Pre-registration for Owensboro Catholic Schools begins on Monday. I encourage every school family to consider the possibility of a quality Catholic school education for your children. The parish is happy to support you when you make this choice. I remind you that, in order to receive a reduced tuition rate, you must receive a voucher from the parish. The criteria for receiving the voucher are: membership in the parish, regular worship in the Cathedral, stewardship commitment.
We haven’t said much about the Rice Bowls, which we make available during Lent each year. This program supports the work of Catholic Relief Services, which is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic Church in the United States. (Our Lenten collection next weekend also goes to support the work of the CRS.) The insert within the Rice Bowl offers a simple, yet excellent program of Lenten activity for the entire family. We must each ask ourselves what we will give up in order to lift up others.
I was scheduled to be in Rome this week with other leaders of the Canon Law Society for some meetings with members of the Roman Curia. Following the meetings, I was to go to Assisi for a retreat. The Holy Father’s abdication caused a postponement of our meetings and therefore, of my trip. Even though I am unable to go to Assisi, I am nonetheless spending this week in retreat. Know of my prayers for you, and I ask that you pray for me as well; please and thank you.
Love, Fr. John
