As Father Larry Hehman announced over the past weekend, I have
appointed him as the temporary sacramental minister for Pax Christi so that you
can count on consistent priestly ministry during the time of Father Pat
Stewart’s illness. Per diocesan policy, the diocese pays the compensation
for a sacramental minister after a priest has been on sick leave for more than
Melissa Holland has also been temporarily appointed as Parish
Life Director giving her the necessary authority to operate the parish from day
to day without a pastor being on site. Since you already know both Father
Larry and Melissa, and since they have both already worked with Father Pat, I
trust this should go very smoothly.
Please know that I am praying with you for Father Pat’s healing
and prompt recovery; he misses you all.
Peace and all good,
Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv.
Bishop of Lexington

Please note there will not be an Adoration on September 27th.
We know the summer was not what any of us expected and that our children/youth in public schools have begun this academic year virtually. We also know that some of our families are not only having difficulty providing for their children’s education but there may be some who are suffering financially and with health issues. We pray that you and your family are well. Please let us know if you need help from the parish even if in no other way but to be available with a listening ear!
We all knew
that most of this year would be a homebased program for our FaithWalk program
due to our renovation of the basement.
We had hoped to begin the year with a kick off celebration and pancake
breakfast as we have done in the past and then have at least a few in-person
sessions before we went virtual; however, with COVID-19 restrictions we were
unable to do that.
We are beginning some in-person sessions for the 2nd Grade as they prepare for Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, as well as our 8th Grade as they prepare for Confirmation. In the meantime we are planning some exciting new ways to help families with a homebased FaithWalk program which will include :Pick-up Parties and Videos prepared by parish staff and volunteer catechists and possibly some virtual sessions by grade level.
Becker will continue to serve as Volunteer Coordinator of our Children/Youth
FaithWalk program (this year it will be for K through 8th
Grade). She has already been in contact
with catechists regarding the possibility of virtual meetings this year. As you know, Father Pat remains in the
hospital battling Pancreatitis and requests your prayers. I am available to discuss any concerns you
may have throughout the year.
We have been blessed with Pflaum Publishing offering digital Gospel Weeklies which will be available through a login provided to families who register for our New FaithWalk program. Those of you who have had children in our FaithWalk Program know that the Gospel Weeklies are Lectionary Based (meaning it coincides with the readings for the Sunday). This type of Catechesis (echoing the faith) is especially important during this time as it helps our families deepen their understanding of the Sunday readings and provides a basis for at-home intergenerational faith discussions. We will also be providing virtual Adult FaithWalk sessions such as of Kitchen Chatter, Women’s Spirituality (book club), and an offering of seasonal videos to enhance the adult faith formation. The goal of the FaithWalk program is to provide valuable age appropriate activities and shared prayer and worship for all ages in order to grow in our Catholic faith.
Please review the forms by clicking here. In order to prepare for this program we need everyone to get their registration in by September 17th so we can prepare for the first Gospel Weeklie to be available to your family the week of September 20th. Watch your email for updates/changes in what is available to help your family share the Faith especially watch for seasonal Pick-up Parties to be held at church.
forward to having you and your family join us on this new way of our FaithWalk
