Father Booth’s Weekly Reflection

Fr. Booth’s weekly reflection can be read online here. You can also download the entire bulletin for this week in PDF format here.

COVID-19 RESPONSE – MASS & DEVOTIONS

We have an additional Sunday Latin Mass at 7:30, which is intended to aid in the social distancing, and continues on a provisional basis.

NOTE ON CONFESSIONS

If there is a significant line for confession, Fr Booth might say part of the formula of absolution while the penitent recites the act of contrition. The full formula of absolution is always said, but the first part might be said softly during the act of contrition. Thus, you might only hear “and I absolve you from your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

WELCOME TO ALL OF OUR VISITORS

We are glad you have attended Mass with us. If you wish to join Blessed Sacrament, please pick up a parish census form at the Religious Goods Counter located in the vestibule of the front entrance.

IN MEMORIAM

For Fr Mark Beard, the sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of his soul from April 7th to April 13th. The sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of George Lally, Sr. from April 14th until April 20th.

REST IN PEACE

Gail McMahon, our former organist, passed away recently. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

FIRST SUNDAY

This Sunday is the first Sunday of the month. There will be coffee and donuts following the 9:00 Mass.

ANNUNCIATION MASS

A Latin High Mass for the Annunciation will be offered at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 8th. This feast was transferred to April 8th since its usual day landed in Holy Week. The Annunciation is not a Holy Day of Obligation.

CONFIRMATION

We are planning on having Confirmation later this year at a date that is to be determined. The bishop has offered to confirm using the new rite in Latin followed by a High Latin Mass where he will sit in choir.

MEMORIAL SANCTUARY LAMP

Sign-up sheets for 2024, 2025, and 2026 are in the vestibule at the back of the Church.

PRAY FOR OUR SEMINARIANS

Please pray for our seminarians: Patrick DePew, Max Gallegos, John Gardiner, Collins Hess, John Paul Stepnowski, Andrew Vickery, Hunter Limbaugh, Adam Sellers, Francisco Rodriguez, Justin Brouillette, Cameron Huhlein, Patrick Letterle, Wilson Moin, Joshua Callahan, Michael Masny, Ross Gilliland, Franz Mercado, Thomas Rogers, Nick Smith, and Dominic Rumore.

NOTE ON MASS INTENTIONS

There is about a 7-month backlog on Mass Intentions. Thus, requested Mass dates cannot always be honored.
