WELCOME, BENJAMIN PACKER
Mary, Queen of Angels Family of Parishes is pleased to welcome Benjamin Packer as our seminarian intern! He will begin on August 28th and spend the 2023-2024 academic year with us in order to gain experience living, teaching, and serving in parish life. The following is a brief introduction from Benjamin.
My name is Benjamin Packer. I will be spending the next year in your parishes as a seminarian intern with Fr. Landenwitch. I have completed six years of seminary - four years in college seminary and two in Theology in Cincinnati. I grew up in a homeschooling family with my five younger brothers and two younger sisters. I entered college seminary at Bishop Simon Bruté in Indianapolis after graduating high school and have continued for two years at Mt. St. Mary's in Cincinnati for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. God willing, I will be ordained in just under three years from now. I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, and occasional casual sports whether it is disc golf or a casual game Of ultimate frisbee. Hopefully, I will have the pleasure of meeting many of you in the coming weeks.

WHERE CAN WE FIND GOD?
Father Jacob Lindle reflects on the readings of the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time. In our first reading, Elijah meets God not in the strong wind, not in the earthquake, and not in the fire. He meets Him, instead, in the tiny whispering sound of a small voice. We, too, must find God's voice in the poorest and most vulnerable, the child.
An extreme amendment is on the Ohio ballot in November that threatens the health and safety of women, the rights of parents and the lives of pre-born babies up to 9 months. Vote no November 7th.

The National Eucharistic Revival, an incredibly important initiative for our country, began in June of 2022, with a year of focus at the diocesan level. The parish year of revival begins on Corpus Christi, and lasts until the summer of 2024.
It would be impossible to estimate how much the world is in need of a deeper, more fervent love of the Blessed Sacrament. It would be impossible to estimate how much we are in need of a deeper, more fervent love of the Blessed Sacrament. May the revival start here.
We will need at least 80 people to sign up for one hour of Eucharistic Adoration, from 4:00 PM on June 9 through 10:00 AM on June 11 (with breaks for Mass). Adoration will be held at St. Pat's, but we need parishioners from both parishes in order for this to be successful.
