From the Pastor

Beacons of Light

Family of Parishes: Last weekend, we took another major step in the Beacons of Light process as the priest assignments for the new Families of Parishes throughout the Archdiocese were officially announced. As I mentioned at all the Masses, Fr. Matthew Robben has been named the pastor of our new family. He was ordained in 2012 and is presently serving as the pastor of Our Lady of the Valley Parish in Reading. This parish was acutely established through the combination of Sts. Peter and Paul and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parishes. I have heard many good things about the way that he helped his parishioners navigate the formation of their new faith community. Fr. James Romanello will serve as our full-time Parochial Vicar. He is currently the pastor of Our Lady of Good Hope Parish in Miamisburg and St. Henry Parish in south Dayton. He, too, brings the experience of pastoring two parishes and creating a good sense of unity and sharing between them. I know the dedication to priestly ministry that both Fr. Robben and Fr. Romanello have, along with their pastoral skills and experience will be a blessing to our entire family of parishes. In addition, I am happy to share with you that I and Fr. Tony Dattilo, the present pastor at St. Catharine of Siena in Westwood, have been appointed part-time Senior Vicars for our family of parishes. Needless to say, I am delighted that I can continue to be part of the Faith Community and I know Fr. Tony feels the same way. The priest assignments will take effect July 1, 2022 upon the implementation of the Families of Parishes. You can view the priest assignments and the list of Families of Parishes for the entire Archdiocese on the Beacons of Light website, catholicaoc.org/beacons-of-light/parish-families.

God’s Blessings,
Fr. Terry

Beacons of Light Update

An Update on the Beacons of Light 
and our New Parish Family

 

As we continue our preparation for the full implementation of our Parish Family – St. Aloysius Gonzaga, St. Antoninus, St. Catherine of Siena, Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Martin of Tours – we are about to take another step in that process.

Several months ago, the Archdiocese instructed all parishes to adjust the number of weekend liturgies by eliminating at least one Mass from their present schedules.  Many parishes over the last several years have already adjusted the number of Masses they celebrate each weekend, but we have been able to provide four Masses for our parishioners for many years.  In fact, our records indicate that no changes have been made to the Mass schedule at St. Martin for over twenty years.  That says a lot about the generosity and commitment of our parish pastoral staff and so many dedicated parishioners who have made this possible by their service as lectors, Eucharistic ministers, servers, choir members, sacristans, ushers and greeters.  However, we now need to make some changes.  After consultation with the Worship Commission and the Parish Pastoral Council, we have designed this new schedule:

        Saturday Evening at 5:00 p.m.
        Sunday Morning at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
    Monday through Friday at 8:00 a.m.

This new schedule will go into effect the weekend of
June 11th and June 12th.

As we know, change is always difficult especially when we have followed a particular pattern for many years.  But, on the other hand, many of us have had the experience of change bringing a new vitality into the realm of the good things we already have been doing.  This Mass schedule adjustment has been a long time in coming as we have observed the changing patterns of Mass attendance. The Beacons of Light process now gives us the impetus to enhance the celebration of the Eucharist and continue to make it always a prayerful expression of adoration and gratitude to our loving God.
