    Parish Office PASTORAL POST

    Written by Joel Ensign

    I was born with a love of music and an ability – a gift some say, that has

    allowed me to bring joy into the lives of many people, young and old

    alike. I began publicly sharing this gift when I was in the 5 th

    grade. After

    my music teacher heard me play, he worked with me and eventually I was

    invited to play during the school Mass on the 3 rd

    Friday of every month. I

    knew then that this was my passion. Bringing the gift of music to others

    has been a dream come true for me.

    I came to St. Matthias Parish in 1993 when Father James Smith hired me as

    the church organist. Immediately I felt at home in this parish and

    considered it a privilege to serve under Father Smith. Throughout the

    years I met wonderfully kind and giving people, fellow parishioners, Father

    Larussa and Father Davis, and each one of you has added to the joy I feel as

    the organist. I have been honored to serve St. Matthias in this

    capacity. Playing the organ over these last twenty-six years at the Masses,

    funerals, weddings, graduations, holidays, and special celebrations has

    filled my heart and created many memories that will live on forever.

    Now, life moves on as life always does, and I am writing this post

    announcing my retirement, effective May 1, 2019. I am looking forward to

    much needed rest and relaxation. While my plans are still being

    developed, I know I will visit with family and friends, still play concerts and

    join you all as a fellow parishioner. Please know I will continue to offer my

    services to all as needed, simply get hold of me.

    Thank you all for being my church family over the years. I am very blessed

    by all of you.

    I remain your humble servant,

    Joel

    STEWARDSHIP MEDITATION

    “Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so

    I send you.’” (John 20:21)

    Peace – the first gift of the risen Lord. Just as Jesus sent the apostles out

    into the world, so too, He sends us. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to

    be grateful and generous. Look for opportunities to share His peace, not

    only within our local parish boundaries, but outside of them as well. In

    giving, we receive the peace of Jesus Christ.
