As mentioned in my article last week, the Solemnity of the Assumption is coming up this Monday, August 15. This is NOT a holy day of obligation this year. However, it is a special feast day, and it is the patronal feast of Assumption Parish in Mt. Healthy, a parish in our family. While we will celebrate that feast at St. Bartholomew at the usual 8:00AM Monday Mass time, there will be a special celebration at Assumption Church at 8:30AM on that day, with music and with coffee and donuts or coffee cake afterward in the Providence Room, their parish hall. Parishioners from all parishes are welcome.
FEAST OF ST. BARTHOMEW, APOSTLE, WEDNEDAY, AUGUST 24, 8:00AM
The plan is to have music and to have coffee and donuts or coffee cake in the narthex.
PROCEDURES FOR THOSE WHO BRING COMMUNION TO THE SICK
At this past Sunday’s Masses, I mentioned that we would be changing the procedures for those who bring the Eucharist to the sick. The procedures will change for both Sunday and weekday Masses. More info to come. For now, our present procedures will stay.
