The regularly scheduled social for the first Sunday in November has been moved a week earlier to October 27 for Bishop Gainer’s Confirmation Mass. Please join us after Mass in the Msgr. Thomas H. Smith Social Hall. There will be no social in November.
Books at the Entrance to the Church
On the table when you enter the church, you see three different books: the red Latin-English Missal, the Adoremus hymnal, and the Parish Book of Chant (PBC). If you would like to sing along with the choir during Mass, the guide to the numbers on the hymnal boards are as follows: numbers alone give the hymn number from the Adoremus hymnal. The Mass number and Credo number (given in Roman numerals) are taken from the PBC. Just go to the table of contents in the PBC, find the Mass and Credo listed, and it will direct you to the correct page. If the board lists a hymn number preceded by PBC, it is found in the PBC. The PBC also contains the order of the Mass. The Extraordinary Form starts with the Asperges Me on page 34.
Weekday Low Mass
This week there will be Weekday Low Mass on Wednesday at 8 a.m.
Day of Recollection
All women ages 18 and up, married or unmarried, are invited to join us THIS SATURDAY, October 26th, for a Day of Recollection with Fr. Joseph Tuscan. Please see tomorrow’s newsletter for the registration link.
Please join us at 2 p.m. next Sunday for the Pontifical Mass with Bishop Gainer, followed by a potluck reception in the social hall. In honor of His Excellency’s visit, we are raising funds to purchase a Cappello Romano/saturno. We hope to raise $350 to cover the expense of this purchase. If you would like to donate, please bring your contribution to the Bishop’s social following Mass next Sunday. There will be a basket for donations.
