Stained Glass

12th Sunday in Ordinary Time - June 20-21, 2009


Today our parish participates in the Peter’s Pence 2009 Collection for the Works of the Holy Father.  Each year the Holy Father asks us to help him provide for our neediest brothers and sisters throughout the world – those who suffer due to war, oppression and natural disasters.  Join the Holy Father in this act of justice and kindness.  Please pray for the Holy Father and give generously to this special appeal.  Extra envelopes are available in the pews.


Part of today’s second collection will be designated for St. Victor’s tuition assistance.  Thank you for your generosity.


Happy Father’s Day!

Father’s Day Spiritual Bouquet Cards are still available on the tables inside the Church. These cards are wonderful for remembering fathers everywhere – living or deceased – on Father’s Day and the remainder of June.  Please place the completed envelope in the collection basket today.

A father’s role in a God-centered family is to polish the lives around him until they shine with a closer reflection of Jesus.

Blessed are the fathers...

Who mix discipline with love; they shall know mercy.

Who give us values with which to live the Christian life; they shall share God’s kingdom.

Who leave us an appreciation of the value and dignity of work; they shall find rest.

Who point out our responsibilities and duties; they will be valued.

Who teach us how to live on earth for heaven; they will know God.

Who show us the meaning of service by example; they shall be served.

Who give us a clear picture of what a father should be; they will live forever.

Whose love for our mother teaches us the importance of loving God and each other; they shall see God.

May God Bless All Of Our Fathers!


PLEASE NOTE:  Beginning this Sunday, June 21st, there will be NO Sunday 5:00 P.M. Mass during the summer.  This Mass will resume on September 13th.


Our Prayers and Congratulations to Bishop Emeritus Pierre DuMaine, who celebrates the 31st anniversary of his episcopal ordination on June 29th. Bishop DuMaine also celebrated the 52nd anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood on Monday, June 15th.

Pope Benedict XVI has declared June 19, 2009 - June 19, 2010 as “The Year of the Priest,” and has asked us all to pray for our priests and priestly vocations.

VOCATION PRAYER: Loving God, help us follow the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary in willingly giving ourselves in service to Your church.  Stir up the grace of priestly and religious vocations in the hearts of many within our community, and send Your Spirit to guide and strengthen them in answering Your call.  Amen.  (Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Chair, Bishop’s Committee on Vocations)
