From Our Pastor

The next two weeks I will be away from the parish on vacation and will be spending some time in Florida with my parents and my sister. After the extreme cold temperatures we have recently undergone, the sun of the south will surely feel good. I want to especially thank three priests who will be celebrating the Eucharist and sharing the Word with you: Fr. Phil Shangraw who twice a month regularly celebrates the 5:30 PM Sunday evening Mass here, our neighbor and fellow parishioner Fr. Larry King, and Fr. Bill Zink who is a native son of Assumption Parish and grew up right here in Belmont. Please be sure to welcome them!

As always, if Assumption School is closed because of snow, then the Monday morning Mass at the Consolata Center House Chapel is also cancelled. And for the next two weeks if the school is closed due to inclement weather, the Wednesday, Thursday or Friday Mass will be cancelled on that day as well. Check the ticker on the local TV stations or call the Rectory office for closing information.

Over the last 5 1/2 months, you’ve been hearing in the announcements information about and in the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass each weekend asking for prayers for our parish’s upcoming event, Reboot! Live. Reboot! Live features world-renown speaker, author and t.v. host Chris Stefanick of Real Life Catholic. This evening will be fun (I promise you will laugh), inspiring and will offer the practical experience for all of applying the beauty and genius of the Gospel to every aspect of life, from prayer and spirituality, to work, dating, marriage, parenting, health and more.

There is a cost for the tickets, $22 each. What you may not know is that the money charged for each ticket will go to fund an initiative of Real Life Catholic called “Turn the Tide”. There’s a very sad statistic showing that 80% of young people stop practicing the Catholic Faith before their 23rd birthday, most while in college. RLC calls this “living at the fringes of faith”, times when these individuals are most likely to disengage and fall away completely. Often, and ironically, these are also moments of great opportunity for people to experience deeper conversion. And Turn the Tide is the first of it’s kind series of coordinated strategies designed to meet people at the fringes, engage them with the truth, beauty and power of the Gospel and keep them Catholic for life.

There are only 75 Reboot tickets left and then all the seats in the church will be filled. This will be a sell-out event (you won’t be able to buy tickets at the door). Don’t miss this opportunity to grow in your faith and to help keep our youth engaged in the Catholic Faith!

If you know a family member or friend who is “living at the fringes”, YOU can make a difference now! Please buy an extra ticket and bring them to this event. It will help them rediscover God and rediscover the life they were made for.

~ Fr. Tony
