June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

First Friday 7PM Mass in Honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and in Spiritual Reparation: June 2nd

In addition to the 9am daily Mass, there will be a 7pm Mass in the lower church in honor of our Lord’s Most Sacred Heart, especially for the reparation of sins and sacrileges that so offend our heavenly Father; for our sins; the sins and failures of Church leadership; and for sins of the world. Following the Mass, we will pray the litany to Our Lord’s Most Sacred Heart.

And remember: every Friday we have Eucharistic Adoration in the lower chapel beginning after 9am Mass and ending at 12pm.

The Collaborative is called off

The collaborative that we’ve been planning and praying for has been called off. Surprisingly, the Archdiocese has told us there will not be a collaborative. St. Cecilia’s will have it’s own pastor, Fr. Ren Tocci, and Fr. Cannon will continue at St. John’s.

Let us keep praying for our faithful pastor as he continues to give us the Sacraments. Also, we pray for Fr. Cornell as he retires, and for Fr. Tocci as he assumes responsibility as St. Cecilia’s new pastor. 

May God give our Archdiocese many holy priests.
