During this Holy Season of Advent we shall have Mass on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. Join us as we prepare for the Solemnity of Christmas and as we ponder together our God who comes to us and finds us. The Masses will be held on December 1, 8, 15, and 22. On December 8 we will have a special Mass for the Feast of the Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Catechesis shall be held beforehand. Private Confession will also be available.
Mass shall be sung at 10:30 am on Thursday, November 25. I think it is an appropriate day to give thanks for all the blessings of our Lord during the last Church Year, especially for all the baptisms and confirmations that took place. We also should strive to enter the new Church Year, with thanksgiving, rejoice that we can throughout that year offer our sacrifice of praise to our gracious and merciful Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed this is the highest goal of man and our most free act, one which acknowledges that it is indeed our Lord who works all in all.
Now thank we all our God, with hearts and hands and voices.
For all the things He has done for which His world rejoices.
Who from our mother’s arms has lead us on our way,
Let us gather on the Holy Feast of the Purification of our Lady and the Presentation of our Lord forty days after the Nativity of our Lord. Let us go with our Lord into the Temple as He, who is God, is offered to God, the true Lamb of God taking the place of all other lambs.
A Divine Service will be held on Wednesday, February 1, at 7:00 p.m.
At 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28, the Divine Service for the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels will be sung. Catechesis shall continue right before, and the Schola Cantorum shall meet right after the Divine Service ends.
Let us praise our Lord with the Angels and Archangels!
