Thank you for all the support given to this year’s Catholic Charities 2019 Appeal. It ends June 30th, but I encourage all to still support this largest area appeal to help the needy. Please consider using our BSC parish code “0507”, when making a contribution. We are grateful to all who made donations to date, raising so far 70% of the parish’s goal of $34,000.
Last week, Corpus Christi Sunday had an extra special meaning to one of our parishioners, Alexis Scheelar, who reached a very important step in her Catholic formation through the RCIA process by completing the Sacraments of Initiation of the Catholic Church. Lexi was Confirmed (chosen name St. Dympha) and received her First Holy Communion. Her fiancé David Silverman was her Confirmation Sponsor. We congratulate her and keep her in our prayers as she will continue in the process in the final Mystagogy stage.
I thank all for the prayers as I prepare to celebrate my Silver Jubilee of my Ordination to Priesthood on Saturday, July 6th. I hope to see, pray for you and with you at the 4:00 pm Vigil Mass at Blessed Sacrament that day.
