                                     June Newsletter 

Dear friends,
  
We have just celebrated the feast of Ascension Thursday.  Today we begin the traditional 10 days of devotion to the Holy Spirit.  Here are some resources  from St. Josemaria to aid our devotion. 

On May 18 we commemorated the centennial of the birth of Pope St.John Paul II. Here is a video with highlights of his extraordinary life.  Aleteia website brings 12 of John Paul II's best quotes on Love, Marriage and Family.  The Holy Father recently sent this message to youth on the occasion.

We commemorate the 50th anniversary of St. Josemaria's pilgrimage in May, 1970 to our Lady of Guadalupe with this short video: https://opusdei.org/en-us/video/saint-josemari-a-prayer-before-our-lady-of-guadalu/  

 The month of June brings the dawn of a new day, we pray.  It is also the month of St. Josemaria's feast day - June 26.  We are hoping to be able to celebrate the solemn Mass for his feast day at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More on Friday, June 26 - to be confirmed.  

N.B. We are sorry to announce that the summer :Leadership Camp for middle school boys and the High School Seminars in Pittsburgh have been cancelled.
