Sunday Mass Dispensation Ends

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

Archbishop Rodi has discontinued all the Covid-19     Archdiocesan regulations as of May 29th.

Following the State and CDC regulations we should still be vigilant. Continued mask wearing is recommended especially since the church is such a small space. Also, because of the size of the church, I am not requiring that one half of the church be socially distant. But be vigilant and think of others.

Also, the archbishop has ENDED the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass effective Saturday, May 29, 2021.  This will mean more people coming to church to participate in this central act of our worship. So many people have stayed away even while longing to participate in the     Eucharist. As helpful as live-streaming is, it is not the same as being there in church celebrating with fellow Catholics.

   This is a good opportunity to think about the importance of the Eucharist in our lives. Christ is present in the bread and wine when it becomes the body and blood of Christ. We truly         receive Christ in our reception of Holy Communion. Christ is present in the Word of God read from Sacred Scripture.         Indeed, Jesus is the Word of God. Christ is truly present in the community gathered together: “where two or three are       gathered in my name, I am present in their midst.”


Fr. Dave.

 

  • Do not come to Church if you are feeling sick.
  • Sanitize your hands at entering and exiting the Church.
  • The use of face mask its HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

 

Let’s keep everyone safe.

AT THE SCHOOL OF MARY,
“WOMAN OF THE EUCHARIST”

53. If we wish to rediscover in all its richness the profound relationship between the Church and the Eucharist, we cannot neglect Mary, Mother and model of the Church. In my Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae, I pointed to the Blessed Virgin Mary as our teacher in contemplating Christ's face, and among the mysteries of light I included the institution of the Eucharist.102 Mary can guide us towards this most holy sacrament, because she herself has a profound relationship with it.

At first glance, the Gospel is silent on this subject. The account of the institution of the Eucharist on the night of Holy Thursday makes no mention of Mary. Yet we know that she was present among the Apostles who prayed “with one accord” (cf. Acts 1:14) in the first community which gathered after the Ascension in expectation of Pentecost. Certainly Mary must have been present at the Eucharistic celebrations of the first generation of Christians, who were devoted to “the breaking of bread” (Acts 2:42).

But in addition to her sharing in the Eucharistic banquet, an indirect picture of Mary's relationship with the Eucharist can be had, beginning with her interior disposition. Mary is a “woman of the Eucharist” in her whole life. The Church, which looks to Mary as a model, is also called to imitate her in her relationship with this most holy mystery.

54. Mysterium fidei! If the Eucharist is a mystery of faith which so greatly transcends our understanding as to call for sheer abandonment to the word of God, then there can be no one like Mary to act as our support and guide in acquiring this disposition. In repeating what Christ did at the Last Supper in obedience to his command: “Do this in memory of me!”, we also accept Mary's invitation to obey him without hesitation: “Do whatever he tells you” (Jn 2:5). With the same maternal concern which she showed at the wedding feast of Cana, Mary seems to say to us: “Do not waver; trust in the words of my Son. If he was able to change water into wine, he can also turn bread and wine into his body and blood, and through this mystery bestow on believers the living memorial of his passover, thus becoming the 'bread of life'”.

 


The Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Sunday June 06, 2021

This is the Year of the Eucharist and to celebrate this Feast we will have Exposition of the Holy Eucharist from 12:30pm to 6:00, if you have the time and desire to sit with Jesus for one hour please sign up! The form is available in the back of the Church.

 


ADORATION

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed every Wednesday after the 12:05pm Mass till 2:00p.m. These is a moment for individuals to pray with the Lord, to listen to the Lord, or simply come to offer a prayer or a rosary.

"Jesus waits for you in this sacrament of love."  —Pope Saint John Paul II

"The family idea is dear to God and to the Church ... I declare that I recognize the value of a family spirit, of a family working in the Church, of a family that with ardor will take these words from our dear Lord’s lips: ‘Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'"

 

- Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge,  Founder of St. Patrick School and 3rd Pastor of St. Patrick Church


 

 

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

                                

                                                                         JN 3:16-18
