From the Pastor’s Desk….…


In your charity, please pray for the repose of the souls of Adrian Sprosty, father of parishioner Tim Sprosty, who passed away this week at the age of 91; Donald Riedel, father of parishioner Leslie Weilbacher.  May they rest in peace. 


We are getting an associate Pastor, Father Nicholas Droll, who is coming to us from Saint Andrew in Upper Arlington. Father will officially move in on July 14th.


Saint Ladislas and Corpus Christi are being clustered with Saint Mary. All will remain independent and separate, just served by both of the priests at Saint Mary. There may also be extra help from another priest on weekends as well.


We’ve made the goal for BAA. All donations from this point forward stay at Saint Mary and there is no percentage taken out by the Diocese. Open your wallets and purses and release the prisoners! Wouldn’t you like to see a new parish hall named

                           (insert your name here) where we can gather instead of the “too-busy” gymnasium?


The Lord be with you! 


Father Kevin F. Lutz


From the Cat at 684 South Third Street:


I hear we are getting an associate pastor. When will we get an associate pamperer for me?? See how I suffer!


This summer is moving slowly. So am I. I hear the whole universe is slowing down. I feel it myself.


I hear the new priest, Father Droll, plays the drums. Egad!! Thankfully, I am already losing my hearing – maybe I can endure this.


Mary Sailor is my best friend! She always sends care packages and notes to me (and…… she doesn’t play the drums).


I have heard from Copper and Bailey, two dogs who abide with Luke McMurray and Mia Dickerson, that they, that is, Luke and Mia, are getting married this weekend. They are dog lovers who also love cats! See! Mixed marriages work out! Some of my best friends are dogs. But I draw the line at snakes.


Raphael, resting, so you don’t have to.

Due to the upgrade and installation of heating and cooling units in the school this summer it will be necessary to suspend coffee and doughnuts during the month of July. These upgrades will require the electricity to be shut off while this work is being done. Coffee and doughnuts will resume the first weekend in August.



The Catholic Foundation serves every parish within the 23-county Diocese of Columbus. Please help The Catholic Foundation and our parish by participating in a brief, confidential, 5-minute survey. You may return the survey to the collection box in the vestibule, or by mailing it to The Catholic Foundation at 257 East Broad Street, Columbus, OH 43215. The survey is also available to complete online at

All results will be reported anonymously and as an aggregate of all parishes. Thank you for helping The Catholic Foundation support our parish.

God is love. There is no one whom God does not love. There is no one to whom God does not offer his mercy. If we, then, consciously exclude someone from our love, from our mercy, by refusing to forgive, we are cutting ourselves off from God. We are telling God that we love him, but we don’t love others whom he loves. So we are not in full communion with him.  -  from Answers
