Mass times, Gala update, and more!
June 6th 2020
Ember Saturday in the Pentecost Octave
Dear Faithful and Friends of St. Joseph Shrine,
It has now been multiple weeks since we have tripled our daily Mass schedule and doubled our Sunday schedule, souls continue to flock to the Sacraments! Deo gratias! Tomorrow, June 7th, Sunday Masses will be at 7am, 9am, 11am, and 1pm.
This coming week, however, due to the Canons' Annual Priest Retreat, please note that from Monday, June 8th- Friday June 12th there will be one daily Mass at Noon each day. We thank our good friend, Fr. Bustamante, for generously providing the Shrine with a daily Mass in our brief absence. We will be back for the usual 9am Saturday Mass.
Next Sunday, June 14th, for the External Solemnity of Corpus Christi the
Mass times will be 7am, 9am, 11am, followed by a grand outdoor procession with the Blessed Sacrament. Those who made their 1st Communion this year are encouraged to wear their 1st Communion outfits again and the young girls will be in charge of preceding the Blessed Sacrament with flower petals.
As for our 4th Annual Legacy Gala that we have postponed and rescheduled numerous times (the latest hopeful date being June 18th), it is now officially cancelled as a meal & gathering, but transposed to an Online Giving Gala toward the end of the month. There will be more information after the Canons' Priest Retreat. This will also allow me to communicate to you more extensively our joyful updates regarding the restoration process, the upcoming stonework project, and the vision leading us to the 150th Anniversary of our church's consecration in 2023.
Our Shrine Family has experienced great growth in the past few months (including five adult Confirmations yesterday). Let us rejoice in the Divine doings of Providence and work earnestly to do our part in giving Glory to God and obtaining the Salvation of Souls.
Thank you for your dedication! Please keep Canon Sequeira and me in your prayers especially during our retreat. May we become holy priests and serve you better.
In Christo Rege,
Canon Stein, Rector
