From the Pastor’s Desk….…


In your charity please pray for the following who have died.  Jackie Hagwood (a dear friend of Ann Anderson, parish secretary). I anointed Jackie in the intensive care unit of OSU. His funeral was Saturday evening; Lee Schirtzinger, his funeral was held Friday at St. Leo; also remember Floyd Balling one of the legendary cooks at Holy Family Soup Kitchen.  His funeral was Friday at Mother of Sorrows Chapel.  May they rest in peace.


The Bishop's Annual Appeal (which seems to rotate every third weekend with Christmas and Easter on the other two) is now upon us.  Our parish goal is $53,637.04 which shows our support for the many worthy causes in the diocese.  More on this next week.  


Please continue to pray for those who are about to become deacons and those deacons who are about to become priests.  


May is the month of Our Lady and the Holy Rosary.  It would be nice to see many families putting up May Altars.  A simple picture or statue of Our Lady and some spring flowers are enough.  Please send a picture of your May Altar to the office for possible publication in the parish bulletin.  Pray the rosary for peace especially in these perilous times.  The feast of the Holy Rosary and Our Lady of Victory were initiated by Pope St. Pius V when the Christian forces, led by Don Juan, were successful in saving Europe from an invasion by the Turkish forces in the famous Battle of Lepanto.


The Lord be with you!


Fr. Kevin Lutz

From the Cat at 684 South Third Street:


Well, for the last week and a half I have been living with Cyclops.  I can only say this in the bulletin this week since the pastor cannot read that well yet, since he has had eye surgery.  I heard him complaining on the phone that he was seeing double.  Now what's wrong with that? --he could see me twice!  I did notice him wandering around leaning on things--I was doubly careful to keep my tail from his unsteady gait.  


Spring seems to be off to a rough start!  I've seen a few blooming flowers and a few blooming idiots (undoubtedly visitors from far off).  But the trees still seem to be in blessed repose.  I'm all for naps, but come on, trees, get with the program.  




Raphael, ready to spring into Spring!
