Pastor’s Column


If the priest is visiting your home to bring you the Sacraments, every effort should be made to tidy the home in preparation of receiving its divine guest. Televisions and radios should be turned off. A horizontal surface should be cleared near the sick person, and two lit candles and a crucifix placed upon it. A little glass of water for the ablutions is also helpful.

When the priest arrives, someone should meet him at the door with one of the lit candles. After genuflecting, he leads the priest to the room of the sick person, where everyone waits quietly. Upon the arrival of the Blessed Sacrament, everyone kneels. If the sick desires Confession, everyone rises and genuflects, then departs to give the person privacy. The priest will call everyone back in for the administration of the other Sacraments. Upon returning, everyone kneels again until the sick person has received Our Lord.

Important! Next Monday & Tuesday (October 9 & 10), we will be re-sealing and re-striping the parking lot. This means the parking lot will be closed for those two weekdays, re-opening on Wednesday, October 11. Those attending Mass or other parish events those two days should access the church from the 28th Avenue vestibule entrance. The gates there will be open to facilitate that.
