Celebrating All God's People

Dear Friends:

June was a month of many celebrations secular and religious, among them baptisms, weddings, first communions, graduations, and retirements. We congratulate all who celebrated these big steps.

June is also a month where the church calendar was filled, in fact, perhaps more filled than other months. We celebrated:

Saint Justin the Martyr, who taught us that Jesus is God’s incarnation

Saints Marcellinus and Peter, priest and exorcist respectively

Saint Charles Lwanga and companions, who gave their life to fight evil

Saint Boniface, the monk who brought Christianity to Germany

Corpus Christi, the celebration of the source and summit of our faith

Saint Ephrem, one of the most notable hymnographers

Sacred Heart of Jesus, celebrated God’s boundless and passionate love for us

Immaculate Heart of Mary, celebrated the tenderness, charity and sweetness of the Lord

Saint Albert Chmielowski, who served the homeless

Saint Anthony, whose bread feeds the hungry

Saint Romauld, who struggled and conquered temptations against purity

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, cared for victims of an epidemic

Saint John Fisher, who defended the church
