Thoughts from the Heart

Dear  Brothers and Sisters,

     Lent is in its final days and we all need to make the most of this time in preparation for the Great 50 Days of Easter.  The 40 days of Lent lead us to the 50 days of Easter. 

    As we have prayed, fasted, and given alms in Lent, so do we rejoice and celebrate the resurrection not for one day, but for 50! 

    If you have not had the chance to go to the sacrament of reconciliation yet, there is still time. The Deanery penance service is this coming Monday night, March 19th at 7:30 p.m. at St. John’s Church in Hillsdale, and of course the usual time on Saturday,  or on the weekdays a half hour before the noontime mass, or you can always make a personal appointment with me, or my brother priests. 

    Let’s all make the most of what remains of the 40 days of Lent, so we might all have a glorious Easter season together.

Faithfully yours in the Love of Jesus, 

         Fr. Paul 


From the Pastor’s Desk

       Please join me in making your pledge to this year’s We are Living Stones campaign to benefit the corporal and spiritual works of our archdiocesan church. 

      Our goal is $36,099, and we need each of you to consider making a pledge to help us make our goal. It’s a great way to give alms this Lent.

      Everyone had a great time at our St. Patrick/St. Joseph Dinner dance, and my thanks Carlo Camporeale, and his committee and our wonderful Knights of Columbus Council #5819 for all they did to make this, what I hope will be an annual social event for our parish family. Happy St. Patrick’s and St. Joseph’s Day to all!

      Our Lenten Soup Supper is next Saturday Evening, March 24th, following the 5:00 p.m. Mass, right here at our parish.    All are welcome!!
