We recently have had emergency calls when the emergency vehicles have been unable to easily reach the person needing assistance because of illegal parking. This must be stopped. In the next few weeks, Brentwood Police Department will be invited on site to issue citations to those parked in the DRIVEWAYS, WALKWAYS, RED ZONES and BLUE HANDICAPPED SPACES (without posted permit). Please cooperate.
Fr. Jerry

From Fr. Jim:
Thank you to IHM for all your support of the 8 young people who went to Medjugorje's YouthFest earlier this month. They were able to attend the evening YouthFest Mass with over 100,000 attendees, including a group from Syria. They climbed Apparition Hill and Krizevac (Cross) Mountain; heard testimonies and talks; and met Fr. Jozo who prayed over many of them. All of the pilgrims have a deeper appreciation of the beauty of our Catholic faith.
Thank you again. Fr. Jim and the pilgrims.
