MESSAGES FROM FATHER JIM

In your prayers kindly remember the sick and those who care for them, the lonely, the handicapped, those isolated, and those who have died.
IN MEMORIAM – Grace Bryson

INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY –Theme: The Wisdom of Renunciation – Worldly wisdom and God’s wisdom are often at odds. The book of Wisdom, written in a sophisticated intellectual milieu about 100 B.C., speaks of the inestimable value of that wisdom which comes from God; it is the path to life with true meaning and far surpasses the riches of this world. In the gospel, the man who approaches Jesus seeks that wisdom which leads to life. The response of Jesus is clear, but the price is costly. He calls for radical decision. The letter to Hebrews sees the word of God as penetrating and incisive. That word is true wisdom, but it can also be deeply disturbing in its demands.

From the Rector’s Desk Dear Parishioners, as you are already aware much work has been done to the exteriors of the Cathedral and the Rectory.  Now begins the renovations to the interior of the Rectory as well as the Chancery Office.  The Parish office will move to an office trailer which will be placed on the property.  We are hoping for a smooth transition of the parish and cemetery office to its temporary location.  Presently we are sorting through 140 years of accumulated material.  Due to this we have been closing our parish office at 3 p.m. from Monday to Thursday and all day on Fridays to accomplish this task.  The long history of the Bishop’s Palace will once again be added to by incorporating apartments for our retired priests as well as for the Rector and others.  It is hoped that we will retaining as much of the beauty of the original as possible.  In the mean time we ask for your prayers and patience with us and to know that the bulletin may be a little dull for a while as we make these changes.  Thank you so much.

Thanksgiving Weekend. The Rectory Office will be closed on Monday, October 11th, and will reopen on Tuesday, October 12th at 9:00 a.m.
