A Few Words from Father Steve
It was an aspiring weekend as I commissioned our dedicated catechists at the 9:00 am Mass and then at the 6:00 pm Mass, I witnessed our Confirmation candidates participate in the Rite of Commitment. Both of these events reminded me of the importance of all of us to hand on the faith.
We gather today as we do every Sunday, around the table of the Lord. We do so in order to receive Christ, the Bread of Life. In the gospel, Jesus says, “Who ever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.” How does Jesus remain in you? Can others see Christ’s presence in you in the way that you act? Let us ponder these questions as we approach the table to receive Christ.
Registration and bills for Religious Education have been sent and payment of tuition for Religious Education is due as soon as possible to allow us to pay bills for materials purchased for our students. As you know, I decided not to increase tuition amount but it is important for all to make their payments to defray the cost of the program. As with everything, lots of hands make less work.
It has been many years since our St. Theresa’s Chapel has been painted. Last week, we began the process of updating the chapel. Old, peeling paint has been removed and cracks will be sealed and broken windows replaced. Drive by sometime and take a look. Next will be the main church. It will be a slow process but whenever I can, I would like to update all of our areas. As usual, I will keep everyone posted through my Pastor’s column.
Now that our students have gone back to school and Religious Education classes have begun, we pray for God’s blessings for them and for their teachers. Another wonderful gift is that our choirs return this weekend. Last week, we blessed our students and teachers in Religious Education and this week, we bless our Adult Choir and next week, we bless the Chorister, our youth choir. May God bless you.
Love, Fr. Steve
