Padre's Page - August 12

Dear Friends, here’s what’s up this week:

REGISTRATION FOR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & YOUTH MINISTRY…

…is now open.  Parents, please register all your children and teens for our dynamic programs of ongoing formation in our faith.  You can do so easily online:  visit our website under the LEARN menu.

SUMMERTIME, AND THE LIVING IS EASY…

Summer often means a slower pace of life, more recreation and vacation–but be sure not to take a vacation from your vocation to be saint!  Encountering the Lord through daily prayer, Sunday Mass and frequent Confession should always remain the bases of our spiritual lives.  When traveling, find local Mass and Confession times using this convenient website:  masstimes.org

Enjoy the Summer, and remember to put Jesus first!

SPEAKING OF VACATION…  

I’m away this weekend in Kentucky to baptize the second child of a couple–former Christendom College students of mine–whose marriage I celebrated a few years ago.  As a priest it’s always a special joy to baptize the children of couples whose weddings we witness:  it’s so beautiful to see the fruits of marriage, to see a family grow!

NEW SIGNS

You probably noticed new signs on our buildings:  these large signs, illuminated at night, will make more clear to people who we are, what we are, where we are–they are an investment in evangelization!  “Many began to believe in his name when they saw the signs,” haha!  (Jn 2:23)

I remain, your servant in Christ Jesus,

Father Don
