The Katharine Konnection

Fr. Keith’s Korner


Fr. Keith’s Korner

        Our summer Vacation Bible School (VBS) will be held from 26 June – 30 June from 9:00-12:00 each day, with Middle School VBS being held in the afternoons from Sunday through Thursday that week.  Every year it is inspiring to see our parish children singing and praising the Lord with such joy and enthusiasm each day!  Please enroll your children over the next few weeks using the registration form on our parish website, where you can also get more information or sign up to volunteer.

       You’ll see in the bulletin that we are at 99% of our parish goal for the Annual Appeal.  You could be the person to put us over the goal by using a donor envelope you may have sitting on the desk at home– and they are also available at the narthex Welcome Center.  Thanks for helping us reach our parish goal!

       The need for blood donations never goes away, and so we have scheduled our spring Blood Drive on Saturday 17 June to support the efforts of the American Red Cross to provide for this need.  Please sign up for your appointment time on our parish website.  Another time-saving measure is to pre-register with the Red Cross by completing the RAPIDPass to provide your health history. More information is available in the bulletin.

       As we expand ministry to Catholics in Frederick Health Hospital, more Eucharistic Ministers are needed to bring communion to patients, and a training session is scheduled for Saturday 24 June.  Please contact me by 7 June if you feel called to this ministry, so that an application packet can be sent to you.

       Next weekend we will celebrate the great Feast of Pentecost as we conclude the celebration of the Easter Season.  Make sure you get tickets for our annual Pentecost Breakfast between the Sunday morning Masses, and don’t forget to wear something red to Mass as we wish “Happy Birthday” to the Church!
