It definitely feels like summer is here. As I write
this I am looking outside at the green grass and
tress and beautiful flowers as well as the bright
sunshine. I enjoy this time of the year to slow
down just a little although as usual we have several
projects that we are trying to finish up. The
Knights of Columbus are still working on the renovation of the Convent. We are in touch with two
communities of sisters and they are planning to
come up for a visit sometime this summer. We are
trying to finish up the convent by the beginning of
August. So far most of the work has been donated
labor. We are trying to get the floor finished up and
the interior painting. The exterior painting is done
and the building looks new like it did in 1950 when
the Dominican Sisters moved in.
One of the other projects is the new chapel. Magnum Construction has been working on it and has
told us that they hope to be done by September.
That would be fantastic if they could finish it by
We are also doing some re-construction in the gym
area trying to give more room for spectators during
the games. The tables and chairs and other materials that were in the gym area are being stored in the
school shed.
The Hispanic council of the Knights of Columbus
are also renovating Frank’s old shop and are using
that shed to keep their things.
There are more painting jobs that are being done
around the campus and of course we are busy
cleaning up the classrooms, etc. in preparation for
another school year.
In the Church I am looking at adding some metal
work to liven up the altar rail and perhaps we will
June 14, 2015
also do something with the Stations of the Cross to
make them show up a little better. In the small
chapel we also have some ideas of how to renovate
that space to make it more attractive. By October
of this year it would be great if we were finished
with all these things that I have listed.
I would like to thank all of you who have increased
your weekly donation to the Church. I had asked
everyone to try to double what they were giving
before and many of you have done so. It has made
a huge difference in the total amount each Sunday.
Please continue to give generously to the support
of our parish family. Make it a sacrificial gift like
the poor widow did whom Jesus praised. He saw
that although she gave only a few cents she gave
more than everyone else because she gave form her
needs, not just form her surplus.
I am happy that Father Juan Pablo and myself were
not transferred this year. We are enjoying serving
as your priests. Bishop Slattery will be turning in
his retirement letter this August as he will be 75
years of age. He doesn’t know at this point whether
he will be requested to work for another year or so
or whether the Pope will accept his retirement immediately. At any rate, things are a little bit up in
the air at this point as Bishop doesn’t want to make
too many changes since he is so close to finishing
up his time with us as our Bishop.
I hope that summer will be a rejuvenating time for
each of you and that you will have the opportunity
to enjoy some of the beauty of God’s creation.
Take care and God bless you always.

Go, Share Serve
Pope Francis offers three simple ideas
for evangelization: “Go, do not be
afraid, and serve.”
If you know the truth about life, love, marriage, and family, share it! To be silent “would be
like withholding oxygen from a flame that was
burning strongly,” as Pope Francis put it in Rio de
Janeiro. “Faith is a flame that grows stronger the
more it is shared and passed on, so that everyone
may know, love and confess Jesus Christ, the Lord
of life and history.” (World Youth Day, 2013)
We must share! And we needn’t be afraid.
Pope Francis said, “Some people might think: ’I
have no particular preparation, how can I go and
proclaim the Gospel?’” But you don’t need a theology degree to say something true and welcoming
about the Church. Likewise, God doesn’t always
call the equipped; he equips the called. And God is
calling you. Give of yourself. Speak from experience. Walk with someone. Lead them to the wellspring of eternity. That’s not done by coercion but
by patient, loving, and compelling conversation,
friendship, and true encounter.
Last, during that homily about our missionary work in the world, Pope Francis called us to
serve. Serve the Lord even in your conversations
about elections, even in conversations it would be
much easier not to have. You might not convince
those who think differently that the Church is
right, but you may earn their respect and a second
look. That’s what Pope Francis has been doing his very life is a model.

A wedding celebrated in the
Eastern Church has a form that was
fixed a thousand years ago. In the
West, our story is more complicated by constant
change and variation. As the world’s structures
tottered in the ninth century, bishops and priests
stepped into the void left by collapsing civil structures. For the first time, marriage was referred to
as a sacrament, and wedding ceremonies were to
be in public (assuring the free consent of the bride)
after an investigation of the couple by a priest. The
custom of the blessing of the bridal room diminished, and was finally forbidden in 1012 by the
Council of Rouen, although it continued for centuries. In the diocese of Perigueux in France, a ritual
from 1827 had the parish priest clad in surplice
and stole sprinkling the bridal couple as they stood
modestly in their pajamas by the wedding bed.
Next the bed and all those present were sprinkled
too! That’s a tradition that few Americans, either
the betrothed or the clergy, are ready to revive!

All is Grace
On Sundays in Ordinary Time, the Old Testament reading is selected for the light it sheds on
the day’s Gospel. Today, Ezekiel sees God lifting
up the lowly tree and making the withered tree
bloom. So in the second parable of today’s Gospel,
Jesus encourages us by promising that, as fragile
seeds grow into an abundant harvest, and the tiny
mustard seed into a hearty plant, so God will grow
the kingdom from small beginnings to an instrument of salvation for all. In the first parable, the
land yields fruit “of its own accord.” (Mark 4:28).
Not only is the initiative God’s, but the parable
teaches that the seed’s growth, though invisible at
first, is actually unstoppable! To be sure, those who
depend on the impressive or dramatic in order to be
convinced or encouraged will be disappointed in
the slow unfolding of the kingdom that Jesus announces. But for those who do accept the kingdom,
all is grace, and that grace is certain.
Though the second reading is not coordinated with either the first reading or Gospel on
these Sundays, today’s is thematically appropriate.
Saint Paul argues that our experience of God’s
trustworthiness thus far should make us a people of
undaunted courage and unshakeable faith. But at
the same time Paul warns that faith should also
make us aware of our responsibility to do good.

Del Párroco:
Hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,
Definitivamente se ve que llego el verano. Mientras escribo esta carta estoy mirando afuera donde
todo esta verde, veo los árboles y las flores hermosas y el sol esta brillando. Disfruto de esta temporada cuando podemos descansar un poco aunque
hay proyectos que estamos tratando de cumplir.
Los Caballeros de Colon todavía están trabajando
en la renovación del Convento. Estoy en comunicación con dos comunidades de hermanas y están
planeando visitarnos este verano. Esperamos terminar con la renovación en agosto. Todo ha sido
trabajo donado. Ahora estamos trabajando en el
piso y pintando el interior. Ya hemos terminado
con pintando el exterior y el edificio se ve como
era en 1950 cuando llegaron las Hermanas Dominicanas.
Uno de los otros proyectos es la nueva capillita. La
compañía Magnum Construction esta trabajando
en esto y dicen que esperan tenerla terminada en
También estamos trabajando en el gimnasio, tratando de hacer más cupo para espectadores. Las
mesas y las sillas que estaban guardadas en el gimnasio ahora están guardadas en el cobertizo de la
El grupo hispano de los Caballeros de Colon están
renovando el viejo cobertizo de Frank y están
usándolo para guardar sus cosas.
Tenemos proyectos de pintar en varios lugares y
claro estamos ocupados limpiando los salones de
clases en preparación por otro año escolar.
En la Iglesia estoy pensando en añadiendo arte de
metal en las barandillas del altar para hacerlas más
bonitas y tal vez vamos a hacer algo con los puestos del Vía Crucis para que se pueden verlos mejor. Estoy pensando tambien en unas renovaciones
en la capillita para que se ve mejor. Quisiera tener
todos estos proyectos terminados en octubre.
Quisiera agradecer a todos ustedes que han aumentado sus donaciones a la Iglesia. Había pedido que
doblen sus donaciones y muchos de ustedes lo han
hecho. Ha hecho una diferencia enorme en la colecta cada domingo. Favor seguir donando generosamente a su familia parroquial. Deben hacer un
regalo sacrificial como hizo la viuda. Jesús vio que
ella dio solamente unos centavos pero dio más que
los otros porque dio de lo que necesitaba, no de lo
que sobro.
Me alegra que ni el Padre Juan Pablo ni yo fuimos
transferidos este año. Estamos muy contentos sirviendo como sus sacerdotes. El Obispo Slattery va
a cumplir los 75 años este agosto y mandara su
carta de jubilación al Papa. El todavía no sabe si el
Papa aceptara su jubilación o si va a trabajar un
año adicional. Por eso el Obispo no quiso hacer
cambios grandes como esta acercando el fin de su
tiempo como nuestro Obispo.
Ojala que este verano sea una temporada de renovación para cada uno de ustedes y que tendrán
tiempo de disfrutar de algunas de las bellazas de
las creaciones del Señor.
Cuídense todos y Dios bendiga a todos ustedes.

IMPORTANTE: Decir NO a Charlie, Charlie
Recientemente un nuevo juego nombrado
Charlie, Charlie ha ganado mucha popularidad en
el Internet. Hay variaciones, pero los elementos en
común son el uso de lápices y el invocar al espíritu
de un (supuestamente) fallecido niño llamado
Charlie para que él contesta preguntas.
Aunque esto parece una tonta perdida de
tiempo, hay peligro grave en este juego. Las Escrituras nos advierten en Deuteronomio 18:10-13 de
no invocar a los espíritus ni consultar a los muertos, que este es repugnante en los ojos del Señor.
Jugando un juego como Charlie, Charlie es
un pecado grave. Los que violan esta advertencia,
aunque solamente para divertirse, están invitando
a los demonios a interactuar con ellos. Tal vez esto
no ocurre inmediatamente ni a todos pero cuando
si ocurre es muy grave. Los que han jugado este
juego deben confesarse lo más pronto posible.
