Note from the Pastor
Having dinner with St Mary’s new Pastor, Fr. Evelio, tonite. He is a marvelous priest!
Cardinal Wuerl has appointed Deacon Alton Davis, Jr to a diaconal ministry at St. Matthias Parish effective August 15, 2015. Deacon Davis will assist at Masses as well as serve the ministry of charity and justice to the homebound of the parish. More news in the next bulletin.
God is so good to us. Praise his name in thanksgiving.
tomorrow evening or Sat morn I will disappear from the scene for a few days away from the parish to celebrate with some 45/120 cousins gathering in Ocean City.
On Tuesday Fr Francis will arrive from Nigeria. I am confident some from the African community will invite him to dinner until I return on the 9th.
Be certain to tell him how fortunate he is to be living with me at Ignatius House!!!!!! Most likely I will be the blessed to be living with him.
Have a great holiday!
The African Community welcomes all Mothers (plus spouses and children) to a reception following the 10:30 Mass on Mother’s Day, May 10th. The place: Friendship Hall.
After some years of service to our parish, Mrs. Mary Young decided it was better to separate herself from her employment at the parish.
We are blessed to have volunteers who are helping us to fill in accomplishing the weekly work Mary did for the parish. Mass Cards are being cared for. The bulletin was prepared, sent to the publisher and will be in the church this weekend. Messages are being cared for by volunteers. We could use a few volunteers for several works if you are free.
May God be with you, Mary, in the days ahead. Enjoy your new freedom.
