Last weekend the parish celebrated the 20th Anniversary of LifeTeen. The weekend was filled with activities and great joy. On Friday evening many of the past members of the program came together for dinner and prayer. They spoke of their fond memories and the impact the program and the parish has made in their lives. Saturday was a time of fun and family. The back parking lot was transformed into a mini-festival. Seeing so many families come together was truly a blessed time in the life of this parish family. Sunday was the Anniversary Mass. The many priests, Bishop Kennedy, and a packed Church was a resounding manifestation of the importance of this program. Please continue to keep the program in your prayers as we prepare to enter the next 20 years. Also, congratulations to the first LifeTeen director, Sean Flynn. On Sunday the Life House was dedicated in his honor. God is good and may He continue to bless all in our parish family. We are blessed here at St. Mary’s and I am honored to be your pastor!
