From the Pastor's Desk - September 1, 2013

Dear Parishioners,

This coming weekend, September 7 & 8, is the weekend for the annual mission appeal for our parish. This year we welcome Msgr. Jerome Feudjio from the diocese of the U.S. Virgin Islands who will be celebrant for the Masses and talking about the needs of his diocese in his homily. As you might be aware, the Archdiocese assigns us who it is that will make the appeal. Envelopes from the Archdiocese will be provided and you will have a couple of weeks following the appeal to return your contribution. As disciples of Jesus and members of His Catholic Church, we remember that we have the call and responsibility to assist our fellow Catholics throughout the world. So, in this spirit of charity and evangelization, I encourage all generously to support the appeal.

Since I have to attend the biannual meeting of the National Advisory Council of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops I will be in Baltimore September 5-8. Because of this, there will not be a First Saturday Mass and Adoration of the Eucharist on the morning of September 7. Please pray for me and the other members of the National Advisory Council from throughout our nation who are chosen by our bishops to provide input on the various issues that they address at their meetings in November and June each year.

Have a grace-filled and wonderful week.

God bless you,
Fr. Gutowski
