From the Desk of Fr. Dennis

Of Many Things

As we officially enter the summer months, marking graduations and so many other new beginnings and thresholds, we stop to pause and thank some wonderful people for their service to our parish. The newly elected Parish Council members are:

Carole Cipriano MaryAnn Kelly Terri Perrotti

I rely on the Parish Council for advice, as well as new ideas and efforts to advance the mission of our parish family. They are invaluable, and I appreciate them very much. They will meet soon to choose the officers for the 2016-17 Council year. I look forward, as always, to a good year, and thank all the members of the Parish Council for their service.

Another group of special people are those who lead our Children’s Liturgy of the Word each Sunday. You know the drill – we call the boys and girls around the altar, say a few words of encouragement to focus on the Word of God. Those who teach and guide them are: Ellen Buckley, Karen Capadanno, Evelyn Gobstein, Ana Jordan, Lee Juvan, and Sue Mayer. They accompany our precious children through the precious Word of God, helping them to break open the Gospel. I thank them for their dedication and generosity.

Because of some scheduling issues, we are in need of more catechist to teach Children’s Liturgy of the Word. Training is happily offered and the pay is phenomenal (not dollars and cents, but smiles on happy little faces). How about it? Contact Mrs. King in the Religious Education office to volunteer.

With gratitude,
Reverend Dennis J. Vincenzo
