Letter from Fr. Keith (August 29)

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Dunstan’s, God’s Word holds a special place in our hearts and lives. The Word is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, says the letter to the Hebrews (4:12). From that we learn that when we go to the Bible or hear the … Continue reading

Letter from Fr. Keith (August 14)

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Dunstan’s, On Sundays during Ordinary Time—the current season of the Church’s year—the first reading, gospel, and psalm are typically related. The second reading—from one of the New Testament letters, usually one attributed to St. Paul—most of the time is not directly related to the … Continue reading

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Dunstan’s, Almost every day this week saw me inspecting the tiny plot of ground that is my garden. I dug up a little more soil over the past while, and planted some perennials I’d received from a number of people. They won’t show much … Continue reading
