Seminarian William Cassese Reflects on His Time at St. Patrick's

07-23-2017Seminarian William Cassese

For the past ten weeks, Seminarian William Cassese has been helping out in our parish as a part of his seminary training. Today, in place of Fr. Walden’s column, William reflects on his time at St. Patrick’s.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with a heavy heart that I must say farewell to St. Patrick’s again. I can’t believe ten weeks have already passed! This year’s pastoral summer seems to have gone much faster than last year’s. However, I have learned a lot over these past ten weeks, and I have come to an even greater appreciation of the community that we have here at St. Patrick’s. So, as I did at the end of my internship last year, please allow me to share some little reflections of my time here over these past ten weeks.

Don’t Forget Our Food Pantry

Unfortunately, economic hardship is a year-round phenomenon. Summer is a tough time for food pantries, including our own.

Giving Made Easier

Churches now routinely offer online giving for church donations. There are many reasons for this. Fewer people are using cash and checks. Mass attendance at your home parish is usually interrupted by vacations, business trips, illness, snow storms, etc. and many people find it easier (and greener) to not have to deal with church envelopes.
