Evening Prayer With Liturgical Ministers

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Readers gathered for an evening of prayer and reflection last Monday, followed by sessions of review and critique of the procedures now in use at weekend masses for reading and distributing Holy Communion.

We're always trying to accommodate to the needs of each mass congregation within the confines of our efficiently arranged seating. Please let us know of any suggestions how Holy Communion could flow more easily (remember that it doesn't need to be quick) or the readers could be more clearly understood.

We have ordered the second group of acoustic sound panels for the church, since the installation of the first group improved the sound in the narthex so greatly. 


Our Ancestors

Modern DNA technology has made it possible to determine with a high degree of certainty the regions our ancestors came from. Sometimes an oddity will even enable us to pinpoint a village or town. 

Scientists frequently announce new discoveries based on DNA analysis and study of population pools. It's amazing to learn about the great waves of human migration across the earth and how each population was shaped by its environment.

Today, as we give thanks for this bountiful land, we acknowledge that we are all pilgrims on a journey and enjoy this beautiful country for but a brief time.

Let us thank God for all the sacrifice and courage which gave birth to us and ask God's help to be the courageous and faithful people who hand on our faith and our land to those who will come after us.
