Tom.  If you would like a monthly visit from a Visitation Ministry team, or know someone we should visit, send an email.
THE SUNDAY READINGS: Read, discuss and pray over next Sunday’s readings in a weekly gathering at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays in the Gathering Space.  It’s a great way to anticipate hearing the readings proclaimed at Mass and to gain a deeper awareness into the meaning and power of God’s word.  All are welcome!

THE SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION is now celebrated in the new Reconciliation Room, what was the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.  Penitents may sit face-to-face or behind a screen.  An examination of conscience is available to prepare for celebrating the sacrament just outside the Reconciliation Room. The sacrament is celebrated at 9 a.m. Saturdays.
Celebrating Mass is a collaborative venture — we need people to assist with the various and necessary roles.  As we move through the fall, we hope to bring new and more people to the essential ministries of Mass.  All of them.  Let’s consider this week the ministry of Server.  This is a ministry to which children, teens and adults are invited, including parents and children.  Send an email to Fr. Tom to learn more.
