From the Pastor

Dear Parishioners

Dear Parishioners,

This weekend we ask you to continue your prayerful support of our Catechumen and Candidates in the RCIA program. They all took part in the Rite of Election last Sunday evening at Sacred Heart.

Father Reif will conduct the first of the three “Scrutinies,” as part of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. I will be at our annual CYO Breakfast at The Diplomat. The CYO teams join us at 8 AM Mass today. The “games” may be over but the CYO is still active in the Parish as always. Please join them at Stations of the Cross 7PM on April 12 If you’re free at 1:30 PM Fridays, join the students of our school at Stations in church. We also have Stations of the Cross on Fridays after the 7:30 AM Mass.

Please read about our forthcoming Lenten Retreat in the column to the right. While we are hosting the Retreat itself, the other three Parishes of our area are hosting refreshments so we hope you will stay to join our friends.

Thank you for taking the “Black Books,” which have run out. We hope that they are helping your Lenten Journey.

Thanks to all who helped with St. Joseph’s Table. It was very well attended. Our neighbor Father William Coffas, from Mother of Sorrows Parish also came. Father said he “never passes up free food.”

We have received sufficient donations to cover the cost of the ten lights in the side room of the church. Thanks to all our donors.

Sincerely, Father Gagnier
