Confessions will be heard before and during all Morning Masses
The Blessing of Children and the dedication to their Guardian Angel takes place today after all Masses.
Fifth Sunday of the Month. Vespers and Benediction at 1:10 PM.

October Devotions
The October Devotions (Rosary, Litany and Prayer to St. Joseph) are recited every school day at 3:10 PM. Every Wednesday the Rosary is recited before the Blessed Sacrament Exposed at 3:00 PM, with Benediction and Holy Communion at approximately 3:30 PM. Come join our children in prayer!

Catholic Men & Boys
For over five years, now, it has been our policy that Catholic men and boys are to wear a suit coat or jacket, and a tie, to Sunday Mass. This old Catholic custom both expresses and teaches respect for God’s Day and House and Sacrifice. There always are a few who take a stand “on principle” to appear at Sunday Mass in very casual or even sloppy dress. They will be asked to appear somewhere else if they refuse to follow this reasonable little rule. “Deo Optimi Maxima–To God the Greatest Our Best”. –Bishop Dolan
