Dear Friends,
Fr. Dan celebrates his Silver
Jubilee of ordination today. The
noon Mass is his special Mass and it
will be followed by a reception in the
hall afterwards to which you are all
invited. If you are at an earlier Mass,
come back between 1:00 & 3:00
PM, have something to eat and join the celebration. Congratulations Fr. Dan and “ad multos annos”. Thank you for
all you have given and all you will give. May you have
many more years of service in your priesthood.
Next Sunday is Father’s Day and we will have a
Novena of Masses in our Church beginning that day. If
you wish to have your Dad, living or deceased, included
in the novena, there are envelopes in the back of Church.
Put his name on the envelope and drop it in the collection
or at the office. There is also a beautiful card that you can
give your dad. Next week the Dads who come to Mass
will receive a special gift.
Thank you for the warm welcome you gave to our
visiting seminarian Eben MacDonald last Sunday. When
he introduced himself at all the Masses he was touched
by the applause and genuine welcome he felt. He will be
here for eight weeks and the goal is to have him experience all aspects of parish life as part of his education. So
all you leaders of the parish, please invite him to your
meetings and ministry.
~ Fr. McNamara

Summer Scripture Study
What is Wisdom? How Can I Live Wisely?
The Book of Sirach or Ecclesiasticus (meaning ‘church

beginning July 12th at 7:30 p.m., in the Parish Center as
we explore the “biblical guide to living wisely.” Facilitated by John Reeve & Kate Smirnoff, Catholic Bible

reference. The cost is $15, which includes the book and
handouts for the series. Sign-up outside of church after
