Notes from the Pastor
In your charity, please remember in prayer the soul of Linda Lowery, the sister of Sandy Brown of our parish. She passed away Sunday, November 8th. Also, Bill Finn, a former parishioner. He died at the end of August. May they rest in peace.
Abandon hope all ye who are looking for blooming flowers -- the melancholy days are come. There were some glorious moments seen in the trees, but the life span of the fall splendor was very short.
Thank you for your prayers on the 37th anniversary of my Ordination to the Priesthood on November 11th. Every now and then I run into my "first baptism". He works for the fire department. May you never need him. I have dozens of calendars dating back to my ordination filled with baptisms, first communions, weddings and obituaries. It is almost a library unto itself.
Just received notice that our BAA Goal got paid off. Now all amounts paid over and beyond this goal come back to St. Mary. It's good to pay things off as early as you can. At a certain point the diocese closes the books and any residue just goes to their office.
I've had a couple of calls from people who want to build stables for nativity sets. You are not too late to join the fun. We have at least two dozen sets of figures that have no abiding place. Figures range in height from 6" to a foot. Your creative talents and interpretation are most welcome. (Please no Popsicle sticks unless you're too young to read this.)
The Lord be with you!

P.S. A shout out for Sheila who was in the hospital this past week for knee replacement. All prayers are most appreciated.

Father Droll has a beautiful new office and his books really go right up to the
ceiling. There is a glaring deficiency in his office. I have
scanned all the titles and the closest I came to
