In just a month from now, we will be celebrating our Parish Picnic.  There is certainly much to do to make the event a success.  We hope that you will make every effort to participate.  The picnic is one of the chief ways we celebrate ourselves as a parish under the protection of Our Blessed Lady’s Assumption.  Please take some time to see how you can volunteer to make this event successful.  Be sure to register to reserve a spot for your selves and your family.  We thank all those who have come forward thus far and strongly encourage others to do the same.  The success of this event depends on your willingness to be a part of it.  It is my hope to see as many of you as possible during this time of celebration.

As we celebrate the Feast of St. Benedict tomorrow, I would like to ask your prayers for Fr. Louis and me as we are members of the Order of St. Benedict: Fr. Louis for 14 years and me for 30 years.  I would also like to hold in prayer the Oblates of St. Benedict, particularly those from Assumption who strive to live the Rule of St. Benedict in the world around them.  May we prefer nothing to the love of Christ so that He may lead us to our heavenly home.
