Farewell Weekend for Fr. Carl Scheble

As our beloved founding pastor,  Fr. Carl Scheble,  prepares to move on to his new assignment, the parishioners at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne will come together to bid him farewell.

On Sunday, June 12th, the regular Mass schedule will be changed to accommodate a 10:30am outdoor Mass at the Church site (2650 Parker Road). Fr. Carl will also preside at Farewell Masses at 5pm Saturday and 6:30 am Sunday.  The regular 8am, 10am and Noon Masses will all be combined into one 10:30am Mass Celebration.

A few important details for the 10:30am Mass:
* PARKING - the parking lot flow will be much different than normal. Please follow the direction of the parking attendants. For this event, a limited number of spaces will be available on the Paddock Drive side of the parking lot - you may enter at this end of the lot (normally exit-only). Also, what is usually the exit from the lot at Parker Road, will be come the entrance. The special entrance between the church and the rectory for drop-offs for handicapped/disabled will remain open so you may drop off passengers.

* SEATING - a limited number of folding chairs will be available, but if you have your own lawn chairs please bring them to ensure a seat. Since the Mass is outdoors, an umbrella for shade would be appropriate. If you have a pop-up tent that is easy to put up and take down, you could bring that as well.

* LUNCH - immediately following 10:30 Mass, all are invited to enter the Parish Hall for pulled pork sandwiches, cake and cookies and a chance to say a personal goodbye to Fr. Carl.
