Pastor's Corner: May 15

Pastor's Corner: May 15
In the Psalms and the Gospels, it mentions how people of faith "go up to Jerusalem". It’s a term that captures ascending spiritually to the city of God. But it also covers the geography because it rests on a high mount. We literally need to travel uphill to reach Jerusalem from Tel Aviv airport or the Jordan River valley on the other side. Pray for us as we walk the path of Christ and gradually rise up to new levels of faith as we do so. When we return, parishioners will be on fire with an image of Jesus that is no longer black & white, but technicolor. ...

Pastor's Corner: May 8
I may sound obsessed about Parish Council lately but it’s so necessary. There are 4 vacancies. We need people who can think "big picture" and plan ahead for a growth in ministries that don't require a priest's attention. More than ever, these are your parishes. Who understands how boards of directors work? They don't create the bake sale or dinner, they recruit the people who will run those events on a long-term basis. Our parishes need to chart a course not based on Fr. Bill's direction, but on what was clearly expressed in the Synod Listeni...

Important Parking Notice

Important Parking Notice
Please help us be considerate to our neighbors and businesses that surround our churches. Be mindful of the yellow no parking areas on the corners to prevent any accidents as well as the private parking lots that are reserved for business customers. Our neighbors in South Williamsport have witnessed near miss accidents on the corners of Winthrop Street and W. Central Ave. so it is safest to use the parking lot behind Blessed Beginnings Child Care (on W. Pheasant Alley) when possible. Our neighbors on Washington Blvd. have been patient with us during large gatherings, like t...

Pastor's Corner: May 1
On Saturday, May 7, several children will receive their First Holy Communion. In the subsequent weeks as they become more relaxed, they will absorb the attitude they see from us as we receive. Do they see reverence as we take the Body of Christ in our hands? Are we prayerful after returning to our seats? Do they see us at church with regularity? Adult behavior often sets the bar for children. As we sing, pray, and genuflect, they watch. Meanwhile, we pray for them.

Pastor's Corner: April 24
The Feast of (John) Mark the Evangelist is on Monday. He was a cousin of Barnabas. While he traveled with Paul, he seemed closest to Peter. His audience was Gentile Christians when he wrote about 30 years after the death of Jesus. Although this is the shortest gospel, it’s also more detailed and less theological. His main theme is to proclaim the Good News that Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah.

Pastor's Corner: Easter Sunday

Pastor's Corner: Easter Sunday
At Easter Mass, take in the beauty of the moment. Flowers with strong fragrance, white vestments, exhilarated children filled with the sugar of jelly beans, grandparents dressed in pink and violets. Savor that and the feel of holy water as it covers you like the grace of the Holy Spirit. Let your ears and heart jump with joy as the Alleluias lift you and promise new life. Absorb the notes of joyous music as it raises you up. Our Catholic faith in the Risen Christ invites us to use all our God given senses to thank the Creator for continuing the act of creation in us!
