From the Pastor
One of the joys of Easter is the gift of understanding. We all know what it feels like when we finally understand something we have previously doubted or haven't fully grasped. It is like having a light go on in our heads. When Jesus opened the minds of His disciples, He was showing them that everything was going to be all right. He had risen from the dead, and He was in control. There was nothing to be afraid of! There is going to be transition and change for us in the next few months; I will be receiving a new assignment and you will be welcoming a new pastor. We may be wondering how this will turn out for us, but let us be sure of one thing - Jesus has risen from the dead, and He is in control. All will be well! You may recall that when Fr. Troha was leaving as pastor the diocese conducted a "Town Hall" meeting to gather some insight prior to choosing a new pastor. Fr. Don Oleksiak the head of priest personnel for the diocese has informed me that since this process was done just over a year ago, he and the personnel board will NOT be holding another Town Hall meeting; Fr. Oleksiak feels the personnel board has enough information and knowledge to make a recommendation to Bishop Lennon concerning your new pastor. Your new pastor will be here June 9, 2015. I know you will greet him the way you greeted me; with kindness, joy and excitement. Let's continue to pray for one another - and let us never forget: He is in control! Have a blessed and Holy Week! Fr. Chris.
The American Red Cross will be conducting another blood drive on Sunday 5/17/15 from 8:30 a.m. till 1:30 p.m. in the school gym. Please consider donating, as there is a constant need for blood in our area!
In the weeks ahead, our parish representative from Solutio, Inc., will be setting up the advertising for our website for the year.
Please consider participating in this effort since the revenue from the ads is what makes the website possible at no cost to the parish.
It’s a great way to get your name in front of the families in the parish. Advertisements may be purchased for a business, family memorial, or you can sponsor an ad supporting Catholic Charities, Knights of Columbus, Vocations, etc.
Please give these ideas some thought. We need and appreciate your help! If you are interested or just curious as to prices and want more information, please contact 440.378.5773 or Sponsorship@SolutioSoftware.com.
