THE PASTORíS DESK
By Fr. Terry Kerner
for the October 20-22 parish celebration commemorating St.
Canonization is going well. There is a variety of programs
and liturgies envisioned. I am grateful to the many
parishioners who have come forward and volunteered to take
on various tasks. We will be publishing soon the complete
schedule of eventsóall of which are open to all
parishioners and our fellow Catholics throughout the
your calendars now!
Sunday, September 24th, at the crack of dawn, twenty-four
hardy souls will embark on our parish trip to the Shrine
of St. Kateri in upstate New York. The visit to her shrine
and the one dedicated to the Jesuit North American Martyrs
will give us a special appreciation for our own Catholic
heritage and its seeds planted in the sixteenth
itinerary also calls for a visit to the Baseball Hall of
Fame, Hyde Park, the Culinary Institute of America, West
Point and a mountain side resort on the way home.
Hopefully, the weather will be great and all will go well
on our Autumn getaway!
Have a great week!
TIME TO GIVE THANKS
parish has been blessed over the past few years
with the resources to help create a new parish
center and establish beautiful grounds. However,
there is still work to be done and we could use
your help. Needed renovations to the parish hall
include new heating and cooling systems and a new
ceiling with lighting fixtures. We need 53 lights.
If you would like to donate a fixture and at the
same time honor someone who has brought light into
your life, simply fill out this form and enclose
your gift. It is an easy way of saying thank you!
