Dear Friends,

Come; pray with us this week, pondering this most important question.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

This week we continue to reflect on faith–what it is and what it is not.

Come; be with us!

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

  • Mass on Sunday, October 2, 2022 at 10 A.M. COVID restrictions still in place.
  • Being that we are very close to the feast of Francis of Assisi, October 4–one who loved all of creation; I would invite you to bring a picture of any pet that you share life with and we will have a special blessing for them. Because our space is small, it isn’t feasible to bring all your pets to Mass. 🙂
  • A question to ponder: how are we feeling about dropping the COVID restrictions? I feel that with all of us totally vaccinated, and each of us being very careful in our own, personal lives, we could try going without our masks, at first, and see how it goes. If we can manage to all stay well, then we can begin to remove other restrictions. A personal example: I was recently at my sister priests’ retreat and we went without masks, hugged and sang and no one became sick as a result. Unfortunately, COVID, like flu will be with us indefinitely, and I think like anything, we must just be careful. For myself, I will still wear a mask in stores as I don’t know who I am encountering, which is different at All Are One. Another thing that I am considering is offering the wine in individual cups as many places are doing now. Let me know how you feel about this.
  • One final question to consider: How would you personally feel about us having a potluck after the 4:30 Masses in November and December, one or both as in the past? I think these times are important for us as a community to try and do again and as with dropping other restrictions, I think we can do these things again safely. We could sit spread out a bit more than usual. Let’s think too about doing hospitality again. And as before, the majority opinion will rule. Please consider alternate ways to include these practices again in ways that you would feel safe. Thanks all!

Dear Friends,

This week’s readings encourage us to be strong in our faith; “to [soften] our hearts” and in fact, “to lead with our hearts,” in all that we do as Jesus’ followers.

Come; be with us this Sunday!

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Bulletin – 26th Weekend in Ordinary Time

Mass is on Saturday at 4:30 P. M. on September 24, 2022. COVID restrictions are still in place.

Dear Friends,

The challenge this week is to not be complacent–it would seem that trying to be our best, even if we at times fail is more acceptable in God’s eyes than, “not caring.”

Come; let us struggle over these issues together this week.

Peace and love,

Pastor Kathy

Dear Friends,

This week’s readings are all about mercy and the over-the-top love of our God. In these troubling times, keeping this in mind–that we are mightily loved is a good thing!
