Pastor's update 54 - July 30th
Hello everyone! We praise God for the ordination of a new priest for the Diocese of Columbus. Fr. Eugene Joseph was ordained a priest on July 22
. His ordination was delayed from the other two back in May as he is stuck in England due to his citizenship there. Hopefully, he will soon come back to the Diocese of Columbus as another laborer for the vineyard. Please continue to pray for more priests and religious in our diocese.
This Tuesday’s Mass at OLL on Aug 3
will be at 9am instead of 5:30pm. Deacon Mike will lead Adoration from 6-7pm, but there will be no confessions during that time.
At ICC, you will notice the St. Michael hymnals back in the pews. It seems safe to use them again and eliminates the need to make hymn sheets each weekend. The sanitizing spraying machine for the pews broke last weekend, so it seems providential that we can put the hymnals out to be used and not get wet.
