The angels are bringing us rain, lots of rain, as I write this on the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. We’ll probably be doing our rosary indoors, I think. This is good, as it makes the prayer so much more powerful before the Blessed Sacrament Exposed.
Fr. Ramolla fractured his forearm the other day. Please pray for a good and thorough recovery for this busy priest. Fr. Ramolla is in Milwaukee today, and I am in Columbus, with Fr. McGuire here for confessions, along with Fr. Cekada, who has now completed his seminary course for the school year. Our school year here is winding down as well, and we are planning our Baccalaureate Mass for Trinity Sunday.
We had more participants in our Jog-a-thon this year than last, and more fun! What a pleasant gathering – simple and full of life. The picnic at “Gerry’s place” was enjoyable too. Thanks to all who worked so hard, harder than last year, to make it work. We’ll hear the results, and receive lots of rewards, on Pentecost, May 31st. I don’t know about you, but I certainly was tired that Saturday afternoon. I admire the stamina of those who managed shopping afterwards, or moving the Kunkels into their new home.
Last year we were still collecting for the convento. Now it is almost finished. Thank you so much for your support. We are laying a path to the Lourdes Grotto, and doing a bit more landscaping on the grounds.
Reverend Mr. Julian Larrabee will be ordained a priest at Queen of Martyrs Church in Detroit on Wednesday morning, July 1st. Plan to attend this moving ceremony if you are able.
Keep up your May Altars this week, and keep your prayers going up to Heaven.
God Bless you! -Bishop Dolan
