I wanted to give you a hodge podge of information in this bulletin article so here I go… Several people have asked how my niece Alexis is doing as she is being treated for cancer. I saw her when I was home this past Monday and she said her radiation treatments should end next Tuesday. She does have a burn mark on the side of her face, but if she wears her hair long it is hard to notice. She has to wait 4-6 months to see if all the cancer is gone because the doctor says it’s too difficult to tell if the cancer is gone right away. Once I get the results I will let you know. She turned 16 on January 2. Thanks for your prayers and please keep praying for her. I prayed hard that God would keep me healthy through the holidays while it seemed that everyone around me was getting sick from something. I made it through the storm. “God is good all the time. All the time God is good!” I was very impressed with all the hard work people did in preparing for Christmas plays, decorating the churches, preparing music, and in showing Christian charity to others. Thanks to all of you who may go unnoticed, but do so much. Thanks to all of you who sent me Christmas cards to remind me what Christmas is all about. The week before Christmas I would almost always have some gift or food item on my back porch when I came back to the rectory and I hope I properly kept track of each one, but if I missed one of you and you don’t receive a Thank You card—just know I appreciated every gift very much and am very grateful- I have lots of future treats in the freezer! I will be taking a vacation the week of January 18-24 so everyone please stay healthy until I get back. I will leave after the 1030am Mass and then return on Saturday January 24 in time for confessions and the 430pm Vigil Mass. That week there will be no weekday Masses or communion services so plan accordingly. To all you people who know as Catholics that you should not be superstitious, but have a hard time letting it go- I will not be attending the National Championship game between Ohio State and Oregon. Go Bucks! I have now spent 6 months at each parish and appreciate every compliment I have received, but know that I still have to get better at certain things so lets keep each other in prayer so that our parishes are not content with the status quo, but always striving to be better and better for the Glory of God!
