From the Pastor’s Desk….…


I hope you enjoyed Father Paul Noble's coverage last weekend.  He has done much to recruit both many and good men for the seminary.


As I write these words, Pope Francis is speaking to the Bishops at St. Matthew Cathedral in Washington DC.  I've been bouncing from channel to channel -- NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, Fox News and watching many different interviews and angles of presentation.  Both the pope and the president spoke powerfully at the White House this morning.  Who draws crowds like this!!!  People are yearning for an authentic message.  People have been waiting since 4:00 a.m. and standing 30 deep just to catch a glimpse.  Pray the people listen to his message of peace and good will.


Bishop Campbell will be here on October 3rd to confirm the young men and women of our parish.  This will take place at the 4:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday, October 3rd.


Ruth Beckman, the legendary leader of JOIN which helps with daily emergency assistance, is retiring after many years.  A true friend of the poor and a sterling example of the service that Pope Francis calls his people to.


Stop by Corpus Christi on Sunday, Oct. 4th at 1:30 p.m. for a blessing of animals. Immediately following the blessing Corpus Christi will hold a Zoo Day from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Blessing of the animals is scheduled for Saint Mary on Oct. 24th.


The Lord be with you!


Father Kevin F. Lutz


From the Cat at 684 S. Third Street:


I just received my letter from the Cat Personnel Board that I am now the associate cat of Corpus Christi and St. Ladislas.  More writing to do!  I shall not decrease my efforts here, but rise to the occasion and take care of all three churches.
