Hodge Podge Time…
The game show “Jeopardy” sometimes has a category called “hodge podge”
which means a mixture of things and is not just focused on a single theme. 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!
God Bless!!!
Fr. Chris

Men of Sacred Heart and St. Joseph's,
As we begin 2015 let us remember Fr. Mike
Schilling in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks
to Fr. Chris for his leadership along with
thanks to Mike Anatra and others who served
as pall bearers. Also a special thanks to Fr.
Chris, Don Alt, Deacons Keller and Horning for
making it possible for the men to celebrate
Mass at our Men’s Fellowship in December.
Our Catholic Men’s Fellowship will meet on the
third Saturday, January 17, 2015 at the
Knights of Columbus room near St. Joseph’s
courtyard at 8:00 am. In November the study
was “Sin.” This month our study will be over
“The Person and Society,” in Brief #s 18901896. All men are welcome as we will continue our time of testimony, study, prayer, and
outreach for our parishes' communities.
Peace, John White—[email protected]
GETTING RIGHT WITH GOD
God’s will for us today exceeds the sum
of all our desires. Come spend the day in
an adult retreat that focuses on “Getting
Right with God” through a process that
includes prayer, scripture study, discussion,
individual reflection, and Eucharistic
Adoration. This event is to be held in
Resurrection Parish Fellowship Hall on
Saturday, January 24th from 10:00 am to
4:30 pm. Breakfast and lunch will be
provided. Please call their parish office at
419-884-0060 to register.
LITURGICAL MINISTERS:
First and foremost,
Thank you for serving at the Lord’s altar. Second,
thank you to those who filled out and returned their
availability forms for the new computer generated
liturgical scheduling program. We are compiling a
liturgical minister phone directory which we hope will
make it easier for everyone to find their own substitute
if/when the need arises. If you do not want your phone
number listed, or you wish to make sure a particular
number is the one on the list (land line vs. cel phone for
example), please write your name and the desired phone
number down and put it in the collection basket before
January 15th. Thank you!
