Subject: Annual Facilities Scheduling

It is time again to begin to plan for meeting places for Parish committees, programs, and major events from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. Packets of information pertaining to scheduling and set up of events have recently been mailed to those who have scheduled events in the past. Additional packets are available in the Parish Center. This information is self-explanatory.

Please remember that every activity (including room preparation and clean up) requiring use of any Parish property must be scheduled. All space required for the activity (gym, kitchen, hallway, etc.) must be reserved prior to use. This year we again are requesting that you submit your anticipated set up/take down requests at the same time you submit your request to use the facility.

Please review the following timeline:

  • Scheduling for 2018-2019 begins May 27 and ends June 22, 2018.
  • Requests received after June 24 will be held pending processing of all requests already received.
  • Confirmation/conflict letters will be sent to you by July 25.
  • If there is a conflict, changes to original requests are due back to Mrs. Chris Otero by July 30, 2018.
  • If you submitted a change to your original request, final schedule confirmation response letters will be sent out by August 13.
  • On August 13 we begin processing late requests.
  • Confirmation/conflict letters to late requests (those received after June 22) will be sent out by August 20.
  • Please be aware that Visitations will be scheduled before Funeral Masses in the Gathering Place and will be given first priority over any other activity. Please be aware that your activity will be relocated to another location on campus if this space is needed for a Visitation.
  • Effective July 1, 2018, all evening meetings must end by 9:00 p.m. sharp.

Remember: Turn in the fully completed form(s) to the Business Office in the Parish Center by Friday, June 22, 2018.

Incomplete forms will have to be returned.

Finally, thank you for your efforts on behalf of this parish and your cooperation with adhering to our facilities usage procedures and policies.

The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

In our modern times, symbol can seem to have lost its value. The most recognizable "signs" are ones we see on the road or the branding in advertisements. The logos for major companies don't do much more than perk our interest or disdain. They surely don't deliver on their promises for our lives to be happier, healthier, and easier.

On this feast of Corpus Christi, we hear the account of the Last Supper. This was Passover, an ancient sign of the covenant of Moses. The Hebrew people celebrated God's providential care for His people. To the listening disciples, Jesus makes a very bold claim. "This is my blood of the covenant." At the time of the first Passover -- the redemption of the Hebrew people from slavery to the Egyptians -- the blood of the sacrificial lamb was spread on the lintels of the doorpost. Tomorrow, some of the disciples would witness the blood of the new covenant spread across the wood of the cross.

Christ's Body and Blood are more than a sign. They are a sacrament. In the sacrament, the sign makes real what it signifies. More than ritual, a sacrament enacts truth of the covenantal love of God and His promise of fidelity. It's a promise God keeps. The same bread and wine of that first Holy Thursday liturgy becomes -- throughout the centuries and until the end of time -- the very Body and Blood of Christ. On this feast, we celebrate the unfailing covenantal love of our God. As you partake in the Eucharist today, and next Sunday, and the Sunday after that, remember that you receive neither a meaningless sign nor an empty offer. You receive God Himself, as He fulfills His promise to remain with us always.
