Recognition of a job well done … 08-Apr-2018
From The Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
Years ago a King was celebrating his birthday. Many of his loyal subjects came to congratulate him and offer gifts. A diver came in and offered him a pearl. The king knew to acquire the pearl a diver must risk his life and some almost died trying to accomplish this goal. The king was moved by not just the gift but by the dedication the diver had to acquire the gift. The king saw the pearl and the efforts of the diver as the total gift.
The long hours of my staff and volunteers as they prepared the parish for Lent, Holy Week, and Easter celebrations are special gifts of love. The celebrations were outstanding. Thank you to Patrick Barrett, our Choir, Terry O’Shea, and the Voices of Praise for musically lifting up our hearts; to the Lectors, Altar Servers, Eucharistic Ministers, Greeters and Ushers for making the celebrations run smoothly; our decorating committee who outdid themselves this year – the Church is beautiful. A special thank you to my staff: Suzanne Pionessa, Kim Boyer, Rick Donovan, Patrick Barrett, and Wayne Ludescher who are always working behind the scenes to make our parish shine. Finally thank you to all who attended, because without you all of this would have been in vain. It is our hope that we were able to strengthen your relationship with Jesus Christ.
May this special time with Jesus help us to see as Jesus sees, so we will not be fooled by the illusions of this world and may Jesus enable us to clearly hear His voice.
In Easter joy,
