  • Confessions will be heard starting at 9:15am and ending at 10:05am. 
  • The full Propers and Scripture Readings for Mass with a translation may be found here.
  • The Rosary will be prayed starting around 9:50am in the church. 
Parishioners are encouraged to please join in for coffee, refreshment, and fellowship in the social hall after the 10:15am Mass on Sundays. This is an informal time to speak with fellow parishioners and to build the life of the parish. Each week Father Pendergraft will teach for about 30 minutes after we have had something to eat. We have much more to learn about our Catholic faith and we need to be reminded of things that we already know. Guests are encouraged to come. 
Out of respect for the Eucharistic Presence of our Lord, you are asked to maintain an attitude of reverential quiet in both the Church and the vestibule. Conversation in the vestibule should only pertain to preparing to celebrate the Eucharist. Please use the hall for socializing. Thank you for your cooperation. 
On Monday, August 15th Holy Mass will be offered at 12:10pm (Low Mass) and at 7pm (High Mass) for the Feast of Our Lady's Assumption into Heaven. 
I continue to give thanks to God Almighty for the many blessings He continues to shower upon us. Thank you for all that you are doing to make our parish thrive once again and become that life giving fountain whose source is Christ Himself. 

Please notice that there will be a 7:45am Low Mass each Sunday to assist those who are not able to come to the 10:15am Missa Cantata. I still encourage those attending either Mass to return at 12:30pm for the parish catechism which focuses on praying the Mass better at present. 

The second collection on the first Sunday of each month is for flowers for the altar. Even just a little can help us beautify the throne of God on earth. 

In the coming weeks I would like to start an Altar Society for the work of decorating the altar, cleaning, ironing, and eventually sewing items for the altar. If you are interested in assisting with all or any of these, please look to the bulletin for the date of the first meeting. 

May God reward you and grant you a blessed week. 

-Fr. Gregory Pendergraft, FSSP
