Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
What an exciting 5 months it has been as your new pastor! I have encountered and witnessed so much joy and love through so many of you. The Holy Spirit is fully alive and at work in this community of faith. Just last week, I received a phone call from a mother who came with her husband and four teens to our Saturday evening Mass. She said her son was giving up on his faith and considering walking away from the Catholic Church. After Mass, her son told her that was the best Mass he had ever been to and that he was not going to leave the Church but instead was motivated to get more involved. She and her daughter returned for the Become the Fire prayer gathering and had a powerful experience of the love and mercy of God! Praise the Lord! It is my firm belief that this is only the beginning. I believe God is going to continue to bring more people to us as we continue to unleash the Gospel!
Big news! St Scholastica parish is celebrating its 90th year. We will be celebrating a full year of exciting festivities beginning with our Christmas Eve Mass on Sunday, December 24th at 4 pm. The theme for this year of festivities is Celebrating Our History Unleashing the Gospel. Here are some of the major festivities.
Your brother in Christ,
Fr. Jim Lowe, CC
