The Katharine Konnection

       We have been blessed for many years as a faith community with a talented team of pastoral associates who are very dedicated to their ministry.  For all of us, I express deep appreciation to Brian McCrohan, Ana Maria Alvarado, Theresa Anderson, and Alexis Zabsonre for their generous service to our faith community throughout the past year.  A listing of ministry responsibilities for the coming year is included this week as a bulletin insert so that you know who to contact for various programs.  

       Monday morning the children will start arriving for Vacation Bible School, an annual summer ritual here that takes lots of organization and volunteers.  Many thanks to all the adults and teens who have offered to help, and special gratitude to Theresa Anderson who does a great job in pulling it all together.  Please pray that our children may grow in their love God and closeness to Jesus during this special summer week that we provide for them.

       Monday 1 July starts a new fiscal year for our parish.  Each spring our Pastoral Council discerns parish goals for the new fiscal year, to guide its work and set its agenda– and so these goals for 2022-23 are listed on an insert in this bulletin.  Please contact our Pastoral Council President Dan Kmiecik (or any of the other Pastoral Council members) if you have questions or comments about the goals for this coming year.

       It has been so impressive to see (details in the bulletin) the results of your generosity this year, as we have now reached 120% of our parish goal in the Annual Appeal.  Because we receive a rebate of 40% of every dollar over our goal, our designated recipients (St. Michael Indian School, the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, and our parish outreach to immigrants) will be especially blessed this year by your generosity.

       Please note that the location for our next Drexel Voyager luncheon on 7 July has been changed to the Ragin’ Reef.  You may sign up at the Welcome Center.
