Announcements

Today we celebrate the relationships at the heart of our faith.
As God eternally participates in the relationship of Father, Son and Spirit, we too participate in this sacred community and in the great historic sweep of God’s people past, present, future. Through baptism, we are called by God to become part of this deeply connected family. Let us commit to loving and serving not only members of this family, but all people. “The Solemnity of the Holy Trinity leads us to contemplate and worship the divine life of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit: a life of communion and perfect love, origin and aim of all the universe and of every person: God.” Pope Francis

“Holiness consists not in extraordinary actions, but in performing your duties toward God, yourself, and others well.” St. Maximilian Kolbe

This coming Friday will be the FIRST FRIDAY of June. Lets try daily Mass at 8:30 am. We’ll plan to have a Pot Luck Breakfast after Mass.

At all Masses next weekend
there will be an opportunity to contribute to a collection on behalf of retired diocesan priests under the title Priest Pension Plan. This worthy fund ensures that priests who have so generously dedicated their lives in service of God’s people in this Archdiocese may be able to live in retirement with dignity and appropriate care. The age when an appropriately incardinated diocesan priest may retire with a retirement benefit is seventy.

MEMORIAL DAY will be observed on Monday, May 28th
and the church office will be closed. We hope it will be a good day for you and your family. It is our time to remember the many of our military members who gave their lives in service of country and their fellow citizens. We are grateful to have the insight that they are resting in peace in God’s company. We honor their memory at our Liturgies this weekend. We remember also our brave men and women now serving in our Armed Forces, who are defending us from harm and injustice both at home and abroad. We pray that they return safely to their families, their loved ones, and to us, whom they have served so selflessly. We wish you a Blessed Memorial Day !
