From the Desk of Fr. Dennis

Of Many Things

Happy Fathers’ Day!! Father’s Day provides us with an opportunity to honor all of our fathers, and to pray for them. We give thanks to God for all the many ways that they have shaped our lives. Fathers and grandfathers, godfathers, and fathers-to-be, are held in our hearts this day. Some who are reading this do not have (or have not had) a good relationship with their father. Perhaps this was due to estrangement, substance abuse, emotional abuse, domestic violence, or marital discord, or any number of reasons. It might be a good day to pray for healing of memories, or maybe even to see reconciliation. The prayer of the parish family is toward the healing of all relationships in the name of Christ Jesus, the Prince of Peace.

Parish Council News: This week we concluded the Parish Council year, bade farewell to the departing members and seated those newly elected. The council voted for new officers for the year 2016-2017. Phil Thompson was elected as President, and Kathy Longo was elected as Vice President. We thank the departing members for their service: Noreen Corsi, Peggy Gibbons, Rick Thorpe. We welcome the new members: Terri Perrotti, Carole Cipriano and Mary Ann Kelly. A big Thank You is extended to all.
Your spiritual Father,

Reverend Dennis J. Vincenzo
