Happy September! By and large an agreeable month.
There's a seven hidden in there (Latin septem = 7), from
the days when the calendar was calculated differently. The months that

It's not too late to get into the RCIA program. If you are interested or know someone who is, call the office or just show up on Wednesday evening at seven in the atrium. If you are ever challenged and need a simple book that will give you quick and clear answers to questions about the hard issues (Mary, the pope, the Eucharist, the inquisition, etc.), call Ann in the office and ask for a free copy of "To Tell You The Whole Truth" by Father John Noone.
Welcome to our new
organist, Bill Antoniak. This is his first weekend
here, playing for the and Masses. His wife (an
opera singer) at times does solo work. I hope that
you will enjoy his music. Bill has a strong background in
the liturgy as well as German repertoire. He also founded and
conducts the Mendelssohn Liedertafel. If you are
interested, please go up and introduce yourself to Bill, before or after
The Lord be with you!

As you know, that tree was a friend of Msgr. Burkley.

tree actually knew a tree that knew the olive tree in

Do you have a Will? Wills do not cause death! Dont be afraid to write one. Sign it, date it and ask two people to witness it. Consult a lawyer. Otherwise some strange distant relative will auction your treasures on eBay.
Consider remembering Saint Mary in your will as well.
