Pastor's Page - June

Fr. Rick with Amy Blanchard, new
Catholic Community Bulletin Editor


Dear Parishioners,

June marks our eleventh month since our two beloved parishes were yoked.  It has been a true privilege to make this journey with you and I am often reminded of how blessed I am to Pastor two such faithful, dynamic, cooperative and compassionate communities.  Thank you for all that you do – you are a blessing. 

Our combined Pastoral Councils have been a great help to me and together we have established certain priorities for the two communities.  One of those priorities was to have a combined “Catholic Community” bulletin. Thanks to their input, the hard work of Brenda Falusi and Brian Kenny who worked on the logistics and design details of producing a combined layout, I am happy to announce that our first bulletin will be available to you on the weekend of June 11th and 12th. Our new twelve page bulletin will be in color and totally supported by our advertisers, so please thank them for their generosity by patronizing their services and businesses. 

I am further pleased to announce that Amy Blanchard will be the new editor of this combined bulletin.  We are very blessed to have her accepting this new challenge with her special talents and skills.  A thank you goes out to Liz Noble for her dedicated work on the St. Matthew bulletin and Stella Jonas for her work on the St. Bernard bulletin.  We appreciate the fine work you’ve done for your parishes and your God.   

In closing, May God continue to bless our parishes, our faith, our efforts and our journey. 

Fr Rick
