St. Stephen Cathedral Mass
Blessed Sacrament Chapel Mass
Published on June 24th, 2011
As you know, we are in the midst of our annual three-day period of Eucharistic Devotion and Adoration. It is a yearly opportunity for us to give extra attention to the gift and Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist and to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It is here that we find our basic Catholic identity; it is this that makes us and keeps us Catholic. I hope that many of you will be able to join us for our Corpus Christi procession at three o’clock this afternoon. Parents, bring your children. This can be a powerful lesson in Eucharistic spirituality.
Larry Lyon officially retires on Thursday of this week. On behalf of each of you, I once again thank Larry for his generous service to our parish for more than a quarter of a century. We have been blessed by him, and we are grateful that he will remain an active member of the parish and a valuable resource in the years ahead. Congratulations, Larry, many thanks, and God bless you and Gene as you both enter into this new stage of life.
Welcome to Chris Warren as he begins his employment as our parish business manager. Chris has been working with Larry for the past several months and he is well-prepared to step in and join us on the parish staff.
As you know, John Wright is our parish representative on the Owensboro Catholic Schools Council. At the last meeting, John was elected as the vice-chair of the Council. Congratulations, John, and many thanks for your service in the name of the parish and on behalf of all the students in OCS.
Many thanks to all who participated in VBS last week. It is lots of work for Sr Therese Francis and many others. God bless you all!
Fr. Brandon will be away this week for some well-deserved vacation. Safe travels, Fr. Brandon, and enjoy.
Love, Fr. John
