The Katharine Konnection

Fr. Keith’s Korner

        There is often confusion concerning the topic of church annulments in relation to the Sacrament of Marriage, and an upcoming presentation at a nearby parish may provide some clarification.  Especially if you yourself may be seeking an annulment in the future, consider this session at Saint Joseph Church (Hagerstown) on 28 September.  A bulletin insert has more details.

       Our parish is participating in the local 40 Days for Life observance starting on 28 September.  There are various ways to participate in encouraging a culture of life (starting with simply praying!) and so please use the contact information that is included in the bulletin to become more involved.  Thanks to Rosemary Piraino for being our parish coordinator.

       Our next joint parish cruise (with Resurrection parish in Ellicott City) is scheduled for March 2024, sailing around the tip of South America from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Santiago, Chile.  There is more information on our parish website, but I want to bring to your attention that Holland America is offering the special “Have it all” promotion (which is a great deal) from now only until the end of September.  

       For many years, the Marriage Encounter program has deepened the love of many couples with a special faith perspective.  It is not a program for troubled marriages, but if you would like to bring new life to a relationship that may have settled into a routine, this program can be very helpful—as many of our own parishioners can attest!  The bulletin has information about an upcoming nearby weekend retreat in October.  

       Our Environmental Stewardship Committee has now expanded our adopt-a-road program to include Christopher’s Crossing as well as Opossumtown Pike!  The next clean-up will be on Saturday 24 September, so please sign up in the narthex after Masses this weekend or use the scan code available in the bulletin.
