Memo from Msgr. Raun - Monday, June 15th, 2020

My dear family,

Greetings in the Lord Jesus!

WAYS TO HOLD ON TO JOY IN TROUBLED TIMES Meditate on the Titles of the Lord

A perusal of the Hebrew names of God in the Old Testament, along with their English meanings, shows us the vast breadth of His characteristics.
The names all reflect his intrinsic traits and ways He relates to us. God is the Lord Most High, Everlasting, and Almighty.

These names assure us of His ability to withstand any onslaught—and are the foundation we build our security upon. He is our Healer, Protector, Provider, Shepherd, and the Strong One Who Sees.

What comfort these names bring us as we contemplate them. The Lord is Peace, The Lord is There, and The Lord My Banner all help us know we are not left hanging by a thread—we have a Champion who will take care of us.

“Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!" 1 Chronicles 16:10

THE WEEKEND went well in the parish, with more people at Mass, but none of the Masses reaching our 250 capacity. Remember the following:

1. All Masses - just show up. But remember that we have to close off the church when we reach 250 people in attendance.
2. Wear a mask.

3. Be prepared to receive Communion in the hand.

IF WE REACH 250 PEOPLE AT A MASS, and a person arrives after that, they will be invited to come to another Mass, or they can go to their car and wait, and they will be allowed to join the Communion line at the end of Mass. Together with this, we are now broadcasting every Sunday Mass on our new low-wattage FM transmitter, at 106.5 FM. You can receive this signal from anyplace in the parking lot of the church. If you still do not feel comfortable going into the church for Mass, you can listen to it in your car and at the end of Mass come in to receive Holy Communion!

Weekdays: 8 am and 5  pm
Saturday: 8 am and 2:30 pm


YOUTH NEWS: Tomorrow night we begin our celebrations of the Sacrament of Confirmation in our parish. The Archbishop has delegated each pastor to confirm his parishioners. We will have three groups be confirmed over the next three weeks. Please pray for all those who will be receiving the Sacrament of the Holy Spirit!

CONGRATULATIONS: Jaleigh Rose Wheeler was  baptized Saturday, June 6th. God's blessings upon her and her family!

OUR PRAYER FOR THE DAY: June is the month of the Sacred Heart....
Lord, you deserve all honor and praise,
because your love is perfect and your heart sublime.
My heart is filled to overflowing with gratitude
for the many blessings and graces you have bestowed upon me and those
whom I love.
Forever undeserving, may I always be attentive
and never take for granted the gifts of mercy and love
that flow so freely and generously from your Sacred Heart.
Heart of Jesus, I adore you.
Heart of Jesus, I praise you.
Heart of Jesus, I thank you.
Heart of Jesus, I love you forever and always.

I send you my fatherly blessing, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen !
