May 2015.   Now that spring seems to have finally arrived, it is time to let the winter fade into memory and turn our thoughts to warm weather things.  Not too soon after I started this assignment, I asked for and received ideas, comments and suggestions for possible weekend Mass time changes.   Read Father's message to us.
