A German proverb says that fear makes the wolf bigger than it is. When we are afraid, our imagination can run wild, we feel helpless and trapped and we fail to act. Just ask any kid who hides under the bed when he hears a scary noise in the middle of the night! The only sound he wants to hear is the reassuring voice of his mom or dad.READ MORE

After dinner at our parents’ home on Christmas Day, we were sitting at the table, reminiscing about the Christmas celebrations of our childhood. The middle brother picked up one of my mother’s in- credible cookies and held it up as he announced that this was the best memory of his childhood Christ- mas. He told the story of being ten years old and sneaking to the kitchen in the middle of the night, just to get a Christmas cookie. A second later, the cookie was gone and it became another part of his memories!READ MORE
Last weekend we had a successful re-opening of Masses at St. Columbkille Parish. Considering the restrictions and warnings for vulnerable people, we were pleased to have 287 people at the Masses. With the great help of our volunteers, all the procedures and guidelines for a safe opening were met. We are extremely grateful for the volunteers who stepped up to the plate. Please note the revised schedule for Sunday morning Masses and daily Mass. We look forward to Phase 2 of the Governor’s re-opening plan and how it will impact our ability to come together as a faith community. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
On a beautiful Saturday in May, I sat at a table in the park, reading term papers and enjoying the sights and sounds of spring. My favorite sound is that of little children laughing and squealing as mom and dad play games with them, or throw a ball or sit and eat a picnic lunch. It’s the perfect im- age of family. Love is in the air, infusing the mind and spirit with a sense of peace and joy. There is something about a toddler’s laugh that makes you smile with hope and happiness.READ MORE
