He will be Ordained a Priest

07-26-2020Pastor's LetterFr. Richard W. Fitzgerald

Our Transitional Deacon, Matthew Norwood, as many of you may know, was scheduled to be ordained a priest last May but the Covid pandemic interrupted that planned date. On Saturday, August 1, at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, Deacon Matt will be ordained a Priest of Jesus Christ by Cardinal Sean O’Malley. Even though there will be significant restrictions relative to attendance at the ordination due to the virus, it will be a wonderful day for Matt and his family and friends. The following day he will celebrate his First Mass at his home parish of Saint Paul in Wellesley.

Back in March, some second graders planted a bunch of tomato seeds and now, months later, my garden has more than a few tomato plants. They stop by the garden almost everyday, watering the plants and looking for the first signs of fruit. The young gardeners learned that it takes a lot of work to get from seed to salad!

For the greater part, all has gone smoothly thanks to the help of numerous volunteers serving to direct parishioners who have returned.

Under the huge oak tree in the yard, my 5-year-old niece was shocked to discover that the huge tree had begun as a small acorn, just like one of many she found on the ground. She could not believe that something so large began as something so small.

A community work project took place on a hot and humid morning. College students helped younger students, keeping a watchful eye on them as they were picking up trash, painting playground furniture and hanging new signs. Halfway through the morning, everyone headed for the shade of a weeping willow tree and a drink of ice-cold spring water. It really was refreshing. The shade and the water revived us and we were ready to finish our work. Everyone had a good time and contributed to our success.
