January 20, 2019 – A View from the Rectory Window

WE ARE THE DEFENDING CHAMPS!

I waited to write this View.  It is Monday morning, January 14, and we are not going to Atlanta.  While many prayers were lifted up on behalf of and for ‘Saint Nick’ – the ‘miracle’ run has ended.  But much like the Philadelphia Eagles, I believe our parishioners are still the reigning champions.  For last year we began as a parish family what I hope to be a constant tradition and expression of faith:


CEREAL BOWL

Our hope again is to cover 100 yards of a football field with boxes of cereal  from one End Zone to another.  Each box will be measured as the equivalent of one yard.  Last year we collected 120 boxes for the Saint Casimir Thrift Shop and over 600 boxes for Church of the Resurrection Food Pantry.  While New Orleans may lay claim to the moniker, ‘The Saints’, I believe your generosity reflects who truly wears this title.  I thank you for your generosity on behalf of our sisters and brothers.

I invite you to bring a box of healthy cereal to the Food Pantry containers located in the Church of the Resurrection and to the foyer of the Church of Saint Casimir over the weekends of Sunday, January 27 and Sunday, February 3, 2018, or to the Thrift Shop during regular business hours. Thank you for your unceasing goodness, 

Fr. Pete
