Welcome


SERVICE AT THE ALTAR. My message today is directed to the young people in our parish. As you have heard the last few weeks, we are trying to build up the ranks of our young altar servers again. When I was last pastor here five years ago, we had young people serving at just about every Mass. Today, we have two regular servers and one occasional.

Of course, we are so grateful for the adults who have stepped up and serve and we will always be grateful for anyone to serve, but there is something special about having young people serve. When you are young, you might wonder how you can contribute to the life of the Church. There is no more powerful way than to serve God at the altar.

I spoke to some of our young parishioners a few weeks ago encouraging the young boys to become altar servers and their Dad mentioned that he was an altar server here in the parish when he was a boy. What a beautiful tradition to follow in the footsteps of a parent.

So, my encouragement is don't just come to Mass, but become a part of it. Serve God, serve the Church, at the altar. Help us make our Masses beautiful by your service. I hope to see you at the training on October 28.

THANK YOUS. I also wanted to say a word about thank you's. Some of you may have received a thank you from me for your contribution to the Sunday collection. I spoke with one parishioner who quickly double checked their checkbook to make sure there weren't too many zeros in there!

So let me tell you about the notes. Every week I ask the people who count the collection to give me the names and addresses of three random contributors. I don't know the amounts that they give, but it is just a small way of me letting you know that the parish, and myself as your pastor, are grateful for what you give, no matter what you give. I would bet that most people have never been thanked for the weekly sacrifice and contribution that they make for the good of our parish. Thank you notes are just my small way of saying thanks!

Hopefully, you'll get yours soon!

Peace, love,
and prayers,

Fr. Tom
