From Father Scott

May 5, 2021

 

Dear friends in Christ,

 

I am writing to thank you for your personal prayers, Mass enrollment cards, Novenas, and the meals you have so generously provided during my recent surgery and subsequent recovery.

 

This past week, it was a joy to participate in our two Confirmation liturgies, as well as the First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion Masses of our Second and some Third graders.

 

We stand in a debt of love for all in our parish community who helped our young parishioners to be so well prepared to receive their Sacraments. In particular, we thank Mrs. Lynn Smierciak, Director of Religious Education, for her positive and joyful spirit throughout this long pandemic; Mrs. Claire Anderson in the Religious Education Office for her dedication to our parish community; and all the catechists who teach and form the minds and hearts of our young people.

 

We also thank Dr. Louis Howe, Jr., Principal of St. Joseph School, and Mrs. Mary Ann Fleming, Assistant Principal and the Eighth-Grade teacher; and all of the School teachers, who are central to witnessing joyfully to our Catholic identity at School and after School. St. Joseph School already has a robust enrollment for the fall semester in no small measure due to Dr. Howe’s leadership.

 

In a special way, we offer our gratitude to Father Michael Clark our Parochial Vicar for his dedication and love of priestly ministry; and our entire Parish staff and volunteers, all of whom took extraordinary steps to ensure the safety of our young people during the pandemic. Families in our parish were able to join in the celebration of these Sacraments because of the assurance that it was safe to gather on our campus knowing that every possible step had been taken to keep everyone safe during this very challenging time in life of the Church and world.

 

Finally, we are thankful for the parents of our young parishioners who entrusted their children to our care. Arthur Jersild writes, "Compassion is the ultimate and most meaningful embodiment of emotional maturity. It is through compassion that a person achieves the highest peak and the deepest reach in his or her search for self-fulfillment." We are a community of compassion centered on the Mystery of the Cross of Christ, who out of compassion suffered and died for the promise of the resurrection.

 

Devotedly in Christ,

 

Rev. Samuel V. Scott 

Pastor
