Epiphany II

January 14, 2007 – Epiphany II – St. Hilary, BCD – St. Felix, PrM

The Blessing of Religious Articles follows all Masses. Children’s Catechism classes resume today following the High Mass. Vespers and Benediction are at 4:45 PM.

Alter Christus

Many thanks to those who contributed to the “little church” last Sunday. The Alter Christus Confraternity received $48.00 for Masses to help support priests and their sanctification. Many, many thanks for the generous 2nd collection for our Seminary Support last Sunday: $1,764.00!

Chair of Unity Octave

Our annual devotion for the conversion of different non-Catholic groups begins this Thursday after the 11:30 AM Mass. Please join us in fervent prayer!

Pope St. Pius X sanctioned and blessed the Chair of Unity Octave. His Holiness, Pope Benedict XV extended its observance to the Universal Church, highly enriching it with indulgences.

The Chair of Unity Octave has accomplished an immense good in awakening Catholics to a mission consciousness, and to the need of interesting themselves in the conversion of those without the fold. When the enemies of Christ seem to be triumphing as never before, how great is our obligation to pour forth fervent prayer for the millions who wander in darkness. Let’s make this year’s Octave a week of grace!

An indulgence of 300 days during the octave of prayers for the unity of the Church from the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter at Rome (Jan. 18) to the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul (Jan. 25). A plenary indulgence on the usual conditions at the end of the exercise.

Infant of Prague

Our novena in honor of the Divine Infant continues this Friday at 5:35 PM. Come with confidence to honor our loving little King.
