Looking ahead to Next Weekend...and Beyond!

What's up this weekend?

1.  This weekend is pro-life Sunday.  May we as a parish continue to pray for the protection and the sanctity of all human life from the moment of conception until natural death.

2.  May we continue to pray for the Synod of Bishops meeting on the family which will be held in Rome from October 5th - 19th.  As we pray for the protection of all human life may we pray for our families and those issues they face each single day.

3.  We will be having the "Living Rosary" Sunday October 5th at 2pm.  Weather permitting we will be having a procession with the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary from Brenner Hall to the Church.  All parishioners are invited to participate in this great spiritual event.  

Looking into next week...

On Tuesday October 7th the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered at 12:15pm in the afternoon to mark the memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary.  All parishioners are invited to attend.  The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered from 11am - Noon.  Tuesday October 7th also marks the one year anniversary of Father Carroll's appointment to Saint Patrick Church in York.  




Father Fred will celebrate the School Mass on Friday October 24th, however, that will be the only Mass celebrated in the Parish that week.

In the Eyes of God...you are a treasure!

Brothers and sisters,

In the past few weeks we have focused on the theme "Labor of Love."  Each week we paused to reflect on the 3 T's (time, talent, and treasure).  The last two weeks we focused in particular on treasure where we paused to reflect upon our true treasure.  Our time with the Lord and the talents He has blessed us week.  This week we focused on our monetary contributions.  Our parish is indeed blessed with many generous individuals who support the parish not just financially but also by sharing their time and talents.  

As we closed our reflection today the Spirit moved me to pause and think about ourselves as treasures in the eyes of God.  Indeed we are created in His image and likeness.  This week as I invited us to pray for the Synod of Bishops meeting on the family may we also offer a prayer in thanksgiving for the gift of our parish family. Below is a picture from the sanctuary in which I took before the Profession of Faith.  Here we stand before the Lord offering ourselves up to Him!  As we offer the Lord our gifts and talents may we strive to see ourselves as gifts before His eyes.   

Sincerely in Christ,

Reverend Keith M. Carroll

Father Carroll's Homily for the 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time...Part II on the theme of Treasure

                                                                Part II on the theme of treasure

Homily for the 26th Sunday of Ordinary Time “Have in you the same attitude that is also in Christ Jesus.” Isn’t that a perfect line to begin our reflection for this Sunday? We can really elaborate on that for a while. As promised last week we continue on the theme of treasure and reviewing our reflection we pondered how our time with the Lord and our talents can be seen as our true treasure. Last week was also Catechetical Sunday where the theme for the year was “teaching about God’s gift of forgiveness” as I stated how the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the other Sacraments are treasures in the Church. So our true treasure is so much more than our monetary contributions. Yet monetary contributions are necessary. As you rely on your paycheck we rely on your generosity to assist us in being able to provide education programs, spiritual enrichment, and practically speaking like everyone to pay our bills. No one likes to talk about money. Trust me; I will be the first to admit I don’t. Why are we afraid to talk about money? Why are we afraid of a piece of paper? Jesus Himself often talked about money. He even did so in last week’s Gospel. Why would our Lord and Savior focus on money? Quoting from Mathew Kelly’s book Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic he writes “so much of our hopes, fears, security, and identity can be affected by money, and so we tend to be on high alert around the subject.” Isn’t that the truth, especially today in light of our current economic situation! Quoting again from the book, “money has a way of getting ahold of us, and from there it can control us in ways that are so subtle that we are often not even aware of it at the time.” Yes money can affect our decision making process especially in times such as these; however there is a little phrase that is printed on the back of our currency that serves as a reminder for how we should all live. You know the phrase…“In God we trust!” So when it comes to sharing our treasure…our time, our talents, and our monetary gifts we must follow the principal of trusting in God. Now I am going to take a practical moment in the liturgy and it is my hope that you will see the spiritual benefit of it…the offertory. You know that time when the ushers come up the isle extending baskets. Did you know that was one of the most profound moments in the liturgy? You reach into your pockets, pull out your envelope or loose cash and place it into the basket. That moment provides an opportunity for you to offer something of yourself to the Lord. In my labor of love letter to the parish I asked members who are not contributing regularly to consider offering the parish $7.00 a week. That is one dollar a day for each day of the week, so that would be $365.00 dollars a year and I asked for $135.00 for the Lenten Appeal bringing the total yearly contribution to $500.00. Another way of contributing is through tithing and tithing is giving one-tenth of one’s income to the Lord through the Church. Tithing is another way to express our generosity to the Church. Now some might not be able to contribute one-tenth of their income now but might still be interested in tithing, so here’s a consideration just raise your income just a little bit (maybe 1 percent) each year to build yourself up to that point. So if you are considering tithing you don’t have to make drastic changes, just move slowly and build yourself up to that point. A question that often comes up can I pay biweekly or once a month. The answer is of course you can, because some do get paid differently. However, I would encourage you to use envelopes weekly. If you feel uncomfortable putting in an empty envelope please feel free to write on it that you pay monthly or if you like you can just throw some spare change in it…we won’t complain. Now I know some choose not use them, however I will still make my plug for them because they are very beneficial to me. Everyone knows my name, you see me up front here week after week. It’s easy for 3,000 people to know one name, but it is extremely difficult for this one individual to know all 3,000 names. While it is certainly not a perfect method using envelopes or at least checks do help me especially when you come to seek a form to be a Godparent for baptism or sponsor for confirmation that requires my signature. One of the requirements is that you attend Church regularly and that helps me especially when I don’t know everyone by name. Again not a perfect method but again it is a help…and for those who know me already know I need all the help I can get! Finally keep this in mind, you can’t take it with you. Please consider Saint Patrick Church in your last will and testament. I know families like to make sure they are taking care of the needs of their loved ones but please consider making a gift to the Church. This past year we have benefited from the generosity of individuals who have entered into eternal life, in fact if it wasn’t for these bequests we would have had to take a loan with the diocese because we would not have made our budget. I would not have been able to start the safety and security project or pay for the repairs and upgrades to the boiler as mentioned in the bulletin this week. Any gift no matter how big or small helps benefit our parish and its ministry. Brothers and sisters I conclude my reflection my asking you to consider sharing your treasure…your time, your talents, and your monetary treasure with the Lord through the Church. May the Lord continue to bless you and your families! Don’t be afraid to put your trust in the Lord for it is in God we trust.

The Pastor needs YOUR help!!! Help us beautify our property!


Brothers and sisters,

Today we had a few college students from York College help Joe Popson and myself do some weeding in the upper lot...well ok more Joe Popson than myself.  ;)  As we were doing this project it got us thinking (yes I know that can be dangerous) maybe we can get a team of volunteers or perhaps several families to take care of one of the planted areas in the upper lot and perhaps some other areas around the property.

Truth is we have a lot of property to maintain...and many hands make the load a lot easier.  If you are interested in this ministry I will put you in touch with Joe and we can start to get a schedule together.  As we focus on "labor of love" here is one area I would greatly appreciate your assistance.

Pope Francis' Prayer for the Synod of Bishops Meeting on the Family

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate
the splendor of true love,
to you we turn with trust. 

Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too
may be places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic Churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
may families never again
experience violence, rejection and division:
may all who have been hurt or scandalized
find ready comfort and healing. 

Holy Family of Nazareth,
may the approaching Synod of Bishops
make us once more mindful
of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,
and its beauty in God's plan. 

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.

Brothers and sisters,

A prayer card with the above prayer will be in the pews this weekend with some extra's in the back of Church on the gift table and some upfront on the widow seals by the exits.  Please take one per family. These cards were donated to you by me for you to pray as a family for the upcoming Synod of Bishops on the family which will be held in October.  I would like to invite you to take one and pray it together!

Father Carroll's Homily for the 25th Sunday of Ordinary Time...September 21st 2014

Homily for the 25th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Think about the very last line from today’s Second Reading from St. Paul’s letter to the Philippians, “Only, conduct yourselves in a way worthy of the Gospel of Christ.” That brothers and sisters is our calling to live lives worthy of the Gospel. Now we know how difficult that can be. The early disciples like us were sinners and made terrible mistake in their lives. For us as Christians to live lives worthy of the Gospel of Christ calls us to daily conversion. There is nothing that can separate us from the love of Christ, only we can separate ourselves from Him. Yet He is always there calling out to us…come back…come back. This week we focus on the theme of treasure. When we think of treasure our immediate thought is that of monetary contributions…don’t worry we will get there, but first we must ask ourselves what consists of a true treasure. We began our reflection two weeks ago speaking about time. Ponder for a moment do we consider our time spent with the Lord a treasure. It is important that we make time for the Lord who loves us. Don’t forget we pondered just last week the Lord’s love for each of us as we celebrated the Feast of the Exultation of the Most Holy Cross. The Lord loved each of us this much and in light of today’s Gospel reading He loves us all equally. It doesn’t matter when we come back to Him if we wonder astray He will love us with the same intensity He loves the one who doesn’t. Talent is another form of treasure, and it is one we can tend to sweep under the rug. Each one of us has a talent and we are called to use it to its fullest potential. Use your talents to build up God’s family, use your talents for the betterment of your parish. God needs us to respond. This week we honor our catechists and teachers for Catechetical Sunday. I always like to mention our families for our parents are the primary educators of their children. Thank you to all of our parents, volunteer catechists and school teachers for all that you do to teach the faith. The theme for Catechetical Sunday is “teaching about God’s gift of forgiveness.” What a theme! God is indeed merciful! Brothers and sisters, we are blessed with a great treasure in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There is no greater catechetical tool at our disposal than the very sacrament itself. I am going to ask a rhetorical question…when was the last time you encountered God’s merciful love. If it’s been years…don’t let that stop you and if you don’t know what to say that’s ok most priests are willing to help you. Take advantage of it…don’t delay. Experience the Lord’s goodness. Some of our teachers are tasked this year with the awesome task of teaching their children about God’s merciful love to prepare them for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Others will be tasked preparing their students to receive the Sacrament again. One of the reasons for the differences of Mass times was to allow me to be present sacramentally for our religious education students. Our students in the school have the opportunity to go to confession throughout the year. Now our religious education students will have that same opportunity. Now I mentioned when we think of treasure the first thing that comes to mind is monetary contributions. We first had to establish what our true treasure is…and our true treasure is our time spent with the Lord, and our talents. This weekend’s theme for Catechetical Sunday “teaching about God’s gift of forgiveness,” reminds us that the Sacrament of Reconciliation and all the other sacraments are also a great treasure. It begins with renewing our hearts, then renewing our faith. Take advantage of the opportunities provided to grow in your knowledge of the faith, utilize the parish library, join Sister Monica’s Tuesday Bible Studies, and take advantage of the programs offered throughout the year. Now that we have established that as our greatest treasure, we can talk about our monetary offerings, but that can wait till next week.

Our Second Volunteer Profile...Bruce Varholy


With our Director of our Religious Education, Sue Varholy, occupied with teaching the 8th grade each Sunday, there was a great need for an office manager to answer the door and phone, lead the rosary and the Angelus and to direct people to the appropriate classrooms. When he was given the choice between teaching or being the office manager, it was an easy choice.  So for the last 4 years, Bruce Varholy has held the official title of Religious Education Office Manager. He has graciously given freely of his time, week after week, to help run our Religious Education program. He does whatever needs to be done to help the program run smoothly. When his wife was out of commission for weeks because of surgery, he stepped in and thanks to Bruce (and all the dedicated catechists!) the program ran seamlessly in her absence. We thank Bruce and all the volunteers who graciously and generously give of their time and talents week after week. May the Lord bless him abundantly.

Father Carroll's message for Catechical Sunday.

Brothers and sisters,

This upcoming Sunday September 21st is Catechetical Sunday.  At our 10:45am Mass our catechists for the Religious Education Program, and our Catholic School teachers will be present.  This years theme is God's Gift of Forgiveness.  As catechists we are charged for handing on the faith and teaching God's merciful love is one of our core central teachings.

Please pray for all our catechists and teachers who sacrifice their time and talent for our parish.  I am truly grateful for their dedication to this essential ministry.  Please join me in praying for them and supporting them in all that they do for us.

I also want to say a word of thanks to all our parents who are the primary educators of their children.  You are the primary catechists.  Please know all of our catechists, teachers, and myself are truly grateful for all that you do and are humbled by the trust you place in us to assist you in your roles as the primary educators of your children.

Finally I wish to say a word on our focus this weekend of treasure.  As you know this month we have been focusing on the theme "Labor of Love," and there are many people in our parish laboring very hard to build up the faith in our parish family.  When we think of treasure our immediate instinct is to think of monetary contributions.  However, looking at it in the context of time and talent, today we recognize one of our greatest treasures...are hardworking dedicated catechists and teachers.  This weekend please join me in thanking them for all that they do for our children and for our parish at large!

Reverend Keith M. Carroll

Homily for the Feast of the Exultation of the Most Holy Cross...continuing this week on the theme of talent.

Homily for the Feast of the Exultation of the Most Holy Cross and a continuation of our “Labor of Love” theme focusing on talent.

Homily for the Feast of the Exultation of the Cross

“Christ Jesus, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped.  Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.”  This week we celebrate the feast of the exultation of the most Holy Cross of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We turn to the cross of Christ for it symbolizes the very means of our salvation. 
Continuing with our theme of “labor of love,” we focus this week on talent.  Everyone’s got talent!  Yes everyone here in this Church has talent.  Some are skilled laborers…electricians, plumbers, and roofers.  We have some gifted musicians and singers in the congregation.  Also we have some accountants, lawyers, doctors, and nurses.   Perhaps someone here might be a good listener that’s also a special gift and talent. 
One of the biggest obstacles we face sharing our talent(s) is often ourselves.  We often feel that we don’t have the time to get involved in one more thing.  Many of us do have busy schedules.  We all struggle with juggling them.  Sometimes however we have to make sacrifices.  Brothers and sisters, we can learn something from Christ today courtesy of Saint Paul, when he wrote, “he emptied himself.”  There are times we need to empty ourselves and offer back to Him. 
As we move forward looking at our commitment to our parish I would like to ask you to consider getting involved in one thing at the parish.  Deacon Michael DeVivo is currently working to update the listing of our parish ministries and it is my hope to highlight one of them in the bulletin each month.  We are using this year to update our data in preparation for next year providing our parish groups an opportunity to share with the parish their ministries at a ministry fair.  It’s a work in progress.  Nothing happens overnight!  We are moving forward!  In the meantime please consider how you might want to get involved.  We need your help now.  Think about what you would like to do.  As members of the Saint Patrick Church parish family we all share a responsibility in keeping it together. 
Another thing to think about as we celebrate the feast of the exultation of the Holy Cross…laboring can be hard.  Work wasn’t meant to be easy.  Keeping a parish together takes a lot of hard work and a lot of individuals.  We are called “not to forget the works of the Lord!”  Our Lord worked day in and day out in His Father’s vineyard proclaiming the good news of salvation.  He preached the Gospel all the way to the cross!  As you gaze upon the crucifix don’t look upon it in sadness, but rather look upon it with hope!  The crucifix stands as a symbol for all Christians of the Lord’s victory over sin and death.  When life gets hard, look to the crucifix!  The cross is the very means of our salvation, and without it there would be no salvation. 
So today gaze at the image of Christ crucified.  Just think for a moment about this, if life seems to be going smoothly and on auto pilot then something must not be right.  Yes the Lord allows us to be happy, but if there are no bumps or obstacles in that road anywhere, then we must honestly ask ourselves are we doing God’s will.  It was only two weeks ago for the 22nd Sunday of Ordinary Time when we heard the Lord say, “Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.”  Be open to sharing your gifts and talents.  Don’t be afraid of the cross, carry it proudly! 

Knights of Columbus Chicken BBQ tomorrow

Brothers and Sisters,

I forget to mention this evening in the announcements that our Knights of Columbus will be selling Chicken BBQ following the morning Masses (8am and 10:45am).  

Our Knights of Columbus do a lot for the parish.  They support our seminarians, support the Pregnancy and Family Resource Center (through their efforts they led the push to purchase an ultrasound machine for them), and support our parish (most recently donated $1,000 to our ongoing safety and security project).  

Please consider supporting this fundraising effort.  As pastor of Saint Patrick Church and as their chaplain I am truly grateful for all that they do.  Finally as I spoke this evening asking you to consider sharing your talents I would invite any Catholic gentlemen 18 years old or older to consider joining the Knights of Columbus.  It truly is a great organization!  


Fr. Keith M. Carroll, SK

Worthy Past Grand Knight Phil Kelly invites everyone to stop on by to support their Chicken BBQ

Special Collections

This weekend coming up...is the Peter's Pence Collection

This weekend our Diocese will take up the Peter’s Pence Collection, which provides the Holy Father with the funds he needs to carry out his charitable works around the world. The proceeds benefit the most disadvantaged: victims of war, oppression, and disaster. Join our Holy Father, Pope Francis, as a witness of charity to those who are suffering. Please be as generous in this weekends’ collection. 

Middle East Crisis Special Collection
              NEXT WEEKEND                           

Next weekend the parishioners of our Diocese are asked to express their solidarity with Christians and other minorities in the Middle East in the face of ongoing violence and persecution. There will be a second collection with the proceeds going to Catholic Relief Services for the support of immediate humanitarian and pastoral needs, as well as the cost of long-term church reconstruction. Our Christian brothers and sisters and other innocent victims of the violence in the Middle East urgently need assistance. Thank you.
As always thank you brothers and sisters for your generosity and support to these special collections!  You always respond so generously to the needs of our brothers and sisters in need.  May the Lord continuously bless you and your families! 
Father Carroll

As it has been posted outside the confessional and as I announced last weekend there will be NO CONFESSIONS ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON.  That afternoon I will be at the greatest place on earth...no not Hershey Park, even better...Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

This is a make up game for Tuesday August 12th (a day I actually took off).  Thank you for your understanding and pray for nice weather...and perhaps a victory!  ;)

Parish Emergency Phone

Brothers and sisters,

I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that we do have a parish emergency phone number for sacramental emergencies.  When you call the parish number after hours the message will give you this number.

This number is to be used for sacramental emergencies (the last rites or scheduling a funeral Mass) only.  While the phone is usually on me I may not be able to answer the call right away.  It is very important for you to leave a message and I will get back to you soon as I am able.   If you don't hear back from me in a reasonable time please call back (I may be celebrating Mass or in the middle of another engagement).  There have been situations when the wrong number was dialed and I did not get a message.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as I try to tend to everyone's spiritual needs.  Being the only priest in a parish can have its challenges so I do appreciate your kindness!  May we ask the Lord to continue to bless all of us as we together labor in love in God's vineyard.
