Re-Opening of Our Lady of Good Counsel &
Farewell Luncheon for Fr. Patrick Carrion
Flooring Project at Good Counsel complete; 11am mass resumes!
Work is 99.9% complete at Our Lady of Good Counsel and the 11am mass is once again being celebrated there! As there are a few minor items still to occur, the Monday 8am mass will continue to be at Holy Cross until the contractors are completely finished. Thank you for your patience during these 3 months waiting for the Church to reopen. We are grateful to those who were able to contribute to this extensive project. It is great testimony to our ancestors of 130 years ago that we continue what they started. The overall cost of the project is $200,000. CCSB has funds in savings and from recent gifts to start the flooring project but could use assistance to complete it. Please give prayerful consideration to contributing; there are many sponsorship levels still available.
PRAYERS FOR VIOLENCE ON CITY STREETS
This weekend the parish honored the memories of Alexander J. Wroblewski, III (died November 14, 2017) and Timothy Ian Moriconi (died September 28, 2018). Their parents, Andrew Moriconi and Alex and Mary Catherine Wroblewski, Jr., respectively, were present as the book was dedicated; it contains the names of those lost to violence in Baltimore, starting on January 1, 2019. Please continue to pray for those affected by violence in the city.
