How the summer passes so quickly! Pentecost,
which we celebrate this weekend is extremely late... but
always a joyous, life-giving event. Our bishop has
delegated the priests of the diocese to confirm certain
people at the feast, and we are proud to do so this
weekend, along with a baptism. This is a marvelous
display of faith and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
May God continue to bless you and guide you.
Fr. Bill Wegher
The Church of St. Mary Pinckney
congratulates and welcomes:
Zackary Patrick Denny
Michael Michael Jurinic
Lorelei Faustina Mitchell
as now fully initiated members of the Catholic Church
upon their reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation
fittingly on this feast of Pentecost.
May God bless your commitment to Christ and
increased desire to live and share the Gospel
each day as you experience a new closeness with
the whole church community.
