From our Pastor:
Things continue to roll along as I get back into the swing of things here at Holy Redeemer. I imagine that it is the same for many of our families with school kids too as school starts back up. It takes a while to reestablish the routine of school life and everything else that goes along with it. I pray that if you had gotten out of the routine of joining us weekly in the celebration of the Eucharist at Mass that you can make that part of your weekly routine as well. It is important for us as individuals to have that spiritual nourishment and strengthening in our lives. When we try to do it on our own, it is always tougher. The other part is that we are there for others as well. I can't tell you how many times, just since I've been back, that people have spoken to me about the importance of their church family. Whether it is at the time of illness, or times of joy, with or without kids people have shared how important this family is. That family is only built when we spend time together around the altars of the Word of God and the Body and Blood of Christ. Please make sure to continue to invite family, friends, neighbors and anyone that you meet to be a regular part of our parish family, especially around the Eucharist.
That family is built when we work and play together as well. One of those ways is next weekend's Summer Event. It is only as successful as the number of members of our family that come together to work and play together. Not everyone is able to make the event a success, but even inviting family, friends, neighbors and others is a way to make it successful. It can be a success not just on the financial side of things, but also in introducing others to our church family and the enjoyment that we have together. If you haven't signed up yet to help out, please check it out. If you haven't invited someone else to join us, please invite. If you haven't said an extra little prayer for it to be a success in many ways, please do so now. I do say that I am glad I am back to work and play with our church family for the Summer Event.
A huge thanks to those that work for months getting everything prepared for our Summer Event. We certainly see all the things as they come together for the day of the summer event itself, but we may not see the hours of brainstorming, meetings, emails and preparation that go into it before the day. To those who have helped us get to this point & make this year's Summer Event a success in many ways, I want you to know the appreciation of our parish family.

Did You Know?
The word “rosary” comes from the Latin word “rosarium” meaning a rose garden; therefore praying the Rosary is like giving a rose to Our Lady with each Hail Mary. Already in the 13th century May devotions honoring Mary began to be practiced in the Church. PRAY THE ROSARY DAILY
