From the Pastor’s Desk….…


I am in Detroit as I send you this message staying with the seminarians. The first night here I visited Bishop Reese and as we were leaving there was a drive-by by shooting outside and armed guards walked us to our car. Life is good in Columbus. I've spent a couple of days in prayer and relaxing a little bit.


Today I went to an antique store to do a little shopping for the museum. The owner was very kind and gave me a cross from MGM Studios. It was used in the movie The Singing Nun with Debbie Reynolds.


Before I forget I want to thank everyone for making the 88th homecoming such a great success. The staff and volunteers worked long and difficult hours and made a wonderful event happen very well.


St Mary school is getting ready to open up. I am working as hard as I can,  as is the staff, to make it an excellent year and a great blessing for the boys and girls who attend at Mary.


I have now completed a full year at St Mary and I'm no longer a novice. It really has been a great year and I'm very grateful that you have made me feel so welcome. May God's blessing be with all of us as we seek to follow Christ and to serve one another and especially the poor.


The Lord be with you!


Fr. Kevin Lutz

I hope you had a great time. Fran and I enjoyed it very much. We were able to look out the windows and see all of you having fun. We were rather amused by your choices in food. None of you chose meow mix or the plentiful birds that were flying around, just junk food and brats and the like.  We just figured to each his own.


I would write more but I need an associate just like father. Pray for vocations. We need more priests.  Then father would have more time to play with me. See how I suffer for all of you.

A big thank you to everyone that made the 2014 festival such a big success. Special recognition goes out to Chris Davis for all her hard work as she took on the challenge of heading up this year's festival.

We would be remiss if we did not thank John LaMotte for the many years he spearheaded this event.

We have a deeper appreciation for all the work involved in making this annual event a fun-filled weekend for our St. Mary community.

Let's not forget to thank God for the amazing weather we were blessed with over those two days.

First of all, God can speak to us by giving us what spiritual writers call consolation. Through consolation, he touches the soul and allows it to be comforted and strengthened by a felt awareness of His love, His presence, His goodness, His power, and His beauty.
