Parish Mission Set for Nov. 30 - Dec. 4
St. Mary’s is presenting a mission entitled “To Serve is to Reign” beginning this evening Sunday, November 30.
The mission will be presented over five consecutive days in St. Mary’s Church at 6:30 p.m. each evening from Sunday, through Thursday, December 4. The presentation will last for approximately 45 minutes and be followed by a 15-minute Benediction prayer service.
Confession will be available before each session from 5:30 p.m. until 6:15 p.m. and will also be available after each evening’s presentation with the exception of Thursday when a reception will be held in the Holy Family Center. Please take advantage of these reconciliation opportunities this week as no other times are scheduled before Christmas with the exception of the normal Saturday times.
During the presentations, a special children’s liturgy will be available for kindergarten through second grade and families with toddlers will have a space available as well. Third grade students and above should attend with their family.
Presentations on the theme will also take place at the 7:30 a.m. Mass on Monday and noon Mass on Tuesday.
For our parish mission, St. Mary’s has invited a representative from an order of priests called the Fathers of Mercy, Father Joseph Aytona.
