The annual Alumnae Memorial Mass brought together a variety of Ursuline Sisters and alumnae of Mount Saint Joseph Academy on Nov. 6, 2016, to honor the memory of classmates and teachers who’ve gone to heaven.
Father Ray Goetz, chaplain at Maple Mount, said the readings for the Sunday Mass were about faith in eternal life.
“Sometimes we brush our fingertips across the image of God,” Father Ray said. “That is an accomplishment, but God initiated it.”
As we remember those who have gone to heaven, Father Ray said we all have work to do while we’re on earth, but we should also be making time for God.
“We should be planning for this life and the life beyond,” he said.
