Father Jim will be celebrating his last Masses this weekend the 26th and 27th of June. While registration is not required for these Masses, keep in mind that it will reach 100 degrees this weekend and we still do not have air conditioning, and we continue to limit seating in the sanctuary to 250 people. On Sunday morning, we will open overflow seating in the multi-purpose rooms. Masks will still be required. All of the weekend masses will be live streamed to our Facebook page, and all are welcome to the farewell barbecue on Sunday at 1 pm. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring extra water, we will be sitting outside and it is going to be hot!
Meanwhile, let's continue to pray for him and for our incoming pastor, Fr. Bill McKee!
Here's a peek at Father Jim's Farewell Calendar:
Prayer During Time of Transition
Your wisdom is beyond our understanding, and your goodness to us is more than we can imagine.
Surround and fill us with the light of your truth and love during our time of transition.
Let us view this moment of change and renewal
as an invitation to build upon the foundation that your creative power has begun in us.
As we offer our thanks for all we have experienced together as a parish community,
help us to look forward with trust to the future you have planned for us.
Empower us to be your Church at all times:
a people united in faith, where all are welcomed and connected by your love.
Give us the courage to carry the torch forward,
being open to new possibilities and embracing the new life to come.
As our Good Shepherd, guide us through this transition to become more fully the community of disciples you call us to be.
Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
Priest: St. John the Baptist All: Pray for us!
