Sacred Heart Bulletin - December 2, 2018

To you, I lift up my soul, O my God.  In you, I have trusted; let me not be put to shame, nor let my enemies exult over me and let none who hope in you be put to shame.  cf. Psalm 25 (24):1-3.

 

DAILY MASS SCHEDULE:  Wednesday at 12:00 p.m.


AS YOU ARE ENTERING THE CHURCH, PLEASE BE AS QUIET AS POSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO ARE PRAYING OR MEDIATING IN PREPARATION FOR THE SUNDAY MASS.

 

This year, the Feast Day for the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary falls on Saturday, December 8, and is a Holy Day of Obligation.  Fr. Fred will celebrate a Vigil Mass for the Immaculate Conception this Friday, December 7, 6:00 p.m. at Sacred Heart.​  This is the only Mass for this Feast that will be celebrated in our Parish.

On Wednesday, December 12, 6:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart a special Mass will be celebrated in Spanish for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Following today’s Mass, there will be a potluck lunch in the Social Hall downstairs.  Please plan to stay for good food and fellowship.

At present, we have approximately 20 children and youth in our Hispanic community who are preparing to celebrate their First Communions later next year.  Please keep these students, their families, and their teachers in your prayers.

Fr. Frank Reese was laid to rest this past Thursday in Baltimore.  Please continue to remember him and his family and friends in your prayers.

Given that we have already experienced a bit of winter weather, it is not too early to address how to learn if a Mass is being canceled due to hazardous conditions.   If we experience hazardous winter weather conditions in Mars Hill and/or Burnsville that will result in cancellations of weekend Masses, there are multiple ways to learn about what is being canceled:  (1) check closures on WLOS-13, (2) emails will be sent to all for whom we have email addresses, (3) notices will be placed on the Parish website (standrew-sacredheart.org), and (4) a message will be placed on the Parish Office telephone (828 698-3719).  Please remember that if there are no notices posted, that means Masses will be celebrated as scheduled.

PLEASE WISH “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to Stas Barlowski, December 9; Sophia Kragten, December 27; Kathleen Holstein, December 27.
