Notes from the Pastor


Time and tide wait for no man.  Every day seems to have more than enough to fill it, mixed with the unfinished things of the day before and the things of the day to come.  My schedule was especially thrown off by being on a pilgrimage for 11 days followed by three days for a clergy conference, followed by two days' training at the Columbus Police Academy.  I was just sworn in as a chaplain for the Columbus Police Department.  It was an interesting group that was sworn in, including another priest, a rabbi and several Christian church ministers.


If you were not able to see the relics of St. Maria Goretti which were in our Cathedral for one day, come to the museum any time and see a relic of her that is in our relic collection.


If you are interested in a crafty little project, let me know.  We have several nativity sets among the 170 that need stables.  Contact me and we will give you a set of statues or their dimensions and you are invited to create a little house for the Holy Family.


This Wednesday I will observe the 37th anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood.  I will offer the 5:30 p.m. Mass at St. Mary's (it is a Latin Mass) and , if you are free, you are most welcome.  I especially invite the members of Corpus Christi and St. Ladislaus.  I still have a good number of holy cards from my 25th anniversary. They will be available in the back of St. Mary's after the Wednesday Mass.  


The Lord be with you!


Father Kevin F. Lutz



From the Cat at 684 S. Third Street:


Father Lutz seems to be in a good mood.  He went to OSU and met Peter Cardinal Turkson.  After Father kissed the Cardinal's ring, the Cardinal kissed his ring!   Cardinals have a different ranking in my hierarchy than the Church’s.  The cardinal, in my hierarchy, is edible and tasty.  The Cardinals in his Church seem to be a bit old and lean.  Never tried to bite one; never had the chance.  They must be keeping their distance, having heard of my prowess and skill.


November is here and the mysterious metallic opening in the floor has begun to yield heat waves instead of cool zephyrs.  

Recently, my dear friend Natalie drew a picture of my Guardian Angel.  That should convince Father Droll that I have a soul.

She is the artist of the beautiful picture of me and my angel.
