Here’s a complaint I was thrilled to get. A number of parishioners asked why the Daily Mass readings were no longer put in the weekly bulletin.
In order to save space for other announcements and the pastor’s “bagging-on”, the Scripture citations were omitted. Not anymore! You’ll find them listed – happily!! – knowing that folks depend on them for their daily prayer and meditation!
I want to thank the crew who came and prepared a room for Fr. Basa this past week. Your time and talents got the job done. He’ll be thrilled to move in. Thanks also to the ladies who brought food for the remodeling crew on those afternoons.
PLEASE take note that next weekend, Memorial Day weekend, there are the following changes:
1. Fr. Schindler will be at 4:30, 8:30 (SM), and 11:30 Masses during his vacation.
2. NO 1:00 Mass in Spanish here; because of a Pilgrimage to Windsor, OH for Mass
3. Memorial Day 9:30am Mass in St. Bernard Cemetery (weather permitting, i.e. no rain clouds). Bring a chair!
These events are for next weekend only. Thanks!
The Knights of Columbus led a number of other volunteers last weekend to spruce up the Parish Grounds. Wow!! They spent hours mulching and planting for the spring and summer seasons. KUDOS to all who came and GOT INVOLVED!
Our thanks also go to the men and women who cleaned St. Bernard Cemetery two weeks ago. We’ll have Memorial Day Mass there this year.
This week we remembered the life and example of Sts. Isidore and Maria, a farming couple from Spain, who lived during the lifetime of St. Bernard (1090-1153). We cannot forget all the people in our own time who work tirelessly to put food on our table, including the immigrant farm workers in our own and neighboring counties. Nor can we forget all our benefactors and volunteers in the Akron area who contribute to our three Hunger Programs. God bless the work of their hands! Let us pray for them at meal time this week.
Thanks to those who updated their parish records. This is the last week the INFORMATION FORM will be in the bulletin. Please fill it out so we have you in our records. Peace, Fr. Dan
