Farewell Steve & Teresa
The word is quickly spreading and it is with sadness to report here that our musician Steve Kasperick-Postellon submitted his letter of resignation. His announcement is in this weekend's bulletin in both his column and mine. Please keep Steve & Teresa in your prayers as they begin their new music & song ministry with St. Joseph in Dexter.
I invite you to offer to them your appreciation and best wishes after all the weekend Masses on March 4 & 5 which will be the last weekend he celebrates with us.

Dorothy Day is an American woman who lived in the early 20th century. As a young adult journalist she became impressed with the lifestyle of caring for others that she observed in Catholic nuns. She became a Catholic and began her own service to the poor and oppressed. She found her vocation in linking charity with justice and a commitment to the ideal of Gospel non-violence. She was a founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and has been popularly acclaimed a saint for our times. The process for her canonization is underway.
Dorothy believed that all people are called to become saints and she was devoted to following the second great commandment to love one another as God has loved us. Come share in the journey of her life of faith and charity.
