With the July 4th holiday behind us, I offer my prayerful best wishes to all the clergy, religious and faithful of the Diocese. May the summer season be a time of well-deserved relaxation, enjoyable times with family and friends and more opportunities for growing closer to the Lord Jesus.  As we continue to celebrate the diocesan phase of the national Eucharistic Revival, don’t forget to get to Mass and receive Holy Communion each Sunday throughout the summer months. Stop in Church to pray while you have a little extra time.  Life is always happier and better when we include the Lord Jesus in our plans. God bless you all!
