September is significant. Our pastoral and spiritual life quickens after the respite of summer. Children are arriving or returning to Annunciation Strong Start Early Learning Academy (Mommy & Me and Pre-K 3 & Pre-K 4/5) and to our Youth Faith Formation programs. Our teens are gathering in our Youth Center in Langley Hall. Societies and organizations are reconvening. Multiple events fill our parish calendar: Bible Study (Psalms and Eucharist), Festival of Faith, Book Club, and Harvest Festival Weekend.
I will be giving my annual State of the Parish talk at weekend Masses September 26-27. (A summary will also appear on our web page in “Fr. Gene’s Homilies.”)
The month will be special this year with the visit of Pope Francis to Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families. Pope Francis will speak of God’s mercy and acknowledge America’s contribution to the world but he will also challenge us regarding income inequality, capitalism without conscience or ethical principles, immigration, sanctity of human life, dignity of the person and care for creation.
