June 18, 2020 Parish Update

The mayor and I got back from the morning walk about 8 minutes earlier than usual.  Actually, the start time of the walk has been creeping up as the days have gotten longer.  The mayor and I both agree that walking after the sun or as the sun is coming up is preferable to long, dark, winter walks.  The longest day of the year happens this week.  From here on out the days will get shorter. Just yesterday morning the mayor noted that the longest day was coming.  He said, “The longest day of the year is coming and you...

TWELFTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

Posted by on Jun 18, 2020 in Church News, Homilies | Comments Off on TWELFTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

21 June 2020 Several summers ago a former student who now lives in the Cities, offered to take a group of us on a boat trip up and down the St. Croix. I had never been on the St. Croix so I said, “Yes.” My good friend Mike, also came along as well as several other former students. It was a good reunion and also a sad one. A couple of the students who used to be active at Newman, no longer go to church. We chugged up the St. Croix from Hastings, put in at Stillwater for lunch, and then up a little further, and then we turned around. Just as...

June 11, 2020 Parish Update

Yesterday on my walk with the mayor I found 15 cents laying in the middle of the pavement.  Finding money on the streets in Prescott is a rarity.  In Eau Claire I used to find money all the time, especially Saturday mornings along Water Street.  For people unfamiliar with Eau Claire, Water Street is the famous college bar street in Eau Claire.  On Saturday mornings I walked early occasionally the beer spilled on the sidewalks was still evident.  I could pick up as much as $5 on a good Saturday morning.  Finding a...

CORPUS CHRISTI

Posted by on Jun 11, 2020 in Church News, Homilies | Comments Off on CORPUS CHRISTI

14 June 2020 There is a wonderful story about a man who lived quite an extraordinary life. He encountered one hardship after another. His wife died, his children never visited him. His house was destroyed by fire, he lost his job. Through it all he never became cynical, always remained cheerful, never returned evil for evil. Then he died. When he arrived at the pearly gates everyone in heaven turned out to meet him– The prosecuting angel stood up first, drew everyone’s attention, pointed his finger at the man, and then said in a weak...

4 June Parish Update

Posted by on Jun 4, 2020 in Church News, Home Page Announcements | Comments Off on 4 June Parish Update

This morning on our walk the mayor indicated that I needed some other people to give me material.  He was pretty boring and had run out.  One of the issues with the Stay At Home regime through which we are all living right now is that we have limited contact with others.  In my case there aren’t a lot of other people to give me fodder for my weekly article.   Sometimes when walking I do run into Beth Voss.  But as many of you might know she is quite a determined walker and there is barely enough time for a...

THE HOLY TRINITY

Posted by on Jun 4, 2020 in Church News, Homilies | Comments Off on THE HOLY TRINITY

7 JUNE 2020 The Feast of the Holy Trinity does not have the sentimentality of Christmas, nor the ringing Alleluia’s of Easter. In fact it seems almost buried in the liturgical year, Just outside the boundaries of the fifty days of rejoicing, at the beginning of “ordinary time.” This is also the beginning of summer when we try to forget the harsh winter, cast our cares on warm breezes, sunshine and fishing. This is the time we slow down and most of us try not to think much. We could live well without this Trinity Feast, we’re looking for...
