Sixth Sunday of Easter

May 14, 2023

We have a tradition of offering a Blessing of Expectant Parents twice during the course of each year.  Please alert family members and friends who may want to participate in this blessing at the 9:00 AM Mass on Sunday 4 June—and register with pastoral associate Brian McCrohan (as indicated in the announcement in the bulletin).

       An African Multi-Cultural Festival is being planned by our parishioners for Saturday 3 June from 6-10 PM in McElroy Hall.  You will be able to sample the cuisine, culture and entertainment of a number of African countries that evening.  Tickets may be purchased in the narthex after Mass throughout May.

       In the school chapel we schedule Exposition of the Eucharist five times each week (listed in the bulletin), as well as the First Friday of each month.  This devotion invites us to participate in a prayer of adoration, and allows quiet time for God to speak… and us to listen.  If you find that life is often too hectic and noisy for you to find peace, you might try this reflective time of prayer.

       Don’t forget that next weekend we will be having our Summer Reading Used Book Sale after all Masses.  You are also encouraged by our Environmental Stewardship Team to Bike or Walk to Mass next weekend (as part of a national observance) if you live close enough to do so safely.

       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.

       This weekend we acknowledge the gift of our mothers (both living and deceased) and pray that God may bless them with peace and happiness, in return for the selfless love they have so generously shared with their children over many years.  Happy Mother’s Day!  

Fr. Keith
