From the Pastor's Desk
Clinging to Christ
So far, I have loved every minute of being your priest here in the Parish Cluster of Crosby/Deerwood/Hillman/Garrison. It has been full of meetings, a wedding, a funeral, Baptism preparation session, and a few visits to homes. I have felt warmly welcomed at every turn. Thank you! It spurs me on to serve with greater dedication and leadership so that our Lord Jesus Christ is known and loved even more here. I am showing many open slots in my evenings to visit you in your homes or get coffee during the day. I want to get to know you that I might serve you better as a spiritual father and priest.
These times are presenting us with a kind of crisis. When I write “crisis” you should read “decisive moment”. That’s the origin of the word “crisis” which Hippocrates and Galen originally used. This means we have a decision to either evolve or devolve. The way to flourish and evolve is in Jesus Christ. So we are called to cling to Christ now with a greater eagerness. Psalm 63:8 reads, “My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.” In times of uncertainty and unknown future realities, we are called to draw near to Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. Drop by the adoration chapel outside of your scheduled time as a way on spontaneously loving Him. Pope St. John Paul II’s personal secretary said that while he was pope he would drop by the Blessed Sacrament chapel around 20 times a day! This should encourage us to do similarly what we can, since he is here and waits for us.
Many of you may have questions about our schedules and parish events. I am still gathering information about much of it. I like continuity in general, so please know that. The Mass and confession schedule will remain the same as I get acclimated to everything. Groups in the parish can operate as usual. Please be at peace. I want you to know that I am here to help you get to heaven. Let us cling to Jesus and our choice be strong!

Mercy — both receiving it and granting it — is among the sweetest of human experiences, and of course it is at the very heart of the Gospel.
