Here is general Mass information during bad weather:
Weekends: In general, barring severe weather, there will always
be weekend Masses. Use common sense. We have an obligation
to worship on the Lord’s Day. We do not have an obligation to put
ourselves or others in danger because of road conditions. We have
lots of folks living on side roads that may not be taken care of as
well as Hwy. 94. Use your good judgment.
Weekdays: The general rule is, if St. Vincent School is cancelled,
there is no Mass that day.
Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Forms of Prayer
It is important for us to include the 4 main forms of prayer into
with God. There is an acronym that can help with this: ACTS -
1) Adoration (acknowledgement that we are creatures of the
2) 2) Contrition (interior repentance)
3) 3) Thanksgiving (gratitude for blessings)
4) 4) Supplication (petition).
The Eucharist contains and expresses all the forms of prayer.
Do you cultivate
these forms of prayer in your prayer life? Have you ever
attended a life-changing
retreat, such as ACTS or Christ Renews His Parish?
Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – Expressions of Prayer
How do you pray? The Church has identified 3 expressions of
1) vocal prayer (associating the body with the interior prayer
of the heart)
2) meditation (engagement of thought, imagination, and
emotion to deepen our faith)
3) contemplation (a simple gaze upon God in silence and
The feature common to all of them is attention to the presence
of God in the heart. Do you have a favorite expression of
Fr. William DeBiase, O.F.M. will speak at all the Masses the weekend of
February 7th about a ministry providing direct relief to the poor throughout
Latin America and the Caribbean. Fr.DeBiase will share personal witness
about Food for the Poor’s mission to care for the destitute as a means of
living out the Gospel mandate to love one another.
Fr. DeBiase was ordained in 1966 for the Franciscan Order. He served as
a missionary in Japan for over 20 years, worked with St. Mother Teresa of
Calcutta, and served with the Franciscans in Jerusalem. Besides
preaching on behalf of Food for the Poor, Fr. Bill serves at St. Francis Inn, a
soup kitchen, in the inner city of Philadelphia.
Please welcome him. There will be NO collection, but information should
you like to contribute to their ministry. We’ve had a number of missionaries
who were hard to understand. Well, Fr. Bill comes with a definite accent:
from Brooklyn, New York! I spoke with him over the phone and he sounds
delightful. Extend to him some of our Dutzow and Augusta hospitality!
No, our 8th graders didn’t meet the pope. This was set up in the crypt church area of the National
Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Our students (and their adult chaperones) had a full 4 days
that was both informative and inspiring.
THANK YOU to all who supported their fundraising efforts to make this an excellent trip for them. As all
the youth were told at the March for Life Rally before the march, THEY are the LIFE GENERATION.
Hopefully what they experienced here will stay with them into adulthood as they work and vote on life
