Thanks to Heather and teachers for all their preparation of students; Bishop was very complimentary, especially of how organized everything is with Heather in the wings. Music too, Bishop so much appreciated its beauty, reverential selections so appropriate to the Feast as well as the Sacrament being celebrated.
And, as Bishop remarked to the students and parents, the first church is the home and the degree to which the best preparation will take place will be in the home and provided by the example of the parents. The family that prays together stays together and that extends to the parish family too, but begins at home.
Sacred Heart/St. Jude Parish Mission begins this Sunday evening and continues Monday and Tuesday. Fr. Neil Wack (brother of Bishop Bill Wack and nephew of Joanne Gans) will be our speaker. Fr. Neil is currently the Director of Vocations for the U. S. Province of the Congregation of Holy Cross and was recently the pastor of his home parish, Christ the King in South Bend. Please make time in your busy schedules the next three nights to attend the Mission. We all need a little “Catholic ER!” Fr. John
