I love that today is on a Sunday so that we are going to be at Mass. What better way to offer up thanks for the freedoms we are privileged to enjoy and express our gratitude for all those who have fought for the freedoms some may take for granted.
Our parish is having a 4th of July picnic after the 11:30 a.m. Mass and we are planning to go. In addition to celebrating the holiday, the parish is also saying welcome back AND good luck on your next assignment to our pastor. He’s from the Philippines and his Bishop talked with him during his sabbatical about an important assignment that he has for him beginning in a year. So, we will be getting a new pastor mid-month.
Since there are no real fireworks displays going on up here (not dark enough to see them!), I thought I’d put up a virtual display here. Enjoy!
