Fr. Joe's Bulletin


The Pastor's Pen

August 4, 2019

Friday was the last day of CTK School Summer Camp, and you can see a photo history of it on Face Book. This was the third year for the camp, a response to families’ requests. Over the course of 9 weeks, 114 children participated, some every day, some 3 days a week, and some drop ins. In the course of 52 weeks, the number of weeks when the school building has no students is 2 in the summer, barely a week at Christmas because we have “Winter Camp”, then one week for spring break.
We intentionally make good use of this huge resource, our school.

All school families received Pflaum Gospel Weeklies for the summer. It includes a Question of the Week, and a Family Prayer. I encourage families to use it to prepare for Sunday Mass, and refer to it through the week.

I was pleased to be back in time last Sunday evening to attend Father Tom McDermott’s celebration in Roesch Hall of his 40th anniversary of ordination. Thanks to the Altar and Rosary Society leading this. Nicely done, as always.

I am pleased to see the summer produce on the Farmers Table in the vestibule. God is good! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for the donations that will go Holy Family Food Pantry. My two tomato plants … the cherries are producing, the other is holding green tomatoes, soon to be red, I hope.

Have a blessed week!
Fr. Joe
