Trinity Sunday

May 18, 2008 – Trinity Sunday
Today is Trinity Sunday with the Commemoration and Last Gospel of Pentecost I. The Blessing of Expectant Mothers is available at the communion rail after all Masses. Today is the last day on which to fulfill your Easter Duty of a worthy Holy Communion. Those who neglect this duty are no longer Catholics in good standing and sin mortally. Confessions will be heard this morning before and during all Masses. Vespers are at 4:45 and are followed by Benediction and May Devotions.

Corpus Christi
On Thursday of this week we celebrate the great feast of Corpus Christi with All Day Adoration of the Most Blessed Scrament beginning with 8:45 AM Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, High Mass and a little Procession at 11:25 AM followed by further Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament All Day. Vespers are at 2:30 PM. The day concludes at 5:00 PM with Mass and Benediction.

Next Sunday
Set your missal: Low Masses: Sunday Within the Octave of Corpus Christi with the commemorations of the Octave and St. Gregory VII, W. Preface of the Nativity. High Mass: Corpus Christi, with the commemoration of the Sunday Within the Octave. Proper Last Gospel: Sunday within the Octave of Corpus Christi. Preface of the Nativity. If you are attending the 11:30 AM Mass, come early (approximately 10:30 AM) for the outdoor Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, and to accompany the Holy Eucharist in Procession. First Holy Communion takes place at the High Mass. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament Continues All Afternoon. Plan to spend some time in the afternoon visiting Our Lord. We need adorers. A visit to Our Lord outside of the Mass is an act of love. Members of the Rosary Confraternity are kindly asked to take turns adoring the Blessed Sacrament from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. A Holy Hour will be conducted at 3:00 PM. The day concludes with Vespers and the final Benediction of the day at 4:45 PM.

The Four Musketeers Do it Again!
Again this year we are very proud of our high school boys who have brought back trophies for finishing in first place in the SOHSFA League as well as for their first place finish in tournament competition. Each boy was also awarded a gold medal for his excellent play. They are on display in the vestibule. Fencing is an excellent sport for young men, helping them to develop confidence, agility and coordination. This is just one example of the fine Catholic education we offer our young people in our school. Thank you for your support!
