Dear Friends,

Welcome to our annual Festival next weekend.  This week the excitement of the children of our parish will build with each passing day.  And we will smile as we remember what it was like to be a child and get so excited!

Can you believe this is our 20th festival?  Our volunteer leaders have learned to improve with each passing year and we expect this year to be the best ever.  With a new ride company and under the leadership of Helen Griffiths and Sophia Crescenzi, who were also chairpersons last year, we expect the most successful festival ever.

So many people in many different ways support this great community builder and fundraiser.  Thank you for buying the raffle tickets mailed to all parishioners, for having your weekend meals at the food booths, for hanging out here to enjoy the entertainment of musicians and dancers, for hours of volunteering etc. etc.  It’s wonderful!  School parents are particularly grateful for all who support the festival because most of the money raised goes to our school – all the silent auction money, and the rest is split between parish and school.

Parking is always a challenge on Festival weekend so if you can walk to church or carpool it would be much appreciated. 

God bless you all,
Fr. McNamara

Prayer For Priestly Vocations
Prayed at the Ordination of
Fr. Eben McDonald and Fr. Nabor Rios
on June 3, 2012

Father, in every generation you provide ministers of Christ and the Church. We come before you now, asking that you call forth more men to serve our Archdiocese in the ministerial priesthood.
Give us priests who will lead and guide your holy people gathered by Word and Sacrament. Bless us with priestly vocations so that we can continue to be a truly Eucharistic Church, strengthened in our discipleship of Jesus Christ, your Only Son.
Raise up, we pray, men who are generous in their service, willing to offer their lives and all their gifts for your greater glory and for the good of your people.
We make our prayer in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, through Christ, Our Lord.
