This weekend we say thank you in a very special way to Marianne Webster for all of her years of love and leadership as principal as well as teacher here at Holy Redeemer. There have already been many stories shared & many more that will undoubtedly be shared in the coming days. These stories are of the loving care that she has given to the students, the sympathetic ear lent to parents and the example of Christ's presence to all who have met her. She is retiring from her time as principal here at Holy Redeemer, but isn't disappearing. She's still a member of our parish family and will be taking some time to be daughter, mother and grandma to those who love her so much. She's stated that she knows God has more in store for her and we want her to know of all of our prayers for continued discerning of God's will. It has brought her to us and now to this point. We know that with her heart open to God's will, she will be exactly where he wants her to be. Thanks, Marianne.
Next weekend I leave for Washington, DC for my 2 months of study at the Catholic University of America. This will be my fourth of five summers of studies away from the parish. After this summer, I will have a fall and spring class online as I have had each of the semesters between my summer studies. Then, next summer I'll be in DC once again working on writing my thesis and studying for the comprehensive exams...a one hour oral exam across the table from three professors.
Know that as I'm away, I am leaving you in the capable hands of our staff and certainly God. Fr. Ron Zgunda will be back for the first two weekends (and weeks between) that I am gone and Fr. Steve Lintzenich will be here the other weekends and weeks. Our daily Mass schedule will be reduced to Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8 am, but we will continue our Monday 8 am Communion service. Please check out the flyer in the vestibules of church or on our website to find other daily Mass times of local parishes. Doug Rasler will take on any administrative duties that I leave in my time away and I thank him for that...let's pray for no lightning strikes this summer though.
Like last year, emails concerning the parish will be responded to with an out of office reply to contact Doug Rasler or someone at the parish office. I will try to answer any personal correspondence and certainly love getting mail & care packages. I passed along my shameless sharing of my summer address with classmates who inquisitively asked how I got so much mail. Their mail began an uptick as they too shared their summer address. Again, my address for the summer is:
Fr. Jason Gries
c/o Theological College
401 Michigan Ave NE
Washington, DC 20017
Don't worry that chocolate & chocolate chip cookies are my favorite. If you are concerned about them making the trip, I'm just glad to receive any words of Hello and anything you'd like to send on...I'm not picky when it comes to shows of love and prayer.
I will continue to update a shared photo album through the parish website. Check it out and you can even look back to photos from past years and my letter describing my studies and how I got there. As I am gone, I will certainly be thinking of all of you and praying for you. I ask the same prayers for me as I am away and may God bless us all this summer and beyond.
God Bless, Fr. Jason Gries
