From Our Pastor
Just renewing the invitation to the healing Mass and prayers this coming Friday August 10th @ 7pm, with the help of the Spanish Prayer Group, we will have a Misa de Sanacion (Healing Mass) at 7 pm in the Church. The Mass will be a straightforward daily Mass.
One parishioner said to me last weekend, “this is too late for me to go out. Can’t we have an anointing Mass at a better hour?” Yes we can (stay tuned for announcements of a date for that)! And to be clear, this coming Friday, the plan is not to offer the sacrament of anointing of the sick. It is to pray to pray over and bless anyone who wants to come forward to ask Jesus for healing. I will try to stay and pray over all folks who come and wait for the prayers.
Since all healing comes from Jesus, we will ask Him directly as the prayers and blessing will be given at the foot of the altar before the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Mass will be in Bi-lingual, based on how many Hispanos & Anglos come, but all are invited since the prayers for healing / blessing can be in either Spanish or English.
Also this weekend is the Mary’s Shelter Soiree! This apostolate is one of the most amazing apostolates of women (and some men too) helping mother’s in need have a place and support when pregnant. This apostolate changes lives for the better. Thank you to the amazing women (mostly from our parish – pat ourselves on the back) who are the living, hands, feet, and loving heart of Our Lord!
