Our annual Priests' Retreat will be the week of June 15-19. Msgr. John and I will both be away for that time. It begins Monday evening and ends Friday noon. It is held at Pokagon State Park's Potawatomi Inn on Lake James. A lovely setting but they feed us too much food with their buffets.
Our retreat director this year is Rev. Eamonn Mulcahy. I found a little bio on him that you might find interesting:

My mistake at last Saturday's Mass: I said I would be away this weekend for a wedding. I was a week off! I had looked at the wrong week in my calendar earlier that day and didn't realize it till later. I'm here this weekend (though at Sacred Heart, not St. Jude). It is the following weekend (that of the 5-6-7th) that I will be in Michigan for a wedding. Thankfully, I am here to celebrate both a baptism after the 4:30 Mass (St. Jude) and then on to Kathy Wolfram's retirement celebration.

Summer day camps, combining fun and learning for students in grades 2 through high school, will again be offered in local Catholic schools. Faculty and staff parents can register now for a range of sessions—at only $80 per three-week session in most cases—through the ACE website. For middle-school kids, choose from camps focusing on math, science, language arts, or social studies. High school students have different summer school options. Select from June or July timeframes. Current Catholic school teachers will partner with teachers from the University's ACE Program.
Congratulations to Kamryn Gorka and Savanna Urbanski, from Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, who received the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades this past Saturday at St. Matthew Cathedral. They were among a very large number of students from the Mishawaka parishes as well as one student from St. Therese Little Flower Parish. It was a beautiful experience to be among so many and see the entire church filled with people standing along the back and sides of the church. As parish communities, we pray with and for the gifts of the Holy Spirit in the lives of these two young women. May the Spirit always fill their hearts as they do our own on this Feast of Pentecost.
