First Saturday Devotion, May 5th @ 2:45pm

We meet in the church for our First Saturday Devotion.   Also don’t forget our Rosary after our 11am Sunday Mass, and Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm.

 

According to Lucia, Mary requested the institution of the Devotion of the Five First Saturdays in reparation to her Immaculate Heart. … Devotees of Fátima believe that the First Saturdays help to console the sorrows of God, Jesus, and the Virgin Mary for the sins against Her Immaculate Heart. Download

Anointing of the Sick Mass Thursday, May 3rd at 11am

We will be having an anointing Mass for all who are in need of Christ healing. After the Mass, there will be a lunch in the hall. Below are some excerpts from our catechism that describes the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.
Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that is received by those who are ill or suffering. By the sacred anointing and the prayer of the priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to Christ. The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace, and courage, and his or her suffering is united with the suffering of Christ for the building up of the Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church [CCC], nos. 1520-23).
Through the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick, the Church carries out Jesus’ mission of compassion and healing for the sick. The one who is ill can also be a minister to others. By uniting their suffering to Christ, those who are sick can be signs of faith and witnesses of Christ’s Resurrection to the entire community (Pope John Paul II, Christifideles Laici [The Vocation and the Mission of the Lay Faithful in the Church and in the World], no. 54).
The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is both “a liturgical and communal celebration” that is a “source of strength amid pain and weakness, hope amid despair” and a “joyful encounter” for the entire community (Christifideles Laici, no. 54). The Liturgy of the Word and sacramental anointing of the sick can inspire and comfort both those who are ill and their family and friends who are gathered (CCC, nos. 1517-18).
