Please RSVP to the Parish Center by Friday, June 17 for the Friday and Sunday night events. Celebrate George and his 13 years of service at St. Joan of Arc.
Oh yeah, we're celebrating all right! Whoo-hoo!! Maybe a bunch of us Catholics should go crash the party at the parish that day, to offer our own thanksgiving to God and "celebration" of George. [muahahahahaha]
Of course, this just makes me wonder... everyone knew since winter that "George" was "retiring" this July 1st. And yet there has been no word at all on his replacement. The current associate pastor, Fr. Cassidy still remains... and the SJA website "schedule of speakers" still shows the only priest as Fr. Cassidy through the next few months (and plenty of lay "speakers" at the liturgies... including some woman talking about "Parish Transition", I bet that'll be a great homily on the readings for the day, what do you think?)
