Pope St. Pius X (feast day: August 21st) was pope from 1903 to 1914. He is known for vigorously opposing modernist interpretations of Catholic doctrine, promoting traditional devotional practices and orthodox theology. His most important reform was to order the codification of the first Code of Canon Law (1917), which collected the laws of the Church into one volume for the first time. He was also considered a pastoral pope, in the sense of encouraging personal holiness, piety and a daily lifestyle reflecting deep Christian values.

 

 Fr. Ringley's Note

 

    Thanks to Carlos Ortiz and Miguel Palmias for repairing the damaged fence at St. Patrick’s and for replacing a number of light bulbs in the downstairs church. Our parishioners will recall that a truck ran through the fence some weeks ago. It is very difficult to get various contractors to do small, unscheduled jobs during the summer months because they are booked with larger, betterpaying work. Thanks, Miguel and Carlos!

    Anyone interested in receiving any sacraments should call the office now for scheduling and information. Classes begin at the end of August and beginning of September.

    Our annual parish picnic is scheduled for Sunday, September 17th. Anyone who would like to volunteer to help or donate something is encouraged to call the office and speak with Leo.

    Last Friday we took a group of altar servers to a Bridgeport Bluefish game as a “thank you” gift for their service. The Bluefish won the game (Go, Bluefish!), the servers and adults had a great time in spite of nearly being beaned by an errant foul ball, and we stayed after the game to watch the human cannonball fly through the air and land safely in a giant net. Any young person who would like to serve at the altar is invited to speak with one of the priests or deacons, or just show up before Mass. We offer onthejob training.

    Columbia Restoration is back on the job at St. Patrick’s repairing damaged masonry. This summer and fall we hope to complete the project of stopping all the various small leaks that have sprung up over the years as a result of the weathering of the manmade stone. All things considered, the building is currently in pretty good shape. Over the years I have learned that the work is never really complete, but requires ongoing attention.

    The Maryknoll Missioners who were here a few weeks ago speaking at all the Masses wrote to thank our parishioners for your generous support of their missionary efforts.

    Our maintenance team continues to make improvements to the St. Augustine rectory. The heating and air conditioning is now fully operational. Thanks for your continued support.

 Fr. Ringley
