From the Pastor's Desk - February 19, 2012

 

Dear Parishioners,
Again, in this weekend’s bulletin, I have placed various inserts.  In one, that I said would be in last week’s bulletin but ran out of time to get it ready, I thank all who were involved in the Mass of Dedication on February 3. Most of these persons were acknowledged in the program for this Mass but since everyone was not able to attend the dedication Mass, I want to include this in the Sunday bulletin.  A second insert is in reference to the Season of Lent that begins this coming Wednesday.  Please review the Lenten regulations that we are obliged to follow as Catholics. Also, in light of the federal mandate regarding religious institutions and insurance coverage for contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients that our Catholic bishops are opposing as an obstruction to our religious liberty to do what is right and moral, in a third insert I will present the moral teaching of the Church on why contraception and sterilization are intrinsically wrong and therefore are an offense against God and an assault upon the dignity of the human person and upon the sacredness of marriage.
Further, I want to congratulate the 27 youth and one adult from our parish who received the sacrament of Confirmation from Archbishop Lucas last weekend.  We will be honoring them at the 9:00 A.M. Mass next Sunday on February 26.
Have a blessed and grace-filled week.
God bless,  Fr. Gutowski
