From the Pastor’s Desk


Next weekend I will be offering masses at Corpus Christi and St. Ladislaus and Father D'Amico will offer the same over here. Technically, I am pastor of these churches as well as St. Mary's.  I am grateful to Father Rod for his quiet but very dedicated service covering those two churches.  Over the last three decades the south end has lost four schools and one church (still used, but no longer a functioning parish).  That's a lot to lose.  I believe in the schools and the many benefits they bring.  I pray we don't lose another inch - and since I believe in miracles, I'd like to see the south rise again in its practice and spreading of the faith.  


Our 150th anniversary is coming up in 2015.  This year there have already been many meetings and considerations of plans for the ways in which to celebrate. More volunteers are needed to make it happen.  Consider offering some of your time and talent to make it a great year of spirituality, hospitality and celebration. There will be bulletin announcements and pulpit requests for your help.  Join the fun.  


Spring is here!  Keep your snow shovel and gloves at the ready.  


God's peace be with you as we continue the journey of Lent.  


The Lord be with you!


Father Kevin Lutz




From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .


I see the pastor is complaining that he's in charge of three churches.  Can you hear me playing the violin?  Does he not see that I am in charge of 12 rooms?  My daily schedule starts at six or earlier when I scream outside his door (I think his hearing is selective).  I use the most mellifluous tone to waken him, but he answers me in Latin (or some other language totally unintelligible to me) and keeps me waiting for breakfast.  Then my parish visitations begin.  I must look in to each room to see if there have been seminarians visiting. It is my job to take a nap in each suitcase and leave a few strands of fir.  They are so grateful I often hear them say, "Where is that cat?"  I am sure they want to thank me, but in my modest way, I go and hide.  The rest of the day is spent checking on noises, looking out windows, and dinner dreams about robins.  


Father Jeff Rimelspach at St. Margaret's invited me over to see his goldfish.  I may visit, but I must find a clever way to ask Father if he'll let the fish come out and play.  That bowl must be so confining.  Perhaps they might come here.  They would be welcome to swim in my water dish.  I am a certified fish life guard.  Gotta  keep up my certification.  


Keep up your Lenten duties.  I am doing mine.  Tell the fish not to come over till after Easter.

Who You Really Are
We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son.
