Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,
Our Little Church Project, the replacement of the Church roof, is coming along. Thank you for your prayers for the good weather and your patience and understanding in having Masses in the parish hall.
The work continues. We have had to replace some decking on the roof due to rotting. The roofers also have had to replace wood above the gutter area. We hope to be back in the Church by next weekend, after a thorough cleaning inside the Church.

Bringing the Holy Eucharist to the Sick
I would like to thank the many parishioners and Eucharistic Ministers who bring the Eucharist to our sick and shut-in. Your service, with the permission of your Pastor, is a great spiritual gift. We ask our parishioners and Eucharistic Ministers at Mass to step to the side of the altar after receiving Communion and receive the Host for the person being visited.
Eucharistic Ministers at Mass will no longer be allowed to give a Host to people with a pyx. If you are a non-parishioner, you will be told to meet with the parish priest after Mass. Our Lady of Grace Eucharistic Ministers, please take note.

2016 Annual Catholic Appeal
The end of the 2016 Annual Catholic Appeal is approaching. May I ask you to please make your pledges and gifts. We have sent out letters to the families who have not given to the campaign this year.
I would like to thank the 358 households that have contributed $84,704.00. We have reached 96.3% of our goal of $88,000.00.

Building and Grounds Committee
A special note of thanks to Austin Sasso for painting the trim around the Rectory. Austin is one of our painting experts!
Also, a special note of thanks to Bob Bradley and his son and their crew for laying the groundwork for the new shed behind the parish garage!

Holy Family Icon
Many thanks to the members of the Msgr. Mooney Council Knights of Columbus for bringing the “Icon of the Holy Family” to our parish. May the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph guide and protect the families of our parish.

The Lord’s Kitchen
Please keep our OLG volunteers in your prayers as they serve the meal at the Lord’s Kitchen on Monday, June 27th.

Can You Help?
The Lord’s Kitchen is looking for additional volunteers. Anyone interested in donating their time to help with this Ministry please contact George Zamary at the Parish Office, 203-377-0928.

Peace, Monsignor Martin P. Ryan
