    If you have not already done so you, you can still join the 300 Club. It is a steal at $60 a year. The proceeds help us meet our bills during the year. And you get to enjoy our annual dinner next April. The May drawing for the 300 Club is this week!

    Thank you to all those who participat-ed in the Forty Hours Exhibition of the Eucharist this weekend. Thank you to those who decorated, those who donated flowers, those who

    cleaned up and especially to those who took the time to show up and sit with the Lord. Our parish benefits from participating in these spir-itual events. Because of everyone’s efforts we are able to have this devotion annually. Thank You!

    Travel Group Reminder: Next Sunday, June 10 beginning at 4PM is our last meeting before we embark on our trip to

    Paris and Rome. We will be meeting in the Boutin Center in Tilton, beginning at 4 PM and this will be followed by our Italian meal. This is a great to get together with our fellow travelers. We will have information on the itinerary, hotels, flights and so much more!. Please plan to join us!

    Congratulations to those newly ordained to the transitional diaconate!

    While there was no priest ordained this year, on Saturday, May 26, Bishop Libasci or-dained two of the seminarians to the transi-

    tional diaconate: Adrian Frackowiak and David Wong. Congratulations to them both! Please keep them in your prayers as they complete their last year of their journey to priesthood.

    When entering St. Paul’s this weekend for mass please observe quiet & be mindful of the people attending Adora-tion in the day chapel (as part of our LX

    THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

    HOW WE REACHED THIS POINT! This weekend, every parish in our Diocese (and many others) are focusing on our severe vocation shortage. We are sharing priests, closing churches and nervously looking at graying and dy-ing priests who are not being replaced. How did we get here? There are many causes and even more theories. Here are a few: There was a clergy surplus in the 60’s. Many young men came back from war and entered the seminary. Bishops had plenty of priests and opened many new parishes to cater to immigrant groups. In big cities, there was a church around every corner! Yet second & third generation Catholics drifted from their ethnic churches to the English-speaking parishes and the ethnic churches ended up with empty pews and empty pulpits. Families in the 80’s & 90’s had 1 or 2 kids (instead of their parents’ half-dozen or more) and they wanted grandchildren. Not much incentive to send a son to the seminary... Also, the large number of nuns & priests meant less involvement by the laity in sharing the faith. It now became a parish responsi-bility. Faith development became a weekly activity, no

    longer a family value. When you throw in the clergy scan-dals, the lack of community support for an interest in the priesthood and the current clergy’s ever-increasing work-load and uncertain future, the current dilemma should be no surprise. Where do we go from here? The quick fix would be married priests or ordained women. But that would bring its own issues. Another would be hiring parish administrators, letting priests focus on ministry. But few parishes could afford the additional costs. We won’t solve the shortage overnight, but there are several steps we can take (beyond prayer): Make faith development a family value once again (Mass attendance, adult, youth and child instruction, home prayer, parish involvement). Redefine the clergy job description so it is stable and not overwhelm-ing. Create a positive atmosphere so that a young man expressing an interest in the cler-ical life is encouraged and provided the means to pursue his vocation. If we do noth-ing, things will only get worse!

    What’s Happening at St. Gabriel’s New tractor: our 20-year old tractor needs to go. Its re-placement should be here this week. The 4-year loan on the new machine will be paid from cemetery receipts. Tilton Rectory: last winter, the furnace failed and the roof leaked. We had water damage everywhere! The roof is currently being replaced. After we’ve finished the repairs, we’ll have to see how we can best utilize this building. Religious Ed. Program: The Charter School is growing and needs more classrooms. Our religion program is changing and will also need more space. We are therefore moving it to the Boutin Center. This will make better use of both buildings. Youth Program: we have hired Karen Ober to help us establish a ministry for our children and young adults. With Confirmation being moved to Grade three, we will need more than classroom instruction to provide adequate faith formation for our youth. We hope to have something underway by September.

    Save the date: The Strawberry Festival, Saturday, July 7. We will need help cutting strawberries, setting up

    tables (Thursday evening), peeling potatoes (Saturday morning), biscuit bakers, people willing to cook the donated turkeys, servers, and clean-up. Watch the bulletin for the specific times as we get closer to the festival. You can contact chairperson, Bette Paquet at 630-5019 for more information.

    Holy Trinity School is looking to find new mem-bers for their School Advisory Board. Since Holy Trinity is a regional school, they are looking for more diversity within the board and are hoping to

    pick up new members from the Lakes Region Deanery par-ishes. If you would like to be nominated to the Advisory Board, please send a letter stating your interest, along with a resume to: Principal Mary Jane Cooney, 50 Church Street, Laconia, NH 03246 or email to: [email protected] This might be a great way for a retired educator to give back to the church and the community!

    NEW CHURCH ENVELOPES You will run out of offertory envelopes

    at the end of June. Your new sets for 2018-2019 will be available at the back of both churches by the middle of the month. Thank you for your continued use of the envelopes. Have you consid-ered E-Giving—check the web site for details.
