PRISON VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Thank you for your support as we continue to implement our new curriculum, Forming Disciples.
Encountering Christ in the prisoner is a profound way to experience God’s love and presence. Chaplain Kesterson, M.Div., will train, support and assist interested volunteers. Please call 716-870-6932, or e-mail Kesterson.firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers could teach, help with music at Mass, participate on a retreat team, craft with women (knit/crochet/make rosaries), and/or pray the rosary and divine chaplet. Any time commitment will be helpful! Thank you, Chaplain C. Kesterson, M.Div.
2019 MASS INTENTION GUIDELINES
The practice of requesting a Mass to be offered for loved ones, living or deceased is a beautiful part of our Catholic tradition. At Holy Family Parish, there are many requests for scheduling Mass Intentions. As a way to allow as many of our parishioners as possible to schedule Masses, as well as to remember the recently departed, the following new policies are being implemented.
Mass Intentions for 2019 will be accepted beginning Nov. 1, 2018. We will accept no more than 4 intentions per registered household, of which 2 may be scheduled for a weekend Mass. To reserve a Mass, the $15. stipend must accompany the request. Mass intentions will be scheduled as close to the requested date/time as possible. All Mass Intentions will need to be scheduled each year through the Parish Office, as we will no longer accept annual requests or pre-payments for years in advance. Copies of the Guidelines and Mass Request Forms are at the entrances of Church or can be picked up at the parish office.
Liturgical Publications Inc (LPi), the company which prints and services our weekly bulletin, will have Steve Malara, our advertising representative, visiting our office in the next few weeks to service our bulletin.
