From the Pastor’s Desk….…


In your charity please pray for the souls of Rita Rogers, mother of Father Patrick Rogers and Wes Kingery who died last Sunday.  His funeral was at St. Leo's on Friday morning.  He had the grace of 60 years of marriage and a few days past that! May they rest in peace.  


The Marian Concert was a great success last Sunday evening at St. Leo.  A very good crowd came and heard several choirs as well as meditations by Father Klee.  Thanks to the choirs form St. Mary and all the hard work they did to prepare this tribute to Our Lady.  


Last Sunday was the big celebration of the Sesquicentennial of St. Joseph Church in Plain City.  I was pastor there from 1991 to 1997.  I had two small country churches and lived across the street from Der Dutchman.  So 2014 was St. Joseph's Sesquicentennial and now we are about to do it here with a year-long celebration.  Nice that it is back to back celebrations of a hundred and fifty years, one year apart and "keeping it in the family" with Joseph and Mary.  


On Monday there will be a Solemn High Requiem Mass for All Souls Day at 10:00 a.m. at St. Mary.  Come see the ancient liturgy of the church and pray for the faithful departed.  See you in the front right row!


The Lord be with you!


Father Kevin F. Lutz


From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .


Your pastor is losing his hearing and his sight.  He stepped (accidentally, so I'm told) on my tail, causing me to sing the famous Catalinian aria, "Getteth Off My Tail, Thou Priest!"  The opening line is three octaves above a first soprano. He heard it - and maybe some of you did, too.   I'm always brandishing my glorious tail, but he was looking at his coffee cup, and thus he affronted me.  I'm better now.  Good to know I can still hit the high notes.  


The weather is changing.  Be kind to the little creatures that live outside.  I'm noble enough to even ask you to be mindful of the birds.  Don't give any coffee beans to the squirrels; they twitch enough already.  Creeps me out!  While you're out buying seed for the birds, change the battery in your smoke alarm, and thank me later.  


One last detail, Father forgot to mention above that Tuesday, November 4th is voting day. DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!!


Ever solicitous and forgiving,


Raphael the Cat
