INDEBTED – Your Parish Staff is amazing. I want to publicly express my gratitude to the office staff (Cheri, Ralph, Patsy, Will, Jim, Lisa, Paul, and of course, Fr. Frank) for responding to your needs in my absence. My heart also goes out to the many Volunteer leaders of our Hunger Programs (Helen, Pam, Tom et al., Smiths and Ayers) who helped me see that everything is in good hands. And finally to Fr. Norm, Fr. Tom, Fr. Jaime, Fr. Milton, and Deacons Ray and Miguel who helped with Masses.

Thank You! Thank You! The Lord bless you!

 

PARISH ORGAN FUND – “In the Latin Church the pipe organ is to be held in high esteem, for it is the traditional musical instrument which adds a wonderful splendor to the Church’s ceremonies and powerfully lifts up man’s mind to God and to higher things.” [Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy #120, December 1963.] In our efforts to restore our St. Bernard church pipe organ, volunteers drove to Memphis, TN this week to purchase and transport new parts for 85-90% of our current organ. A donor who shall be anonymous for the time being has helped us obtain these parts. But now begins the financial drive to rebuild and restore this instrument. A dollar amount (goal) will be forthcoming. This church was built for worship that ‘powerfully lifts up our minds and hearts to God’. Let’s do this!!
