Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Laudetur Iesus Christus! We have a major feast day (1st Class) this Friday, the Feast of the Sacred Heart, and by providence this year it falls on First Friday. As Fr. Reid noted in the bulletin, since First Friday traditions are rooted in the Sacred Heart, it’s an splendid day to attend Mass. Thankfully, Fr. Reid will offer a First Friday Latin Mass at 7am Friday morning at St. Ann.  For more information about the Sacred Heart devotions and the promises made to those who make the 9 consecutive First Fridays, please read here.

Mini-murals: Speaking of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, if you haven’t seen the new proposed mini-murals that will go over the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Our Lady’s statues, we invite you to take a look and consider financially supporting this effort to glorify God at our parish. You can view them here:


Young adult lunch: Lastly, for young adults in their 20s & 30s, the Latin Mass young adult lunch group will meet this Sunday after 12:30pm Mass. The group will meet in the narthex after Mass and head to a local restaurant for lunch and fellowship. The topic of discussion will be the Benedict Option: could it happen in Charlotte? Friends welcome.
