Mass on the Grass

Mass on the Grass

Sunday, September 18, 2016: With the constant threat of rain–and even more than a few drops at times–our second annual Mass on the Grass was a huge success.  There was standing room only in the tent, prayerful noise and praise to God, and a great hot dog lunch after Mass.  Praise be to God!  See the full album on Facebook!

Marian Hymns

Hymns to the Blessed Mother this weekend:  Traditionally, the month of May has been dedicated to Mary, the Blessed Mother of Our Lord. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early for Mass this weekend, May 7/8, Mother’s Day weekend, to join in singing some of the beautiful Marian Hymns that have been passed on to us throughout the years. We will begin singing about 15 minutes before the start of Mass.

 

 

Holy Spirit Novena

In his homily May 1 and in the “From the Pastor” bulletin notes, Msgr. Paul has asked us to pray the novena to the Holy Spirit. A Novena is a 9-day prayer form so to end this by Pentecost Sunday, May 15, we need to begin on Friday, May 6. The Church has provided many prayers for the Holy Spirit down through the centuries. Click this link:  Holy Spirit Novena
