From the Pastor's Desk:

After each weekend mass there will be a blessing of cars and motorcycles in honor of St. Christopher Day, which is July 25. Christopher is the patron saint of many places, including: Germany, Italy, Croatia, The Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Lithuania, Latvia, Cuba; and Philippines. St. Christopher is a widely popular saint, especially revered by athletes, mariners, ferrymen, and travelers. He holds patronage of things related to travel and travelers — against lightning and pestilence — and patronage for archers; bachelors; boatmen; soldiers; bookbinders; epilepsy; floods; fruit dealers; gardeners; a holy death; market carriers; motorists and drivers; sailors; storms; surfers; toothaches; mountaineering; and transportation workers. Saint Christopher is venerated by several Christian denominations as a martyr killed in the reign of the 3rd-century Roman Emperor Decius (reigned 249–251). Those who want, are welcome to take with them a free
auto decal with the picture of St. Christopher, and install it on their car. They will be distributed by ushers with the bulletin. May God bless you on your ways of traveling and always brings you home safe and sound! Fr. Ptak
