Now that Fr. Agustin is back from vacation. I am going to take some vacation time. I will be gone from July 7th – July 21st. I am going to spend my time off at my house in NH.

I am pleased to share that the Parish of the Transfiguration has raised $51,875.00 in gifts and pledges toward our 2018 Catholic Appeal goal of $54,157.00. Thank you to all who have already pledged support. If you have yet to give, we need your help! Please give today to help us reach our goal by July 1, 2018. Gifts can be made online at or by completing a pledge form available in the back of the church.

I have been telling you for weeks that Fr. Tully and I will be running a 10-day trip to the Holy Land in October 2019. It is over a year away. The cost is $3,699.00 per person.  I am happy to say that the brochures have arrived and are available at the front door of the churches. Some people may be wondering about safety. Traveling to the Holy Land is safe. I know many priests who have recently led pilgrimages to the Holy Land without any issues. When I went in 1975, I stayed in the Arab section of Jerusalem. The Arab people were wonderful. I felt very safe. Today travel to the Holy Land is booming. If it was unsafe to go, travel there would not be booming. Once you go, the scriptures will seem so alive because you have seen the sites described or referred to in the scriptures. Think about it.

Finally, on this weekend, we will give out the scholarships to the graduating altar servers. I wanted to wait until Fr. Agustin was back because he oversees the altar servers.

Well I guess that is it for now. Until next time, take care.

Fr. Earley
