 Fr. Novajosky’s Note

 

Dear Members of the Cathedral Parish,

I am excited about my note this week because of the information that I have for you about the Word on Fire program, but first, I wish to give a quick update on the committees. As of this writing, the first meetings of four out of the six committees have come and gone.  Things started out a bit different than I had hoped, but things quickly went up.  

The very first committee scheduled to meet was the Buildings & Grounds Committee.  The 7:30 start time came and went and only William (Operations Manager and all-around Handyman when it comes to anything) and I were in attendance.  Needless to say, the meeting did not happen.  While I momentarily was a bit down and hoped that this was not the beginning of a trend, the next day things turned around.  One person did not have access to a car but wanted to be a part of the group.  Another was ill for the week.  And over the course of the next few days, others expressed their interest in the group and I look forward to our first gathering in February (date TBA).  

The other three committees that have met were Liturgy, Fellowship and Faith formation.  While there might be a stable group that will be active and regularly meet for each committee, the meetings are public events, therefore all are invited to attend whenever they wish and also to join the group at any time.  Look to the bulletin and website for information about future meetings.  The committees will communicate internally through Flocknote groups.  Liturgy discussed a bit the vision for the Sacred Liturgy and reviewed the new chants and programs (I wrote about it two weeks ago – hope you noticed!).  Fellowship discussed the next parish Party and Raffle on May 4 and also proposed a fair for next spring.  Faith Formation considered its role for the programs and the larger vision of the parish for formation and also got a preview of Word on Fire ENGAGE.  Communications was scheduled for last Wednesday but since it is Tuesday as I write this, I have no update.  The final committee will meet on Monday, February 4 at 7 PM in the Parish Center. The charge given to this committee is to conduct the corporal works of mercy and evangelize the community outside of the parish.  

For the last two months I have mentioned Word on Fire.  I am thrilled to say that I activated the parish subscription for the program and anyone in the parish can access the entire digital library of Word on Fire for FREE.  All you need to do is sign up for a free account with Flocknote, if you have not already done so.  If you have, once you login to Flocknote, whether on your computer or the app on your smartphone, you will have access to Word on Fire ENGAGE.  If you have any questions or problems, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.  I would be happy to assist, at some point.  The first study program will be Catholicism in Spanish lead by Fr. Alexis at 7 PM starting on February 8 at the Parish Center at St. Patrick.  I will lead Catholicism in English, but I still need to confirm the day and time.  You can find more information about the program on the website by clicking on the picture, the link or going to the Study Programs section.  

Have a great week and see you again soon. You are in my prayers daily, especially during the offering of the sac- rifice of the Holy Mass. Saint Augustine and Saint Patrick, our patrons, pray for us!

Fr. Novajosky
