Dear Friends,
 
Peace of Christ. This month of June has been filled with the celebration of any number of the lives of the saints. What a gift it is to have the example and intercession of so many holy men and women who have gone before us! This Tuesday, the Church continues our celebration of these blessed as we honor Saints Peter and Paul on their Solemnity. Two of our greatest saints were also deeply imperfect – I know for me, I find that a great source of hope!!
 
Last weekend, we returned in many ways to our “usual” celebration of Sunday Mass with the ropes no longer being in place and the congregation coming up to receive Holy Communion. As we gradually move forward from the pandemic, I couldn’t help but think back on everything in this last year. One of our many staff members who went above and beyond was our Director of Maintenance Steve Altman. Steve and his team helped sanitize between funerals, weddings, and Sunday Masses, which meant coming in every weekend. Everything was done joyfully, well, and with a desire to help people encounter the Lord. Please join me in thanking Steve and his team for their tireless work behind the scenes! I’m so grateful for all that they do.
 
Blessings on the week and know of my prayers, especially for all of the living and deceased members of Saints Peter and Paul Parish! Don’t hesitate to reach out to me or any of the priests if we can be of assistance.
 
Sincerely, with love,
Fr. John

Recorded YouTube Masses Ended June 20. For more than a year now, we have been sharing Masses on YouTube to minister to our four parish family during the pandemic. As we move forward with hope for a resolution to this pandemic, we have made the decision to end our YouTube Masses. We instead invite you to come to the in person Masses, which so wonderfully express our relationship to Jesus and to each other. We are so grateful for the ongoing support and engagement that people have shown over the past year. If you are unable to join us in person you can find links to other online Masses on our website at www.oldsaintmary.org/online-masses-and-devotions.
