The Monelli Memo
Alleluia. Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia.
As we come to the end of the joyous season of Easter and head into Ordinary Time, we must never forget that the risen Lord continues with us and that the power of the Holy Spirit fills us so that we can boldly step out in faith no matter what lies ahead. I know that summer can be a busy time for families. Child care arrangements become even more complicated than they are during the school year, and sports, vacations, and other activities can consume every waking minute. But I hope that all of us – especially those of us with children – will consciously make time for worship and service during the summer months.
Children can easily be led to believe that the entire world revolves around them if everything we do is aimed at making sure they are occupied with healthy and fun activities. But even during the long days of summer, Jesus is calling us all (young and old alike) to follow him into the places of need in the world around us. Schools may be closed, but shelters, food banks, and soup kitchens are still open and in need of Jesus’ love and care for those they serve. And as the Feast of Pentecost reminds us, we have all been empowered to share that love and care with them.
Come for nourishment each Sunday and then take what you have received out into the community. Even little hands can make a big difference. Thanks.
For His Sake,

Thank you so much for inviting me into this wonderful community of faith. The past five years have been a tremendous blessing for me and I give thanks to God for it all. I am especially grateful for the opportunity to have spent time with the children, tweens, and teens as we ambled together on our journeys of faith.
For His sake,
