5:30 MASS CANCELLED NEW YEAR’S DAY
BECAUSE NEW YEAR’S DAY FALLS ON SUNDAY,
THERE WON’T BE A MASS AT 5:30P.M.
THIS MASS WILL RESUME THE FOLLOWING WEEK.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
A Message from Fr. Mark:
This is to inform all parishioners that beginning in the New Year we will no longer have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament or the Rosary on Tuesdays. The reason is a lack of people. Many times there is no one in church when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. This is against Church and Cannon Law, which states that there must be two people present at all times when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. At the 5:00 Rosary there are only three or four people.
Starting the New Year we will have Benediction after the 8:15a.m. Mass. We will continue to have the St. Jude Novena Mass at 5:30p.m. But this, too, will be evaluated in the future if numbers do not increase. This decision was made in consultation with the Parish Spiritual Life Committee.
These changes will start on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.
