Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Seafood Festival was highly successful for the school. The Cajun Shrimp Pita proved to be once again the favorite dish at this event. Happy faces of the volunteers attracted crowds to the St. Egbert School Booth. Congratulations!

Animals are God’s gifts to humanity. They offer us company, comfort, and joy. On the feast of St. Francis, I had the occasion to bless rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, and hermit crabs. All God’s creatures seemed excited when the Holy Water was sprinkled upon them and so were their owners. It was a wonderful celebration.

I enjoyed lunch with Art & Donna Crane and Cherry LaShan, parishioners who were born in this lovely area. They shared with me the history of Carteret County and St. Egbert Parish. It was an enlightening lesson of the rich local heritage. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I am also grateful to Gage and Peg Spencer for inviting me to dinner. Lynn and Dominic Brugnolotti joined us as we reminisced about our time and favorite places in Michigan. The Spencer’s, as well as myself lived in Michigan. It was nice to relive those good old days and remember our favorite places.

The World Health Organization approved the first ever vaccine for the treatment of malaria. The vaccine consists of a series of four injections, and it is a breakthrough in fighting this disease caused by mosquitos. This looks promising and lives will be saved.

Stay healthy and happy,

Fr. Ryszard

Queridos hermanos y hermanas:

El Festival de Mariscos fue un gran éxito para la escuela. El Cajun Shrimp Pita demostró ser una
vez más el plato favorito en este evento. Las caras felices de los voluntarios atrajeron multitudes al stand de la escuela St. Egbert. ¡Felicidades!

Los animales son los regalos de Dios para la humanidad. Nos ofrecen compañía, consuelo y alegría. En la fiesta de San Francisco tuve la ocasión de bendecir conejos, hámsters, coba- yas, perros, gatos y cangrejos ermitaños. Todas las criaturas de Dios parecían excitadas cuando se les roció el agua bendita y también a sus dueños. Fue una celebración maravillosa.

Disfruté del almuerzo con Art & Donna Crane y Cherry LaShan, feligreses que nacieron en esta hermosa área. Compartieron conmigo la historia del condado de Carteret y la parroquia de St. Egbert. Fue una lección esclarecedora del rico patrimonio local. Gracias desde el fondo de mi corazón.

También estoy agradecido con Gage y Peg Spencer por invitarme a cenar. Lynn y Dominic Brugnolotti se unieron a nosotros mientras recordamos nuestra época y lugares favoritos en Michigan. Tanto los Spencer como yo vivíamos en Michigan. Fue agradable revivir esos buenos tiempos y recordar nuestros lugares favoritos.

La Organización Mundial de la Salud aprobó la primera vacuna para el tratamiento de la malaria. La vacuna consta de una serie de cuatro inyecciones y es un gran avance en la lucha contra esta enfermedad causada por mosquitos. Esto parece prometedor y se salvarán vidas.

Mantente sano y feliz,

P. Ryszard
