What a picture!  You know what they say about a picture being a 1000 words.  This speaks volumes and is a major part of what Catholic Education is all about.  The beauty of Christ living within each of us.  Our lives are empty without Him and abound in goodness when we allow Jesus to live in our hearts.  Oh, the simple love and understanding of a child -- A gift we all need to hold on to forever.

The school lobby has been transformed with the altar, the stained glass windows and the statues that are all a gift from the Jubilee Museum.

 

In the lobby of the church hangs a cross and from it hangs rosaries.  They are there for your use and keeping, but not for Christmas shopping.  These are made available through the kindness of several rosary makers and are put there for your convenience.

 

Please pray for Sister Barbara Holtzinger.  On Thursday she was taken to Grant Hospital with heart pains.  Sister is a regular attendee at the 4:00 p.m. Mass.  I anointed her in the ER. 

 

The Gala was certainly an outstanding event.  A huge crowd, great enthusiasm, generous donors, and many hard workers.  A special thanks to Melissa Kirkwood and Vanessa Fischer who organized this fantastic and more-than memorable event.  Many guests were dressed in period costumes reflecting our 150 year history.  People stayed long and had a great time. I thought that they were going to need to get out the garden hose to make people go home.  

 

The Lord be with you!

Father Kevin Lutz

 

************************************************************** From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .

 

I have been asked to make a Public Service Announcement -- and I'm not very happy about it -- for I believe it to be a lie.  A high percentage of falls of people over 60 involve tripping over pets.  Be careful, especially on staircases.  (I suppose Father is making me print this because I was walking at his side and I merely got in front of him to lead him to my dish.  I apparently shifted lanes too soon. As slow as he moves I thought I would not be in his way.  But gravity seemed to be ushering him a little faster than I anticipated.)  It's a good idea on staircases to use handrails, turn on the lights, and make sure that your pet who deigns to let you live with him is not in blessed repose on the stairs. 

 

I saw the shameless (and shapeless) lying groundhog on TV.  What a hideous thing!  I was shocked to see Puxatawney Phil nip at his handler's ear.  Does he not know that the privilege of biting is reserved to cats?

Pietΰ offers powerful variations of traditional Lamentation scenes, where mourners gather around the body of Christ, just taken down from the Cross. The Sacred Art Pilgrim Collection is the labor of love of collector John Kohan. He describes his collection as a “record of one pilgrim’s progress in rediscovering the majesty, meaning, and mystery of sacred art…”  A suggested donation of $10 per person is greatly appreciated.
