All are invited to attend an Eucharistic Procession of Friday, Jan 22 in remembrance of the anniversary of Reo v. Wade. We will be processing from St Mary to the St John Bosco Catholic Center on College Avenue and then back to St Mary. We will also have Adoration until 8pm Friday night. Masks and social distancing are required in accordance with the Governor’s order, and since we will be processing on public sidewalks, we must respect the private property of our neighbors during the procession. All are welcome to attend and pray for respect for all human life.
This weekend’s bulletin is a reprinted from January 9-10 due to the cancelation of Masses due to COVID.
And there was room in the Inn. Merry Christmas! As the Christmas season draws to a close, I am so thankful for all who helped to make our Masses at the Expo Center possible and beautiful.
I am very proud of our parish, we did not have to turn anyone away from Christmas Mass. All who came to worship our Lord were able to find a “socially distanced” seat. Mary and Joseph could not find a room in Bethlehem, and while we would have preferred to have Mass in the church, the Expo Center was much warmer and more beautiful than the cave/stable that Mary and Joseph had. It took an extraordinary effort, and there are many folks to thank, please read the “Thank You’s” on page 8 & 9 of today’s bulletin.
Also, because of the pandemic, St Mary’s will not be providing a bus to the March for Life on January 29th, as is it better for families to travel individually. Please see marchforlife.org for more info on this year’s March. It is our hope that despite the challenges many will attend.
In order to witness to our love of LIFE, we will host a “Eucharistic Procession for Life” right here in Fredericksburg on Friday, January 22, the original date of Roe v. Wade. All are welcome to attend. Please see page 5 for more info.
P.S. A note of thanks for all your prayers for Fr. Koehr. He is feeling much better and his time in quarantine is drawing to a close – Thanks be to God!
St. Mary will be able to resume our normal Mass schedule this weekend.
We are able to resume Masses for Thursday Jan 14 and Friday Jan 15. We are awaiting further information before we can confirm our normal weekend schedule. Please check back for updates.
