The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity - May 27, 2018

Rev. Frank Portelli, Archdiocese of Toronto

Lectionary: 165
Reading 1 DT 4:32-34, 39-40

From the Pastor 05/27/18

These past few weeks have been very busy with Confirmation, First Holy Communions, and now graduations. It has also been a time for landscaping and I have been very busy. While doing landscaping some parishioners will see me in my boots, work jeans and tee shirts and say hello to me. Unfortunately because I am 50% deaf, many times I cannot hear people saying hello. My maintenance men mentioned to me that many times I do not respond back to parishioners’ greetings. I do want to apologize if for any reason you may say hello to me while I am outside working and fail to respond back. It’s just that most of the time with outside noise I am unable to hear people. Please know that in no way am I purposely not responding back to your greeting.
