I made a joke last week, and very few people understood it. I said that “Fr. Ron” was covering for “Fr. Ron” while he was on vacation. I was trying to be funny as I will not have a real vacation this year. All of us are suffering this Covid crisis. Even my sense of humor! 🙂
On Thursday I will celebrate a funeral Mass for Magdalena, the mother of long time parishioners, The Ason family. Please pray for the eternal rest of her soul.
I have a commitment this weekend, so you will not see me. Fr. Sebastian will be filling in for me.
There will be NO streaming this Sunday or next as Janet and Alex are out of town. We are studying the long term possibilities of making streaming permanent. But this project would cost money. If you would like to see this happen, please make a financial donation and put “streaming” in the concept. We have already invested money in the cabling. Despite our pleas, far too many parishioners have not been supporting the parish by bank transfers or paypal since March. The parish needs every person to do their part. So, it’s up to you.
William asked me to remind you about the retreat he will be giving:
There will be a spiritual retreat from the 19th to the 25th of July, at the Verbum Dei Spiritual Centre, Loeches, organized by the Verbum DEI Missionary Fraternity, Madrid. This is to help deepen our spiritual life and to regain contact with Christ after the long quarantine months. There shall be spiritual talks, meditation, spiritual direction, confessions and daily mass.
If you wish to attend, pls contact William (643 701 464). Registration is currently going on. Participation is 210€ (food and lodging inclusive).
I pray that you are coping with every new challenge, The new normal is not easy or normal at all. But with God, all things are possible.
Be blessed, always and everywhere,
Fr. Ron (Both of them, ha ha!)
