Greetings from QHR!
This is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
And Memorial Day Weekend
for the Sunday Readings
for audio readings
God is ultimate mystery, far beyond our imagination and our ability to understand. We speak of God as immanent, dwelling in every cell and atom of the created universe and transcendent, without beginning or end, far more and beyond all of created reality.
We cannot know God in this life but we can and do experience God as Abba Father, the loving and merciful parent, as Jesus the Christ, our brother and Lord, as the Spirit who teaches, guides and protects.
Our God is a family, a community of Love who constantly invites us to join.
Archbishop Naumann has chosen next weekend for when the dispensation to attend Mass shall be lifted. Beginning with Masses next weekend, all Catholics within the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas are to resume the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation.
Of course, those who suffer from underlying health concerns or compromised immunity, or who have genuinely serious concerns about the risk of contracting the coronavirus are not bound by the obligation to attend Mass.
As is tradition, we will be having a Memorial Day Mass at 9:30 am in the cemetery (weather permitting). Please join as we remember our fallen service men and women and all of our relatives and friends who have passed.

We will have a celebration meal on Saturday, June 19th following the 4 PM Mass. Please RSVP to the

A Bit of Humor
Grandpa Alfred drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little gray hair he had left.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, what am I doing? I'm too old for this, and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."
Alf paused for a minute and then said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a state trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."
"Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper.
If you know someone who would want to receive the weekly email, please let me know and I can get them added.
Have a great week!
