God at Work
On May 1, the kitchens will close for about 6 weeks for renovation. On May 20, the Parish Hall will close down for about 4 weeks (less we hope!)for a facelift--new carpet, paint, and some electrical work.
Construction on the education wing is going smoothly. Work is actually ahead of schedule. In the next few weeks we will be able to give tours after masses so you can see how things have changed!

From The Pastor
I’m watching a ballplayer coming up to bat and see him make a motion with his right hand – HE’S CATHOLIC! How do I know? He just made the sign of the cross! I doubt there is any other action that is more connected with being Catholic than the sign of the Cross – and no other prayer (other than the Hail, Mary!) that is considered more “catholic” than the invocation “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
Yet that prayer shouldn’t be just Roman Catholic. The Trinity is a core belief of every Christian. It is also a core mystery. For us a mystery is not something to be solved. It is a statement of Faith that can never be fully explained or completely understood. And as we come to grips with mystery our Faith becomes more than a list of beliefs – it becomes a vibrant active faith. It is this aspect of Faith that often confuses people in our modern “scientific” and “technological” society – a society that wants to and thinks it is finding all the answers.
WRONG! As a person with scientific training myself, I know that science is not just about finding the answers. Just as importantly it is about discovering the next questions. Our journey of Faith is much the same. We seek understanding and as we come to understand one idea we find that more questions arise. That’s the power of the mystery of Revelation and Scripture in which we continually discover new meanings in passages we’ve hears so many times before.
The Trinity is an insight into the mystery of relationship within God that provides insight into how we are called to relate to God. But it is also a lesson for us in our relationships with one another. It is a guide in our continuing journey in discovering the place of love in our lives – lives patterned on and created in the image of God
