Thank you to all who attended the dedication of our new sculpture, “Lest We Forget,” last Sunday. Special thanks go to the Honor Garden Committee: Chair – Tom Schmersahl, Tom D’Arcy, Homer Ahr, Bill Bedortha, Paul Gosselin, Dick Heilman, Phil Schoch, Bill Trembly, Matthew Figun and Steve Varga. We also thank Jesse Castañeda of J & C Granite, for installing the granite base, our architect, Brent Baker of Studio 16:19, the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus members, Mary Williams and the choir members, and the WWICS members who hosted the reception.
We have had a good response so far and lots of interest in the sponsorship opportunities for our Armed Forces Honor Garden, both from parishioners and others in the community. Some of the items have a limited number available, so please call the church office or talk to Father Rubén if you are interested. Honor Garden brochures and information sheets/order forms concerning the paving stones are available in the church entryways.
While Father Rubén is away next weekend, we welcome back Father Bob Cary, CSP, who will be celebrating all three Masses on Saturday and Sunday, June 27 & 28.
Next weekend, June 27 & 28, our diocese will take up the Peter’s Pence Collection, which provides Pope Francis with the funds he needs to carry out his charitable works around the world. The proceeds benefit the most disadvantaged: victims of war, oppression and disasters. Join our Holy Father as a witness of charity to those who are suffering.
