Holy Cross Weekly for January 27, 2019
There’s an anecdote told in a biography of Saint Teresa of Avila, which goes something like this: St Teresa and some companions were crossing a river when Teresa lost her footing in the swift water. “Oh, my Lord!” [Teresa] exclaimed, with her usual loving familiarity, “when wilt Thou cease from scattering obstacles in our path?” “Do not complain, daughter,” the Divine Master answered, “for it is ever thus that I treat My friends.” “Ah, Lord, it is also on that account that Thou hast so few!” was her reply. This little story came to my mind as I thought about all the winter weather hitting us on days with scheduled Masses and events. Although there is a slight chance of snow showers, hopefully, things will calm down for the weekend.
Due to the storm, we had to cancel the planned Memorial Service for John Brosseau. We have rescheduled this service with a potluck supper for Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Please plan on joining us that evening, which is also the Feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, commonly called Candlemas.
A Requiem Mass for Caroline Langworthy who died on January 6 is being planned. We’ll let you know more once we’ve set a date.
The Finance Committee will meet on February 1st at 4:30 p.m.
The February Vestry Meeting date has been changed to February 13 (Wednesday) at 7:00 p.m. Healing Mass on that day will be held at 6:00 p.m.
The roads sound like they’re pretty slippery today, so please use caution.
I hope I get to see you all on Sunday!
