Healing Mass, Tuesday, March 16 

We will offer a Healing Mass (for the family tree) on Tuesday, March 16.  We will begin with the Rosary at 6:15 p.m.  Father Michael will begin a talk about healing at 6:40, followed by the Mass, close to 7:30.

Important Note: This will be adult material.  Everyone in attendance should be at least 16.  Best practices to prepare for this night:

(1) Go to Confession soon

(2) Think about negative patterns of vice in your family tree that need to be healed (e.g., fear, anxiety, divorce, etc.)

(3) Watch Fr. Ripperger’s video on Generational Spirits, part 1

Visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpJgVAs02Dc

Or do a search: “Ripperger generational spirits youtube.”

There will be more Healing Masses coming. We will continue to teach new material and answer questions.

Mass: Solemnity of St. Joseph, Friday, March 19

As you know, this is the Year of St. Joseph.  You have a chance to invite him to become a close friend and intercessor for you. 

You also have a chance to gain a plenary indulgence on Friday, March 19: 

Schedule:

Confession, 5:00 p.m.

English Mass, 6:00 p.m.

Stations of the Cross, 7:00 p.m.  Trifecta!

Conditions for a Plenary Indulgence:

(1) Free of attachment to sin on that day

(2) Confession

(3) Attend Mass and receive the Eucharist

(4) Pray for the divinely inspired intentions of Pope Francis

Sign Up for Easter Masses

Because we anticipate that we will have fairly full Masses at Easter, we will use Signup Genius just like we did around Christmas. Expect about 40 families to sign up for the main church and 15 families to sign up for overflow in St. Michael’s Hall to watch the Mass via livestream video. Sign-ups should begin in about two weeks. We will have only four Masses total—one on the Vigil, and three on Easter    Sunday.

Good Video Summary of How Lies are Spread

If I had kids, I would talk about a few tough issues around the dinner table in order to protect them from evil influences. This video talks about how evil comes through education, news, entertainment, politics, and courts. All of these avenues are supposed to present the truth in order to lead us to happiness with God. I watch videos to learn, but I don’t always endorse everything put out by certain organizations. Critical thinking skills are needed for all of us. We don’t believe everything we hear from the news. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a6_m1hsqmo

Consecration to St. Joseph Books

Some of you picked up a Consecration book last weekend after Mass. We discovered that a few of them were defective. You can check your book by looking on page 13. It should read “Day One.” If you have a defective book, please bring it in and we will give you a good copy.

Peace of Christ, 

Fr. Michael
