For the Weekend of July 11, 2021
Dear People of God,
Often, we can fall into the trap of getting consumed by the fear and anxiety of daily concerns. We can
worry that we will not have enough for tomorrow or even today. This worry can concern us regarding all
parts of our lives - relationships, emotions, material needs, spiritual strength, etc.
What we need to know, with complete certainty, is that God is attentive to every detail of our lives. He
knows all and loves us in such a complete way that he will not abandon us ever. He will never allow us to
be without those things we need to live a full and fruitful life.
At times this may seem hard to believe. At times we can feel overwhelmed and believe that we must
take care of everything ourselves. Not to worry! While we are called to do our part in caring for ourselves
and those in our lives...we also must allow God to use us and work through us. We should never forget
that God is ultimately the one taking care of us and is the one most attentive to our every need.
The temperature here in Arizona has been between 105 and 110 - pretty balmy for this time of year.
Hope all are well and staying dry during these storm days in the Tampa Bay area.
I’m thinking and praying for you all every day. Don’t forget to do the same for me.
What a great celebration of July 4 th . Many, many thanks to all who had a hand in putting everything
together for us.
I received a check up call from the Diocese on Wednesday. I thought that was pretty special. They just
wanted to know if we were okay and if we needed anything from them. Who says our Church doesn’t
This weekend we will have special speakers at the end of all the masses. Please be attentive and
generous in your response to the representatives from Corona Self Help Center Inc. - Addiction
Please take note of upcoming parish events listed elsewhere in this weekly bulletin. Do your best to
participate and support them in any way you can.
Remember in your thoughts and prayers, Fr. Jeremiah Reen, SDB, one of our beloved residents at St.
Philip Residence, who has been moved to Hospice Care in Largo.
As usual please remember to pray for all of the Salesians in our presence here at MHC . . . especially those at St. Philip Residence. Be assured we will be doing the same for you.
Fr. Steve Dumais, SDB.
