I’ll be away for two weeks. Starting on Monday, I will begin a period of rest and recovery. I will be away from the parish for twelve days. This is partly due to a previously scheduled vacation but mainly based on the advice of my doctor who wants me to take some time off as I continue to deal with my health issue. Fr. Daniel will be “the main man” covering while I am away, however, there will be other priests helping as well. The only change to the schedule will be that no confession will be held at the parish on October 14. If you would like to go to confession on October 14, our neighbors offer the sacrament at the following times: St. John Fisher 8:30 AM, Word of God 12:00 PM, St. Colman 12:00 PM to 12:45 PM, Good Shepherd 3:00 PM, and St. Jude the Apostle following the 4:00 PM Mass. Our normal confession times will resume on October 21.
Attention Readers: A reminder that on Sunday evening we are having an opportunity to gather. This event is simply for us to gather and pray together and then simply enjoy some social time together. It is a way for those of us who share in the ministry of reader to also share some time together. I am looking forward to this nice relaxing time to spend with each of you and show you the appreciation of the parish via prayer and refreshments. I’ll see you at 7:30 PM!
Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered during our 10:00 AM Mass. No pre-registration is necessary. All children (ages 3-8) are welcome and encouraged to attend. Just before the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, these children are invited to go with the weekly leaders from the church to the Davin Room. During this special time, the volunteer teacher leads the children through prayers and readings that are simplified for children. The children learn about the same Scripture readings as the rest of the assembly. They are taught a simplified main message of the readings and are encouraged to share that message with their parents after Mass. Volunteers are needed to teach the lessons each week, as well as to assist with the supervision of the children. If you would be interested in helping, please stop by the Welcome Desk to get contact information for the CLOW parish leader.
