Bulletin Updates

Guests and fellow parishioners,

It has been a crazy couple of months. I finally have uploaded some of the more recent bulletins. Please feel free to download them when you get a chance.

We have a couple of weekly liturgies here and there coming up. For example, one this upcoming Tuesday (October 1st) at 5 PM.

We will still have our normal Saturday vigil liturgies at 5 PM and confession available before the Liturgy (4:15-4:45).

Please feel free to call the parish if you have any questions.

In Christ,
Kyle Gibson

Memorial Day Reflection

THE FINAL INSPECTION

The soldier stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining, Just as brightly as his brass. “Step forward now, you soldier,How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To My Church have you been true?” The soldier squared his shoulders and said, “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t. Because those of us who carry guns,Can’t always be a saint. I’ve had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was tough. And sometimes I’ve been violent,Because the world is awfully rough. But, I never took a penny, That wasn’t mine to keep… Though I worked a lot of overtime, When the bills got just too steep. And I never passed a cry for help, Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God, forgive me, I’ve wept unmanly tears. I know I don’t deserve a place, Among the people here. They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fears. If you’ve a place for me here, Lord, It needn’t be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don’t, I’ll understand.” There was a silence all around the throne, Where the saints had often trod. As the soldier waited quietly, For the judgment of his God. “Step forward now, you soldier, You’ve borne your burdens well. Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets, You’ve done your time in Hell.”

Remember, it is the Soldier, not the reporter Who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the Soldier, not the poet, Who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the Soldier Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag, and Whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.
