Little Red Wagon Sunday/ SICM collection: Sunday May 9th. See details below.
May Crowning of the Virgin Mary: Our Mass on May 9th will conclude with a special devotion to Our Lady in our garden. The “May Crowning” is a traditional Catholic ritual that occurs in the month of May and it recognizes Mary as Queen of heaven and earth. Mary consented to be the Mother of God. In this way she won the “crown of righteousness” (II Tim 4:8), the “crown of life” (Jas 1:12; Rev 2:10), the “crown of glory” (I Pet 5:4) that is promised to those who follow Christ.
Rogation Day Blessing Following our Celtic Mass on May 9th, we will say a special blessing for our gardens.
Ascension Day: We will celebrate the Feast of the Ascension on Thursday May 13 at 7p.m. with a Mass. The Feast of the Ascension commemorates 40 days after the Resurrection when Christ ascended into Heaven in the sight of his disciples.
Pentecost: Join us on Sunday May 23 at 10 am for a celebration of the Feast of Pentecost, also known as Whitsunday. On Pentecost the Holy Spirit descended with power upon the Church empowering us to reach the world with the Gospel. On this Sunday will also be celebrating the baptism of young Piper Wisenburn, daughter of Nathaniel Wisenburn and Angela Marion.
Zoom Coffee Hour: Join us for a time of online fellowship every Sunday after Mass at 12:00 p.m.
