Pentecost Sunday - June 9, 2019
Dear Parishioners and friends in Christ,
Happy Pentecost, the Birthday of the Church! May the Holy Spirit fill your hearts with the fire of God’s love. Congratulations to all of our newly Confirmed middle schoolers! We look forward to them taking their place as active participants in the life of the Church. The next step? Youth Ministry with Tim Leitch on Sunday evenings.
As we are rejoicing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit I am truly grateful to God for the many talents and abilities present in our own Parish Family of Saints Cyril & Methodius. I am also very thankful for our Parish Professional Staff and to our support Staff for their tireless efforts on behalf of our Parish Family. In all of you we are gifted by God! Thank you to all of our employees and to all who serve in the many ministries, pastoral programs and administrative committees here in our Parish.
Next Sunday we celebrate Father’s Day. All of our fathers, living and deceased will be remembered at Masses on Father’s Day and all throughout the following week. Envelopes for your intentions were mailed to all on our “envelope list.” Additional envelopes are available at the doors of the church and at the Parish Office this week.
I am pleased to report that our parishioners have pledged just over $111,689 to this year’s Catholic Ministries Appeal. Thank you for your support of the Appeal which helps to support the pastoral ministries of our Diocese and assists us here in our own Parish.
Our very own Saints Cyril and Methodius Parochial Elementary School is now registering students for the Fall ‘19 semester. With an excellent, experienced faculty, affordable tuition, and a Gospel centered atmosphere our Parish School might be just what you are looking for your child. Give Sister Susan Snyder a call to schedule a tour (667-4044 ex. 133)
Our Golf Outing is coming up on Thursday, June 13th. Join us for golf and/or for dinner, silent auction and raffles. See page 12 for registration and sponsorship information. And thank you to all of those who support this annual fundraiser for our Parish.
Beginning in July and throughout August we will implement a temporary “Summer Mass Schedule” as have many parishes. As we did for the past four summers we will suspend the weekday 7:00 am Mass. Thank you for your cooperation.
Have a great week and God bless you!
Monsignor Bob Clerkin
