The Ascension of Our Lord (Mother’s Day)

Parish message of the week,

  1. Today we will celebrate the Solemnity of the Ascension. It is also the celebration for World Communications Day. A second collection will be taken up at all Masses for the Social Communications works of the diocese after communion.
  2. We extend our heartfelt greetings and prayers for all Mothers today on this Mothers’ Day. A special small gift will be distributed after the mass today for the mothers of our community who are here.
  3. Next Sunday is the Solemnity of Pentecost, and we will be celebrating the Confirmation of some 30 members of our community at the 12:30 p.m. Mass.
  4. Applications for a new class for adults seeking to be baptized into the Catholic Church or who are baptized Christians but wish to become Catholics will be available starting next Sunday, 20 May 2018. The class is for adults over the age of 20, and will have a limited number accepted to the class because of space. The classes will be held on Friday evenings starting 31st August 2018. The group already completing their first year of classes will continue meeting on Thursdays for their second year also.
  5. We wish to alert all in our community that the parish will be having a Blood Drive on Sunday, June 3rd both before and after all the Masses. Please consider volunteering to donate blood for this worthy cause.
