The Katharine Konnection

Fr. Keith’s Korner


Fr. Keith’s Korner

      We are blessed at our parish with the diaconal ministry of three permanent deacons, who serve our parish in many different capacities.  It came to my attention this week that Deacon Kevin Kulesa has been serving our parish now for ten years after being ordained in May 2013.  And so, we offer congratulations to Deacon Kevin on the tenth anniversary of his diaconal ordination!

       Over the last two summers we have scheduled “Concerts on the Plaza” on relaxing summer evenings after the Saturday 5:00 PM Mass.  The first this summer will be held next Saturday 10 June starting at 6:15 PM and featuring the Northside Blues & Rock Band.  Bring your folding chair and a picnic dinner… and enjoy the company of your fellow parishioners!

       Our Environmental Stewardship Committee is currently organizing another clean-up day along the portion of Opossumtown Pike and Christopher Crossing that our parish has adopted on Saturday 24 June.  You can sign up to join the fun next weekend in the narthex after all the Masses, or by scanning the code on a bulletin insert this weekend.

       Registration for our core Faith Formation programs for next fall is now starting, and all three programs involve family participation. You can register for our Faith Formation programs on our parish website, and there is more information available on a bulletin insert this weekend.  If you can volunteer as a catechist, we can always use your help!

       Parishioners are needed to bring communion to Catholic patients at Frederick Health Hospital, and a required Saturday morning training session has been scheduled for either 24 June or 22 July.  If you are interested in this ministry, please let me know by this Wednesday 7 June, as I will be submitting the names to the hospital chaplain who will then send an application packet for you to complete and return.  Thanks to all those who have already volunteered!
