Fishing with St. James

Sunday, May 28, 2017

On this Memorial Day weekend we honor all those who have served our country. We pray for all of our loved ones who have gone before us in faith. Here is a traditional catholic blessing at the “Rite of Committal:” Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. R. And let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. R. Amen. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. R. Amen. Please note in the bulletin a request to...  continue reading

While our church observes May as the “month of Mary” our culture also celebrates “Mother’s Day.” Incarnational theology honors the truth that God can be found everywhere — in nature, in art, in reading and meditation and music, inside and outside of churches. This leads me to believe that God is especially found in the holy chaos and sacred order of home life. The Spanish mystic Teresa of Avila wrote, "God is found in the pots and pans." The Latina...  continue reading

This Sunday we have been in our renovated space for one year, one week and six days (the dedication anniversary was April 24). The three year pledges to the “Come, Live in the Light” Capital Campaign will be completed this December. In January of 2018 we will begin paying off the anticipated $1.2 million remaining on the debt.  Our current 2016-2017 budget includes a $2,000 monthly interest payment which is paid from our weekly tithe. Ron Dobesh, our parish...  continue reading

Ordained into the ministerial priesthood I share in our bishop’s three-fold ecclesial ministry of teaching, sanctifying, and governing. The “governing” or administrative part of my ministry takes shape in consultation with the parish council, finance committee, other committees, groups, individuals and parish staff. This was a significant part of my ministry here during renovation of our church building. In this administrative role, I want to let you know of some of our...  continue reading

The Octave of Easter comprises the eight days which stretch from the first to the second Sunday. It is a way of prolonging the joy of the initial day. In a sense, every day of the Octave is like a little Sunday. This Sunday is also designated as “Sunday of Divine Mercy.” “Mystagogy” or "Mystagogia" is a word meaning "going deeper into the mysteries"- that is, into the truths of the faith. Mystagogia describes the ancient custom of spending the fifty days of Easter...  continue reading

In the gospel this Sunday, Jesus gives sight to a man who was blind from birth. The Pharisees branded Jesus as a sinner since he healed on the Sabbath. When people are only looking around for sin and labeling others as “sinners” they become blind to grace and healing. The newly seeing man said to the Pharisees, “One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see.” (John 9:25) This spiritual healing is available now to all who encounter Jesus. I hope in the...  continue reading
