Celebrations and the Weekly Menu

Happy Friday everyone.  This upcoming week is going to be a busy one.  Celebrations of all sorts are happening in our lives right now.

This morning, Frank is at Little Miss Melody's daycare center for a luncheon celebrating Father's Day.  Tomorrow morning we head north to attend our Lili Bug's party celebrating her graduation from High School.  When we return home on Monday, we will be celebrating the life of my dear friend, Sister Geraldine Arnold csj with a vigil service at the local funeral home.  On Wednesday we will be travelling to the east side of the State to have the final celebration Mass in her honor and lay her to rest at Nazareth, her Mother House.  On Friday, we will be celebrating with our local community at a Memorial Mass for our parish.  The following week commences with a Birthday Celebration for Frank's sister, Roz.

Burial Date June 14, 2017
Visitation will be 1-4 and 6-9 PM Monday June 12, 2017 with a Vigil Service at 7:00 PM in the Gilbert Funeral Home, Algonac. A Welcome Home to Nazareth and Rosary will be held at 3:30 PM with a Vigil Service at 7:30 PM Tuesday June 13, 2017 in the Holy Family Chapel, 3427 Gull Rd. Nazareth, MI. 49074 Funeral Mass 10:30 AM Wednesday June 14, 2017 in Nazareth. Burial will be in the Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Nazareth. A funeral mass will be held at Our Lady on the River Parish St. Catherine
 Church at a later date.

In between all these celebrations we will be, occasionally, eating at home and I will be providing some food to be taken to these events.  So without delay, I will share our Weekly Menu and ask for your prayers for all the fathers, grandfathers and uncles that are there for our children.  For all graduates that their futures may be bright and their roads free from hazards.  For all our loved ones who have gone before us that they may find peace in the Lord's loving embrace and For all those who celebrate their birthdays during this month that they may be joyful and have many more to come.
