From The Pastor's Desk - June 29, 2011

Dear Parishioners,
On this Fourth of July weekend, I pray that all have an enjoyable and restful holiday. I encourage all who can to come to Mass on Monday morning at 8:00 A.M., July 4, in order to pray in thanksgiving for the blessings that we enjoy in our country and for all the needs of the United States. We have to pray that the conversion that our nation is in need of, especially in regards to the Gospel of Life, will happen because who knows when the Lord will remove even more His protective hand and allow us to suffer even greater calamities due to our turning away from living His Commandments here in America. We pray for our President and all who serve us in government that they only lead us according to God’s commandments. The Mass is the most powerful prayer for our country, so I hope to see you there on Monday.

If you did not get one of the inserts in last week’s bulletin that provides the update on our church renovation project, there are some on the tables in the entry area of church. I appreciate the feedback I have received, so, if you have any more questions and comments, please visit with me. One question that came up was in regards to the Blessed Mother and St. Joseph statues as to where these will be placed. I realized that I was not clear in the insert when some questioned me about it. These will be placed against the back front walls: the Blessed Mother to the right of the sanctuary and St. Joseph to the left. You will still be able to see these up front when you face the altar. The niches in the back wall of the church will be for future statues when we are able to get ones of other saints.

God bless,
Father Gutowski
