"I give you a new commandment: love one another."

The Christian believer must seek to love as God loves, and to share love as abundantly as God shares it with his creation. Love is the very hallmark of the Christian life.

We are now closer to Ascension and Pentecost than Easter, but we are still in the Easter Season. The readings this Sunday begin to move us along too, as once more we hear the Lord at the Last Supper preparing his disciples for his departure: he does this by giving them a rule to live by, a new commandment. This commandment, love one another, is to be the guiding light of the community of believers after Pentecost.

It is with a very full heart that I thank each and every one of you for the amazing party celebrating my 30th Anniversary to the Priesthood. So many of you came out to share this day with me. I am truly thankful for the many hours of hard work that you put in to make it such a beautiful evening. May God Bless you all. Fr. Jan

Father Jan's Ordination Anniversary and Birthday celebration was held on Monday, May 13th in our large hall. The potluck dinner was absolutely delicious and there was plenty leftover. The "String Beans" entertained with their violins and cellos those who were there. The event was extremely well-attended as you may see for yourself by watching a brief slide show by clicking HERE.

During Fr. Jan’s vacation we welcome Fr. Bastian Leclerc who will be celebrating Mass Wed., Thurs., Fri. & Sat. May 22, 23, 24 & 25 at 5 pm. Fr. Frank Franz will join us on Wednesday May 29.

We would like to thank Father Jan and all the Parishioners of St. Patrick’s who prayed for our daughter Eileen Beckett. After a hard year, she is cancer free. Again, our heartfelt thanks. God Bless you all. Veronica & Robert Cotnam
