A NOTE FROM THE PASTOR

Fr. Anda will be away from August 7 to August 17, 2018.  He is leading a pilgrimage to Greece.  As a result, on August 9th and 10th as well as August 16th and 17th, there will be a communion service in lieu of a daily Mass.  Also, there will be no priest available on those dates.

Every year each parish must participate in the Mission Coop program.  We are assigned a missionary group who sends a representative to tell you about their work and solicit your support.  This year we were assigned the LaSalette order.  One of their priests will be speaking at all the Masses that weekend and will seek your support.

I am pleased to share that the Parish of the Transfiguration has raised $55,245.00 in gifts and pledges toward our 2018 Catholic Appeal goal of $54,157.00. Thank you to all who have already gave a gift or made a pledge.  If all pledges are fulfilled, we will meet our assessment.  Again, thanks very much.

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. There are brochures at the front door of both churches.

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

Fr. Earley
