PASTOR'S PIECE 

 


Dear Friends,

 

A MESSAGE FROM BISHOP BURBIDGE ON IMMIGRATION 


Public Policy and Immigration. Our Catholic teaching affirms the right of governments to defend their borders and to regulate migration.  In the United States, however, a combination of deficiencies in our existing immigration laws and inconsistent enforcement of those laws has produced an untenable situation.  There are millions of undocumented workers who have lived and worked here for years, begun families, and made the U.S. their home, but have no viable pathway to citizenship. 


Statement of Bishop Burbidge in Response to Shooting in Alexandria on June 14 

I am profoundly saddened by the tragic shooting at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria earlier this morning.  Today I call on the faithful in the Diocese of Arlington and all people of good will to join me in prayer for Rep. Steve Scalise and the others who were wounded in this senseless attack.  May the Lord grant them swift healing and consolation.  As we pray for God ’s mercy, we also ask Mary, our Mother, to intercede for us, so that our world will know the peace of her Son. 


Today as the Church invites us to begin a novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I ask Catholics of our diocese to pray the novena with a specific intention for peace.


LECTOR NEEDED AT THE 11 AM MASS 


We need another Lector for the 11 AM Sunday Mass.  Please have any interested persons contact Fr. Tuck, grinnellhorace@gmail.com.  Training will be provided. 


THANK YOU 

The Knights would like to thank the Parishioners for their contributions in support of KOVAR and Special Olympics.  We collected $269.45 in the Poor Box, and the Knight’s will provide the additional funds to allow us to give $200 to each organization.  Thanks again for everyone’s generosity in support!
