June is a time for graduations- a time to remember, give thanks, celebrate and look to a future full of hopes and dreams. Many young people and families in our parish are doing just that these days. In the midst of all these wonderful celebrations, I encourage the graduates, whether they be from elementary school, middle school, high school, college and even graduate school, to pause for a moment and include God in their remembering, thanking, celebrating and dreaming. In remembering, to thank all those who have helped you achieve your goals- parents, siblings, friends, teachers, coaches and mentors. In thanking, to actually say those words to the ones whom you know deserve to hear them. In celebrating, to enjoy your achievements and realize that it is the Lord who gave you the gifts and talents. In dreaming, let the Lord, not society or your peers, be your guide in how you will live your life in high school, college or in the world. Remember always, God made you and blessed you with gifts and talents and made you for some definite purpose. Give thanks for His love and His gifts. Celebrate the fact that He is with you always, sometimes in spite of yourself. Let Him be the hope that guides your future. No matter what challenges come along or what life brings, He will always be there to help if you but ask Him. Cardinal Newman in a poem entitled "My Purpose in Life" wrote: "God created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission- I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next...Therefore, I will trust in Him." I congratulate all of you who are graduating at this time. May God give you many blessings. May you put your trust in Him. God Bless You All!

FAREWELL TO FATHER HAMILL, FATHER GARCIA AND SISTER JOHN

On Sunday, June 15, Fathers Hamill and Father Garcia will concelebrate the 10:30 a.m. Mass. Sister John Magdalen will be present for this Mass also. This will provide us the opportunity to bid farewell to our Priests and Sister and to thank them for their wonderful service to our parish. We will have a reception after Mass in the cafeteria where parishioners will have the opportunity to express their personal gratitude to Father Hamill, Father Garcia and Sister John. If you normally attend another Mass, feel free to just come for the reception. This will be our priests last day with us.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Over the past seven years you have truly become like family to me in many ways and so I would like to extend an invitation to you to attend my installation as pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Oxford, PA on Saturday, June 28, at the 5:00 pm Vigil Mass. I am honored that our former pastor, Bishop McFadden, will be presiding at the installation at Sacred Heart Church, and I am hoping that many of you will be able to come to celebrate this great day with me. A parish picnic will follow the installation. The directions to Sacred Heart are easy. Simply head out west on the Route 30 bypass and then south on Route 10. As you approach the town of Oxford, the church will be on your right. If you plan on attending, please contact our parish secretary, Roe DeRitis by phone (610-269-8294) or by email ([email protected] and let her know how [email protected]) many from your family will be attending (children are invited). If you could do so before Friday, June 20, this will help give an accurate count to the caterer. Sincerely, Father Hamill

Treasured Friends ­ Stewards of One Another

"Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Luke 12:34. There is nothing more treasured than a good friend. The measure of friendship, if there can be such a thing, is the reciprocity that is felt between friends. The desire to care for the friend, love the friend, suffer for the friend, feel joy with the friend; all are felt reciprocally by both people, not in competition to outdo one another but in complete Christian companionship. Christ told us, "No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends" (Jn 15:13) and showed us this as he hung on the cross because of His love for us. Let us never forget to cherish the friends in our lives for we hold their hearts in our hands
