    May  28, 2017

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

    This Sunday, we welcome Auxiliary Bishop Christian Riesbeck, CC, who presides at the confirmation of a number of our young parishioners at the 12:15 p.m. Mass.  At the celebration, we are also welcoming parishioners from Saint Clement parish and Saint Catherine of Siena parish (Metcalfe).  Accompanying the confirmands from Saint Catherine is their pastor, Fr. Anthony Hannon.
     
    Next Sunday is Pentecost Sunday which concludes the Easter season.  In the liturgy of the Church, following Evening Prayer II, the Paschal Candle is removed from the sanctuary and will be present for the celebration of Baptisms, at which time the candles of the newly baptized are lit from it.  The Paschal Candle is also used during funeral Masses, standing near the casket or cremated remains, as a sign of our faith in the resurrection, the possibility of eternal life for those who have died.

    - Fr. Kevin
