OUR LADY OF VICTORY
PLEASE SEE TAB ON LEFT FOR UPDATED INFORMATION
A Note from Father Alan,
"The Spirit is a moving, all over, all over this land!" Some of you may remember this Spirit/Pentecost song from the ‘60’s! As a youngster it alerted me to the excitement, the reality, and the presence of the Holy Spirit always at work, "renewing the face of the earth". May the Holy Spirit continue to give each Christian, each of us the gifts we need to live holy and just lives. May the Spirit lead us more deeply into the truth of all that Jesus has revealed to us, and help us to share and pass on these truths to others. Happy Pentecost!
This Sunday afternoon at 2:30 you are invited to gather with me at St. Otto’s Cemetery for a brief Memorial Day prayer service. We will pray for those who have died serving their country, but also for all of our other deceased loved ones and all whose remains lay in our cemetery. If you like, bring a lawn chair and, if the sun isn’t shining, an umbrella!
Update on Father Lucho: He is doing pretty well, ready to begin part-time parish ministry and living at the Cathedral rectory in Chimbote, Peru. The leukemia is being managed to a great extent, but the side effects from the medication remain. Pray that the recent mailing of medicine arrives safely! Thanks for ALL your prayers! There are two opportunities coming up for mission trips to Chimbote, to experience the work being done so lovingly among some very poor Peruvian people, and to see Fr. Lucho. Approximate dates are the first week of August, and February 7-14. The August trip is being led by Susan Trnka, the executive director of FRIENDS OF CHIMBOTE, an organization with headquarters in Fargo. For more information, please contact me or go to this website: www.friendsofchimbote.org. You can also pick up a Spring 2015 newsletter of Friends of Chimbote at the parish office.
As we keep our high school and college graduates in our prayers, we also remember our OLV kindergarten graduates (this Wednesday at 10:00!) and our OLV sixth graders (graduation Mass on Friday, 9:00 a.m.)
Happy last week of school to all Fergus Falls grade school and high school students, faculties and staffs!
Come Holy Spirit, renew the face of the earth!
