Dear Parish Family

Dear Parish Family

I hope your summer has been enjoyable so far.  I have just returned from my three weeks of vacation in Kitchener with my family, and Fr. Lawrence has left for Toronto to enjoy some family time and vacation until August 12.  Fr. Sean Wenger has moved in to our rectory and Fr. Jerry has moved over to the rectory at St. Mary’s.  So, when Fr. Lawrence returns, we will have three of our four household members accounted for.  The only missing person is Chris Zettel, our seminarian intern for this year.  There are a lot of things in boxes around here, what with all the moving going on!

Fr. Lawrence and I are very grateful to be staying put.  We are looking forward to having Chris with us this year.  Marcus Schonnop is going to be ordained to the Diaconate this September in Detroit, and will be a priest, God willing, by next spring.  Miguel Perez will follow suit the next year.  Thank you for all of the prayers and support that you show for our seminarians.  They really appreciate it.

Fr. Lawrence and I are pleased to announce that we have our full roster of seven parishioners to make up our parish council which begins meeting this fall.  Our goals will involve long range planning and visioning.  Thanks to the members for saying yes to serving their parish in this capacity.

The next bulletin will be after Labour Day on September 7/8.  Until then, enjoy this next month of summer and all the blessings that God desires to pour out upon you and your loved ones.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Tim
