My dear parishioners,

 

This weekend marks the beginning of my third year at Saint Sebastian’s. Where does the time go? It seems like yesterday that I was looking over my new kingdom. I remember turning onto Cole Avenue and seeing the beautiful parish church, the manicured grounds, and the vary comfortable rectory. I am proud of being your pastor and I am enjoying ministering in your midst.

 

We had a great parish picnic last weekend! God blessed us with a beautiful summer day. The was weather was just perfect for a parish event. We were lucky because David Belanger was on vacation from his new job so he, alongside Jaime Carrera, our maintenance man, set up the tables and chairs, prepared the serving tables, cooked the hamburgers, hot dogs, pulled pork and beans. You and your fellow parishioners brought delicious side dishes and desserts, Thank you!

 

When I spoke several weeks ago with Karen Schrott and Grace Dugan-Pizzuti, they enthusiastically supported the idea of a parish picnic. I also want to mention Marie Brito who did lots of behind the scenes work to make the picnic a success. Young Dominic Conti brought up the tables and chairs.  In between Masses there were  number of women who cut the rolls and prepared a number of things. If I forgot to mention you please know I thank you.

 

Many of you are going away for the summer. Mass attendance is already lower than normal. I pray you have a great summer and that wherever you go for the summer you find a Catholic church where you can attend Sunday Mass. Be safe..

God Bless…

Monsignor Montecalvo
