WEEKLY PARISH NEWSLETTER (for Sunday, May 3, 2015, posted on April 27):


Dear Parishioners, Alumni, Religious Education Families and Friends,

Greetings as we approach the happy month of May and the upcoming Labor Day Weekend! I know that many of you might be away for a couple of days, but if not I hope to see you. This Sunday we hear the allegory of the Vine and the Branches. Jesus is the Vine in the sense that his vital energy courses through the whole plant and its branches and serves as its source of life. Jesus lives in his branches and his branches live in his life. If the life of Jesus flows through our veins we will bear much fruit. We will shine forth as a community called together and enlivened by the power of the resurrection. We will be a reconciling community, open to others and able to show the world that reconciliation with our enemies is possible. We ourselves will be the evidence of the presence of the Risen Lord in our own day and time.

A very special Thank You to all those who baked and brought something wonderful for our third Spring bake sale this past Sunday after the 11 AM Mass. And thank you for all those who bought something to take home! The total income for all three of our Bake Sales is well over a thousand euros! I mean, that is incredibly amazing! Complementi! Bravissimi!! Grazie tantissimo!!

Our next visit to the Caritas Food Kitchen is Saturday, May 2. 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

This weekend, Deacon Gregg Bronsema is the homilist at the Saturday 5:45 PM and Sunday 9 AM Masses at Santa Maria degli Angeli, with Fr. John Maher and Fr. Clyde Phillips as presiders. I will be the celebrant for the 10 AM Mass at the Church of San Camillo and Fr. Steve will be the presider and homilist at the 11 AM Santa Susanna Mass in the Marymount Chapel with the Tarullo Family providing hospitality, so we need one more family to volunteer, as well as volunteers for the rest of May.

Our next and last Family Based Religious Education Session is Saturday, May 9. Benedictine Father Samuel Pusateri will speak to the parents about Praying in Our Personal Encounters with the Lord. That same day we have our mandatory Confirmation Retreat from 10.15 until 7 PM. Remember that this is for our Santa Susanna Religious Education Confirmation students only!

The Santa Susanna Religious Education First Communion Rehearsal is also Saturday, May 9 at 1.45 PM at San Camillo de Lellis, followed by our last class for students and parents at 3.30 PM. If needed we will have a second shorter rehearsal on Thursday, May 14 at 4.00 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, 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
