   “Well, Memorial Day weekend is upon us, students have finished their classes, seniors have graduated, the sun is shining, and summer is upon us. It is of course great to be able to enjoy the summer months, to be outdoors, maybe to travel or take a vacation, to celebrate weddings and family events. However, let’s not forget about what is really important – our life of faith with Christ. I pray this summer will be a blessed time for you and your family and friends.
     “Next weekend – the feast of Corpus Christi – The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, we are planning on a Corpus Christi procession immediately after both Masses. We will end back in church for Benediction. This is a public witness of our Faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, and a prayer/blessing for our towns. Hope you can plan on participating.  God Bless.”...Fr. Dave
