RORATE MASS

There will be a Latin High Mass, a Rorate Mass in honor of the Blessed Virgin, offered at the Cathedral of St Paul on Saturday, December 15th at 6:15 a.m. A Rorate Mass is a pre-dawn Mass illuminated only by candlelight symbolizing the spiritual darkness that prevailed prior to the advent of the Baby Jesus.

CONFIRMATION

Bishop Baker will offer the sacrament of Confirmation at the 10:45 a.m. High Mass on Sunday, December 16th. If you have a child to be confirmed, please provide a copy of their baptismal certificate to Fr Booth. If you are not members of Blessed Sacrament, you must obtain the permission of your pastor for your child to receive confirmation here.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES

You should have received a letter and a pledge card from the diocese. Our pledge goal this year is $17,000. All money raised through this annual appeal remains within the diocese.

PRAY FOR OUR SEMINARIANS

Please pray for our seminarians: Deacon Justin Ward, Daniel Sessions, Charles Deering, Doug Hess, Luis Reyes, Matthew Gubenski, and Cristian Padilla. We need to fervently pray for those who are discerning a call to the priesthood.
