Welcome to Our Parish

 

 

 

My dear brothers and sisters:

Again, I thank you for your very warm and sincere welcome. I’m finding my way around, and hopefully my Plantar Fasciitis will soon wear off and I can be even more active. I’m already struck by how warm and kind everyone is, and how excellent the staff is here.

I am grateful for your responses to the initiatives I shared with you last weekend. I will move ahead on moving the tabernacles. We’re just beginning to put the pieces together to unite the collaborative offices, the bulletins and to reconfigure the phone systems- there are lots of moving parts, so it may take a while, and I’m grateful for your patience.

I’d like to make a change in the daily mass schedule, beginning the week of July 15th- moving the Tuesday 9 am Mass to Saturday at 9 am.

Effectively immediately, Funerals will be offered at 10 am or noon at the churches, keeping the 9 am Masses at St. Mary’s. I hope this is helpful to all involved.

The nickname for our Collaborative is really an informal thing, and I have heard some folks are not comfortable with Seaside, and I understand it. This isn’t something that needs to be decided immediately, if at all, so I’ll wait and listen to all options- we’ve got plenty of time.

We’re also on the search for altar servers-. This fall, we’re have a more focused pitch, but right now, we need kids, boys and girls, 4th grade and up, to do this very important work. If you have any questions, please ask me!.

-Fr. John
