From the Pastors Desk .
Happy New Year! Happy Sesquicentennial! Happy Birthday (if today is your birthday). God's blessings be with you at this new and exceptional beginning. I pray that it will be a happy year with many grace-filled events and much gratitude to God for the last 150 years.
In your charity please pray for the soul of Ruth Naegle, who turned 100 during 2014, whose funeral was last Monday. Holy Rosary and St. Mary were the places of her spiritual nourishment. What a rare soul. May she rest in peace. Her long life lasted for two thirds of St. Mary's existence one hundred of our one hundred and fifty years!
Christmas went very well. Many visitors commented on the powerful experience of worshiping at St. Mary. Overheard were many comments on the enhanced decorations and the always beautiful music. Thanks to the many good souls who sang, played, decorated, served, donated flowers or in anyway contributed to the beauty of this year's celebration.
Thank you for your patience with the parking issue. Please feel free to park on the rectory front lawn until things are resolved. Watch out for the baby tree near the fence. When everything is finished, it will be beautiful and practical.
The Lord be with you!

Happy Year of your Sesquicentennial! Happy Year of the Cat! (Every year is the Year of the Cat, in case you hadn't noticed) I'm happy for your anniversary.
Thanks for the cards and the gifts of food and catnip. My bowl runneth over.
My book is being edited for printing.
In my Introduction I mentioned that there are only 200 people in the
world. They are all listed in the book. You must buy it to see if
you are listed. If you are not, then you don't exist and I have nothing
further to say to you. Well, all my earthly needs have been met and I
have decided to donate all the money to
The bulletin must go out early. I am writing

NEWS WORTHY NOTES
Thank you to everyone that purchased gifts and gift cards for our 2014 adopt-a-family campaign. It was a great success and we brought the spirit of Christmas to 15 families and 5 of our homebound parishioners.
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.
