Thank you

Thank you
Don Fischer is an example of the servants in our parishes that keep things moving. For 20 years he has coordinated our Senior Servers for funerals at St Boniface. They offer a dignity to the funeral and help the priest in crucial matters. Recently, they had the honor of serving Don and his family as together we buried his wife, Joan. Now Don has decided to step aside and let someone else organize this ministry. We are deeply grateful to Don. May our parishes produce many more like him. (Fr Bill)

Father Bill's Pastor's Corner
April 11 - This week, Jews around the world remember the holocaust (Shoah) of 6 million Jews by the Nazi's. Sadly, genocide of ethnic groups & religions still continues. Catholics & Muslims in China, Orthodox Christians in Azerbaijan, Christians in Iraq are among the most obvious. Shining a spotlight on them is a moral responsibility. Besides the deaths, violence of that magnitude eats the soul of a country. Which is even a consideration for the US in the way we treat our most vulnerable.

Second Sunday Spring Events
Sundays - April 11 & 25; May 16th & 23rd:  Come join other 9-12 graders from St. Boniface, St. Lawrence, and St. Ann's to have dinner and discuss who Jesus is - what it means to be Catholic - what it means to be called to sainthood.  Weather-permitting, we will meet at the St. Ann's Pavilion from 5:00 to 6:30.

Fr Bill's Pastor's Corner
April 4 - There are many spiritual ways to describe the Resurrection. But maybe this year it’s takes on the additional significance of being a Reset. After months of hibernation, many people are returning to pray around the altar. That alone is reason to rejoice! But we know that we are entering a new phase of our two parishes. Friends have died. Some practices will be retired like passing around collection baskets and at least, delayed sharing of the Precious Blood in a chalice. But we must add new things also... more on-line access, more care to our "home ...

March 21 - Actions like denying Holy Communion or blessings end up shrinking our community even more quickly.  Christ welcomed the Samaritan woman at the well (married 5 times) & the Roman centurion (who conquered Palestine) without feeling a need to condemn and exclude them. We can assert our principles with out shoving people out the door.  If we applied litmus tests to everyone, Masses would be much smaller. All of us have parts of our lives that  need redemption.
