 h/t to Stainedglass Buffalo


Matt sent in an interesting blog post written by a priest.  I do sympathize with his premis though not his solution.  Any thoughts?  Have a look here.

Jeff sent this website in.  It is the new website for the Schantz Organ Company that is currently working on our new organ.  A picture of our visit appears on the home page. 

From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter:  "Bishop Lennon invites all to noon Mass at Cathedral on the 4th of July to close 'Fortnight for Freedom" - Parishes across the country to ring bells at noon on Independence Day

"June 28, 2012 the United States Supreme Court issued a decision upholding as a tax provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that requires individuals to purchase a health plan - the so-called 'individual mandate.'"  For more on these stories go here and here.

Saint Sebastian will have a special Holy Hour tonight (Tuesday) from 7 to 8PM and a Mass on July 4th at 9Am.

There will be a JAZZ AND WINE FESTIVAL at St. Sebastian to benefit the organ project.  Three bands, wine tastings, food samples and more.  Go here for more information or to purchase tickets.

Russ sent this 5 minute video in.  You can always count on Russ for something interesting.  Thanks.

I understand this priest's frustration. As a PSR teacher for 7 years for Confirmation/grade 7&8, I am all too familiar with lukewarm parents and their children, and the "Confirmation is graduation" attitude.

I'm not sure what I think about his new approach. Sure, you will have the kids in it who want to be there, and that would be a pleasure to teach...but what about the rest of them? Doesn't the parish have a duty to at least TRY to catechize ALL the children in the parish and bring them to the sacraments?
