Fifth Sunday of Lent

Apr 3, 2022

        Our annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place next Saturday 9 April on the church grounds starting with a snack at 10:45 AM.  Please register children wishing to participate by this Monday using the form on our website so that the Easter Bunny can make sure to have enough eggs to hunt!

       You may know our parishioner Kathryn Welty as the woman who always sits at the Gift Card table… but she has also been quietly coordinating our Social Justice Ministry for many years, organizing many of its projects and volunteers.  Last weekend, at the 43rd Annual Baltimore Archdiocesan Social Ministry Convocation, Kathryn received the 2022 Bishop Francis P. Murphy Recognition Award for her many years of service to our faith community and the wider community.  Congratulations, Kathryn!

       Saint Katharine Drexel co-sponsors a co-ed adult softball team in the Frederick County Summer Church League each year, and the team can always use new members.  It’s also a great way to get to know fellow parishioners and get some exercise during the warmer months.  Please contact Bob Eaton (whose information is elsewhere in the bulletin) if you would like to join the fun this summer– practice starts this month!

       You may know that scouts receive the “Eagle” award after completing a major project which somehow contributes to the life of the community.  Over the last few years, our parish volunteers who weed our rain gardens have been creating a pile of biodegradable refuse in an area that was unable to accept any more contributions and was overflowing.  And so, last Saturday, Jackson Leache took on the challenge of spending the day working with other scouts to clear the area and create a satisfactory space for this natural recycling program.  We are very grateful his leadership.

       Please be aware that, weather permitting, we will begin Mass next weekend with the Blessing of Palm and Procession on the front plaza of the church.

Fr. Keith
