Pastor's Message


Peace and blessings!

 

Wednesday, August 17th, we will gather at 5:30 at Grace Lutheran Church for a pot luck dinner and tour of their church. Everyone is invited to attend. Grace Lutheran is at the corner of Blythe and Rt. 64. Thanks to all who joined us Aug. 10th at our church for a dinner and tour.

We launched our new parish website on August 1st. There is still work to be done and pictures to be added. We are excited about this new look and its content. Check it out when you get time. 

Monday, September 5th, Bishops Jugis and Curlin will offer a special Mass of Thanksgiving for the gift of Bless Teresa of Calcutta, who will be canonized Sept. 4th. The Mass will be at 11:00 at Our Lady of Assumption Church in Charlotte. All are invited.

Friday I will be leaving for a week vacation to see my Mom and family in Philadelphia.
