Sunday, May 29th is Corpus Christi for the English Mass. Since this is our Parish’s feast day, we will move our First Sunday coffee and donuts to May 29th. For the Latin Mass, Corpus Christi falls on Thursday, May 26th. There will be a Low Latin Mass at 6:00 p.m.
DIVINE COMEDY STUDY
In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has recommended all Catholics read Dante’s Divine Comedy. A DVD study on the three books of the Divine Comedy – Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso – will be held this summer at Guadalupe Hall on the grounds of EWTN. It is a Catholic Courses study taught by Professor Anthony Esolen of Providence College. We will begin a 4-part study of the first book, Inferno, on Thursday, May 19th at 7:00 p.m. For full details please see EpiphanyStudies.blogspot.com or contact Mark McCoy at (205) 661-3693 or EpiphanyStudies@gmail.com
