FROM OUR PASTOR
Last Sunday we celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation for twenty-four young adults and one adult from our parish. I am very grateful to Bishop Martin Amos for being with us for the celebration that took place at the 11:00AM Mass. I also want to thank Sister Josephine for her role in leading the pre-sacramental formation sessions for all of those who were confirmed. Along with Sister Josephine we had fourteen adults and young adults from the parish assist in the two-year program of catechesis for Confirmation. Thank you to Greg Carlson, Katy Doman, Thomas Dreher, Heather Horsfall, Jeanine Hozian, Lee Jarocki, Steven Levand, Barb Misenko, Cindy Patt, Amy Seitz, Amy Silvaroli, Dan Silvaroli, Tom Silvaroli and Patrick Ward. It is really great for me to know that so many parishioners are ready to share their faith with others especially in our pre-sacramental programs.
Welcome to Arthur Bodenschatz who will be spending the summer living in our Parish House with me and Fr. Dennis McNeil and Fr Lou Pizmoht when he begins living with us once again next month. Arthur will be starting his second year at Borromeo College Seminary this August. He is studying to be a priest for our neighboring Diocese of Youngstown. This summer he will be working at the Center for Pastoral Leadership in Wickliffe. He will be involved with the Tolle Lege Summer Institute for High School Senior girls and boys. He will also be helping out with preparations for The Fest which will take place on the first Sunday of August this year. Say hello to Arthur if you see him around the property this Summer.
