Thoughts of a parish priest…

Sharing our Faith

1 Comment

At a recent Parish Council meeting, one parishioner asked why I don’t post more on this blog. The simple answer is, that I have just been too busy trying to be a pastor of two parishes (and a school). But I will admit it, that is an awful excuse! We are all busy! Sharing and explaining our faith through social media is very much a part of my job as a parish priest, and so, I am going to try and be more consistent with posting my thoughts, some articles and videos that I find insightful, and other random things that are going on in the parishes.

Just yesterday, the Church celebrated the feast of the Archangels, Michael, Raphael and Gabriel. Being a parish named after St. Michael, it was an opportunity for celebration.

At the 1:30pm Mass for the school children, I blessed and installed all of our new altar boys (we now have about 35). At the end of Mass, we processed the statue of St Michael through the Church. The boys were very excited to be in their cassocks and surplices. It was a beautiful moment for the parish. Just one more attempt to RESTORE THE SACRED!  Here are some pics!

  1. So happy you will be posting again…great job! Lucky parishioners! Loved seeing the altar boys with their hands folded….love your attempts to restore the sacred…..one step at a time….
