My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, This is the time of the year for a nostalgic look at the past. The people who touched our lives are especially beloved. We commemorate and pray for them. The names on the altar and the photos of our deceased are a witness to our love for them. The greatest tribute we can show is to carry on the work of faith, building on the foundation of faith in Jesus and love of the Church that they laid. Jesus tells us in the Gospel reading to “stay awake, we know neither the day nor the hour!” Let’s look attentively for opportunities to grow in our love for Jesus and to bring others into our faith community. God bless you! Fr. Dave
The Incarnation of Our Lord Parish welcomes Fr. David Kozak, our new Pastor. His first Mass at Incarnation will be at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 15. He is shown in the picture above to the right of Bishop Alfred Schlert. Father Dave, as he likes to be called, says he is looking forward to seeing all of you and meeting all of you in the weeks and months ahead. Fr. Dave will be Pastor at both Incarnation and Holy Ghost Parishes. He comes to us from St. Peter the Apostle in Reading, where he served as associate pastor.
