Entries for April 2019

The Parish Pastoral Council Election is the weekend of May 18 & 19. Here are the nominees to fill the Three open seats on the council. Joe Bering It is an honor to be nominated for one of the vacating seats on our parish council.  Interestingly, this nomination has occurred at a time when I am seeking the opportunity to participate more actively in the lay ministry at St. Boniface as the result of a planned career slow down after 25 years which should allow more time to devote to family and self. As a biographical sketch, I was raised in a very caring Catholic family of 5 children in Lebanon,...

April 21, 2019 Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!  Instead of saying hello, early Christians usually greeted each other with this salutation. Christians in the Holy Land use this even today.   By saying this, they acknowledge that the Resurrection changes everything. Now we know that death is not the dark end that we will see each other again and that justice and peace will be restored when we see the Savior face to face. These aren't pious platitudes but what we know from the life of Jesus.   Better yet, it helps put the pain and resentments of our lives in context.&nbs...

Posted on April 11, 2019 in: Religious Education

Closing Day Mass is April 14th at St. Lawrence 9:00 a.m. –  We are very blessed that some of our youth are assisting at this Closing Day Mass as Readers and Altar Servers. We invite parents as well and ask that our youth in Kindergarten and 1st Grade sit as a class up front with their parents. We ask that our youth in 2nd to 8th grade will sit as a class and their parents will sit in pews surrounding them. Also, that our 8th grade class offer to service as greeters and ushers. Thank you parents for participating.

Minutes
April 7, 2019 Take Advantage of the Last Chances. Last weekend we had a retreat for the Confirmation candidates. The Confession discussions were candid and thoughtful. I think some were surprised that it could be so calm and refreshing. We have 2 more opportunities for Keep The Light On.   They are normally uncrowded, allowing time to talk. Moreover, the time is convenient ...from 5:30 to 7pm.   I promise I won't faint if you say Bless me Father it's been 3 years... In addition, our Contemporary Music Choir is performing a Lenten Concert on SUNDAY, APRIL 14 (next weekend...

March 31, 2019 There's a new spirit here. Numerous people mention it. We can feel it. People linger more after Mass to talk and visit. More families are arriving and asking for children to be baptized. The number of parishioners volunteering has shot up. You are noting that some old faces have returned. That's a blessing of God's grace that despite the year's headlines, we are growing. At Easter, four people will be entering the Church. Marvelous! Continue this trend by gently inviting friends or family who have filtered away.  Tell them of the music that soars, of homilies that seek to be biblic...
