Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - June 17, 2018

 

Dear parishioners and friends in Christ,

Happy Father’s Day! Today we give prayerful thanks to all of you men who share so much of your life and love with your children. With all of the pres-sure and stresses currently associated with family life, employment, and the economy, you truly deserve this expression of our gratitude and love. We also include in our remembrances at Masses today all of our fathers who have passed on to eternal life. May they too know of our love and appreciation for the count-less sacrifices they have made for their families. May they intercede for us and rest in peace in the presence of our Heavenly Father.

Congratulations to our Saints Cyril & Metho-dius 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.

Registration is also now underway for our Religious Education Program. Registration forms were distributed at the end of this current school year. Kindly return them as soon as possible. Pass the word to neighbors and friends. We will need the entire sum-mer to place students in classes, arrange for cate-chists, and order materials. Registration Forms are available at the Religious Education Office and at the Parish Center Office.

All Parish ministries, programs and organiza-tions are to report their compliance with the Virtus Training and Background screening in writing to Joan Loring before July 1st. Please phone Joan at x122. for further information.

Beginning in July and throughout August we will implement a temporary "Summer Mass Schedule" as have many parishes. As we did for the past two summers we will suspend the weekday 7:00 am Mass, and the 12:30 pm Sunday Mass, Thank you for your cooperation.

The Annual Msgr. Rooney Golf Outing is this coming Thursday, June 21st There is still room for a few more golfers and dinner guests. Phone Deacon Phil Mills for reservations. Thank you to all of those who support this annual fundraiser for our Parish.
