Operation Rice Bowl

This year Pax Christi will be participating in Operation Rice Bowl as part of our Lenten Preparation.  An envelope containing a Rice Bowl, instruction/idea pamphlet and a letter from Fr. Pat will be arriving to your home soon (if it hasn’t already). 

Here is an excerpt of the letter from Fr. Pat…

“Operation Rice Bowl is presented every year by Catholic Relief Services and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).  It is a simple and meaningful way to be of service to the poor around the world.  The primary concept is to add one or more simple, inexpensive meals to your week and to place the money saved into the little cardboard rice bowl.  As you will find, many resources are provided in a simple way.

· There is a calendar for the days of Lent with devotionals and practices.

· There are simple recipes from around the world for the more adventurous.

· There is access to videos that show the work of CRS in various parts of the world.

· Keeping the rice bowl on the table where you gather to eat adds to the devotion.

We have shown over and over again that we are a generous parish that loves to be of service.   I really think that Operation Rice Bowl is a creative and meaningful project that can bless your family.  Please use the Rice Bowl in your home.

There will be no formal gathering of your offerings.  However, this year we ask you to count the money you contributed during Lent and write a check that represents the total of your Rice Bowl offering. “

· Check made out to Pax Christi with “rice bowl” in the memo. 

· Mail your contribution to Pax Christi—4001 Victoria way, Lexington ky 40515—or place in the offertory baskets located in the gathering space in church during our Holy Week Services. 

As always, thank you for your attention and your generosity,

Fr. Pat

Father Pat Returns for Masses

Dear Friends and Fellow Parishioners,

Beginning on Monday, January 4, at the noon Mass, I will begin celebrating Mass again at Pax Christi. I have been feeling stronger and healthier in the last few weeks. And I believe that returning to a limited, part time schedule of work will only speed up my recovery.

Fr. Hehman and I will begin to return to the traditional schedule.   I will have Mass on Mondays and Thursdays.   Father Larry will have the Tuesday and Friday Masses.  After the first couple of weeks Father Larry and I will rotate with Father Larry having one Mass each weekend.

I am not yet fully recovered. I still grow tired as the day goes on. Therefore, it is still important that I protect myself from the possibility of any infection.  I must be strict about keeping the proper distance from other people. I will not be able to have extended in person contact with people. I may be tired after Mass and so may not be around to greet people as they leave. But I so look forward to being with you all.

I will also begin spending time in the office most days, for one or two hours at first, slowing re-engaging with the activities and programs of our parish life.

I think it is best that I not be involved in the busier demands of the Christmas holiday schedules. I will miss celebrating Christmas Mass with you. So let me now wish you a most blessed Christmas. May you feel Christ’s presence truly alive in your hearts and homes.  The New Year promises great renew of life and of hope. I look forward to sharing that new life with you.

Peace & Joy,

Fr. Pat
