From Fr. Godfrey
— PARISH ACCOUNTANT. Melanie McMinn has decided to resign her position effective July 17. Melanie leaves the position amicably, having brought us forward in so many ways, and plans to continue here as a parishioner, with her family. More information soon about a creative solution to attend to all the work she has done so well. Join me in thanking Melanie for her great work!
— THANK YOU to Fr. Ray Brenner for covering for me these two weeks while I’m away on vacation. Fr. Ray has many years of experience that will be obvious in his service here.
— INDEPENDENCE. Obviously, as we celebrate Independence Day, we have every reason to be grateful for the heroic work of establishing our country as an independent nation in 1776. Let’s give thanks to God, from whom we can never rightly be independent, for the good gifts he’s given. And let’s ask that our independence as a nation would also remind us of our responsibilities to all human beings. Happy Fourth!
— FISCAL YEAR. Our fiscal year ended June 30. We’ll be creating a financial report for the parish to review. But I do believe that your good stewardship of treasure, along with time and talent, has stood us in good stead. As always, I’m profoundly grateful for all the generosity of so many people who support the mission of our parish!
