“I guess we can safely say that summer is upon us. I pray that you may have a good and joyful summer, safe, restful, and productive. While we often take vacations from our normal routine, maybe get to visit somewhere new, or see family and friends, let’s remember that we don’t take vacations from our faith, or from God. Invite Him along on your vacation and always give him time in your life, whatever is happening. The daily Word Among Us magazine is a good way to do that. Summer issues are available in the back of church.
     “I’ll be taking advantage of the summer, and fewer parish activities by making my annual retreat from June 10 through the 14; and taking a vacation from June 25 through July 5 – so no daily Masses those weeks.”...Fr. Dave
