Your pastor and parish staff hope this new schedule does not cause undue inconvenience to parishioners, and that it will help animate the community to participate more actively at the Sunday liturgies. If refinements to the schedule need to be made in the future, you can work with your parish staff to make adjustments after you have had time to get used to these few changes. Let’s test this new schedule for a year to see if it produces good fruit for the community. Fr John E Boll, Administrator Pro-Tem
OCTOBER, the MONTH OF THE HOLY ROSARY
Soon it will be that time when we are reminded of the importance of uniting our prayers with the Mother of God and conforming ourselves to Christ as revealed in the mysteries of His life. We grow in our appreciation of Christ through meditating on these mysteries. We do, however, need to be careful that our prayer does not become wordy and mechanical. Pope Paul VI said “Without contemplation, the Rosary is a body without a soul.” therosary3.com is a scriptural Rosary. Whether you are already in the habit of praying the Rosary and want to renew the spirit of your prayer or whether you are new to the Rosary and want to learn how to quieten your mind and heart, therosary3.com will help you enter more deeply into the Mysteries of Christ. Come then, come to a quiet place within … visit therosary3.com.
