Advent update; Christmas Midnight Mass

Laudetur Iesus Christus and Blessed Advent greetings! We now enter this time of anticipation, and as Fr. Reid noted today, let is also be a time of preparation, to pray more and make sacrifices in order to grow on holiness.  Thankfully December will offer many opportunities for us to grow, and as such, we post our Advent related schedule:

Prayers requested by Father Reid:

  1. Join in praying the 54 Day Rosary novena for our nation and new president. Begins today Mon. Nov 28, ends Inauguration Day, Jan 20th.
  2. Parish Novena to the Immaculate Heart. Begins Wed. November 30th and ends Thursday December 8th. The novena prayer is attached.

Thursday December 8th – Feast of the Immaculate Conception: 7pm High Mass. A Holy Day of Obligation and the United States’ patronal feast day. After Mass Fr. Reid will consecrate the parish to the Immaculate Heart. Immediately after the consecration will be Eucharistic Adoration until midnight for an end to abortion. Please make plans to stay and pray.

Saturday December 17: Annual Rorate Mass, 6:30am High Latin Mass by Candlelight; St. Ann’s – it’s a beautiful Mass at dawn which words can’t describe. Please come if you haven’t attended before.

Sunday December 18th: Annual blessing of religious gifts after 12:30pm Latin Mass. Please bring any religious items you need blessed prior to Mass and leave them on the table in the narthex. Father will bless them immediately after Mass (no exceptions or delays).

Christmas Midnight Mass: Deo Gratis & Gaudete! We are pleased to announce that out of his generosity Father Reid granted the CLMC’s request to offer CHRISTMAS MIDNIGHT LATIN MASS for the faithful at St. Ann’s!

This replaces the Christmas Eve Latin Mass (which becomes Novus Ordo) and Midnight Mass will be the ONLY LATIN MASS ON SUNDAY DEC 25th (no 12:30pm).  We are grateful to Father for meeting the desires of the Latin Mass faithful.

Please offer a few Hail Mary’s in thanksgiving for Fr. Reid who attends to the needs of all his parishioners (a tough job!).
