  • St. Catherine Catholic Church collects furniture for refugees

     

    The two big front rooms of the old rectory at St. Catherine of Alexandria Catholic Church in New Haven are filled from front to back and top to bottom with mattresses, microwaves, sofas, dressers, chairs and tables.

    The items were donated to help Catholic Charities of Louisville furnish the homes of refugees, including some of the 100,000 or so from Syria who are expected to arrive in this country in the weeks and months to come.

    Father Chris Lubecke, the pastor of the local church, was astonished at the outpouring of support.

  • ‘Bless me, Father, for I have sinned’

    Several times a week I pass a church that has a sign board out front advertising confessions on Saturdays.

    I confess that when I was a kid I went to a church that had confession booths, only I thought behind the dark wooden doors was either a broom closet, or it was where they kept the devil.

    Kids think crazy things, don’t they?

  • WWJD? You might be surprised...

    A few weeks ago, a woman called me with an idea for my column.
    She had just read “In His Steps,” a book written in 1896 that sparked the “WWJD” (What Would Jesus Do?) phenomena in the 1990s — the WWJD bracelets, bumper stickers, refrigerator magnets, et al.
    The book, written by Charles Sheldon, is a fictional story about a pastor who challenges his congregation not to do anything for an entire year without first asking, “What would Jesus do?” and then do that.

  • ‘That’s good stuff, Harry’

    I’ve mentioned my friend Harry before.

    He’s 86ish and used to golf every day, but one day several years ago he decided he’d had enough and hung up his clubs, or whatever it is you do when you stop golfing.

    Harry and his wife, Charlotte, have sat behind me in church for as long as I can remember.

    When we built the sanctuary 12 years ago, Harry and Charlotte scoped the place out and chose their spot on the second row, second section on the left, Saturday night service.
