Missionary Cooperative Plan, September 5 & 6
Fr. Jim Ward, CM will preach at all Masses, and he will tell us about the works of the Sons of St. Vincent in Kenya, where they teach in seminaries, run a wood working shop and minister to those in need. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
It’s nice to see many people returning to Church after being away for awhile during the summer. The Church gets fuller as we get closer to the Harvest Festival on September 19 and 20. Parishioners understand that certain Masses (especially 10:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.) require arrival on time due to the fact that Church can be very full.
Just as it’s important to arrive on time for Mass, it’s also important to stay for the entire Mass. It’s a little sad to see people leaving after Holy Communion, rather than staying for the “Final Blessing” of the mass. Perhaps some parishioners think that it’s basically over after Communion. These folks may not realize that a time of thanksgiving to God after receiving the Body and Blood of the Lord is vital for Catholics. The Communion Prayer and Dismissal are not optional but important for all of us. Lets all make a resolution to stay until the priest or deacon says: “Go in Peace…” before we choose to exit the Church.
Faithfully, Fr. Pat Walker
