Serving the Lemay and Jefferson Barracks Neighborhoods
Message from Father Bob
KNEE REPORT #12
Just got back from my orthopedic surgeon, and there’s a little bit of concern on his part about the incision from May which just started leaking some serous fluid again. This is significant because he will not go ahead with the knee replacement surgery until at least two weeks from when it stops leaking fluid for fear of bacterial infection entering the knee joint through that little pinhole.
He did draw some fluid from the knee to test to make sure the six week antibiotic infusion eliminated all the previous bacteria; the fluid will be placed in different cultures to see if any bacteria grows – hopefully not. Results of this test will take two weeks. Let’s keep praying diligently. St. Bernadette pray for us!
HOT ENOUGH FOR ICE CREAM?
COME TO OUR ST. BERNADETTE ICE CREAM SOCIAL!
NEXT SUNDAY, AUGUST 8TH, 11:30am, AFTER THE 10:30 Mass
We will belatedly celebrate as a Parish Family our own Sister Kathy Kull, SSND, who had her Golden Jubilee of her becoming a School Sister of Notre Dame 51 years ago down the road at the Notre Dame Motherhouse on Ripa Avenue. We did not get to properly honor Sr. Kathy last year because of the COVID restrictions for worship services. So we will celebrate with her next week – one year late! Come on over after the 10:30am Mass or come back up if you went to an earlier Mass. We will be serving the ice cream (Ted Drewe’s) from Feckter Hall (east end of the Parish Office).
FUTURE ST. BERNADETTE CELEBRATIONS
FOR OUR PARISH’S 75th ANNIVERSARY!
1947 - 2022
Our Parish of St. Bernadette was founded in September of 1947 by Father John Feckter. So next year, 2022, will be the 75th year as a parish serving the Jefferson Barracks area of Lemay, Missouri. Our St. Bernadette Parish Council approved the general plan of starting the 75th Jubilee celebration with a special Mass and dinner in February, 2022, near the feast day of St. Bernadette Soubirous (Feb. 18th). The grand finale will be in September, 2022, with big a celebration of the Eucharist and a dinner near the date of Sept. 14th because the first Mass for the Parish of St. Bernadette was Sept. 14, 1947.
DON’T FORGET THE DVD AND CD SERIES AVAILABLE IN THE “CORNER ROOM”
Check out some of the interesting and educational sets of DVDs and CDs that I placed in the “Corner Room”, the room that you go through to get to the choir area. You can borrow a set to watch on your TV when the Cardinals or Blues or not on, or listen to in your car if drive a lot. Most are religious, some are historical. Just thought that they were not doing any good hiding in a box in my room. Borrow a set, sign the notebook, and bring it back when you are done, so someone else can use it.
