I received and invitation for the Mass of Chrism on Tuesday, March 24 at Noon at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Superior. I have been asked to invite all of you to join in the celebration of this Mass where the Holy Oils are Blessed as well as Renewal of Vows for our priests. In the absence of a bishop for our diocese, Bishop Sirba from the Diocese of Duluth, MN will preside at the Mass of Chrism. We are also asked to have members of the parishes receive the Holy Oils during the Mass. If you plan to attend and are willing to receive the Holy Oils please let me know.
We also recently received another reimbursement for our parishes from the Faith in Our Future Campaign. The amounts received were: St. Francis $482.85, St. Augustine $866.74, St. Mary Parish $8,190.33 and St. Mary School $8,190.33. All of these checks will go to the causes we presented when we began the campaign. Thank you again for your support of this campaign. If you still wish to be a part of it you can contact the office or go to the website of the Diocese of Superior.
I am very thankful for all the support for both Ginny and I received during this transplant time. I have a procedure schedule for March 17. I am hopeful that is all. When things are complete I will then write more.
In Christ's Peace,
