The old, majestic Assumption chasuble, reserved for use primarily on Assumption Day, awaits the priest who will wear it at the 9:30am Mass. It was used at all four Masses by the main celebrant of the 6:30am, 9:30am, Noon, and 7:00pm Mass
Another priest of Opus Angelorum, wearing the Assumption chasuble, waits with altar boys at the opening to the grotto cemetery for the Noon Mass to begin. Standing next to him is Fr. Perrone. Petitions people brought with them, to be included in the evening Mass, were dropped into the box to the right of the priest.
One of our Assumption Grotto Knights of Columbus, Lenny, holds the microphone for a little girl during the Living Rosary in the early afternoon. It took place during adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, seen in the background within the grotto sanctuary. This style of Living Rosary is where people volunteer one-by-one (rotating) to recite the first half of each Hail Mary while those in attendance pray the other half.
Fr. Perrone heads back to the grotto sanctuary following the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.
Grotto's pastor, Fr. Eduard Perrone, during Benediction following Anointing of the Sick in the afternoon. The look of absolute serenity on his face as he holds Our Lord in the monstrance gives witness to the Real Presence.
I must get to work now so that I can bring you more.
Te Deum Laudamus! Home
