In Gratitude

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I take this opportunity to thank you for the beautiful celebration of my Silver Jubilee. I am especially grateful to our staff members and parish volunteers who planned and served the luncheon reception.
Special thanks to our musicians, servers, and other ministers who contributed to the beauty of the Holy
Mass. Most of all, I am most grateful to my siblings, my friends, and YOU, my parish family, for your warmth and kindness. Thank you all for making this such a special occasion!

As we return to Ordinary Time, many of the readings will focus on our discipleship and how we are called to live it in daily life. This period of time begins with two important solemnities. The first is today’s solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, a time to reflect on how each of our lives are rooted in the love of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Trinity is always before us as we make the Sign of the Cross, pray a Glory Be, or participate in the sacred liturgy when we pray with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in multiple ways and with many expressions. All of this points to the Blessed Trinity as the very source of our Christian life.

The second important observance takes place next week as we gather to celebrate the Solemnity of the
Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi). The Church sets aside this sacred feast to reassure us that Christ promises to remain with us until the end of the ages. Centered in the Eucharist, we are
called to commemorate the great sacrifice of His Body and Blood and receive food for our earthly journey.

This day is often marked with a solemn procession or time for adoration as a sign of our belief in
the Real Presence of the Holy Eucharist that Jesus Christ is truly with us in body and blood, soul and
divinity! Be sure to join us for the special times of prayer next Sunday afternoon.

May the Most Holy Trinity Father, Son, and Holy Spirit be upon you and remain with you now and

Joyfully yours,

Fr. Gurnick
