This Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of The Most Holy Trinity, the mystery of the three Persons in God: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Today’s Gospel reminds us that this mystery is central to our faith. For this reason, every Sunday is sanctified and consecrated to the Triune God. As we share in the mystery of the blessed Trinity, may we also seek to welcome others to share in God’s love.
Speaking of sharing, Deacon Mike and his wife Lisa have some news to share with all of you.
It is with mixed emotions that Lisa and I bid farewell to Naperville and to Holy Spirit Catholic Community. We have called Naperville our home for 25 years and Holy Spirit for 14 years. We have decided to return back to the Tampa, Florida area where we had lived for a few years before returning to Naperville and starting our relationship with Holy Spirit. We will be leaving the area at the end of May.
We have been so very blessed to have encountered so many wonderful people during our time here. We are ever grateful for all of the love, compassion, and friendship that have been given to us over the years and we hope that you have received the same from us in return. We are humbled by the support we have always received from the parish community and can never thank each person enough for being a part of our journey.
Thank you to Fr. Dennis and the entire staff for welcoming Lisa and me to the Diaconate family and for all of the words of encouragement and prayer that we have received over the years. As many of you know, the power of prayer is infinite if we put all of our trust in the Lord. It has kept us grounded and will continue to keep us His humble servants.
As we start our new journey, please know that the entire Holy Spirit parish community will be in our daily prayers. We ask that you pray for us as well so that we can continue our ministry work at our new parish, St. Stephen's, helping to bring more people closer to Christ.
May God's Peace and Blessings be with you today and always.
Deacon Mike and Lisa
I wish to recognize Mike and Lisa for sharing their gifts, talent and time with our parish since 2004. Deacon Mike was ordained to the Order of Deacon in August 2016 and has since then been a dedicated and conscientious deacon in service to the Lord, the people of our parish and the diocese. I ask that you join me in wishing them well and that you include them in your prayers.
On the journey,
Fr. Dennis G. Lewandowski
