Families and the Gospel John 1:29-34
Can you say “I have testified Jesus is the son of God?”
If you aren’t talking about Jesus in your family, you aren’t testifying. If you are not walking your talk, your children will see your words as meaningless.
House Blessing Kits can be found in the Gathering Space which include the blessing and a piece of chalk. Holy water is sprinkled in each room of the house. You may already have a holy water bottle from last year or new ones are available. Begin a new family tradition!
Flu Season: Offering the Chalice and Shaking of Hands
Bishop Bartchak has asked that the Precious Blood of the Lord not be offered at Mass temporarily. Reception of Holy Communion on the hand is encouraged; however, reception on the tongue may not be denied. Also, the exchange of the sign of peace should avoid bodily contact. A reverent nod with eye contact and a smile will be the temporary practice. These norms are in effect throughout the winter months or until flu season is over.
Prayer Vigil for Sister Karen In support of Sister Karen, as she undergoes her surgery on Wednesday, January 29th, we will be holding a prayer vigil in the Sanctuary. If you would like to participate, please add your name to the schedule in the gathering space. Our goal is to have prayers occurring during all time slots, and there is no limit to the number of people who participate per slot. Mass will be at 8 am with the Vigil from 8:30 to 3:30 followed by the Rosary.
