It is a very significant day ... The Feast of the Assumption and the 100th Anniversary of our parish. The Assumption is a very special day in my life.

Mass will be celebrated at noon for the anniversay followed by a dinner at the church which will kick off the 100th year. Festivities and events are planned for the whole year. Looking forward to this.

God bless this wonderful parish and its community.

The Feast of The Assumption

'See the beauty of the daughter of Jerusalem, who ascended to heaven like the rising sun at dawn.'
-- Benedictus antiphon from Daily Office

Evening shadows fall ...

O Christ, you are the light & day
Which drives away the night,
The ever shining Sun of God
and pledge of future light.
As now the evening shadows fall
Please grant us, Lord, we pray,
a quiet night to rest in you
until the break of day.
Remember us, poor mortal men,
We humbly ask, O Lord,
and may your presence in our souls,
Be now our great reward.

"Keep your face to the sunshine
and you cannot see the shadow.
It's what sunflowers do."
