Father John Collins of the Paulist Fathers will speak each evening on the theme of events in our lives in which we experience God.

DIOCESAN UPDATE RE: ELECTRONIC TRANSFER+-
The Catholic Diocese of Columbus is in the process of converting to a new computer software program that manages all gifts made to the Bishop's Annual Appeal, as well as our Bells of Saint Mary's Legacy Campaign. Due to the conversion, there has been a delay in processing both electronic fund transfers and payment reminder statements. Every effort is being made to ensure the accuracy of your gift. We apologize for any inconvenience. The Electronic Fund Transfers (EFT) for the month of July will be scheduled for the 5th and/or the 20th of the month. The payment reminder statements will deliver no later than July 11th. Any questions or concerns, please contact the parish office at 614-445-9668. Thank you for your continued support to our parish family.
A THANK YOU NOTE FROM FATHER EDWIN
Dear Generous and Loving People in the Parish of St. Mary’s,
Sadness always creeps into my heart every time I go. But I guess I have to learn to live as a constant paradox to the rest of humankind. “Ours is the pain of constantly pitching our tent and folding it up again, of befriending strangers and bidding them goodbye, of loving the world but never truly being satisfied with it, of pouring our heart and soul into a project others have begun and still others will finish”.
In such a case, I believe that we need to make the most of occasions when we gather by the roadside to break bread together and compare directions. “Joy must be discovered in the going as we never really arrive, not even in a lifetime”.
For your warm hospitality and friendship to me-a stranger to this beautiful and peaceful place; for your generosity to the poor and the needy in our diocese; and for your selfless love -- I thank God for you, and when I pray for you -- I pray with joy!
With gratitude and prayers,
Rev. Fr. Edwin Laude
