Reflection

     
In this Sundayís Gospel there comes from the wilderness a disruptive voice calling Godís people back to faithful relationship. While John the Baptist criticizes the hypocritical and the entitled, he is also making, on Godís behalf, an invitation to all to make a move or a return to the God who is always calling to us, often through the prophetic voices, the human voices around us.

This weekend, your pastor, Fr. Jack Lombardi, will be returning to western Maryland to serve as pastor there. I will remain as administrator for the foreseeable future, and we will continue to be blessed with a cohort of priest-celebrants for the Sunday and weekday Masses. I understand news of Fr. Jackís change in assignment will be met in different ways by different parishioners. I ask that all of us keep him and the success of his ministries in our prayers, and that we all try to continue to come together in responding to Godís call to repentance and preparation, hallmarks of the Advent season.

On a personal note, I thank all of you who have been so welcoming and supportive to me. It has been a great joy to get to know these parishes and the extraordinary persons who enliven them. Part of preparing for Jesusí return is building communities that support disciples and that witness, prophetically and to a wider world, to Christís invitation to relationship and restoration. As a worshipping community, we should all endeavor to respond to and to extend that invitation.

Dear Friends in Christ,
       
It is with great sadness that we announce that this afternoon (September 14, 2022) our organist emeritus Michael T. Britt passed from this world to the next.  Michael died peacefully surrounded by his family and close friends.  Fr. Mike gave Michael the announting and last rites.  Please keep Michael, his family and friends, as well as the all the parishioners at the the parishes he served, in your prayers.  Most recently Michael was the music minister at Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church as well as Beth El Synagogue and Shrine of The Little Flower.
  
Once arrangements are made, we will share them with you. (Check our Facebook Page also -

Michael served as organist and Director of Music at SLF for 26 years.
   
May he Rest in Peace!
