL

The 2008 Catholic Home Missions Appeal is scheduled for the weekend of May 31 and June 1, 2008.  Catholics across the United States will have the opportunity to support the work of missions here in the United States. Many U.S. dioceses cannot provide basic pastoral ministries for their people without grants from the Bishops’ Committee on the Home Missions.  Hundreds of poor parishes and small missions in remote areas across our country depend on the Catholic Home Missions Appeal to keep their doors open. Please use your special envelopes designated for Home Missions and drop in the regular collection basket.
