Notes from the Pastor


Peace of the Risen Savior to you!  


This bulletin is written in advance so I will comment in complete confidence "Weren't the services for Holy Week beautiful!"


Congratulations to our newest members at all three churches.  May the graces of these days guard you all unto everlasting life.  


Keep in your prayers the three deacons of the diocese who are soon to be ordained priests, including Deacon Tim Lynch of our parish.  


A reminder:  There will be no Masses  Tuesday, 8:15 a.m. on March 29th and on Friday, April 1 at 8:15 a.m. at St. Mary's.  (This is not an April Fools’ Day joke.)


The Lord be with you!

Father Kevin Lutz



From the Cat at 684 S. Third Street:


Easter Eggs!! What a fraud! Eggs are supposed to turn into chickens and chickens are to turn into dinner.  I've cracked open a few Easter Eggs in my day only to find them filled with chocolate--Who's behind this?


Now aside from the eggs---What about the Easter Bunny!?  First of all, does anyone think rabbits actually lay these things?  They are merely the UPS of the animal world and they deliver them.  Rabbits are funny creatures.  They look like a prototype of a cat, but with some obvious flaws.  What is the purpose of ears that won't stand up?  And what of the cotton puff for a tail?  A cat has a true tail that waves as a wand bravely and firmly as it walks.


Oh well, Happy Easter. 


I must consider studying the chicken and egg thing more closely.  I may have been deceived.


Rafael, the chicken/egg investigator 




News Worthy Notes

The day is filled with live music, high end gift bags, and more including “The Mommy Mile,” which is a one mile walk to highlight those women who are soon to be mothers, experienced mothers, grandmothers, and their families. Mommy Mile aims to develop a fun and light celebratory event in a mainstream culture that’s about celebrating “Mommy,” empowering women, encouraging fitness, and drawing a community together to recognize one of the greatest gifts on earth: Motherhood. St. Mary School will be gathering a team of participants. Please contact Dominic Petrozzi ( if you would like to register. All funds raised at this event will be given to the Ronald McDonald House.

The next Catholic Men’s Luncheon Club features a talk by Fred Shafer from St. Brendan the Navigator parish, “Mercy: Becoming a Man Fully Alive.” Fred’s story will highlight his return to the Church from a successful rock music career that had led him away from God, away from the Church, and ended up costing him nearly everything. This month’s luncheon is sponsored by James Valent, FICF, General Agent with the Knights of Columbus. As always the luncheon is at St. Patrick Church in downtown Columbus on Friday, April 1. Holy Mass begins at 11:45 am followed by lunch and Fred’s talk until about 1:00 pm. No reservations necessary. $10.00 covers the lunch and meeting. Bring a friend!

O great and glorious God and my Lord Jesus, send your Spirit into our midst that he may enlighten our minds and inflame our hearts, that he may give us a right faith, a certain hope, and a perfect charity. In this way, we pray that we may be able to understand the Word of God given to us in the Scriptures by the Holy Spirit, and that as he dwells in our hearts, he may bring us closer to you and to all our brothers and sisters in the world today. Amen.
