News, Pastor's Note

Pastor’s Note 11/17/19

Blessed Sacrament parish hired a new part-time custodian who will work daily: late afternoons and evening hours.  We are still looking to fill another part-time custodial position for a few morning hours. 

The St. Faustina: Love and Mercy movie tickets are still available at local theaters or online for one more show on Monday, December 2nd at 7:00 pm. I highly recommend this movie to all Catholics. 

Next Sunday, on December 1st, the Church starts a new Liturgical Season: Advent.  During these four weeks, as we joyfully anticipate the celebration of Christmas, we will have additional opportunities to grow in our faith. 

As in previous years, to help prevent the spread of flu and other infectious viruses, we will start to distribute Holy Communion at Masses under one species only.  The Church firmly believes and teaches that the Risen Christ is fully present in His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity under the form of the consecrated bread. 

The Divine Mercy Cenacle groups fill up quickly.  Now is the time to register; please see page 4 for additional details.

To underscore the close connection between the Mass and the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy prayers, we will offer Masses immediately before the start of the sessions on Thursdays at 6:00 pm throughout the Advent / Christmas season. 

Happy Thanksgiving, 

Fr. Matt
