Twilight Twitches

Twilight Twitches

Fifth Sunday of Lent
Dear Family,
This “Twitch” is being written on Sunday evening in anticipation of the following Sunday, which-as you read-is probably today - AND we’ve lost an hour of sleep last night, so don’t worry if you feel confused... I am.

As I type, we are anticipating our Eleventh Annual Andy Hurst Memorial Fish Fry and Auction and preparations are in full swing. OurAuction committee – Susan Mansolillo, Dr. Lourdes Cowgill and Dr. Marlene Fayette-Cowgill – are putting in countless hours after their workdays procuring and preparing items for display. It’s a lot of work that is borne on too few shoulders. Please know, ladies, that your time, talent, and your treasure are genuinely appreciated.

Fourth Sunday of Lent - by Nancy Adams
Dear Fellow Parishioners,
As you all know Monsignor Fetscher is in the midst of his physical repair work. He is now slowly recovering from his open heart surgery. From the cards and greetings he has received on the web site CaringBridge.org/visit (under the name jimfetscher) we know he is being closely watched and prayed for by his many friends.  Please keep the prayers and good thoughts coming. The goal is to have him ready to celebrate with the Parish on Holy Saturday.

Dear Family,
First of all I want to thank Mark and Noreen Rohleder who are the great proprietors of Waxy O’Connors Irish Pub (over the bridge on 17th Street on the way to grandma’s house.) I can’t tell you how unhappy I was about missing what seems to have been a major enjoyable event for our parish.

Andy Cooney’s Show was loved by all and fed to a glorious fare by Mark and Noreen. Their food was great and they brought a bit of the pub to Cooney’s show. Andy himself was thrilled with the turnout and the enthusiasm flowed over to the calendar so that before he left we have scheduled February 4, 2017 as the next show.

Dear Family,
Well, its Tuesday the 16th as I write. We just had the storm that uprooted one of our tabebuia argentas. Leo the tree man is coming and today - Sunday the 21st -you’ll see if he had any success. I’m hopeful because he planted our 18 Geiger trees and they all came through.

What a week! We started Lent with our parish retreat. Father Tom Boyer was surely a gift of the Holy Spirit. He’s been “retired” for more than three years and spends time between Naples where is sister and brother-in-law live, and Oklahoma City, his home diocese. He’s been giving missions to both priests and people and is enjoying his ministry a lot.
