Pastor’s Corner, August 1, 2021

Summer Study Series: You have a great opportunity to learn the solid foundations for your Catholic faith. I want you to attend the summer study series on Faith and Reason. It runs from June 22nd thru August. The sessions will be held each Tuesday evening from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Parish Center. The parish study series is especially designed for inquirers into the Catholic faith and anyone who is struggling to harmonize the Catholic faith with reason and science. You will be walked through proofs demonstrating the existence of God.
Everyone is welcome to attend any or all sessions. And, I ask that you invite any non-Catholic family members or friends to come with you.
The series will be facilitated by our own Deacon Tracy Jamison, PhD, Professor of Philosophy at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary and School of Theology. I would really like many of you to attend these sessions. Our Catholic Faith is under attack in the culture. This will strengthen your ability to defend
the Catholic Faith.

Major Church Beautification

The estimated cost of tile, its installation, and the refurbishing of the pews is $330,000. Since donations to the Tile Floor Fund have been so generous, we will discontinue the second collection as of August 7-8.
The stone tile floor will be installed in sections. And, while this is being done, the pews will be refurbished. So, there will be some changes in seating arrangements throughout the project. I will keep you advised. Due to Covid related delays the installation of the tile has been delayed. As soon as we have a start date, I will let you know.
