My Dear Fellow Parishioners,  

    This week we mark 2 wonderful feasts – the 14th is the Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross, reminding us that Jesus’ passion and death on the cross helps us to bear our own trials in life. Tuesday, the 15th is the Feast of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Mother, recalling the prophecy of Simeon that many sorrows would ’pierce her heart.’ May we remember these sacred feasts in our prayers and meditate on their meaning in our Christian lives.    

    Our ALL CASH RAFFLE drawing is this Sunday at 3 p.m. in the Church Park. Please try to join with us! Tickets returns, as well as last minute purchases, can be made at the table in the Park beginning at 2 p.m. Thanks for all your support and generosity!

    The dispensation to attend Mass has been continued until November 28th. However, if you wish to attend weekend Masses, you’re welcome to join us by calling the phone number provided, reserving space at the Mass of your choice. In addition, Sunday Mass is still offered on Facebook and YouTube.

    Our Weekend and Daily Mass schedules as well as times for Confessions are posted in this bulletin.  Also, the church is open daily, from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Saturday ‘til 6 p.m., and Sunday ‘til 11 a.m.

    CCD classes will resume shortly. My thanks to Mrs. Parzyck and her staff of dedicated teachers for all their efforts in preparing to teach our children in an all-virtual fashion. Schedule information can be found in this bulletin or by calling the church office.

    Confirmation will be celebrated October 3rd & 4th. The class will be divided into 3 groups to comply with safety requirements. The 10th grade parents meeting will be held Mon., 9/21 at 5:30 pm in the Lyceum.

    RCIA will begin in September. If you would like more information about the Catholic faith and reception of the Sacraments, please call the church office so an intake meeting can be arranged.

    Parish Council will meet this coming Monday, 9/14 at 7 p.m. in the Lyceum. All elected and committee members are urged to attend.

    Thanks to everyone for the support our parish monetarily by using the collection box in church, dropping/mailing contributions to the rectory and to those using E-Giving. God bless you for your generosity and stewardship!
