        Last Saturday all the garden beds around the church building were weeded and mulched coordinated by Larry Jones.  Our thanks to Larry and our scout troop and all the other volunteers who assisted in sprucing up the grounds that day.  We are grateful also to Pat Christoff of Lawn Perfect Landscaping for delivering the mulch to our property and for the use of his wheelbarrows.

       The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will be celebrated at all the Masses next weekend.  We invite parishioners who are seriously ill, anticipating surgery, experiencing the effects of aging, or suffering from illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, alcohol or drug abuse, depression, etc. to come forward after the homily for the laying on of hands and anointing with the oil of the sick. 

       As we celebrate this healing sacrament during Mass, we will also be holding a Health & Wellness Fair on the church plaza during all the Masses next weekend.  This Fair will focus on the issue of mental health, and will offer a variety of resources from the local community including the Alzheimer’s Association and the Mental Health Association.

       Our own parish already sponsors the “Sanctuary of Hope” group, which meets monthly to assist parishioners and their families cope with mental health issues. Their next meeting is this Monday at 7:00 PM in the Brockway Room and all are welcome.  We are also sponsoring three Music and Mental Health sessions this summer on Thursday evenings led by parishioner Rachel Anderson (who is currently a music therapy student.)  More information and a registration QR code is available on a bulletin insert this weekend.

       Our parish is hosting an Archdiocesan Mass for LGBTQ+ persons and their families and allies this week on Tuesday at 7:00 PM.  It will be celebrated by Fr. Matt Beuning, who is the Archdiocesan director of LGBTQ+ ministries, and all are welcome.
