Weekend Masses continue to go well: parishioners are very cooperative and the ministers do a good job of ordering everyone around!
This morning we will record the Mass for this coming weekend. It is recorded early, so that Bobby Pantuso has time to edit it. We also prepare a Mass each week for Wauwatosa Catholic (the recording of the parish Mass is altered with a new introduction, a homily and petitions for the children, and a different conclusion). The teachers then use it in their classrooms. The homily is designed for the students to interact at various points with the teacher.
This afternoon I will have an in-person memorial Mass for the art teacher, Mrs. Mary Beth Fox, who died recently. A few representatives from various classes will attend in person; most of the school will watch it live streamed into their classrooms. That Mass will be at St. Bernard’s. Please keep our staff and students in your prayers.
The staff meets later this morning to share how the various ministries are going. Please accompany us in prayer and continue to pray and work for equality, justice, and peace in our city, state, country, and world.
Have a good day and be safe. God bless.
