From the Pastor’s Desk….…


In your charity, please pray for the souls of the following who have died:  Martha Meyer, age 95 (a dear friend and a member of old St. Peter's Church).  I offered Martha's funeral at St. Anthony Church on Thursday.  Also, Wilma Rose, a World War II Veteran and a devoted soul to St. Mary's.  Her funeral was last Monday at Mother of Sorrows Chapel and Rita Zarth, whose funeral was May 16th. May they rest in peace.


On Wednesday, last, Gresso's provided a bus for Deacon Tim, the Latin Class and me to go to the cemetery for Mass and a visit to the graves of bishops, nuns and priests.  This gave us the opportunity to translate the Latin on the tombstones.  Then we had lunch at Phillip's Coney Island. Finally, we made a trip to the Museum where they looked at the Holocaust Exhibit and actually handled a very rare Altar Missal - 1501. Christopher Columbus was alive when this book was in use on the altar. 


Congratulations to our Eighth Graders who have been set loose upon the world as of last Thursday.


Good Luck and Blessings to all of our students.  Last Friday was the last day of this term.  Please be careful and aware of the increased number of children in your neighborhood during the summer.


Monday, May 25th is Memorial Day.  I will be saying the 11:00 a.m. Mass at Mount Calvary Cemetery in celebration of the lives of those who have gone before us--making our country the exceptional country that it is for us and for our children.


The Parish Offices will be closed on Monday in observance of the holiday. 


The Lord be with you!

Father Kevin F. Lutz


From the Cat at 684 South Third Street,


Once word got out that the prizes would be Kit Kat Candy Bars for those submitting a poem for this column, everyone became a Shakespeare!  So far two poems have been submitted.  


My friend of many ears, Precious Kitty Love-Love will be moving to Tartan Fields.  We are dear friends, but I look forward to the peacefulness that will now exist at 684.  I should have been a monk! 


Literally yours, (this has nothing to do with the litter box--the spelling is much different.)




                 Submission #1

                              I love the cats at 684

                             They greet me the minute I walk in the door

                             Then to my amaze

                              I could tell by their gaze

                             It was the tuna they were there for!

                                                                                               The Tuna Lady

                 Submission #2

                              Meow, I lay me down to sleep

                              I pray my bowl is full and deep

                              If I should rise before you wake

                              I will start to meow-MAKE NO MISTAKE!

To love someone who doesn’t love us… It’s not easy! Because if we know that a person doesn’t like us, then we also tend to bear ill will. But no! We must love even someone who doesn’t love us! Opposing evil with good, with pardon, with sharing, with welcome.

-from The Spirit of Saint Francis
