My Beloved Parishioners,
I would like to invite you to visit our new chapel and to join me in the blessing of it and the new large image of the Last Supper in our gathering area at 5:30pm on Tuesday, March 5th, followed by Holy Mass and adoration hours. Our chapel is beautiful because of the many holy images, Stations of the Cross, and the relics of saints on the altar. This chapel is a place of worship for Holy Masses on Tuesdays & Thursdays to save energy/wear & tear on the big church. It’s also a place of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament (adoration), and prayers to the Holy Family, the angels and saints. Everyone is invited to be with Jesus and to be blessed by God. Also, all lights in the chapel are LED. The outside, the hall way and the restrooms lights are operated by sensors (automatically turn on when someone is around). If you need the new code for the chapel, please call the office. Please be true Catholics with your worship & adoration to our Lord, by praying to Mother Mary and by imitating all saints and angels.
40 Days of Lent: Starts Wednesday, March 6th with Holy Masses at 8am, 12noon and 6:30pm. Everyone is invited to attend Holy Mass and to receive ashes. On Ash Wednesday, please eat only one full meal and two lesser meals, without meat. Fridays during Lent, no meat please. Put many reminder notes at home/work place to help you remember.
Stations of the Cross on Fridays in Church: Every Friday at 2:30pm, to be led by our All Saints students when school is in session. On March 8thand 22nd, at 5pm, to be led by our Knights of Columbus and on March 15th by the Altar Society. Also, every Friday during Lent at 5:30pm in Vietnamese, to be led by the Vietnamese prayer group. Everyone is invited to join us at the above times but if you can’t, please make every effort to pray the Stations of Cross privately with your family in church or at home or at work. God knows your love for Him, Fr. Hien
