FR. EARLEY's PODCAST: Looking Back & Looking Ahead - 47 Years in Ministry

A NOTE FROM THE PASTOR

A lot has changed since my last note. At the end of last week, I received an email from the diocese stating that Fr. Agustin Anda was being transferred to St. Theresa’s Church, North Reading. That came as a surprise to both of us. The farewell celebration on the weekend of June 12 & 13 will now be a farewell for both of us. After the 4:00 PM Mass at St. Dorothy’s, there will be a reception. We will have light refreshments and beverages. It is too close to supper time to go heavy. Nevertheless, it will give us an opportunity to say goodbye. After the noon Mass, there will be a reception in Villanova Hall. There will be a light lunch served following all covid protocols. There will be water and soft drinks available. Bishop Hennessey will be with us for the weekend. He will say the Masses and give a short homily on the readings. After the post-communion prayer, Fr. Agustin and I will say a brief word of farewell.

As I said at all the Masses last weekend, I had planned on working a very reduced work schedule after my farewell weekend. I knew Fr. Agustin could handle things. However, I cannot leave him with everything because he now needs time to pack and get ready for his move. So, I will be around until the end of the month. I will be in and out because I must move my “stuff” to my home. 

The roof of the St. Thomas rectory has been completed. That is one less issue for my successor to deal with.

At St. Thomas, you may have noticed that the lawn looks terrible. You can thank the wild turkeys for that. There are many wild turkeys in the area. They do a number on the lawn.

The annual Catholic Appeal is underway. Our assessment for 2021 is $56,370.65.

You can either drop the appeal envelope into the offertory basket or mail it in yourself. Thank you for your support. Here are the results thus far:

Goal                       Amount pledged                     % of assessment      Shortfall

$56,370.65               $42,480                                       75%                $13,890 

Now that people are back in church, we are relaunching the Catholic Appeal. We will do it June 18th & 19th.

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

Fr. Earley
