Congratulations to our First Communion Class
I hope and pray you are all well. I am working hard on an opening date for our program. I am on a committee put together by the Diocese that is creating the guidelines for a safe reopen for our program. Most of what we are deciding looks very similar to what our school district is doing. We are currently looking at a mid-September start date. Registration will take place electronically or by mail. A form will be emailed or mailed to families and returned to my email or mailed to the church. One will be made available on the church's website and posted on the PSR Facebook page. Please send me your email address to ensure that I have a correct and current one (firstname.lastname@example.org) Please be patient with us as we try to put the best plan in place for the safety and well being of all.

Today's notes focuses on Matthew's Gospel. Jesus' multiplication of the loaves appears in every Gospel. The event anticipates the Eucharist, a point that Matthew reinforces by using the series of verbs (taking, blessed, broke, gave) here and at The Last Supper. Jesus feeds the crowd through the hands of the apostles. The disciples' intermediary role points forward to their Priesthood. They distribute the bread provided by Jesus in anticipation of the Eucharistic Liturgy, where the Priest of the New Covenant give the Bread of Life as Holy Communion to the Church. No matter of the changes were going thru now, we still receive what other religions don't The Body of Christ!
Good day and God Bless, Deacon Arch.
