Dear Parish Family:
Today we celebrate Trinity Sunday as we honor one God in three Divine Persons. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are a distinct and holy community. They are a oneness that is a deep mystery. We are called to share that oneness. Our parish is not just an organization or a list of registered members or even a group of local Catholics. Our parish is a community! We are a community of faith, hope, and love! On Pentecost Sunday we all saw that. Let us strive together to make that a reality not just on special days or occasions, but each and every day.
In this season of graduations, conGRADulations to everyone who has graduated this year from pre-school, kindergarten, grade school, high school, college and graduate school. Well done! Let’s keep all of our graduates in our prayers as they begin the next part of their journey.
PRAYER FOR GRADUATES
we thank you for all graduates of the Class of 2023.
You have blessed them during their years in school
with wisdom, friendships, and skills.
You continue to challenge them to make this world
a better place because of their education.
Help them to look forward to their next steps:
continuing in their education or entering the work world. Particularly help those who are seeking employment
to find a job suitable to their education.
Give them faith and a sense of purpose in their next steps.
Show them how to serve others in effective ways.
And may they be always be aware in everything they do
that they will find fulfillment in doing your will,
that you will be with them always,
and that you will bring to completion the good work
you have begun in them. Amen.
A million thanks to everyone who brought red geraniums to decorate for Pentecost. The altar looked amazing! Thanks, too, to those who planted them this past week.
Special thanks to Jerry Grimme who coordinated the lighting of our American Flag display for Memorial Day weekend. Jerry set the lights up and made sure they were on each evening.
Have a good week everyone!
Love and prayers,
Father Neil Sullivan
