Fourth Sunday of Easter - May 12, 2019
Dear Parishioners and friends in Christ,
Happy Mother’s Day! All of our mothers, living and deceased will be remembered at Masses this Mother’s Day and all throughout the week.
As we enter into this beautiful month of May I request your prayers for our First Holy Communion and Confirmation classes. All throughout this month our young parishioners will enter more deeply into the mystery of God’s love for them. Let us pray that they, together with their families, will experience a “spiritual spring-time.” May they truly encounter the Lord in these wonderful Sacraments of Christian Initiation and become active members of our Roman Catholic Faith Community and of our Parish Family.
And did you know that the Rosary is prayed after our daily 12:15 afternoon weekday Mass? May is Mary’s month and a very appropriate time to “go to Jesus through Mary.”
If you have not already done so, please consider a donation to this year’s Catholic Ministries Appeal. Your tax deductible sacrifice can do so much for so many. And remember that a substantial rebate comes back to our own Parish upon reaching our goal. We are currently at 80% of this year’s goal!
Many exciting events are scheduled for the weeks ahead. Please make plans to join us for our Annual Msgr. Rooney Golf Outing on June 13. This year we will be honoring Sister Susan Snyder, CSJ, Principal of Ss. Cyril and Methodius School and Barbara and Sal Mangano, Mangano Funeral Home and James Caratozzolo, Boyd Caratozzolo Funeral Home.
Have a great week and God bless you!
Monsignor Bob Clerkin
