FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: This week I would like to share with you some news. Our diocesan bishop, Bp. Malesic, has named me the pastor of St. Emeric parish and also the pastor of St. Elizabeth of Hungary parish. Since these are two different offices, I will have to be installed in each parish separately. The installation at St. Emeric will take place on February 6th at our regular Sunday Mass. The Mass and the installation will be presided by Bp. Martin Amos. The installation at St. Elizabeth will take place on February 20th when Bp. Malesic will be there to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the consecration of the current church building.

I am grateful to Bp. Malesic for his trust in me. Even though I am the one receiving a new title for my ministry here at the parish, this news is more about us as a parish and less about me. Naming of a pastor is a sign of stability and confidence of the diocese in us as a community of the Christian faithful.

OUR TERRITORY: One of the documents that I was given was the map and the description of our territory. We are a personal parish, but also a territorial one. Bp. Hoban has given us territory in 1964. I know that I have mentioned this before, but I have not offered the details. The official description is as follows: “North — The new Franklin Avenue (south side only) from West 25th Street to the airline northward extension of West 22nd Street. West ­­– West 25th Street (east side only) from the new Franklin Avenue to Lorain Avenue.  South — Lorain Avenue (north side only) from West 25th Street to its imaginary intersection with Columbus Road.  East — West 22nd Street (both sides included) from its north airline extension to its southernmost extremity, and thence by airline to the imaginary point of intersection of Lorain Avenue and Columbus Road” (see the picture depicting the territory).

A PRAYER BEFORE THE READING OF ANY PART OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES: Come, O Holy Spirit, fill the hearts and minds of your faithful servants and inflame them with the fire of your Divine love. LET US PRAY. O God who by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of your faithful servants grant us in the same Spirit to discern what is right and enjoy his comfort for ever. Through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns one God with you and the same Spirit world without end. Amen.

PAST COLLECTIONS: January 16: $2,438; Candles: $77. Special donation: $50. May God reward your generosity. Thank you also for sending in your offertory donation when not in attendance at Mass either by mail or on our website using a credit card or the PayPal option: https://stemeric.com/donations/
