Father Fred Link, O.F.M.

Ah, “the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” are upon us!  The next two weeks will be lazy—at  least for me.  I’m away on vacation until July 9.  I’m grateful to Fr. Ric for taking Masses in my absence.  This will provide a nice opportunity for parishioners to get to know him a bit.  Of course, the parish office is still open and Fr. Jim is around.  Fr. Jim will be taking his vacation later this summer.  I hope everyone has an opportunity for some down time, even if you can’t travel.  Don’t forget; even God “rested” on the seventh day! 

Because summer is a less hectic time in the parish, it would be easier for me to visit persons who are unable to get out of the house or come to church.  I know that Sr. Pat is faithful in visiting all those on her list.  There are some she cannot get to visit.  I would be very happy to come and pray with anyone who wishes.  I can also celebrate the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick with any who wish.  Please don’t hesitate to call the parish office and ask to talk with me.  As always,  I am happy to visit individuals in the hospital, if I am informed.  I feel confident that Fr. Jim is also happy to visit anyone who wishes and to administer the Sacrament.  

Peace.
