Special Note from Fr. John: eGiving with Faith Direct

Many of you are aware and take advantage of the convenience of electronic giving to our parish and we are grateful for that. We believe it is time to upgrade to a more streamlined online provider for our eGiving needs through Faith Direct. For those of you who have yet to join us in giving online, I strongly encourage you to do so. Here’s why:

Faith Direct enables parishioners to make your Church contributions through either direct debit from your checking/savings account or through your credit/debit card. No more writing checks or searching for envelopes on the way out the door. Now you can apply the convenience of direct debit to your parish offerings in much the same way as you may now use it to make your mortgage, car or tuition payments.

Faith Direct also offers you personalized offertory cards to replace your envelopes for the collection basket.

Please join me in enrolling by responding to the mailing you will receive the last week of August or visit www.faithdirect.net to enroll securely online. Our parish code is KY904.

God Bless You!
Rev. John J. Stoltz

VBS 2018 Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus

Holy Week

 Holy Week is the heart of the liturgical year.  Official church rituals and other traditions observed during this week remember and make present the passing of Jesus from life, to death, and to new life.   The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery.

 

Holy Thursday: March 29, 7pm in the Church

Along with the rituals typically done in Mass, the priest will ceremonially wash the feet of several parishioners.  This is the action of the priest imitating Jesus’ Last Super action of humility and service, when he washed the disciples’ feet.

 

Good Friday Service: March 30, 7pm in the Church

On Good Friday, Mass is not celebrated.  We participate in the liturgy of the word with a reading of the passion narrative and psalms prophesying the suffering of Jesus.  The congregation will also venerate the cross, a slow procession of people to kiss a cross held by ministers.  The evening will end with a communion service with hosts consecrated the night before.

 

Easter Vigil: March 31, 8:30pm in the Church

The Easter Vigil begins and ends in darkness. It is a nocturnal vigil, retaining its ancient character of vigilance and expectation, as the Christian people await the Resurrection of the Lord during the night. Fire is blessed and the paschal candle is lighted to illumine the night so that all may hear the Easter proclamation and listen to the word of God proclaimed in the Scriptures. The Vigil is also when we welcome those who have been preparing for the sacraments of initiation.  This year we will celebrate the initiation of three young ladies into the Catholic Church: Kali Anderson/Sparrow, Sapphira Godbey, and Hailey Smith.

 

Easter Sunday Masses: April 1, 8am and 11am in the Church

The theme of Easter morning echoes that of the Easter Vigil: Jesus is raised from the dead and is Lord.  Those who believe and are baptized share in this resurrection to new life.

 

Lenten Confession Opportunities

In addition to every Saturday morning at 9am in the Chapel, Fr. John will hear confessions on four Wednesday evenings during Lent: February 21, March 7, 21, and 28 in the Church from 6-7pm.  As always, you may contact Fr. John to set up a private appointment if you have a conflict with these dates.
