July/August 2017

Merry Christmas! That has a wonderful ring to it! But, in reality, our minds are not set in the Christmas mode yet. We love Christmas, the warm feelings, the well-spoken Christmas Carols, the fellowship, Christmas Cards, Christmas parties, and the giving to others — all celebrating Jesus’ birth. All of these are part of our […]

April 2017

Lent is always a thought provoking time of the year. The realities of life all come into focus during Lent. We have just finished celebrating the Jesus’ birth, with all the enthusiasm and joy possible. We welcome the infant Jesus into our lives, and celebrate his childhood, with very little to go on. We tell […]

July/August 2016

Summer 2016 is upon us!  The warmth and power of summer is seen in all of nature.  From the roaring thunderstorms, to the dazzling heat and the electrified lightning, we are all affected.  We are blessed to be faithful people who can tolerate the changes in God’s creation, but we usually don’t do it quietly.  […]

June 2016

I am always amazed at the energy people pull together when vacation time arrives!  Many folks plan all year for the “sacred” time in the summer when they can be away.  It is a time when we live out our fantasies, a time when we work on our “bucket list”, and a time when we […]

May 2016

May is the month when we expect some “turn-arounds”!  We hope/expect that the weather will change and warm days will become the norm.  We expect that tulips, daffodils, and many other plants will pop through the ground and explode in our gardens with color and fragrance.  We also expect to spend time doing the “normal […]

Easter has come and gone, yet we can still hear the sounds of Holy week and Easter morning.  Thank you to the Choir, the many liturgists, instrumentalists, and others who made Holy Week and Easter a grand celebration.  The thrill of Resurrection captivated us for a day or more, and now we focus on preparing […]

March 2016

2016 has been a different type of year!  It started with the warm weather we experienced up to a week ago, the lack of snow (until the week of February 7) and the evolving bounce back that has been necessary in order to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community and world.  The […]

November 2015

November is understood to be the month of “thanksgiving”. It is the time of year when most of us take a moment to consider the plight of those less fortunate. Giving thanks has been part of our tradition since the beginning of life. People pause during November to consider how we can help our neighbors, […]

September 2015

It is hard to believe, but summer is almost over! It seems like it just began, but reality reminds us that Labor Day weekend is a declaration that fall is coming and a “new year” will start at school and in the life of the Church. As with all other churches and organizations, we look […]
