Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  Welcome to the unofficial start of the summer season.  Before we know it, the 4th of July will be upon us.  Thankfully, though, we still have some time before the full onslaught of the summer season.
So let’s take advantage of the nice weather before the large crowds arrive.  Take advantage of the beach, the boardwalk, golfing, bike riding and going out for a meal before the town gets too crowded.  As residents, we enjoy the quieter time before the 4th of July and after Labor Day.  The weather is good and the crowds are smaller.  Once we are in the height of the summer season, many of us stay low for those two months and just patiently wait for the quiet time to return.
Years ago, when I was in Ocean City, I was walking on the boardwalk with several parishioners.  I had arrived maybe a month before.  One of the parishioners remarked if we all knew how lucky we were.  She went on to say that most of the people on the boardwalk saved all year so that they could come for their week or two of vacation.  On the other hand, we lived in this wonderful area and could enjoy it year round.  Don’t you agree?  How lucky, how blessed we are to live in this special and beautiful spot.  We do indeed get to enjoy it each day of the year.  Don’t take if for granted.  Appreciate this blessing and be thankful for it.

Have a Great Bethany Beach Week!

As many of you have heard by now, Fr. Ralph Castelow will be officially retiring next month.  If you would like to say farewell, next Sunday, June 2,  from 2PM to 4PM in Delaney Hall, you will have the chance to say goodby and wish him well.  Everyone is invited to attend!
