Lauren Kapusta took to the cantor stand for the 4th Sunday of Easter mass on May 3rd. You may recall that Fr. Bob was the Celebrant for that liturgy and in keeping with the theme of the “Good Shepherd” started by saying how much he missed his flock. Chris Wagner, our on-staff internet technology guru, picked up on this and put together a special “snippet” from that mass and has posted it to our website. The image of Jesus as the shepherd plus Lauren’s beautiful singing of the Psalm 23 response “shepherd me o God beyond my wants, beyond my fears, from death into life” is certainly another way for all of us to experience the presence of God in these most unusual times.
George Pach got the call for Sunday May 10th. The Gospel for that week was the very familiar John 14: 1-12, which as Fr. Ken mentioned during the mass, is very often used at funerals. In it Jesus said to his disciples “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me…” Mother’s Day was also celebrated that day so if you attended this mass “on-line” you heard two meaningful solos: “Do Not Let Your
Hearts be Troubled” (arranged by Lloyd Larson) which has been sung for the past 9 years, in four-parts, by the Chancel Choir and Shubert’s, “Ave Maria.”
