Fr. Samuel's e-Epistle for May 17
Please pray for
Chris Askew, who died this past week.
Anna Grayum, who is ill.
First Eucharist masses this weekend
This weekend we have First Eucharist at two of our regular weekend Masses; 10:30 AM and 5:00 PM on Sunday. At 10:30 we have 18 children receiving Eucharist for the first time. At 5:00 PM there will be 2. That means that the 10:30 AM Mass will be a few minutes longer than usual.
Lakeway Memorial Day Celebration
Each year we are pleased to host the Lakeway Memorial Day celebration. All are invited to join us in the church on Friday, May 24 at 11:00 AM.
All priests will be away May 28-30
Frs. Samuel, Barry and Rito will be attending the annual summer gathering of priests of our Austin diocese at the Marriott Resort in Horseshoe Bay from Tuesday, May 28 until Thursday, May 30. With that, on Wednesday and Thursday, May 27 & 28, communion services will be offered both at Emmaus and at Queen of Angels Chapel.
I am looking forward to
Aged to Perfection.
On Thursday, May 30, we will offer once more our annual
Aged to Perfection Luncheon
. Everyone in the parish who is 80 years old or older along with spouses/companions are invited. Since our parish records do not have the ages of everyone, I ask that if you are 80 or older and have not received an invitation to please call the parish office if you would like to come (512-261-8500). This is A-Not-To-Be-Missed event. We offer great food, entertainment and lots of fun.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Samuel Hose
