  Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time - June 21, 2015


Dear parishioners and friends in Christ,

I am very pleased to report that Bishop Murphy has assigned Father Gerald Cestare as our new priest! Father Jerry will join Father Moise Aime beginning this week. You will meet them both at Masses and get to know them throughout the summer. Welcome Fathers Moise & Jerry!

At the same time this week we sent Father Vinny and Father Suglia forth with our prayerful best wises and thanks as they begin their new assignments. See page 7 of this bulletin for letters from both of them.

Beginning next weekend, July and throughout August we will implement a temporary "Summer Mass Schedule" as have many parishes. After consultation with the Pastoral Staff, Parish Council, and Finance Committee, we will suspend the weekday 7:00 am Mass, and the 12:30 pm Sunday Mass, and the 4:00 pm Vietnamese Mass. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. And remember to pray for vocations to the priesthood!

Congratulations to our Saints Cyril & Methodius Catholic Parochial Elementary School graduates. We are very proud of you and grateful to our excellent Instructional Staff headed by Sister Susan Snyder. Registration continues throughout the summer. Our "school spirit" is the Holy Spirit—Catch It! Please phone 667-4044 x 131 for information.

Farewell and God’s Speed Fathers Vinny and Suglia, and Welcome Fathers Moise and Jerry!
