Once again, we welcome another group of young people to the table of the Lord this weekend! The second First Communion group celebrated Mass at 3pm and as always, it was an honor to share such a special time with the children of our community. Special thanks to our Director of Relgious Education, Maria Keohane, our PSR and day school teachers, as well as the parents of these young people who helped prepare them to celebrate the sacrament.
Last weekend I listed the names of all those who served on our Parish Pastoral Council for the last four years; I forgot to mention Betty Cross! She and the other men and women met each month to reflect on parish life and offer me invaluable guidance in my role as pastor. I am blessed to serve with so many committed parishioners.
Next weekend I will celebrate my 25th anniversary as a priest in the Diocese of Cleveland. I have invited my family and some friends from other parishes to join us at the 11:15am Mass. A light lunch will be served after mass in the Bishop Amos Center. All are welcome to stay for lunch, yet a RSVP to the rectory would be helpful for planning. I hope you can join us!
Our annual parish golf outing is scheduled for Friday, May 31, at Hawthorne Valley Country Club. All men and women of the parish are invited to join us. If you don’t have a foursome, simply call Karen McDevitt at the office and she can match you up with another group. If you are not the best of golfers, we will put you behind my foursome and you will be in good company! Please see the bulletin ad for more details.
Finally, congratulations to Christina Emerson who was awarded the Cantando Devotio award by the Music Ministry last weekend. This award is given each year to a member of the choir who shows devotion and commitment to serving in the choir. We thank Christina for all that she offers to make our liturgies so joyful!
