Do not forsake the work of your hands!



The drought in East Africa, complicated by political instability in Somalia, has led to desperate conditions for millions of people.  Your Church is responding through Catholic Relief Services (CRS) that has worked in the region for decades.  Many CRS projects that you have supported over the years have made communities better able to withstand this drought.  Many others are still suffering, including Somalis who live beyond the reach of humanitarian aid and are fleeing to neighboring countries seeking help.  CRS is responding to their needs.  Please show your solidarity in the following ways:

·    Please pray for the people of East Africa.

·    Donate to the East Africa Emergency Fund; checks payable to Catholic Relief Services can be sent to the Office for Social Concerns, 197 East Gay St., Columbus, OH 43215 – write “East African Fund” in the memo section

·    Learn more:  contact the diocesan CRS director at 614-241-2540 or; and visit: for continuous updates on our response. of MARRIAGE

As I have been reflecting upon the fact that my tenure as Administrator pro-tem of St. Mary Church is coming to an end, I am filled with both joy and sorrow.  My joy is primarily based in the many relationships I have enjoyed and hope to continue into the future.  My sorrow is simply the fact that my tenure is coming to an end.  As I mentioned in my homily last week, my priesthood has been so powerfully enriched by the many individuals and families in the parish who live their faith in such a beautiful way.  Thank you to everyone who has been so kind in receiving me into this wonderful community!


Another cause of my joy is the knowledge that I had a part in hiring Mrs. Luna Alsharaiha, principal of St. Mary School, and that Fr. Don Franks will be coming to serve as pastor of St. Mary Church.  I leave with confidence that the whole community will be truly blessed for many years into the future under their leadership.


I ask that you might keep me in your prayers.  I will continue to pray for you, thanking God and asking our Blessed Mother to protect you and obtain for each of you the grace to remain open to God’s loving will in your lives.



Fr. Shawn Corcoran
