Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

News and Notes:

2019 Catholic Appeal Update… As of June 10, St. Maria Goretti parishioners had pledged $32,960, which is 78% of their goal of $42,207; and Our Lady of the Assumption parishioners had pledged $53,153, which is 80% of their goal of $66,232.  Thanks to all our donors thus far. If you have not yet made a pledge to the Catholic Appeal, please fill in a pledge card and drop it in the collection basket or go online to and make a pledge on behalf of your parish.  By doing so, you will support the 50 plus Central Ministries of the Catholic Church in our area and at the same time help your parish pay its expenses.  Let’s all do what we can to reach our goals!

Priestly Anniversaries… Fr. Tony celebrated his 32nd anniversary of ordination to priesthood on May 31 and I celebrated my 38th anniversary on June 20.  We are both blessed to serve the Church as your priests!

Blessings to all of you in the summer days ahead!
