Philip Rose Window

We thank Dennis & Sue Welsh for sponsoring the
lighting of the rose window in St. Philip Church for the
month of August. Thank you Dennis & Sue.
From the pastoy's desk. . .
Congratulations to Deacon Pat Jozefowicz on the tenth
anniversary of his ordination. The Diocese of Madison
has prepared and ordained only one class for the
ministry of deacon. Deacon Pat has served in parishes
in Bloomington, Fennimore and Montfort. He preaches,
visits shut-ins, is available to celebrate baptisms,
weddings and at wakes, funerals and grave side
services. We are blessed with his ministry in the Church
at our parishes.
Last weekend, the 9:00 mass was without an organist.
Thank you to Andrea Washa and Jane Tarrell for
leading the music. I thought the congregational
participation was greater than usual. Sometimes when
we are challenged, we respond above the norm. You
recognized the lack of a keyboard meant that voices
would have to step up if we were to give praise to God
and song are an important element of our worship and
giving our best to God is essential. Keep up the good
work. Open your hymnals and lift your voice to God in
return for the many blessings we receive each week.
Congratulations and best wishes to Bridget Anderson
and Tim Krupa who were married here this past
weekend. May God bless your lives with a love that
grows stronger and deeper with every passing year.

What's'goin$ on?
From the Pastor's desk:
I would like to offer two web sites for Catholic
background on the topic of immigration and
unaccompanied minors. The US Conference of Catholic
Bishops web site, usccb.org, currently has a cover article
on unaccompanied child refugees. lf you click on this
story it will take you to a page from Migration and
Refugee Services (MRS). This is an office of the Catholic
Bishops. lf the cover page article is taken down, scroll to
the bottom and find Migration and Refugee Services.
On the MRS page you will find a list of "How You Can
Help." The last item will allow you to connect with
justiceforimmigrants.org also an ongoing effort of the
US Bishops. This site now has many specific items on
unaccompanied children. Under resources in the right
hand column is "Catholic Church's
position on
immigration reform." This is an excellent summary on
immigration from our US Bishops. Also this week, read
the CH article by John Huebscher: Children ot borders
provide opportunity
pro-life witness.
These are challenging issues. The Catholic Church has
been involved and offers us guidance in both the moral
content of the immigration issue as well as technical
information regarding
policy and options on how to
respond as a follower of Christ.
Holy Day
The Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
is this Friday. We will celebrate Mass here on Thursday
evening at 7:00 p.m. for this holyday. There will not be
Mass on Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m. St. Thomas,
Montfort will have Mass on Friday morning at 7:45 a'm.

In latest interview, Pope Francis reveals top 10 secrets to happiness
Slowing down, being generous and fighting for peace are part of Pope Francis' secret recipe for happiness.
ln an interview published Sunday in part in the Argentine weekly Viva, the pope listed his Top 10 tips for bringing greater
to one's life:
L. "Live and let live." Everyone should be guided by this principle, he said, which has a similar expression in Rome with
the saying, "Move forward and let others do the same."
2. "Be giving of yourself to others." People need to be open and generous toward others, he said, because "if you
withdraw into yourself, you run the risk of becoming egocentric. And stagnant water becomes putrid."
