My Dear Parishioners,
Blessings from our Lord be with you. I would like to invite everyone to view our new adoration chapel after this weekend’s Masses. The chapel is located near the restroom area. This chapel will be blessed at the 5:30pm Mass on Tuesday, March 5th, followed by adoration hours. This chapel has its own outside door with an entry code to enter the chapel. The code will be given to adorers on the weekend of March 2nd. By the entry door is a new parking lot for adorers. At night, the outside light will light up the parking lot area and a special motion sensor light will turn on when someone is near, or a vehicle is pulling up. This chapel is like a mini-church because of the many religious images, Stations of the Cross, and the holy relics of many saints. This chapel is a place of worship to our Lord (at Tuesday & Thursday 5:30pm Mass), a place of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament (adoration), and prayers to the Holy Family, the angels and saints. I hope everyone will enjoy our beautiful chapel and be true Catholics, Fr. Hien
Extra-Ordinary Eucharistic Minister and Lector Training: I would like to invite our current lectors and Eucharistic ministers and any adult who is a practicing Catholic who has been confirmed, including high school and collage-aged parishioners, to attend my training on Saturday, March 9th at 10 am in our church. Please know that these ministries are so important and special that everyone must be trained. Eucharistic Ministers, once you’re trained, your names will be sent to our bishop for approval and you will be certified for the next five years. Lectors, you will have the honor of proclaiming the word of God at Holy Mass. I am looking forward to training you and helping you to love and to serve our Lord in His Holy Church. I promise you that I will get everyone trained within one hour, unless you have too many questions. For more details, please contact Sandy or Fr. Hien
