May 26, 2012

Dear Parishioners, Playing a brass instrument like the tuba or trombone or saxophone takes a lot of “breath power.” I was watching the five musicians in amazement last Sunday evening in the church as they went from Duke Ellington to George Gershwin to Fats Waller to Scott Joplin and made it seem effortless! I was…

Jot a Note to a Nun

May 17, 2012

Dear Parishioners, I know that many of you are aware of the recent Vatican criticism of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, an organization which represents about 80 percent of the American religious orders of nuns and sisters.

April 28, 2012

I mean the people who, as soon as they see you, desperately try to evacuate the area like it’s a hot Haz-Mat Zone. Sometimes. you can…

The Value Of Belonging

April 21, 2012

Dear Parishioners, I don’t know about you, but I am still floating! Our parish’s celebrations of the Sacred Triduum – Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil – as well as the Masses on Easter Sunday, have left me in awe…they were beautifully celebrated and received.

Special Thanks to All Holy Week Volunteers

April 14, 2012

Dear Parishioners, If you’ve ever looked at the inside workings of a wristwatch, you know how tiny some of the springs and gears are. Yet, if even one of them is missing or broken or not doing its job, the watch as a whole cannot function. That’s what it was like around here last week…
