Welcome to Notre Dame Church
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Let me bring you up to speed with some things going on in the parish.
Congratulations to seven Notre Dame parishioners who last week completed a four-year course and graduated from the Denver Catholic Biblical School. They are:
Alexandra Arias ~ Colleen Caroll ~ Jeanie Holland
Evan Ortiz ~ Harry Schreiber ~ Becky Stano
I am proud of them for their love of the Lord and the Sacred Scriptures. I pray they, and all of us, always love the Scriptures, learn the Scriptures, and live from the Scriptures.
The Catholic Biblical School is a great two- or four-year study of the bible; it is designed for “everyday” parishioners. Talk to me or any of these graduates if you have an interest in studying and loving the bible more.
Regarding our search for a new director of liturgy/music; evangelization and religious education; and family, youth, and small Christian communities — I have conducted extensive interviews for each of these positions. The interviews will be finished this week. Hopefully next week I will be able to announce the hiring of persons to fill one or the other of these positions. Tomas, our director of religious formation, and Ken, our youth minister, will be with us until the end of June.
Our grade school closes out another successful year this Friday. This was the 50th anniversary year of the school and, if I dare say so, one of its best! Congratulations to our students, parents and families, teachers and administrators, benefactors and supporters for your hard work and study this past year. Have a great summer; I’ll see you back in August. We still have room for more students next year. Contact me if you want to consider enrolling your children in our excellent grade school. And to our students not returning, we assure you of our prayers and best wishes.
Father Albert Berkmans, our new parochial vicar, arrives on June 14. I’ll introduce him to you at all the Masses that next weekend.
I move into the new parish rectory a week from tomorrow (Monday). Remember, though, that I will still carry out my ministry as pastor from the rectory office.
The current rectory will be shut down for refurbishing on August 1. The staff and I will move into the current RE house, youth house, and into classroom 109. It will take 4-5 months of work to refurbish the current rectory. It will be reopened after the first of the new year.
Finally, parents, the Catholic version of Vacation Bible School—Totus Tuus—is set for June 25-30. Children and youth in grades 1-12 are ALL welcome. Check out page 7 of the bulletin for more details and to sign up. It is a great week.
Don't forget to pick up some grocery gift cards for the leading grocery stores. They make great gifts too. You can purchase yours after all the Masses.
