Pastor's Letter for the August 30, 2020 bulletin

Should we emphasize that we have “accomplished” just about 8 full months of the Year 2020 or that there are only 4 months to go?!  We ask the Lord that we truly will be better people from having faced these exceptional times, buoyed as always both by the wonderful people in our community who have faced even more exceptional challenges than these and by knowing that God is always inviting us to a closer relationship.  God is with us now, reinforced by so many ways: the Eucharist, Cross, Resurrection, Holy Spirit, Saints & Holy Angels to name just a few!  

And, we will have two full months of information regarding the upcoming election at the beginning of November.  Our Pro-Life Committee will be meeting this Sunday, August 30th at 2:30 p.m. in the Marian Room and will review election information resources. 

Welcome back to students and staff both here at St. Benedict School and at the various school districts in our parish area.  This will definitely be a time for great cooperation.  I am truly grateful for Sue Sanders, Principal of our St. Benedict School, and our whole staff who are going the extra mile to provide in-class instructions, beginning on September 1st. This upcoming week will be an important time for learning, not only the content of course subjects but also how we can safely and joyfully restore being a gathered school community. 

As mentioned before, initially the weekly Mass with our St. Benedict School students and staff will be held at a separate time on Thursdays and not open to the public as it had been.  Thank you for your understanding about how exceptionally cautious we will need to be.

May the Lord keep us protected and healthy and, as always, well prepared for the gift of eternal life!!
