Dear Friends,

This weekend’s Gospel is very poignant for me as I believe it is for all of us. As you know, our faith communities and myself personally have been part of many funerals since the beginning of 2023.

Dear Friends,

Seems like Deja Vous with another weekend taste of winter! My skiing and snow mobile friends are finally happy! With Spring soon to “arrive”, it has been enjoyable to see tulip, crocus and daffodil leaves starting to poke through the soil! Little things that bring us great pleasure.

Our Fourth Week of Lent continues to invite us “BECOME… FOREVER CHANGED.” This week John invites us to reflect on the man born blind. He indeed became someone forever changed but not without some strife. His own parents were weak in acknowledging and supporting their son when questioned by their community because of fear. Nonetheless, the man who had his sight restored persevered in what he experienced and received from ... Read More »

So Mother Nature gitfed us with another taste of winter this past Friday/Saturday! No matter what some may think, the landscape of our “world” looked beautiful with all the snow covering the trees.

Introduced on Ash Wednesday, our parish theme, “BECOME… FOREVER CHANGED” challenged us to reflect on our prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Dear Friends,

I hope that everyone survived the cold snap we experienced. “Winter” certainly has spoiled us so those cold/bitter days were a reality check!

As I mentioned last week our new year has been one with many returning home to God. This past week Jim Lawler and Jim ... Read More »

Dear Friends,

The past several days have been filled for me with reminders of my faith and belief in the promises of eternal life.

Dear Friends,

It was the spring of 1979. I was in the seminary after graduation from R.I.T. in 1977. My heart and soul was in discernment about a possible career change. I was asked to serve at the installation of the new Bishop who was arriving to lead ... Read More »
