              MASS TIMES for SUMMER TRAVELING
Summer vacations are not vacations from God! Besides going to Mass
every Sunday while at home, every effort must be made to fulfill Sunday
and holyday obligations even when traveling. Before leaving on vaca-
tions, visit www.masstimes.org or call 410-676-6000 to find addresses,
phone numbers, and Sunday mass times for the churches near your vaca-
tion destination. Always call the church before going there to make sure
their Mass schedule has not recently changed!

 cept that you have a hard time defining? How do you
 describe infinity? Following is a definition of infin-
 ity: n. 1. The largest value that can be represented in a
 particular type of variable (register, memory location,
 data type, whatever). 2. ‘minus infinity’: The smallest
 such value, not necessarily or even usually the simple
 negation of plus infinity. In N-bit twos-complement
 arithmetic, infinity is 2^(N-1) - 1 but minus infinity
 is - (2^(N-1)), not -(2^(N-1) - 1). Note also that this is
 different from “time T equals minus infinity,” which
 is closer to a mathematician’s usage of infinity. How
 can we use this definition to understand God as an
 example of infinity? Join us when Dick Bachman
 explains this concept. His presentation will be based
 on a book 1,2,3 Infinity. July date to be announced.

Jesus invites the people of God to pray for laborers in the work of the
        kingdom. Parishioners and parish organizations are asked to
        pray for vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, men and women
        religious, and for professional lay ministers. In July, Saint
        Luke will especially remember Men Religious (Priests &
