Text Box: MESSAGE FROM FATHER JENSON

This weekend we see the Lord in the Gospel calling for us to give witness to our faith in him before others.  This is as easily done by being generous with our time in helping others, whether individuals, the parish, or in the community, as by speaking up about religion.  If we share about what we are doing for others, those who listen to us may ask why you do that or how do you make the time for all that.  When that happens, that is an excellent time to share about oneís faith.  Sometimes people donít think that they want to hear about religion, but you can sometimes lead them to it by safer routes.  Be a witness for Jesus, be cagey enough about it so that people will be willing to listen. 

We will welcome Fr. Waldemar Matusiak next Sunday, June 29, at coffee and rolls following 9:00 AM Mass.  Come and meet the newest addition to the clergy who will help to staff St. Anthony and our tri-parish cluster of parishes along with St. Hedwigís and Holy Cross.  Please give him a warm Irish St. Anthony welcome.  Also, next Sunday will be my first at Holy Cross.  It should be a blast.

 Father Glen Jenson
