Note: Confession is heard ½ hour prior to each weekend Mass


In our relationship with the Lord, we sometimes think that it’s not necessary to express our love for him.  After all, he knows everything, so why bother? Even though he is all-knowing, he enjoys hearing the words “I love you.” Getting into the habit of saying those words will draw you closer to him.                         -from Find a Real Friend in Jesus

Notes from the Pastor


Last Sunday was a very beautiful day with the children from St. Ladislas and St. Mary making their First Holy Communion.  It is always a moving experience to see the children in their First Communion attire coming down the aisle.  For nearly every person who sees it, it brings back fond memories of that day.  Renew your own love for Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.


Friday, May 13th is the 99th Anniversary of the Appearances of Our Lady at Fatima.  The day holds a secondary memory for me, as my father died on that day in 1980.  Many of the predictions that Our Lady made at Fatima have come to pass.  Read the prophecies and pray the rosary.


We are getting closer to the Ordination of Deacon Tim as a priest.  His Ordination will occur on May 28th.  Father Lynch will offer his First Mass of Thanksgiving on May 29th at 2:30 p.m. here at St. Mary Church.  The parish is invited to attend this Mass.  If you go to the regular parish Mass and the First Mass of Fr. Lynch you may receive communion at both.  Also you will have the chance to receive the first priestly blessing of the newly ordained.   There will be a reception for Father Tim, his family and the parish following his Mass.  It will be held in the auditorium of the school.


Monday, May 30, is Memorial Day.  I will be offering Mass at 11:00 a.m. at Mount Calvary Cemetery on Mound Street by the old Cooper Stadium.  All are welcome to attend that Mass.


The Lord be with you!

Father Kevin F. Lutz



From the Cat at 684 S. Third Street:


I love the new sequence of the seasons.  One day it's quite chilly, the next it rains, the next day is warm and sunny --- then keep repeating this cycle over and over and you have experienced May in Ohio.  It's against the law to have two sunny days in a row in Ohio--especially during May.


I will miss Deacon Tim.  He never fails to feed me as he comes in from the seminary.  He and I watch late-night basketball on TV.  He is much easier to comprehend when he is in the lounge chair.  When he is standing tall, my poor arthritic neck can hardly tilt back enough to look him in the eyes.


I will try to talk Father into giving him a framed picture of my countenance as he travels on from St. Mary's.  


The sun is shining today --- I must catch what I can while I can.


Raphael, the Sunnyside-Up Cat
