Thanks to the following Knights: Ron Yancone, Tommy Plantone, Kevin Monaghan, Charles and Sean Hannon, and Ron Crandall for sharing their time and talent on Saturday, May 16. They raked grass and leaves, trimmed bushes and plants, picked up enough branches and debris to fill up a whole trailer!
They emptied the clothing shed and separated cans and bottles for eventual redemption by the Boy Scouts who will benefit from the huge pile shown below in our garage, given just since the quarantine period! (Earlier returns are still stored in our former convent.)
We celebrate with Alessio Giocobone, our choir director and organist. He has earned his Master of Music degree, and was awarded the Barnes Prize for Excellence in Pipe Organ Performance, based on his performance at his degree recital at Sacred Heart Cathedral last September.
He will be starting a doctoral program at ESM in the fall: the degree is called Doctor of Musical Arts (DMA), and it is the highest achievement in academic studies related to music in this country. Since this program takes at least 3 years, Holy Cross will be blessed with his continued leadership of our music ministry.
Remember in Your Prayers all those affected by the Coronavirus throughout the World.
Compassionate and Loving Father, In the face of confusion and concern impart to us the calm of Your presence. In You allow us to find hope and healing.
Be with those who lead and give them Your spirit of wisdom. Be with those who have fallen ill and give them Your comforting heart.
Wrap Your arms around our world, and hold us in Your love. Allow us at this time of trial to then serve as instruments of that love to all we meet. We ask this in Your name.
