150 Years and Counting!

June is knocking at the door. School is out. It’s graduation season and congratulations to all of the graduating seniors from our parishes! Also in June Sacred Heart parish in St. Paris is celebrating 150 years. This momentous occasion will be marked by a special Mass at Sacred Heart on June 10th at 3:00 pm. Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr will preside, and we would love for as many people as possible from our parishes to be there to help celebrate. This Mass will fulfill the Sunday obligation for Mass attendance, and those who attend need only drop their parish envelope in the collection, or a check made out to the parish of their choice, and those donations will be included in that week’s collection for each respective parish.

This special anniversary Mass will not affect the regular Mass schedule; all of the parishes will have their regular Masses. If your schedule doesn’t allow for attending the afternoon anniversary Mass, perhaps you could join in solidarity with a special prayer for Sacred Heart parish. After all, it’s not every day a parish turns 150!

For the greater glory of God,
Fr. Matt

I will Go the Altar of God

This weekend our Archdiocese ordained four new Priests. As every year, the Mass of Ordination is a spectacular event and should be on the bucket list for every Catholic. Priests bring us the Sacraments and minister to every human need, but they’re not Superman. They are ordinary men who have responded to a call from God and have laid down their lives in service to the Church. This weekend, they formally took up the Cross of Christ and began the lifelong journey to Calvary. Along the way will be countless families struggling to live the Faith, countless baptisms, weddings, and funerals, innumerable anointings, joyous receptions, and endless assurances of faith, all pointing to the divine reality of Eternal Life waiting for the faithful soul.

Let us pray for these newly ordained ministers of God, thanking God for them, and pleading for more laborers in the vineyard of the Lord.

For the greater glory of God,
Fr. Matt
