Parish Family of St. Thomas of Villanova,
Our Twelfth Annual
Parish Golf Outing is now history. It is one of
two annual fundraisers
which helps us financially to do all the things we
do ministerially to bring Christ’s love and
hope to His people. Needless to say, it was a
great day weather wise, great scoring (both
low scores and the highest high scores), great
food and drink, great golfers numbering a
total of ninety nine, great Oral Auction items and
raffle prizes, and great camaraderie and great
full financial report will be given after we pay
all the bills of this great event.
We owe tons of thanks
to many people who made it such a great day. Thank you to Golf Outing
Tom Nicholas who has again led our Golf Committee
through many meetings to help plan and execute a
perfect day for all of our golfers. Thank you to
his Core Committee of Jack Devron, Dan
Heraty, Greg Korney, Ron Schaefer and Carol
Wilson. Thank you to our friend, Bob Malpede—Head
Professional and General Manager at White Deer Run
—for his excellent cooperation and
support in providing the great day. Thank you to
our volunteers and anyone who did anything to help
with anther very successful event. And thank you
to all of our local businesses and especially our
parishioners who donated items and purchased
raffle tickets for our event!
Were you married in
1965? Then we need to celebrate with you and so
does Archbishop Blaise Cupich.
So—have you registered for the Annual Golden
Wedding Anniversary Mass? Please call Suzie at the
Office so that we can get you an invite. The Mass
will be Sunday, August 30 at 2:45pm at Holy Name
Cathedral in Chicago.
I would like to share
the following prayer written by a husband:
Thank you for my wife. I am so blessed to
have her in my life. I am so sorry that
sometimes I am not patient with her. I snap at her when I get frustrated or over-
whelmed and she doesn’t deserve that. I need to respect her by being patient with
her. Please help me to have self-control in
this area of my life. Transform my heart,
God, let me be a person of peace, full of joy and
tranquility. I pray that every
response towards my wife and my children
and others would be said with patience.
In Jesus name AMEN!
Rev. Thomas R. Rzepiela
P.S. Thank you to all for your patience as we are freshening
up our look in the Parish offices and meeting
rooms. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Hopefully, you will like the new look.
