This weekend, we are celebrating the coming of the Holy Spirit, Pentecost, in our domestic churches. The Feast of Pentecost is the birthday of the Church. It is the day that the apostles after receiving the Holy Spirit went out and started to preach the Gospel. The promise of the Holy Spirit was given to them by Jesus himself.
We too, through the Sacrament of Confirmation, are given this same outpouring of the Holy Spirit.....making those who have been Baptized and Confirmed, Missionary Disciples.
In the attached God, Family, Friends please see note about Bishop Pates inviting all whose Confirmation has been postponed due to the Coronavirus to join him
for a special Mass at 2:00 PM on Sunday, May 31st! If this applies to your family, please invite your sponsor and loved ones to join with you as well.
This is quite a unique opportunity to gather with our Bishop. Here is a link to Bishop Pates' Confirmation Mass on Sunday:
We have extended our "early bird" discounted R.E. fees until June 15th. I thank those famlilies who have returned their children's enrollment forms. We also are in need of volunteers to share our faith with our young people.....perhaps the Holy Spirit is moving YOU to become a catechist or classroom aide. Become a Missionary Disciple...the children are shining examples, and you will gain faith and knowledge from them.
Our Mother of Good Counsel, Pray for Us!
