ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS 1 PARISH, 3 CHURCHES, 1 FAITH COMMUNITY
For those of you who attend Mass regularly, you are going to see another “new look” to our weekend liturgies. In our continual journey in becoming one parish, we will now have the liturgical ministers serving at all of our churches. This step is another very visible and viable reality that we are all going to face sooner rather than later. All Liturgical Ministers, please pick up your summer schedules in the sacristy after Mass.

NEWS FROM OUR ADOPTED TROOPS
Dear Jack: Thanks for the box. Snacks from home are always good. Army food gets old quick. I’m originally from Chicago. My mother was born in Pittsburgh. So, I have a heart for the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates unless they are playing a Chicago team. I am 33 years old, have been married for 10 years and have 2 children, Ivan (6) and Alec (2). I have been stationed in Kansas and Germany. This is my 3rd deployment, I have been to Iraq two times and this is my first time in Afghanistan. My job in the army is tank commander. There are too many mountains where I am now so we did not bring our tanks. Since I do not have a tank right now, I have a very important job. I work nights loading and unloading helicopters and cargo planes that then fly up into the mountains to drop off food, water and mail to small villages. In these small villages, there are other army soldiers helping the local people fight the bad guys. Thanks again for the snacks. PS – the brownies were still soft. Ben Stehman
