June 19, 2011: From the Pastor's Desk...

My Dear Parishioners,

Each Church Year, as the Easter Season draws to a close and transitions into Ordinary Time, we celebrate three successive solemnities: Most Holy Trinity (this weekend) and The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi, next weekend), and finally the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. This weekend we celebrate the “mystery” of our God, revealed to us as “Three Persons” (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), one in being, in full communion with each other. The scripture readings for this feast offer us significant insight into the nature of our Triune God. First, our God is merciful, gracious, slow to anger, and rich in kindness.

Second, our God is united in being by grace, love, and fellowship, working for our redemption and sanctification. Third, our God desires to share eternal life with us. While much of the true nature of God remains a mystery to us, enough has been revealed to us through scripture and tradition that we can be assured that our God is fundamentally a God of relationships, calling us to enter into the sacred relationship of His being: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Congratulations and best wishes, along with “Ad Multos Annos,” are offered to Bruce and Jeanette Shutte who this weekend celebrate their 55th Wedding Anniversary.

On July 1st our grade school officially transitions into the Green Bay “GRACE” system. That means that the entire operation of Holy Cross School, along with the other Catholic schools in Green Bay, will no longer be under the control of the local parishes but will be run and operated by the GRACE system. This process has been in the planning stage for the past 5 years, and so we wish the new system and its officials, teachers, principals, and students God’s special blessings.

Please remember that our Parish Picnic is quickly coming upon us. Kindly remember to volunteer some of your time to help out, sell raffle tickets, and invite your family, friends and neighbors to come and enjoy our Annual Parish Picnic.

To all our fathers, grandfathers, and fathers-to-be, a very happy and blessed Father’s Day. I do hope that you are enjoying the Summer thus far and that you will be able to relax, chill out, and renew your spirit.

Oremus pro invicem,
Fr. Tom
