The Lord shows great concern for the bodily and spiritual welfare of the sick and commands his followers to do the same. In our Catholic tradition the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is offered to those whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age. This sacrament gives the grace of the Holy Spirit to those who are sick. Anointing will take place at the Hospital on Wednesday, April 23, at Three Links on Friday, April 25, at the 8 AM Mass Sunday, April 27, and at the Northfield Retirement Center on Wednesday, May 7.
During the Sunday morning Mass, there will be a blessing of prayer shawls and prayer shawl ministers. These prayerful ministers create a shawl, that is a gift of comfort and peace for those receiving, a reminder of the loving presence of God. You are welcome to bring your prayer shawls from home.
Volunteers—junior and sophomore students and parents—are needed to assist with the Senior Mass & Breakfast, Sunday, May 18, at 8 AM. Sophomores and parents set up the social hall and make boutonnieres/corsages on Saturday night, May 17. Juniors and parents serve breakfast and clean up after the event. Faith Formation Committee prepares the breakfast, sends out invitations, and assists with Mass duties. With your kind and generous help, our event to honor our high school seniors will be a wonderful blessing. Please call the parish office to volunteer, 507-645-8816.
