Please keep in mind – as the school year draws to a close – our 8th Grade Graduates and all of the graduates in the parish as they step forward into new areas of life – may the Holy Spirit guide and protect them and may they seek the Lord at all times and in new endeavors.
This time of year also usually begins the “wedding season” – we have quite a few weddings coming up this Spring, Summer and Fall – please be sure to pray for these couples as they too embark on a new way of life, sharing the joys of married life. The Sacrament of Marriage is a beautiful witness to human love which is meant to reflect the love of Christ for His Church – a love that is faithful, permanent and fruitful. May the couples finalizing their wedding preparations always bear witness to this love.
As you have seen, this year I was writing a series of bulletin articles on the Sacraments. There are a couple of more to come treating the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, but I was not able yet to do articles on the Sacrament of Marriage nor of the Sacrament of Holy Orders – I plan to complete the series once fall begins.
Finally, a reminder that everyone is invited to join our 8th Graders and First Communicants at the Annual May Crowning, taking place this Thursday at 6:30 PM. Following the May Crowning we will process to the new statue in the Atrium Gardens and dedicate the statue.
