From Father Walling: 

Welcome Father Nam Vu, S.V.D.!  Archbishop Schnurr has formally appointed Father Nam Vu, S.V.D. as
parochial vicar for our C-6 Saint Stephen Family of Parishes. Fr. Nam was born in Vietnam, but was raised in Cincinnati, where he went to schools at Holy Family and Elder. He was ordained a priest in 2010 for the Society of the Divine Word (S.V.D. are the Latin initials), a missionary religious order whose members serve the Church in eighty-four countries worldwide. He is fluent 
in Spanish, having spent two years in Argentina, and most recently serving at Saint Patrick Parish in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where the Sunday Masses are in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. Fr. Vu is looking forward to sharing his priestly life and ministry with us, and I am excited to have him join us. His assignment begins July 1st.


CLOW Schedule

Remember that Children’s Liturgy of the Word is now offered every Sunday, except 5th Sunday:

at the 8:00 am Mass on the first and third Sundays of the month,

and at 9:30 am on the second and fourth Sundays.

No C.L.O.W. on the fifth Sundays


From Father Walling: Sunday Evening Masses Upcoming!

After consulting with staffs and parish councils at Saint Aloysius and Saint Peter in Chains, I have decided to offer a seven o’clock Sunday evening Mass once a month on the first Sunday of the month on a trial basis for six months in order to gauge your response to and participation at Sunday Mass at that hour.

The scheduled Mass will alternate between the two parishes (Saint Al’s and Saint Pete’s), but, due to previous commitments, on an uneven basis:

AT SAINT PETER IN CHAINS on July 7th, August 4th and November 3rd; 

AT SAINT ALOYSIUS on September 1st, October 6th and December 1st. 

Liturgical ministers will be needed:  greeters/ushers, servers, lectors, extraordinary ministers of holy communion.

If you are interested in helping, contact Heather Hart at Saint Pete’s or Ann Shackleford at Saint Al’s.

Mass Moments ”For the Kingdom"

Catholics end the Lord’s Prayer with the words “but deliver us from evil.” Many other Christians add another line: “For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever.” At the Catholic Mass, after all recite the Lord’s Prayer, the priest offers another prayer—the embolism— based on the petition for deliverance from evil. Then all say a doxology: “For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever.”

The Lord’s Prayer appears in the Bible twice, at Luke 11:1–4 and Matthew 6:9–13. Both evangelists probably drew the prayer from a now lost source of the sayings of Jesus. Luke’s is shorter and maybe more original. But Matthew’s is the one that Christians know from memory. The most ancient manuscripts of these Gospels do not include the final doxology. 

At the end of the first century, Matthew’s version of the Lord’s Prayer appeared in a document called the Didache, or the “Teaching of the Twelve Apostles.” It concluded with the words “for the power and the glory are yours forever.” Later editions of the Bible added that doxology to the prayer in Matthew’s Gospel. As history unfolded, some Bibles added the doxology to Matthew’s Lord’s Prayer. Others did not. And families of Christians learned the prayer in different ways. 

During the Second Vatican Council, when the ecumenical movement was strong, Roman Catholics added the doxology to the Communion Rite of the Mass, but separated it from the Lord’s Prayer by means of the embolism. Including the doxology affirms the tradition of other Christians, detaching it from the text honors the original version of the Lord’s Prayer, and praying it gives praise to God.

SCAM Alert

ATTENTION PLEASE: Please disregard any emails or texts from Fr. Walling that are not coming from rwalling@qphamilton.org. There are messages circulating about needing special prayers, money, etc. These are scams! Fr. Walling will NEVER email or text you asking you for money or gift cards.  The latest scam has somehow managed to pop into existing email conversation threads. The parish office does not need to be notified if you have received them. However, if you have fallen victim to these scams please file a report at Report a Scam | Ohio.gov | Official Website of the State of Ohio and with your local police department.  Unfortunately ministers, school principals, etc. are common targets for these scams because these are organizations that people like to make donations to.


HOME COOKING FOR OUR PRIESTS

Our Family of Parish Priests enjoy a home-cooked meal together each week at Queen of Peace. Meals are delivered to the parish office or outside the residence every Tuesday and Wednesday. Typically, meals should feed 4-5 adults. They enjoy all meats, starches, salads, breads and desserts. If you would be interested in being put on the rotation or have further questions, please call the Queen of Peace Parish Office 513-863-4344


OUTREACH MINISTRY COMMITTEE UPDATE

Lenten Project update!

Due to the tremendous generosity of our parishioners and support from the Men’s Society, K of C, and Ladies’ Society, a total of $19,398.58 was donated during lent to support the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate in Gulu Uganda and         H.O.P.E.- full Pastures. Along with some supplemental funds from the Mission Outreach budget, this has enabled us to fund the acquisition of all the requested clinic equipment, medicine, MAMA kits and mosquito nets. We also have been able to provide $10,000 to help initiate the fund to construct the $24,000 outdoor kitchen the clinic so desperately needs. Again, this year we are underwriting the $6000 cost for 10 abused and/or neglected children and their guardians to participate in the therapeutic programs offered at H.O.P.E.-full Pastures.

The parish should take great pride in their unselfish support for others who are less fortunate.

Committee members are:  Jim Bischoff, Sr.(513-896-6397), Ann Adams (513-646-1052), or Imelda Castaneda-Emenaker (513-403-9621).

Spiritual Communion 

For those who are unable to receive Holy Communion, you can make this prayer of Spiritual Communion a source of grace in the midst of difficulty:

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
