Notes from the Pastor


Get ready for the St. Mary Festival that will take place Friday and Saturday, August 12th and 13th (A little over a month from today.)  Mark your calendar for this fantastic parish event.  It gives us all an opportunity to share time with friends and support our parish -- having FUN at the same time.  Your Festival Raffle Tickets will be available for pick up at the rear of Church possibly next weekend. We ask you to go above and beyond the call of duty breaking all records of raffle ticket sales here at St. Mary.I know you can do it!!!


A special thank you to Bill and Laura Antoniak for an excellent Patriotic Concert last Friday.  It was especially moving when the hymns of each branch of service were played and Veterans, sometimes struggling a bit, rose to honor their branch of the service.  And there is nothing like a John Phillips Sousa March!!! Proceeds from the concert are being given to the Wounded Warriors Project.  God bless America!


The Lord be with you!

Father Kevin Lutz



From the Cat at 684 South Third Street:


Last week, June 29th, I looked out my chapel window and I saw Kurosawa and his two-legged friend, Klaus.  They were on the lawn and receiving a blessing from Father Lutz.  I can't hear too well anymore, so I don't know what was said.  Some fur was shaved making me think he had gone through a medical treatment.  I also saw a lot of tears from Klaus and I figured out the sad news that Kuro was soon to leave this world.  


To my great surprise, I received a letter from Kuro as he composed his own little obituary and farewell love letter.  I offer you a few pieces:


     "On a day not so long ago, I would have LOVED to challenge you to a spirited jaunt around the Rectory; alas, this fun is not to be.  I am humbled -- and rely on all of you to see my beloved family through my transition awaiting them, their smiles, and loving hugs once again.  

     A bit about me: I am a brown and white Siberian Husky, eight years old -- with a liver-colored nose, born 2008.  I had a lazy eye then, but Klaus saw me as PERFECT.  My fur-less mom, Marissa, and sister, Elinore Mae, have read BOTH of your books to me.  I'm unable to wax poetic as you, but I DO share your love of life.  It's said:  The light that burns twice as bright, burns twice as fast...just look into my beautiful blue eyes!  

     The beast of cancer has taken over my body, but not yet my mind, I am not long for this world; however, I appreciate the blessings bestowed upon me by Father Lutz.  Rest assured, although I am DOG and you are CAT -- we are one, a united force of LOVE!

     So, dear Raphael -- carry on as best you can.  Know you are loved by many (as I know I am -- especially Fr. Lutz, and the parishioners of St. Mary.)  ...and leaving more than a bit of my wavy white undercoat fur as a gentle reminder of my joyous time here -- and my unconditional LOVE for my family and friends -- as GOD provides HIS unconditional LOVE and MERCY."         

                                                                                                                                       Kurosawa Darkwater Duren


Well!  What a beautiful letter.  My new friend is gone.  He wrote more, but the rest is for me.  Go ahead.  Get a Kleenex.  I could use one myself.


Raphael, Mourning in the Morning

God calls us all to holiness. No matter where we are in life, no matter what we’ve done, God is showing us the way even if it twists and turns in seeming darkness. Christ will never abandon us. He calls out to us, and we must respond.
