Greetings all!

As you heard at Mass this last weekend, we had a couple of special announcements on Abbot Barnabas ending his time of service to the parish and also the announcement of the Open Parish Meeting on Sacred Heart Church (during which we will discuss the likely recommendation to the Archbishop to begin the process of closing Sacred Heart). 

 I wanted to make sure you have a copy of the announcement in case others approach you asking for information. Thank you also for all of your input on this.

 Obviously, this will be a topic at our next meeting, on Monday, June 18. One thing to think about is do we continue to look at our parish celebration on July 15 this year or do we need to do something different in honor of Sacred Heart Church?
