My continuing thanks to all who have helped me to learn how things work at St. Mary’s. I am grateful for the support and confidence. I feel certain we can continue the good work begun by Fathers Markey and Cipolla. We look forward to beginning our RCIA classes on Tuesday, September 4th at 6:45 pm in the church. The devotion and presentation will begin at 7:00 pm and last until approximately 7:45 pm.
A note from Father Ringley (Notas del Padre Ringley): It has been my custom in the past to recommend various spiritual authors to my parishioners for “summer reading”. While I have been a bit busy about many things this summer, in honor of the feast of St. Augustine, the patron saint of our diocese, and the patron saint of my former parish, I suggest for your end of summertime pleasure and spiritual edification St. Augustine’s “Confessions”.
