     Thank You so much for your Generosity.

   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

Annual Missionary Appeal
    Each year we welcome a missionary to present a profile of their Order’s work and to build up missionary zeal in the Diocese of Manchester.  This weekend we welcome a priest from The Apostles of Jesus, which was founded by two Italian Comboni Missionaries in Moroto-Uganda on August 22, 1968, for the express purpose of the New Evangelization of Africa and the world.  The Apostles of Jesus commit themselves completely to the service of the spiritual, Pastoral and social welfare of all people with preference to the poor, in the spirit of Christ who came to serve and not to be served. (Mt. 20:28). 
    For the occasion there will be a second collection at the time of the Offertory.  Thank you in advance for the kind generosity.

Parish and Religious Education Registrations  Regardless of where you are planning to register once our church is unified with St. Peters you will be expected to register in your new church.  If you have children of age for Religious Education instruction, please do not forget to register them for this program in the new parish. 
    If your child is of age to begin or to continue one of the programs to receive a sacrament, do not wait for the new parish to contact you.  Be sure to take the initiative in the matter. 

 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
11 Sunday in Ordinary time
(God’s Loving Mercy)
2 Samuel 12: 7-10 (You Shall Not Die)
Reading II:
Galatians 2: 16, 19-21 (Christ Lives in Me)
Luke 7: 36- 8:3 (The repentant Woman)

Question for Adults:  Knowing the boundlessness of God’s mercy, how will I respond? There are times when we have great difficulty believing what the Church teaches about God and about Jesus.  One of those things we have difficulty with is God’s mercy.  When we hear about it in the Gospel we almost want to ridicule his goodness.  Why we do this is not exactly clear but one of the reasons is perhaps because we cannot believe that anyone can be so merciful. 
    This boundless mercy should drive us to our knees in praise and thanksgiving but for many it does not.  It simply goes unnoticed by some or by others is it simply not believed and by others it is taken for granted.  In short God’s love goes unrequited.  How sad is this commentary for our generation.  How do you respond to God’s loving mercy?
