Father Booth’s Weekly Reflection

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 continues 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.
REST IN PEACE
Victoria Sanderson, daughter of Victor and Bea Sanderson, passed away on June 7th and was laid to rest on June 9th. Eternal rest has been granted unto her and perpetual light now shines upon her. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
For Julia V. Bryant, the sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of her soul from 11th until June 17th. The sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of Julia N.V. Woods from June 18th until June 24th.

All ladies are invited to a morning of devotion next Saturday, July 17th. Adoration will begin at 8:30 a.m., there will be confession during adoration, followed by benediction at about 9:10 a.m., and concluding with a Latin Mass at about 9:15 a.m.
