Dear Friends,

SEMINARIANS ASSIGNED HERE FOR PASTORAL FORMATION

As in past years, we are blessed to cooperate with Mt. St. Mary’s Seminary (in Emmittsburg, MD) by hosting seminarians for pastoral formation experiences. This year we welcome three seminarians, who will each be here a couple of times a month:

• Deacon Robert Johnson of the Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska;

• Andrew Lewandowski and Ray Goins of our own diocese

who are in their first year of seminary studies.

We look forward to their presence in our vibrant parish!

NEW WEEKLY PARISH SUNDAY DINNER!

Join your fellow parishioners for dinner on any Sunday upstairs at Rockland’s BBQ (on Washington Blvd.), beginning at 7:15 P.M. All parishioners are welcome, and newcomers are especially encouraged to join. If convenient, feel free to park at St. Charles and walk to Rocklands (but keep in mind towing begins at 11:00 P.M.). We hope you will enjoy this informal, fun and delicious way of getting to know your fellow parishioners and celebrating the Lord’s Day!

ONLINE FAITH RESOURCES

Our parish now has its own podcast and a new “Resources” webpage! Find the links on our website under the “LEARN” menu, and check out our recommended podcasts, apps, YouTube channels, movies, books, websites and more… They’re great and entertaining ways to grow in understanding our faith.
