2 PAGE TWO YÜÉÅ à{x ctáàéüëá Wxá~ I guess you could call this week s article my thank you article because I have a lot of people to thank for different things. First, I would like to thank all those who were involved with our annual 200 Club Dinner & Fundraiser. There are too many people to name individually (and as always, I don t want to forget anyone!), so I ll name the three groups responsible for planning, set up, overseeing, clean up, and ticket sales. Thank you so much to our parish staff, Parish Council, and Knights of Columbus. Each of these groups put in a lot of hard work to make the dinner and raffle a success and it was truly a success, as we once again sold all 200 tickets, and everyone seemed to really enjoy the dinner. A big thank you also goes out, of course, to all of you who generously supported St. Beatrice by buying 200 Club tickets. Thank you to all, and congratulations to our five winners! A belated thank you also goes out to parishioner Edna Sztuk, who recently completed her term as president of the St. Beatrice Women s Club. I can testify that Edna worked very hard in this position, carefully planning and executing the Women s Club events these last few years. She is one of those parishioners who, if everyone exemplified her dedication to the parish, we could have a plethora of ministries at St. Beatrice, and you would never have to hear me ask for volunteers again. Thank you, Edna, for a job truly well done! And I did not get a chance to do this last weekend, but I also want to thank our Parish Choir. Last Sunday they sang at their last 10am Mass before the summer break; they will return in September. They sing not only at all 10am Sunday Masses throughout much of the year, but they also sing at many holy day and special Masses as well. Music is an important part of the liturgy, so thank you to our choir! My final thanks go to Russo Power Equipment, located just east of St. Beatrice on Irving Park Rd. Every spring Russo s donates and plants all the flowers in our outdoor Prayer Garden, and every fall they come back to remove them. I am always very grateful for their generosity. Our Prayer Garden adds so much to our parish grounds, so thank you to Russo s for helping to make it look beautiful! Two more notes for this weekend: first, I want to remind all parish organizations/ministries that our annual calendar meeting is scheduled for this Tuesday, June 13 th at 7:00pm at the rectory. At least one representative from each group must attend this meeting as we plan the parish calendar for the next 12 months. Second, next weekend is the Solemnity of Corpus Christi the Body and Blood of Christ. As we give God thanks for the truly awesome gift of the Eucharist (and I use that adjective literally the Eucharist should inspire awe in us), we honor the Real Presence of Christ with a Eucharistic procession. After each Mass next weekend (June 17-18) we will conclude with a procession with the Eucharist in the monstrance. The procession does not take too long, so I hope you can plan to stay for a few minutes after Mass. Finally, here are the answers to last week s Catholic trivia questions. If you missed the questions last week, you can always find our bulletins online at our website: St. Beatrice, pray for us. May God bless you. Pall Birettas Both Outside influence Penance Fr. Rob

3 TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION It is often heard that today s observance is an idea feast, and that it is somewhat difficult to grasp its meaning. Other great solemnities, such as Christmas and Easter, have an easily grasped core. Yet, even though the Trinity is at the heart of our faith, firmly declared in the Creed since the Council of Nicea in 325, we are used to having people shrug and say, Well, it s a mystery. Perhaps it is more helpful to think of this as a relationship feast, since it unveils our deepest identity. Dorothy Day was a great social reformer, pacifist, and ardent lover of the Trinity. When people told her that she would certainly be canonized one day (the process is indeed underway), she protested dismissively by remarking that people were raising a fuss just because she was not afraid to talk about God. She loved the Trinity, and treasured the traditional icon for the feast, also known as The Hospitality of Abraham, depicting the three angelic beings seated at a table tilted toward the viewer and laden with bread and wine. For her, the Trinity revealed the heart of the Catholic life, three C s if you will: community, communication, and communion. That was not an idea for her, but what it means to be created in the image of the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Rev. James Field, Copyright J. S. Paluch Co. St. Maria Goretti Day Care Are you looking for day care? St. Maria Goretti has an excellent day care for 3 and 4 year old children. We are open 6:30am 6:00pm, Monday thru Friday, through out the year. We commit ourselves to the development and nurturing of the whole child academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. In a safe and caring environment, the life skills of the child will be developed so that he/she will achieve success in meeting the challenges of the future. Our day care includes the Pre-K program in our school at no additional cost. For further information, please call Dorothy Nasti at or smgcougars.com PAGE THREE Most Holy Trinity As we celebrate the mystery of the Trinity we also realize the mystery of how much God loves and cares for us each day. Believing in this our lives can then overflow in thanksgiving and praise. Your gift in the St. Vincent de Paul Poor Box will help the poor to believe in the mystery of God s loves for them. THE INEXPRESSIBLE MYSTERY The God of the universe is mysterious. Science has not been able to solve the mystery of how the universe came into being or explain exactly what continues to give it creative energy and masterful design. No religion asserts that it has found words to name fully the ineffable mystery of God, for no matter what name we use, God always transcends our limited ability to understand. God is a mystery to be believed, not known. And yet, we Christians believe that our name for God best expresses that inexpressible mystery: God is the Most Holy Trinity of three persons united in a communion of love, pouring forth that creative, saving, sanctifying love into the world. Today s scriptures celebrate the mystery of the Trinity and give us clues for living that mystery in our lives. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co., Inc. Thank you to all those who supported and attended our ongoing concert series featuring Violinist Anthony Kawalkowski.

Rob, Deacon Ron, Pat Sullivan, Zerlina Kirchen, Dorothy Brown, JoAnn Michonski and Val Abatangelo. We hope to see you at our next concert which will be sometime later this year. It is your support that makes these presentations successful and ongoing. Thank You! Richard Gersten, Director of Music
