WEEKLY PARISH NEWSLETTER (for Sunday, April 26, 2015, posted on April 20):


Dear Parishioners, Alumni, Friends and Religious Education Families,

This Sunday is Good Shepherd Sunday. The power of self-giving love is the most essential quality of a good shepherd. Shepherds come in all forms these days. Friends, teachers, parents, husbands, wives, children. However, to be called a GOOD shepherd, we need to go back to Jesus for the best description. The good shepherd knew his sheep well, and his sheep knew him. Just like a mother hears the cry of her child late at night or a child responds to his father’s whistle to come home for supper, the sheep and the shepherd knew one another’s sounds. At night, the shepherd and the flock would be grazing far from home. They would find a small sheep pen and the shepherd would call the sheep one by one, counting them as they went through the narrow gate. The shepherd would then lie down across the passageway, not only to keep the sheep in, but to keep out the thieves and the wolves. He became the sheepgate, willing to risk his life for his sheep. Just as Jesus is the sheepgate for us, so are we called to be the same for one another.

A very special Thank You to all those who baked and brought something wonderful for our two bake sales this past weekend. And thank you also to the organizers at both the Religious Education Bake Sale and the Bake Sale following the 10 AM Mass. And thank you for all those who bought something to take home! Our next Bake Sale is next Sunday, April 26, following the 11 AM Santa Susanna Mass in the Marymount Chapel. If you can bake and bring something, please contact Gabriella Castelli. Her email address is lallac at tin.it.

This weekend, Deacon Ryan Boyle is the homilist at the Saturday 5:45 PM and Sunday 9 AM Masses at Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, with Fr. Steve and Fr. Ken Thesing as presiders. Fr. Steve will also celebrate the 10 AM Mass at the Church of San Camillo and I will be the presider and homilist at the 11 AM Santa Susanna Mass in the Marymount Chapel with the Silva and Mansager Families providing non-dolce hospitality so as to complement the Spring Bake Sale.

Our next visit to the Caritas Food Kitchen is Saturday, May 3. Santa Susanna parishioners and their friends and associates are welcome to participate. However, you need to contact Marjie first. Her email address is mmontavon at libero.it

Our next and last Family Based Religious Education Session is Saturday, May 9. Benedictine Father Samuel Pusateri will speak to the parents about Prayer and Benedictine Spirituality. That same day we have our mandatory Confirmation Retreat from 10.15 until 7 PM. The First Communion Rehearsal is also Saturday, May 9 at 1.45 PM, followed by our last class for students and parents at 3.30 PM. Our Religious Education First Communion is Saturday, May 16, at 10.30 AM at San Camillo. Our Sacrament of Confirmation Mass is Saturday, May 23, at 5.30 PM at St. Patrick’s Church, with Cardinal James Harvey presiding.

Marymount Families, please, please do not be confused. First Communion for the Marymount students is Saturday morning, May 9, at 10.30 AM, at San Camillo de Lellis. The Marymount Confirmation Mass is Saturday, May 16, at 5.30 PM, at St. Patrick’s Church, with Cardinal William Levada. Needless to say, May will be a very busy and exciting month for the Santa Susanna community. Have a great week in the midst of this incredible spring. Ciao for now, Father Greg
