Fr. Tim's Pastor's Pen

 

Once again, I want to thank you for your patience and support lastweek as we announced our 2019 APA campaign at every Mass.  Although it is never easy to ask for money, I do appreciate being able to spend time reflecting on the history of our APA and how we have come such a long way in a relatively short time.  As you heard, our APA assessment for 2019 is $260,566.  With your continued support, I am confident we will meet that assessment again.  In case you missed last week’s Masses there are APA flyers and envelopes located in the narthex.

Unfortunately, since last Monday, we’re still waiting for an official start date for the roofing project to begin.  The delay is basically because of the bad weather days between signing the contract (in October) and the anticipated start date the first week of February.  I’m sure you will know when they begin, you’ll see it.

Congratulations to the hundreds of couples who marked their 50th Wedding Anniversary at the Cathedral of St. Jude this past Sunday at a special 3pm Mass.  We had five couples from our parish attend: Eric and Mary Wilson, Alfred and Mary Corey, Warren and Karen D’Andrea, Richard and Barbara Miller, and William and Deborah Scanlan.  May God continue to abundantly bless these wonderful examples to the Sacrament of Marriage.

St. Raphael School Theater will be performing again this Saturday and Sunday.  This year is Willy Wonka Jr.  These students began rehearsals in October and practiced, practiced, and practiced.  It is amazing what they can do.  They do such a wonderful job every year.  Come join us for one of the shows.  I guarantee you will enjoy it.

Your friend in Christ,

Fr. Timothy H. Sherwood
