The Katharine Konnection

Fr. Keith’s Korner


Fr. Keith’s Korner –

      Our Volunteer Appreciation Party is planned for Saturday 13 April and I hope that all parish volunteers will sign up over the next few weekends after Mass.  It is inspiring to realize how many people are involved in so many different ministries in our faith community, and this annual event expresses gratitude for that dedication. 

       Our 21th Annual Easter Egg Hunt will take place on the Saturday morning of Palm Sunday weekend.  It’s great fun to see the children so excited!  The event is free, but you need to register (a form is in the bulletin and on our website) by 18 March so that we can provide enough eggs for the children to hunt!

       It is possible to go to confession each Saturday from 3:30-4:30 PM in our church, but please be aware that there are two extra opportunities in our area this Lent to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for the feast of Easter. All the priests from the regional parishes will be available on this Friday        15 March from 4:00 -6:00 PM at Saint Joseph Church in Buckeystown, and on Tuesday 19 March from 7:00-8:30 PM at Saint Timothy Church in Walkersville.

       Our Environmental Stewardship Committee is coordinating another Recycling Event on our parking lot this spring on Saturday 27 April.  You will be able to drive in and drop off—so don’t miss the chance to do some spring housecleaning and help our planet at the same time. Remember, our planet is a gift!

       Parents of children in Catholic Schools will want to take note that the deadline for applying for tuition assistance for the 2024-25 academic year is 31 March. The parishes in southern Frederick County collaborate through the Parish Tuition Assistance Fund, and the monthly collection for Catholic School Education goes directly into this fund.  Last year over $195,000 in assistance was awarded, and over $1.4 million has been awarded to students since the inception of this fund. More info is available in the bulletin.
