Notes from the Pastor


In your charity please remember in prayer the soul of Officer Steven Smith, a member of Columbus Police Department Swat team. Steve was a Catholic who grew up in Groveport, St. Mary. I gave him Last Rites and now am working with the family in preparation for his funeral. When an officer dies in the line of duty, hundreds of police cars converge to honor the fallen officer from around the state and beyond. Please pray for his family at this time and for the safety and protection of all police officers.


In addition please pray for Katherine Condo of an old St. Peter family whose funeral was Thursday at Sacred Heart Church, for Madeline Patton whose funeral was Wednesday at Corpus Christi and for the brother of Father Don Hope, Patrick, whose funeral will be Monday at Corpus Christi.


Please pray for the homebound and nursing home members of our parish. Many of you have asked about Leo. He appears to be getting weaker and would appreciate your continued prayers and cards mailed to Mohun Health Care Center, 2340 Airport Drive, Columbus, OH 43219. Room 327.


The Lord be with you!


Fr. Kevin F. Lutz



From The Cat at 684 S. Third Street:  


I’ve seen 19 springs in my life and this, by far, is the worst. My good friend Jym Ganahl (I actually know him and have been petted and admired by him) said this would be a lousy April. Duh!! Ask the blossoming trees on 3rd Street, I hear they are furious. There is a chain reaction to these things, you know. The trees need to grow for the birds, the birds need to fatten up and I like watching nature shows of fat birds on my lawn. I consider every window in the Rectory to be a flat screen TV.
