First member of the Leadership Team is hired!

In the gospel reading today, Jesus assures the twelve apostles that he cares for them. There are numerous ways we can care for others. We can visit someone who is recovering from surgery or elderly and confined to home. We can bring a bereaved individual who has lost someone close to them a meal. Simply, we can offer someone a smile, a kind word or an embrace. Each of us can make a difference.

This weekend, Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in our St. Gregory Family of Parishes bids farewell to Dave Auxier after twenty-five years as Director of Liturgy and Music. In that time Dave has influenced and made a difference in many lives. We are grateful and wish him well. Dave will continue to serve on the Pathways Team for Beacons of Light in our family of parishes. He may be seeking a change of pace in life, but he is not leaving and will continue to worship in our family of parishes. For all you have done and for who you are, thanks Dave. May God bless you in your new endeavors.

The first member of the Leadership Team for the St. Gregory the Great Family ofnParishes has been hired. Michael Johnson will begin as the Director of Worshipnon July 1 for the family of parishes and the music director at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish. Michael comes to us from St. John the Baptist Parish in Harrison, Ohio as the Director of Worship and Music. We welcome him to our family of parishes.

These are signs to us that the Lord is looking out for us as he sends us what we need. Reach out and offer the Lord’s care to anyone you meet.
