Accountability - February 8, 2009

Accountability is a word we hear a lot about these days. It is important to be responsible if one is committed to effective leadership. Once a month we have a building and maintenance collection. Here are some current projects that your contributions are making possible: filling cracks and striping the parking lot (spring), fixing the church sign, painting the exterior of the church (this May), repairing the floor and the pews in church, updating the school building to meet the fire code. I would like to thank Bruce Morris and our finance committee for their excellent stewardship.

This past Sunday there was a whirl of activity here at church. Many people came out to seek Mary’s intercession as the Icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe visited our parish. This coincided with Greg Albanese’s presentation to our Confirmation class. He spoke to the consistent Gospel of Life. Topics such as chastity, abortion, Lenten penalty, stem cell research were presented. Mary is always present to us as one who brings us closer to the vision of her Son. A big thank to our pro-life committee, Father Luke and Diane Comerford who led our efforts.

Fr. Bob Hawkins
