A Few Words from Father Steve

Dear Friends,

With the first heat wave gone by, summertime is upon us – a time for sipping lemonade and enjoying the outdoors. The summer season is a time for travel, baseball, and sunscreen. As Saint Christine’s Parish moves into the summer season, I want to invite you to continue to pray for the process of pastoral planning in which we are engaged with the Archdiocese.

God is already at work shaping us and equipping us to minister to the needs of our community. There has been some wonderful interest in the women’s group. The present men’s group is excitedly and aggressively looking and engaging new members. Perhaps you might be interested in one of these groups. Another group of parishioners is working to engage us in some fun activities while raising much needed funds for the parish. I am also greatly looking forward to working with the social committee to be able to enjoy some wonderful family events. Even in the summer months, our religious education directors are busy planning for a fun, educational and spiritual year. I know we have a long history of doing such ministry, and I sense God is leading us to claim a rich future of sharing God’s amazing grace and love.

As June ends, we move to our summer schedule, which means in July and August, Masses will be at 5:00 pm on Saturday, 7:00 am and 11:00 am on Sunday in the Main Church. Also on Sunday morning at the Chapel, there will be Masses at 8:00 am and 9:30 am. Even with a shortage of priests, you can be assured of these two Masses all summer until Labor day. Please note the slight time adjustment for this year. As I make some plans for time away myself, I might have to adjust some of the daily morning Masses in July or August. During the summer, there is no 9:00 am Mass at the Main Church on Sundays. Please remember that the parish does keep going throughout the summer.

Anything we can do for you, just call. A fall in revenue usually occurs as people go to churches in other areas. While it is good to be generous to your ‘vacation parishes’, we also continue to need your support throughout the summer. If you are going away, consider placing your envelopes for the weeks you will be away in the collection basket either before you leave or when you come back. Online Giving is a wonderful way to continue to support the parish. Slowly, we need to get back to the $9,000 - $10,000 range for our weekly revenue. This will allow us to keep up with our daily expenses and have some in reserve for necessary projects. Please remember every week, there are two collections at the Chapel. As you know in your own home, the bills keep mounting. Please keep up your usual generosity during the coming summer months. For us, it is of great importance. Thanks for helping us and have a good time planning and living your summer!

With love, Father Steve

Your envelope may be mailed or returned to the church or to the rectory anytime. You may also make a donation on-line either as a one time payment or over a period of time. I am so grateful to you. Thank you for your faithful support of our parish.
