PASTOR’S CORNER FEB. 23, 2011
The Gospels of the past few weeks have focused on the Beatitudes and how to live them in a practical manner each day. One way to live Jesus’ message of love is to practice the Corporeal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. As a parish we can do this in many ways but there is one pressing need NOW!
You are probably aware that last week there was a fire on 4th avenue that totally destroyed a house and a home. The Grencavick/Dickinson family, members of our parish, are in need of our assistance. Along with the Bishop McHugh School family we will be raising money to help them in this time of need. You can help by bringing “gift” cards to the parish center of going to our parish web site, ourladyoftheangels.net. In the lower left hand corner there is a “donate” button. Click on the button and on the next page type in your donation and how you wish to donate (pay pal or credit card). It is very easy and very secure. All monies that are raised will be given to the family. They are also looking for a 4/5 bedroom house to rent. Contact the Parish Center to help. Thank you.
There are many important events happening in the parish during the next few weeks, too many for me to list here but they are explained throughout the bulletin. Please read the whole bulletin, not only this week but every week.
Reminder: next weekend is the Free Spaghetti Dinner sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Ladies Auxiliary but you must sign up. Sign up sheets are in the vestibule. Ash Wednesday is March 9th please bring in your old palms.
Our thanks and prayers to Fr. Tom Kiely who shared his Vocation Message with us this weekend. Please continue to pray for Vocations and all those in Formation.
