Good Morning Everyone,
I can’t quite believe that we are in the month of June. I had hoped that by now we could gather as a faith community, but we are told to wait and wait we must.
This past week we lost two of our parishioners Umberto Erba and Rodrick Moore, may they rest in peace.
Cloth face masks are still available for sale at a cost of $5.00 each available Tuesday – Thursday from 10:00am – 2:00pm. Please knock on the office door for admittance into the building. Please wash the masks once you get them home and continue to wash them as they are used. All proceeds will support St. Gregory’s Church. If you know of others who are looking for masks please let them know.
Plants are still available outside the office doors at a cost of $2.00 or a donation. (chives, thyme, oregano, mint, ground cover, hens and chicks, lambs breath.. and a a few inside plants as well). Empty envelopes are in the mail box, payment can be placed in the mail slot in the office door.
This weekend the church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity and we ask that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit flow through us to those most in need of God’s simple and saving love.
On a personal note, being of Portuguese (Azores) decent the Holy Spirit is celebrated by participating in the Festa or Imperio do Espirito Santo (Festivals of the Holy Spirit) this normally is a time to gather as a community of faith by attending mass, parades, and a meal of meat, bread and wine followed by traditional dancing. These events are run by many volunteers who do an excellent job of preserving the culture but due to the coronavirus it was all cancelled.
I hope that we all can return to our celebrations very soon, birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions and even the Imperio’s. Stay strong and Safe until next week.
One more thing, I want to encourage everyone to visit our advertisers (found in the back of the bulletin), they do a wonderful job of supporting our church.
