Friends in Christ,
I have a deep respect for Fr. Jerry Herda, the Archdiocesan Vicar for Clergy. Some of you may remember him as the chaplain and a teacher at DSHA from 1995-2002. In the July 16th issue of the Catholic Herald, Fr. Jerry has a very nicely written article on the Church’s response to the pandemic. He gave me permission to offer it to you. Fr. Charlie

We recognize this is a difficult time for all. However, we also know that some individuals, some companies, and some organizations are still in a position to support others financially.

A note from our Director of Liturgy & Music--
At this time of uncertainty and natural anxiety we are strangely deprived of one of our deepest comforts—coming together to worship at Mass. This beautiful setting by the late Stephen Paulus of a very familiar text by St. Teresa of Avila has been a comfort to me and to members of the choir and I hope that it speaks to you as well. We are never alone, even when it most feels like it. As an inscription at St Swithun's shrine in Winchester Cathedral says: Whatever partakes of God is safe in God. As we partake of God in our hearts and homes in these coming weeks, I pray that we would all know the safety of God's love. Alone God sufficeth.
Praying with you, and with the prayers of Mary our mother,
Tosa Food Pantry
We will again be having baskets available for non-perishable food items in the church vestibule. There will be no specific day for the collection, but items may be brought when coming to Mass. If this is not possible, please call ahead to be sure someone is in the parish offices to accept your donation. Be sure that the items do not have an expired date. Also, since this is the season for vegetable gardening, the Pantry will accept produce. Please drop off your perishable items directly at the Pantry, located at St. Bernard Parish, on Saturdays at 9:00 AM or on Mondays at 1:00 PM. The Pantry continues to welcome any monetary donations. Checks should be made out to Tosa Community Food Pantry and sent to: Tosa Community Food Pantry c/o St. Bernard Parish, 7474 Harwood Avenue, Wauwatosa, WI 53213
