Fathers, this day is for you. May God always give you a thankful heart for the awesome privilege of fatherhood. For Jesus, every day was his Father's day. Jesus taught his disciples to pray to God by calling God our Father.
I am happy to report at the parish has reached 53% of its Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) goal of $46,027.00 and we have done so with the participation of about 26% of the parish. If you are not part of that 26%, please take a moment to make your donation. I am keeping my eye on the level of participation in the parish. I would certainly like to see this level increase over previous years. Later in the summer there will be a further attempt made to contact you about the CSA.
I am also happy to report that the parish pictorial directory will be the best one yet! Many parishioners will be included in this milestone publication. One helpful benefit of doing the pictorial has been the registration of some families who thought they were already registered. We have helped these families register, and I want to emphasize how important it is that you do register if you indeed consider Transfiguration to be your parish.
Please keep Fr. Jeremy in your prayers while he is on retreat the week of June 23-27th. And thanks once again for all those who were willing to be part of our discernment for parish leadership on our Pastoral Council and commissions!
