   Prayer for Priests
Most gracious and loving Father,
    Christ We thank you for our faithful priests whose spiritual fatherhood and example of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.  May they be guided by the examples of Saints Peter and Paul and all the apostles. Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you, for their families, and for all your people throughout the world.  May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works.  Assist all priests, that through your Grace they may steadily grow in holiness and in knowledge and understanding of your Truth.  May they generously share their knowledge with those who rely on them.  We ask this through our Lord.  Amen

 From the Pastor:
     Here is the likely calendar for the next few weeks with regards to the Unification of St. paul Parish, Candia with St. Peter Parish, Auburn.
    Tuesday, May 25 – As of that date the entire package for Due Diligence was ready: summary and inspection of both parish properties, review of all parish accounts and organizations, review of all stipulations and contracts, written summary of the financial condition of both parishes, written summary of the condition of the parish buildings and property, complete inventory of the belonging of both parishes.  These reports were completed with the help of the parish secretaries, bookkeepers, Ms. Lorette Nault and your pastor, outside contractors, diocesan officials, and others.  The Finance Report of each parish was reviewed and signed by the pastor and the Chair of each Finance Council
    Wednesday, June 2 – The Diocesan Finance Council met and the Unification of the two parishes was on the agenda, the members of the Council having examined the full Due Diligence Report.  Church Law requires that Bishop McCormack consult with the Diocesan Finance Council before making his final decision
    Monday, June 7 – the final step before the Bishop makes his decision in this matter is to consult the Diocesan Presbyteral council, among whom sit the College of Consultors.  After the Bishop hears the comments of this group he will make his decision.
    June ??? The Bishop makes his decision, and, if in the affirmative, he will then issue a Decree of Unification which will be read at all Masses in both parishes and posted.  The period of recourse then opens when parishioners may request that the Bishp reconsider his decision.  This request to the Bishop must be made in writing within 10 days of the Decree.  The Bishop will then have 10 days in which to respond.  If the Bishop does not reconsider his request, any parishioner may make an appeal to Rome, in which case the parishioner would have to retain the services of a Canon Lawyer.  This appeal must by made within 7 days of the Bishop’s response to the first appeal.
    June 27 – Probable date of the Unification of St. Paul Parish, Candia into St. Peter Parish, Auburn.  The last regularly scheduled Mass at St. Paul will be celebrated on Sunday morning, June 27, 2010 at 9:30 am
    Weekend of July 3 and 4, 2010 –
New Mass schedule at St. Peter, Auburn. 
Saturday – 4 pm.  Sunday – 8 and 10:30 am
    If you have any questions please speak to Lorette Nault or to me.  Please keep our two parishes in your prayers.

Question of the Week
Feast of the Body & Blood of Christ
(The Bread and cup of Life)
Genesis 14: 18-20 (Melchizedek)
Reading II:
Corinthians 11: 23-26 (Do This in Remembrance of Me)
Luke 9: 11- 17 (The Loaves and Fishes)

Question for Adults:  Are there particular moments when the Eucharist truly becomes the life giving sustenance of your life? Of all the religious denominations, Christian or otherwise, we are the only ones who truly believe in the living presence of Christ among us.  This is our faith, this is our practice.  Christ is the center of our life, i.e., if we truly believe in him.  Faith on any level is a pure gift from God.  If we find ourselves weak in faith we should not feel ashamed to ask for a stronger dose of Faith.  Only faith will get us through life’s difficult storms.  Believing that Christ is actually present in our lives can make all the difference in the world.
