Saturday, September 21, 2019 - Father Kapuan series continues / Sundancer support

Last week we were presented with an introduction to the life of Father Emil Kapuan and his many virtues.  Over the next 6 weeks we will be presented with the virtues of Father Kapuan and how we can take them as our own.  The first virtue studied is Mercy, followed by Faith, Hope, Love, Courage, and Mission.

"Learning to give mercy can be difficult for us as men, but it's one of the first steps in truly coming to know the love of God.  Just before his death Father Kapaun made the decision to forgive his captors who allowed so many men to die and to ask for their forgiveness.  This session will help us to embrace our own need for God's mercy and in turn share that mercy with others."

The Band of Brothers will again provide a contribution of spirits (the liquid kind) to the upcoming Sundancer.  A "pass the hat" collection will be taken this week and with the donations a variety of spirits will be purchased for a winner take all raffle during the Sundancer event.  If you prefer to bring a liquor of your choice you may do that this week also.

The Band of Brothers will cook breakfast for women attending the Ladies Retreat in the Parish Hall on Saturday Sept. 28th.  Volunteer chefs are needed to cook and serve at this event, if you are available to help serve ladies of our parish please contact Mark Tristani at

As you know Father Frank has received a new assignment and left for his new parish this week (thanks to those of you who helped him move).  Father Frank has been a spiritual asset to the parish as well as this group and we thank him for his guidance and wish him well.  Holy Rosary parish is privileged to have him as their Pastor.  The 8 a.m. Mass on Sundays is in English - we're sure Father Frank would welcome seeing friendly faces occasionally.

Welcome Father Michael!  Please welcome Father Michael to the Parish as you have the opportunity.  We look forward to the gifts he will bring to the parish.

The Wild Goose DVD Series Begins September 23, 2017

Saturday, we begin the first segment of "The Wild Goose".  The DVD series "The Wild Goose" is designed to help us develop a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit.  Of the three in the Trinity, the Holy Spirit tends to be the one who gets lost in the shuffle.  We look at the Holy Spirit as being one in the Trinity but do we really relate to the Spirit as we do to God and his son Jesus?  In my mind the Holy Spirit is the backbone, the leader, of the Band of Brothers and has been there from the beginning, guiding and pushing us along on our journey to a greater relationship with Jesus Christ.

Breakfast is served at 6:00 a.m. with the presentation starting at 6:30 a.m.

Retiring the Band of Brothers Blog

I've been running the Band of Brothers Blog for a couple of years now, normally updating it weekly and including posts and links to things discussed in the Saturday morning sessions.  It does not really get publicized and I don't think that it is being used or read by anyone on any regular basis.

I think I am going to go ahead and retire it unless there are a few folks actually reading it every once in a while.  If you see this post and would like to see the blog continue, please send an email to

If I don't hear from at least 3 or 4 folks by February 15, 2017, I'll put the blog in suspended mode indefinitely.  Thanks much.

Saturday, November 12, 2016 - The Bible and the Virgin Mary: Week 8 - Mother Crowned in Glory

This week we will focus on Mary’s royal title a little further and then move into another of the Marian dogmas: Mary’s status as Mother of God. For those of us who pray the rosary, this is a familiar title, though perhaps we’ve never given it much thought.

This Session Includes:
Mary’s royal title in the Gospels of Luke and John
The dogma of Mary as Mother of God (Theotokos)
How Mary’s title as Mother of God protects the humanity and divinity of Jesus

Please Join Us!
