Saying Goodbye to Father Marc 😓
Father Marc’s last Masses are this weekend, June 25th/26th. Some people in the parish want to gift him something as a going-away-present.  Father Marc has his own chalice that is quite scuffed inside - he would appreciate very much having it replated. If you are interested in being part of this for Father, parishioners are collecting money to make it happen - leave whatever cash you want to contribute in the box on the table in the vestibule (these are NOT tax deductible donations) and sign your name on the card that will be next to the box. The money will be used to cover the cost of the replating and anything extra will be given to Father.

Everyone who brought a card for Fr. Marc is invited to put them in the basket in the vestibule. At the end of each Mass, someone from the transition team will thank Father for sharing his gifts with us for the last 7 years. At Father’s request, there is no other celebration planned.

There is no daily Mass this week. Daily Mass will resume Wednesday, July 6th at 10:00am. The daily Mass schedule going forward will be W-Th-Fr, Mass at 10:00am. Eucharistic Adoration will continue on Thursdays after Mass until 11:45.

There will be no confession time next Saturday before the 5pm Mass as that will be Fr. David’s first Mass with us. The following weekend, Saturday, July 9th, he will hear confessions 4:00-4:30.
