Welcome to Bishop Campbell who will offer the 4:00 Mass today (Saturday) and confirm the young men and women of the parish who have been preparing for this great occasion.  


Today (Sunday) is Zoo Day at Corpus Christi.  The blessing of animals will take place at 1:30 and the party will run from 2:00-4:oo p.m.   


This Friday I am flying to Rome in a pilgrimage in honor of the Sesquicentennial of St. Mary's.  I will offer Mass each day and remember all three parishes in my prayers.  We are scheduled to return to the USA on October 20th.  


On October 11th the Sisters of St Francis from Joliet, who taught at St. Mary for 117 years will be honored at a special Mass at 3 p.m. offered by Father Charlie Klinger.  Some of the Sisters are travelling in for the occasion.  All are welcome.  Spread the word among alumni.  It is safe to approach.  All detentions are cancelled.  


The Lord be with you!


Fr. Kevin F. Lutz


From the Cat at 684 South Third . . .


I am very excited about Zoo Day at Corpus Christi.  What a great idea.  As you know, I have been assigned associate cat of all three churches.  I am hoping to travel to the far reaches of my jurisdiction and see what's going on.  It looks like the West Side Cat (I was born in the bottoms near the Scioto) will meet the East Side Cats.  


I'm not in a very creative mood today.  The weather is damp and gloomy.  I've been around long enough that I know what this means.  Fall and Winter!  Egad!  I will do my best to dispel the darkness with my commentary on the passing parade.

Illuminating Our Faith: A Liturgical Stained Glass Windows Exhibition, at the Jubilee Museum’s new gallery, the Fra Angelico gallery, is on view from now through November 15, 2015.  The exhibition features 12 stained glass windows rescued from various churches, chapels and orphanages. Their beauty illuminates the strength and importance of stained glass windows as an art form and as a way of teaching our faith. Through the centuries, stained glass windows were intended to be didactic, literally illustrating the Bible to the faithful, many of whom were illiterate: “Stained glass is, basically, a Christian art, it had no existence until the Christian era. It is the art form which could be said to have profoundly distinguished Christian churches…” For more information please visit the Jubilee Museum and Catholic Cultural Center’s website at or call 614-600-0054. A suggested donation of $10 per person is greatly appreciated.
