Father Booth’s Weekly Reflection
COVID-19 RESPONSE – MASS & DEVOTIONS
We have returned to an approximation of our normal weekend schedule with Mass inside the Church. We will have a 4:00 p.m. Saturday English Mass, a 9:00 a.m. Sunday English Mass, a 10:45 a.m. Sunday Latin Mass, and an additional Sunday Latin Mass at 7:30 a.m. The additional Latin Mass is intended to aid in the social distancing, which is the responsibility of those attending Mass. Please be considerate. This additional Mass will continue as long as social distancing is necessary.
COVID-19 RESPONSE – CONFESSIONS
Until further notice, confessions will be done in the Church parking lot with Fr Booth in his car. Those wishing to confess can walk up individually maintaining a six-foot distance. Confessions will be offered at 3:30-3:55 p.m. on Saturday and on Sunday at 7:00-7:25 a.m., 8:30-8:55 a.m., and 10:15-10:40 a.m.
REVISED DISPENSATION FOR SUNDAY MASS OBLIGATION
Per Bishop Raica, all Roman Catholics who reside in the diocese are dispensed from the Sunday Mass obligation through September 6th. No one, especially the vulnerable, should feel obliged to attend Mass.
A REMINDER FROM BISHOP RAICA
Those individuals who have a fever, feel sick, are in a high-risk group (e.g., immuno-compromised or having another serious underlying health condition), are of a more advanced age, or who live with someone in one of these categories, are urged to avail themselves of the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass that I recently renewed for all Roman Catholics living in the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama.
CHANGES TO THE MASS
We will forgo the distribution of the Precious Blood, reception of which is ordinarily optional, and the sign of peace, the omission of which is also optional.
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 memory of Kathryn Mabee, the sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of her soul from July 5th to July 11th. The sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of Marian and Saverio Miranda from July 12th until July 18th.
MEMORIAL SANCTUARY LAMP
Memorial sanctuary lamp sign-up sheets for 2021, 2022, and 2023 are at the religious goods counter in the vestibule at the back of the Church.
This Sunday is the first Sunday of the month. Again, due to COVID, there will not be coffee and donuts following the 9:00 Mass.
