THE PADRE'S PORTION 

                                                                                                                       Brothers and Sisters – The Devastation of Summer; what is it? Well, in the Church world, this is what happens when people disappear from Church attendance, and financial giving takes a down turn. In the long honored tradition of the Church, people have felt greatly satisfied in being able to put their gifts in the offering basket. But, when families go on vacation, or get involved in summer-time activities, the giving part gets lost in the shuffle. By the way, this is NOT a Padre Portion on Giving. What I would like it to be is ‘taking a fresh look’ at summer Mass attendance.  If we know ahead that many of our Sundays will be victim to travel and activities, let us try new ways of our walk with Christ. Maybe families could take up attending a Mass of the week; the Tuesday or Thursday evening Masses? The Home-Schoolers do a Mass bi-monthly; Tuesdays at 9:00am at Holy Trinity. Maybe, a parent could take up a morning Mass, treating the kids after to breakfast as a fun summer activity? I might even offer that trying other parishes offers the chance for mini-trips to other parts of our region.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          –Fr. David Tate                                                                                              Parish Administrator
