ADORATION

ATTENTION NEEDED

The weekly Monday Adoration from after the 8:00 am Mass and the 7:00 pm Mass is a Great source of Blessing to us as a Parish as well as for the individuals who avail themselves to it. Consider also the people who come and pray for those who work and cannot attend. So we all receive blessing for this pious action each week.

BUT we have a Problem!

We Need People who will Initial the sign up sheet in the Narthex. 2 initials (at least; 3 or 4 would be better) for each hour. This is 16 people who will commit to 1 hour for the 4 Mondays of the Month they sign up for. Considering our weekly attendance hovers around the 1000 mark, 16 people is not unreasonable. Those who sign up are expected to be in Church for their Hour, however life happens, someone gets sick, has to attend a family function, etc. that’s why its vitally important that there is AT LEAST 2 signed up for each hour, so that someone is always there before the Blessed Sacrament exposed.

Church law forbids the Holy Eucharist exposed in the Monstrance to be left un attended.

If we cannot get the needed support for this wonderful weekly gift it will have to be discontinued.

Please consider signing up for the Mondays of any particular Month for 1 Hour.

God Bless

Fr. Dan

 

 

THINKING AHEAD FOR LENT

This Year Ash Wednesday falls on Feb. 14, Valentines Day. In planning ahead remember Ash Wednesday is a day of Strict Fast and Abstinence. All Lenten days are Fast days, but the Church imposes only 2 on all the faithful, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The Bishop has said there will be no dispensation for Feb. 14. In planning any observance for Valentine’s Day, work around the 14th. The 13th (the better day) or 15th would be better days to commemorate the day. Ash Wednesday, Valentine’s Day this year is a day of Penance, Fast and Prayer.

PRAYER FOR OUR POLICEMEN

O Almighty God, Whose great power and eternal wisdom embraces the universe, Watch over all policemen and law enforcement officers everywhere. Protect them from harm. In the performance of their duty to stop crime, robbery, riots and violence. We pray, help them keep our streets and homes safe, day and night. We commend them to your loving care because their duty is dangerous. Grant them strength and courage in their daily assignments. Dear God, protect these brave men and women. Grant them your almighty protection. Unite them safely with their families after duty has ended. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. St. Michael the Archangel, Patron of police, pray for them.

Remember all these Intentions, as we offer our daily prayers.
