Annual Parish Mission - Two Days Left

This is a reminder that there are two days left to the annual parish mission, which is being conducted by the Priests of Opus Angelorum who work out of our parish. Even if you can only make it for a portion of one of these two days, just do it!!!

On the first evening, Fr. Matthew spoke about silence and the need for it in our daily life. It was interesting to hear Father talk about entering the desert, with many scriptural references of how the holy Angels have appeared in the Bible at times when there is fasting.

On the second evening, Fr. Titus, who is visiting from the seminary in Brazil, spoke about Heaven, in ways that were totally awe-inspiring.

Of course, each day of the mission involves opportunities for confession. And, there is typically some kind of devotion, be it Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Litanies, etc. What finer way to end each day than with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction?
