Sunday, February 2 is Candlemas Day. If you have candles that you would like blessed, bring them to church for our Mass. On this weekend, we will be blessing the candles used at our various liturgies here at Holy Cross. We will have “Candles for the home” (51% beeswax) available for a donation of $3.00 for a boxed set of 2.
Monday, February 3 is the Feast of Saint Blaise. There will be a general blessing of throats at all weekend Masses on February 1 and 2.
We are very short on personnel, so if you enjoy the bells, please consider joining us. Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM. While helpful, you do not need to read music to play.
If interested, please contact our director, Alessio Giacabone at Alegiacobone@gmail.com. Or stop by a rehearsal to “meet” the bells up close and personal.
Remember… “Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.”
The leadership of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas challenged its members and associates to do 175 works of Mercy to give special
meaning to the 175th Anniversary of the arrival of the Sisters of Mercy in the United States. In response to this challenge, Sr. Kathy published a book of pictures and reflections to inspire all to a deeper commitment to our stewardship of God’s creation.
They are available to purchase in the office for $13.
