Father Booth’s Weekly Reflection

Fr. Booth’s weekly reflection can be read online here. You can also download the entire bulletin for this week in PDF format here.

Franciscan Sisters of the Poor of Jesus Christ

We have a wonderful group of Franciscan Sisters living next door to the church. These joyful sisters tirelessly serve the poor of Birmingham. In their efforts to conform to the charism of their namesake, Saint Francis, they take a vow of poverty and live by Divine providence. If you would like to know how you can help them, and the poor, a sign-up sheet is available. They will be extremely grateful for your support!

COVID-19 RESPONSE – MASS & DEVOTIONS

We have an additional Sunday Latin Mass at 7:30, which is intended to aid in the social distancing, and will continue on a provisional basis.

NOTE ON CONFESSIONS

If there is a significant line for confession, Fr Booth might say part of the formula of absolution while the penitent recites the act of contrition. The full formula of absolution is always said, but the first part might be said softly during the act of contrition. Thus, you might only hear “and I absolve you from your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

WELCOME TO ALL OF OUR VISITORS

We are glad you have attended Mass with us. If you wish to join Blessed Sacrament, please pick up a parish census form at the Religious Goods Counter located in the vestibule of the front entrance.

IN MEMORIAM

REST IN PEACE

Elizabeth Ransom, sister of Pete Ransom, passed away on June 3rd and was laid to rest on June 9th. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
