THANK YOU for your generous offerings. We must join our monetary sacrifices to the sacrifices of our prayers for our Community to flourish in faith, hope, and charity. God bless you!

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE Checks should be made payable to “St. Kateri Tekakwitha-Latin Mass Community” OR for short, “SKT-LMC”. If you do not have pre-printed envelopes, contributions can be placed in the blue envelopes OR loose in the collection baskets. Contributions deposited in envelopes from neighboring parishes will be returned to those home parishes and will not be credited to SKT-LMC. SKT-LMC envelopes deposited in neighboring parish collections will be returned and credited to us. Please be aware that, even though the SKT-LMC operates financially under ST. KATERI PARISH, the SKT-LMC does not subsidize ST. KATERI PARISH, and ST.KATERI PARISH does not subsidize the SKT-LMC. We must rely on our own monetary income to support our activities and facilities.

IF YOU HAVE FOUND A SPIRITUAL HOME in our Latin Mass Community here at St. Thomas’, please consider registering with us. Use the census forms found at the entrance door tables. On the top write in clear letters “LMC”. Place form in the collection basket. Welcome!

WE DO NEED VOLUNTEERS to help maintain our facilities, especially in the area of church and parish center cleaning. We need YOU! Please email [email protected] or call 467-8747. Enough volunteers will enable us to have rotating teams.

CHURCH FLOWERS. Interested in helping once a month with flowers for the church?  Please contact Ginny Maurer at 368-8869.

THE EUCHARISTIC ADORATION CHAPEL, adjacent to the Parish Center must continue to be a very important powerhouse of prayer for us and for people in our area. Hours of adoration are on Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM to 10 PM (11 PM on Tuesday and Friday). WE NEED MORE ADORERS TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY HOUR IS COVERED. Please consider signing up for an hour or being on the substitute list. Contact Marie O’Leary at 467-1982.

CASE TRAINING The Diocese of Rochester requires volunteers who work with children, youth or vulnerable adults to participate in Creating a Safe Environment (CASE) training.  If you plan to volunteer for a ministry that involves working with children, youth or vulnerable adults, you will need to take the class on-line from your home computer or attend a training session. Please call or email Kathy Beauchamp at 484-1810 or email [email protected] for further instructions.

CARMELITE MONASTERY On July 12, the homily/sermon at our Masses was about the Carmelite tradition and the history of the Discalced Carmelites at 1931 W. Jefferson Road in Pittsford. Interested in knowing more about their purpose and way of life? They have a website: “Check it out.”

A FINAL FAREWELL was given to Father Joseph Lanzalaco, C.S.B., this past Wednesday July 29, when his Funeral Mass and Burial took place. Many people turned out for his Wake and Funeral—not surprisingly, because he was a humble man, devoted priest, and good friend to many in our area. Father Lanzalaco served St. Thomas the Apostle as parochial vicar and assisting priest during the pastorate of Father Robert Bradler. Requiescat in pace.

Long-time Latin Mass member, choir singer, altar server, and Master of Ceremony, STEVE LEWIS, is preparing to enter St. John’s Seminary in Boston next month as a seminarian for our Diocese. (Cheers!) On Sunday, August 16, a “temporary” good-bye gathering is being planned in his honor. We will meet at Keenan’s Restaurant on East Ridge Road at 2:30PM. Ordering will be off the menu (with separate checks). Space is limited so please call Bob and Mary Ellen Gilkinson (388-7734) by Thursday, August 6th for reservations.
