FATHER ABEL’S COLUMN – JULY 5TH, 2015

Christopher-Bethge-275x375Our Parish is so very excited about the recent ordination of Fr. Chris Bethge and his classmates to the Sacred Priesthood. Our Parish has benefited much by the presence of Fr. Chris during his stay with us all, but especially to our young people who have spent much time with him in the past year. We are going to have a special Mass of Thanksgiving for Fr. Chris on Saturday, July 11th at 5pm Mass. All are welcome to attend this special Mass.

Also, this coming Monday we will begin the renovation of our Chapel. The diocese has given me the permission to use $100,000.00 of the money that was left to the parish by a very generous person. The tabernacle will be moved to where the Blessed Sacrament was originally. We will be getting a marble Altar, a marble Ambo and a marble Presider’s Chair that will match. The rug in the sacristy will be moved and placed with tile. The pews will be done as well.

We use the chapel daily and I hope you will enjoy our new chapel as a place of prayerful atmosphere to pray to almighty God! The renovation will go from July 5- August 14

All weekday Masses will be held in Church.
