Besides his duties in Cumberland, Father Monaghan also has responsibility for the community of St. Edith Stein in Rockland, which marks its twelfth anniversary this year.
To mark this occasion, last Sunday I presided at the Sunday Eucharist and attended a pot-luck luncheon held in St. Patrick's School after Mass.

THIRTIETH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Almighty ever-living God, increase our faith, hope and charity, and make us love what you command, so that we may merit what you promise. Through our Lord.
