A Note From Father Peter

Dear Parishioners,
You have expressed to me multiple times your desire to have more opportunities for personal prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament, and I praise God for this holy desire. I also wish to be more available to celebrating Masses to the brothers and sisters in nursing homes. Together with Deacon Michael and Mrs. Lynn Malson, our volunteer coordinator of homebound ministry, we will be studying more opportunities in that sense. To this end, starting September 1st, on a four-month trial basis, we will be implementing the following changes:

  • Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will be offered the first Friday of each month, immediately following the 8:30 a.m. Mass. Please join us for an hour of silent prayer time
    9 a.m.-10 a.m.
  • Weekly Adoration will be offered by Deacon Michael and myself every Wednesday morning,
    7 a.m.-8 a.m. This is to accommodate working schedules and allow those who are seeking daily Mass to make it in time to one of the neighboring parishes.
  • So far, every Wednesday I have alternated Mass celebration at the Parish and nursing homes. Consistency is important ,and to this end and the other reasons I indicated above, Mass on Wednesdays will be available only at nursing homes, starting in September.
    Were we to have another priest serving at the Parish, I would not hesitate to resume Masses at the Parish every Wednesday. 

Please let me know if you have any concerns with these changes. I believe it is important for us to have an open communication and dialogue. It was prayer, discernment and consultations that led me to try this for the next four months. I believe that in doing so, I respond to what I have heard from those who have reached out to me and expressed their spiritual needs and desires for our Parish. 

I wish you a blessed week!

 

In Christ,

Fr. Peter Damian
