Wednesday Update

DSC_0217

Hello all,

I hope all is well.  Today is a busy day and this week is busy but mainly with the usual great activities of parish and school life.

  • First, I hope you didn’t miss the announcement about the concert a week from today.  Read more about a free, inspiring, fun concert being offered at Saint Timothy’s here.  Tony Deblois has been featured on national television and performed internationally.  Join us next Wednesday at 7:00 P.M.
  • Today, we have the morning Bible study, youth group, faith formation, and more.
  • This evening there will be a special opening Mass for grades 7-10 in faith formation.  This allows us to pray for our students and commend the faith formation year into the hands of God.  Anyone is welcome.  Mass will begin shortly after 7:00 P.M.
  • Thank you to those who have pledge for the Marathon already.  The Marathon is this Saturday and our children need your support to achieve their goal of the lock-in.  We pray for your intentions every Friday.  Thanks for your support of our school.
  • Today is the feast of Saint Jerome, one of the most brilliant saints in the Church’s history.  He translated the Bible from Hebrew and Greek into Latin.  He lived a very ascetic, holy life.  Saint Jerome tried to separate himself as much as possible from a worldly life and the temptations around him.  He is famous for saying “Ignorance of Scriptures is ignorance of Christ”.  He is also a helpful saint to remember for those who struggle with a bad temper or impatience.  Saint Jerome was known for both of these, but he was able to become a saint because he recognized his weakness and strove to overcome it each day.
  • Bobby, our teaching parish seminarian, will be up at the parish this afternoon and evening as well.  He visits the parish two or three weekdays a month and one weekend a month.  It’s always great to have him.  He will be ordained a deacon this year and a priest next year.  I’m eagerly looking forward to his ordination so he can begin preaching.  Every year, the seminarians are given a special focus for their life in the parish and school.  Bobby’s focus this year is on administration.  He will learn in a special way about the administrative details in the life of a priest, such as finances, personnel, management, meetings, committees, fundraising, facilities, and more.  Thanks for your prayers and support for him and our own seminarians.

I hope your week is going well.  Let’s continue to pray for each other as a parish.

Father Meyer
