From the Pastor's Desk
I will be away for a few weeks of vacation. I will be absent the weekend of July 13-14. I will be back from the weekend of July 20-21. Fr. George will be covering in my absence, I am very appreciative of his willingness to help me during these days.
A reminder that we will be having town-hall meetings for the St. Joseph parishioners regarding the building process. These will be after the Masses in the social hall on July 20th and 21st.
We are hosting a Sacred Music Workshop at St. Joseph’s on October 24th – 26th. Registration is available on our website (cuyunacatholic.org). This is open to anyone who is interested, and even to those who are from other parishes or outside the diocese. If you know someone who you think would be interested feel free to invite them and direct them to the website for registration and further details. There is a tentative schedule posted as well as some bio information on the presenters.
Our parish has been blessed with two young men who are currently discerning a possible call to the priesthood. Phil Stokman who is studying for the Priestly Fraternity of the Missionaries of St. Charles Borromeo, has been studying for several years now, and has now taken the important step of Candidacy. This means he is intending to continue with formation towards the priesthood and he can now wear clerical garb. You may know that he has been studying in Italy, but will now do a year of missionary work in England. He is home visiting for some days here. Another young man from our parish, who is just starting the process of discernment is Zavior Franck. Zavior will be starting his studies at Immaculate Heart of Mary, the seminary on the campus of St. Mary’s University in Winona MN. He has been completing the application process this spring and is now accepted as a seminarian for the Diocese of Duluth.
It’s a great joy to see their response to God’s call. It takes quite a while to discern the priesthood both for the individual as well as for the Church. It is good to remember that this is a process of discernment, and that when a man enters the seminary, it doesn’t necessarily mean he is going to be a priest. Being in the seminary is sort of like dating and becoming a Candidate for ordination is sort of like engagement. In both cases there is still freedom to step away, but in both situations, there is an appropriate level of commitment and discernment that is happening. Please pray for all our seminarians but in particular we as a parish have the fortune of praying for and supporting our own.
We have never had a priest come from our parishes. It’s a good sign of a healthy parish if there are vocations coming from the parish in all forms, but I would say having religious sisters and brothers or priests from a parish is a particular sign of the presence of a strong Catholic culture.
I will be praying for you all while I am away, may God grant you peace while I am away,
