From the Pastor's stateroom . . .


In your charity please pray for the following who have died:

Frances Bobo whose funeral is Saturday, Jan. 16th at Saint Leo, Frances is the mother of parishioners Sue Rock and Barbara Brake.  Thomasa Cardwell, mother of 8th grader Corrie, her funeral is also Saturday, the 16th and Dustin Powers who passed away several days ago. Dustin is the son-in-law of Jan Klanenbach, our representative to the Polish community. May they rest in peace.


At the moment I am between Haiti and Jamaica.  I offered Mass this morning in the Jazz Club.  Not exactly Notre Dame. Praying for you all. Miss you but not the weather.  I seldom travel in the winter (guilt is part of it), but friends gave me a trip and so here I am . . .


See you soon. You are in my prayers!


Fr. Kevin F. Lutz

Yes, I'm still here and having my own "Cats Away Party till the boss gets back”.  Come over and bring treats.  I've got the Kibbles if you've got the bits.
