CCD SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION HAS RESUMED

Classes continue at the the regularly scheduled time (after the 8am Mass).

CHURCH UNITY OCTAVE JANUARY 18-25

This octave was established Pope Benedict XV in 1916 as the “Chair of Unity Octave” beginning on the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter on January 18th and ending on the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul on January 25th. The pope established this octave of prayer “that Christians who have unfortunately withdrawn from the Catholic Faith should at length be recalled to it as to a forsaken Mother.” Indulgences are available for those who participate. A full set of prayers and daily intentions, as published by Pope Pius XII in 1956 for the Octave can be found at http://www.cantius.org/go/liturgy_devotions/devotional_life/ church_unity_octave/. Copies will be available in the church.

SEPTUAGESIMA SEASON JANUARY 31ST – FEBRUARY 16TH

Septuagesima is a series of 3 Sundays prior to Ash-Wednesday during which the liturgical color shifts to violet; the Alleluia is suppressed until Easter; and the Gloria and Te Deum are both limited to feasts. It is preLenten and meant to help prepare for Lent by stages. While ordinarily, the parish observes two liturgical calendars for the sake of celebrating both the Traditional Latin Mass and the modern English Mass; during these three Sundays, as we have done in past years, we will celebrate all Masses during Septuagesima in Latin according to the 1962 Missal.

PHILOSOPHY NIGHT – 7 PM. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH

Fr. Eric Andersen will lead a discussion on Josef Pieper’s book, The Concept of Sin, published by St. Augustine’s Press www.staugustine.net. Ages High School and up. No reading ahead is necessary. 7:00 - 8:30 pm in Carmody Hall.
