Father Peter’s Announcements
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Will take place on Friday, February 3rd, following the 7:30 a.m. Mass and will conclude on Saturday, February 4th, prior to the 7:30 a.m. Mass. Due to Masses on Friday the Blessed Sacrament will be reposed from 8:45 to 10:00 and 5:15 to 6:00 PM. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed during the throat blessing offered from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. In addition, if we receive a funeral Mass on Friday morning, an email from Fr. Peter with the time will be sent to all parishioners. All are welcome to come and spend an hour with Jesus.
Family Choir Invite
We are well under way to forming our Family Choir who performs during our Family Liturgies every Second Sunday of the Month at 9:00am. Not only are Children invited to lend their musical talents, we also invite their parents and any other Family members to share those musical talents as well. We all know the effect that good Music has on a celebration, how it magnifies the joy of the experience. As
Saint Augustine says who sings prays twice, but when a Family sings, they pray with the power and force of an entire Angelic Choir! If you are interested in joining, please contact our Musical Director, Michael Cooney by email at [email protected] Or if you prefer, the next time you are at Mass, just pop up into the loft and let him know you are interested. Thank you so much for considering adding to our beautiful Liturgies this very exciting component of Faith in musical action.
Anointing of the Sick
Our Lady of Lourdes Celebration of the Anointing of the Sick within a Mass will be held on Saturday, February 11th at 7:30 AM in Church. The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is one of the seven Sacraments of the Church. Any member of the Catholic faithful who is in danger of death,
seriously ill, injured, suffering from a decline due to advanced age or enduring a severe suffering of any kind, is encouraged to attend. Please join us for this very special and very powerful Sacramental Celebration and Mass.
Our next Family Masses will be on Sunday, February 12th and February 26th. Being involved at Mass, your children will be reminded of the REAL meaning of Jesus’ life and teachings. Following the 9:00 AM Mass on both Sundays, all are welcome to the parish hall for fellowship, coffee & donuts.
