From the Pastor's Desk


Every death is the end of an era.  Some stand out - as did Father Schweitzer's death.  I was with him countless times and ultimately just after he went to God.  Father and I had worked on his funeral plans.  Actually he had no real plans or interest in making them.  I suggested calling hours in the soup kitchen that he had founded.  He thought that was interesting and nodded his approval.  He also asked me to preach which I did.  The sermon is printed in this week's Catholic Times on page 8 and 14.  If you do not get the Times, there is a printed copy in the back of the church.  Pray for vocations.  


This Sunday I will be conducting the services at St. Joseph Cemetery at 2:00 p.m.  Rosary, a brief meditation and Benediction are the planned events.  Hope to see you there.. November is traditionally dedicated to prayers for the souls of the Faithful Departed.  After an outside blessing I will give an impromptu tour of the graves of some of the bishops, priests and sisters who are buried near the chapel.  Pray for good weather.  


As we get ready for the great events of the Sesquicentennial, please consider donating photos, or scan them and mail them in to the parish office.  A great video with countless scenes of weddings, graduations and celebrations will be compiled.  Any artifacts from the history of the church are also needed.  Every now and then an old statue shows up, or some remnant of a forgotten building or confessional door is rediscovered in the basement or attic.  Look far and wide and see what item or photo will help tell the story of this parish.  


The Lord be with you!


Fr. Kevin F. Lutz





v  The next Sesquicentennial meeting will be @ 7:00 p.m. on Nov. 14th.

Next year the Community of Holy Rosary and St. John the Evangelist located at 648 South Ohio Ave. are planning on bringing a simple Fall Festival to our neighborhood kids who generally don't get to experience things like that. If we receive enough donated costumes, we will distribute them at our festival.

Costumes can be dropped off at the Church.



On behalf of the staff, students and the entire St. Mary family I would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to the 4-S Club for their commitment and dedication to our school.

I would like to thank everyone who attended and supported Saint Mary School at this year’s golf outing with your time, talent and treasure.

To Saint Mary parishioners: thank you too for all the support you have given our School this year. You are all amazing and it is truly an honor and a blessing to be part of this great community.  


Filled With Joy
Lord Jesus, may we come to believe in you ever more fully. May our faith in all you have done—in your miracles, healings, saving death, and glorious Resurrection—and in your full humanity and divinity ever fill us with joy.
