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.

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.

There will be a second collection this weekend for the Black and Indian Missions.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

We will have Stations of the Cross at 6:00 p.m. during the Fridays of Lent (Stations on Good Friday, March 29th will be at 2:30 p.m.).

FIRST COMMUNION

We will have our First Communion on March 10th, Gaudete Sunday, at the 10:45 Mass. Rehearsal will be on March 9th at 10:30 a.m. First confessions will be available following the 10:45 Mass on Sunday February 25th, March 3rd, and following the rehearsal on March 9th.
