The Katharine Konnection

Fr. Keith’s Korner


Fr. Keith’s Korner –

     As you saw on a bulletin insert last week, an Easter season Parish Retreat is planned for Saturday 20 April 2024 .  The retreat is called, “From the Heart of Saint Katharine Drexel” and will focus on her life and how we continue her mission in our community.  Thanks to our Adult Faith Formation Committee for planning this. 
    It has long been a parish tradition on Palm Sunday weekend to have our annual Easter Egg Hunt and our annual Passover Seder Meal.  Please remember that you are asked to register for these activities by Monday morning (at the latest!) and that the forms are available on our parish website.
    It is possible to go to confession each Saturday from 3:30-4:30 PM in church, but please be aware that there is still an extra opportunity in our area this week to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for the feast of Easter. All the priests from regional parishes will be available on Tuesday from 7:00-8:30 PM at Saint Timothy Church (Walkersville).
    The Frederick School of Religion has been in operation for forty years, offering an adult opportunity to continue learning about religion in an ecumenical atmosphere.  We are blessed to have such a service available in this area, held this year at nearby Brook Hill United Methodist Church (on Indian Springs Road at Bethel Road.). More information is included in this bulletin and on our parish website.
    Having cruised the beautiful Strait of Magellan and rounded Cape Horn (the tip of South America), this weekend our parish cruise is touring the Chilean fjords.  I thought there were only fjords in Norway, so this is a revelation!  We will then make our way up the west side of Chile to Santiago, and fly home on Wednesday.  I look forward to celebrating Holy Week with you.  Please be aware that, weather permitting, we will begin Mass next weekend with the Blessing of Palm and Procession on the front plaza of the church.
