Laudetur Iesus Christus! We have a few important weekend items to share, so please read carefully:
Today: Friday June 24 is the Feast of St. John the Baptist, a First Class Feast (no Latin Masses today though). After checking with Fr. Reid, all Friday penances are rescinded because this 1st Class Feast falls on a Friday. Thus for those who abstain from meat each Friday, you can enjoy a steak or a burger today. 🙂
Saturday: A historic day for the diocese, as St. Ann’s hosts Bishop Jugis for the 1st (ever?) Confirmation in the Extraordinary Form for the Diocese of Charlotte. Solemn High Mass begins at 11am and we encourage all to attend – this is a must see!
Sunday: Latin Mass coffee returns! Please join us after 12:30pm Mass for some coffee & donuts and mingle with your fellow parishioners and Latin Mass newcomers. We could also use a few extra hands helping to set up around noon (or clean up around 2:45). Please try to find us in the narthex or the kitchen before Mass.
