May 2015

The month of May is dedicated to The Blessed Virgin Mary. The first 24 days fall within the liturgical season of Easter, which is represented by the liturgical color white — the color of light, a symbol of joy, purity and innocence (absolute or restored). The remainder of the month (beginning the Monday after Pentecost) is in Ordinary Time which is represented by the liturgical color green. This symbol of hope is the color of the sprouting seed and arouses in the faithful the hope of reaping the eternal harvest of heaven, especially the hope of a glorious resurrection.

As Spring blossoms forth and we are surrounded by new life, we spend this month full of the joy of our Easter celebration and in anticipation of the coming of the Holy Spirit, our Consoler and Advocate.

It is with joyful anticipation that I am looking forward to celebrating with all of you the upcoming festivities surrounding my Ordination to the Priesthood.  The Ordination will take place at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in Greensburg on Saturday, June 20 at 10:00 AM.  The parish will be providing bus transportation to the Cathedral for the Ordination and reception to follow at the Bishop Connare Center near Greensburg, where refreshments will be served and first blessings will be offered.  Due to limited capacity, only those who travel on the bus will be able to attend this reception.
The bus will depart from Christ, Prince of Peace at 8:00 AM and will return at approximately 4:00 PM.  The total number of seats on the bus is 56; please contact the parish office by June 1st if you are interested.  There will be a block of pews reserved at the Cathedral for those who travel on the bus.  Please know that anyone is welcome to attend the Ordination, although seating will be on a first come-first serve basis. 
It is with great joy and gratitude that I will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving in honor of my Ordination to the Priesthood at Christ, Prince of Peace on Sunday, June 21 at 3:00 PM.  Anyone is welcome to attend this Mass, which will fulfill the Sunday obligation.  At this liturgy, I will be privileged to celebrate the Eucharist for the first time at our parish.  There will be a reception immediately following the Mass at Lenape Heights Golf Resort, where heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served and first blessings will be offered.  Please contact the parish office by June 1st if you plan on attending this reception.
I am very much looking forward to celebrating these days with all of you as I begin my life of priestly service in the Church.  Please keep me in prayer, as I know you always do, during this final period of preparation for my Ordination to the Priesthood.
