|Miraculous Medal Mass |
The origins of the Medal of the Immaculate Conception, commonly known now as the Miraculous Medal because of the countless miracles associated with it since its inception, is dated to 1830 in Paris, France when Mary appeared to St. Catherine Labouré, a novice with the Daughters of Charity. Mary directed Catherine to have the Miraculous Medal struck and distributed. Countless numbers of people who have worn the medal have experienced the gracious-ness of God’s love and mercy through the intercession of our Blessed Mother. The Miraculous Medal is one more special way in which we share with Mary the Mission of drawing others closer to her son, our Savior Jesus Christ. A Mass will be offered on Monday, November 30th at 5:30 PM. Miraculous Medals from the Rue De Bac Parish Apparition Site will be blessed and distributed during Mass.
|Mass of Thanksgiving |
As the wonderful Family Thanksgiving Holiday approaches…we will be seated, we hope, before a table where every inch of it is covered with some delicious dish of exquisite food. Sadly, in our immediate area, this will not be the case for many individuals and their families. Father Skip from the Blessed Sacrament Food Pantry has once again broadcasted an “SOS” plea to help stock and restock their pantry shelves due to the more than usual demand for food items…especially as the CoVid crisis continues to worsen. Tuesday November 24th, we will be celebrating our Parish Thanksgiving Mass at 5:30 PM. In addition to receiving the great gift of the Eucharist which means Thanksgiving, please consider bringing with you some non perishable food items that we can donate to Blessed Sacrament. As always, your Eucharistic generosity is greatly appreciated and needed. This Liturgy will be offered in Thanksgiving for the great families who make up our wonderful parish and for all your special intentions and needs. Looking forward to this “bonus” time of worship and connecting with our parish family.
