Dear Friends,

There will be no Usher’s Meeting on October 26th. I will be down in San Diego that week attending some meetings for the Archdiocese. I will reschedule the Ushers Meeting when I get back from San Diego.

I am now accepting dinner invitations for Friday Evenings. This is my way of getting to know you on your own home turf. Besides, I’m also looking for a good home cooked meal. If you would like to have me over for dinner, please give Rosemary a call in the Rectory Office and she will set up a date and time. I’ m really looking forward to this!

Beginning with First Sunday of Advent on November 27th, we will be offering you Communion under both form of bread and wine. The reason I’m telling you this now is that we need to change the way we receive Communion. Beginning today, I ask all parishioners to come to the center aisle when receiving Communion, where there will be 3 Eucharistic Ministers in the front. After receiving Communion, please exit by the side aisle closest to you. This will avoid people running into each other when we go to both forms. I also ask those people who are not too mobile to sit in the front pew so that we can bring you Communion and you will not have to leave your seat. Finally, I ask all of you to pick up your kneelers so that people can get by. I know change is difficult for some of you, but what we get in return is something much, much more: to receive Jesus under the forms of bread and wine is something so beautiful and profound that it give me goose pimples just thinking about it.

Lastly, we need more volunteers for Hospitality Sunday. If you are interested in helping out, please give Rosemary a call.

Have a great week!

Father Brian
