Text Box: MESSAGE FROM 
FATHER JENSON

This weekend we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost which concludes the season of Easter.  Jesus says in the Gospel that his disciples are his Fatherís gift to him.  That means that you and I, his disciples, in Jesusí eyes are a gift to him from God the Father.  May this inspire us to want to live life in the Holy Spirit to the max in order to really be a gift to Jesus.  May the liturgy of Pentecost this Sunday inspire us to seek the power and inspiration of the Holy Spirit whom we received for this very purpose at Confirmation, to be a gift to everyone around us.  By so doing, we truly become a gift to Jesus in his eyes.  

This Sunday the last First Communion in our tri-parish cluster will take place at St. Anthony Parish at the 5:30 PM Saturday evening mass.  God bless these children and all those who have received this sacrament for the first time this Easter Season.

Father Jenson will be away at the Priesthood ordination this coming Saturday and so the Holy Hour and Mass at St. Anthonyís on Saturday morning will be cancelled next Saturday, May 29th.  Donít forget to mark your calendars for the St. Hedwigís Spring Festival in two weeks on Sunday, June 6th.  I hope to see our tri-parish family gather to celebrate together.  Our Northeast Eucharistic Procession will be the next Sunday, June 13th.  The upcoming weeks are filled with great events for our faith community, come and see!

Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
