Week Beginning June 18, 2017
Fatherís Day to all fathers at
Mass today. May St. Joseph, the foster father of the Christ Jesus and Patron of
Fathers, guard and guide each of you this year.
Reverend Thomas Kennedy, has been appointed Administrator pro tempore of St. Timothy's, Fort Worth, effective July 1, 2017.
Fr. Kennedy will continue to serve as Parochial Vicar of St. Mary the Virgin.
During the summer months, St. Mary the Virgin will be
collecting paperback books to help stock the shelves at the USO in DFW airport.
The USO allows the servicemen and women deploying to pick up & take books
for their trip free of charge. Their shelves are empty right now and they could
use some help. If you don't have any to donate from your house, all the thrift
stores have shelves of books for just a little bit of money. And Half Price
Books has a pretty large clearance section. It doesn't cost a lot and it's a
small way to say thank you to those who serve. Please donate paperbacks only
(they are light and fit in backpacks more easily). Any genre, fiction or
nonfiction, is fine. Even young adult books are welcome, since some of the
troops are only 18! You can drop your donations in the box in the Narthex or
bring them to the parish office during regular office hours.
