From the Pastor's Desk


     By the time you will read this former St. Mary graduate, P. J. Shelton, S. J. will be ordained to the office of Deacon in Boston. The Reverend Deacon Shelton will be ordained a priest in June of 2014. I am reminded of a prayer from grade school:  God grant unto Thy Church saintly priests and fervent religious.  


     If you would like to send a card to the new deacon, please drop it off at the parish office and a bundle of cards will be sent.  I'm sure that a far greater bundle of cards will go forth in June!  


     The next meeting of the Sesquicentennial committee will be held in church on Oct. 17th at 7:00 p.m.  Bring a generous spirit and your ideas.  This is only the second meeting and minutes will be passed out regarding what was brought up at the last meeting.  

     Last week I enjoyed a rare moment, few like it, I might add: a party for one who became a citizen of the USA.  I was invited on Tuesday to the home of Isabelle Billet, a parishioner and member of our 11:30 a.m. choir, who took her oath with a crowd of about 55 people and joined the great melting pot of this great country. There are two special moments that you might get the chance to witness:  a conversion to the Catholic Faith and the citizenship ceremony for one who has come to our shores.  No matter what, I love this country.  I'm sentimental for the flag, the 4th of July, patriotic songs, taps at the burial of a member of the armed services, and so on.  


     We are rich my friends, blessed and lucky, too:  We are Catholic and American.  God bless everyone else as well - I love all God's children - but there are certain gifts and graces that we share in light of history and in the gift of grace.  Congratulations, Isabelle! May many more blessings come to you in time and in eternity.  


The Lord be with you!

Act of Charity for Life during Respect Life Month

Please help raise awareness and increase prayer efforts this Respect Life month by grabbing a baby bottle after Mass. Filling it with your loose change, cash or check will directly support the free, life-saving programs offered at the six area Pregnancy Decision Health Centers. The bottles will be collected the weekend of October 26th-27th. The Bottle Program is a great way to get the entire family involved. Thank you for your participation.
