40 Hours Devotion Begins at Assumption Grotto

Forty Hours Devotion is beginning following a special time for the daily Mass tomorrow morning.  Please support this Eucharistic devotion by spending time with the Lord.

There are Mass schedule changes for Friday and Saturday morning, as well as for Sunday.

 Fr. Perrone wrote in last week's bulletin:

I often like to suggest reasons why you need to do this. If the urgency of these times, or of your own personal needs or those of the general welfare do not sufficiently warrant the sacrifice of your time to visit the church, then your heightened sense of obligation towards the Lord ought to move you so to do. 
In brief, here is the schedule: Friday morning’s Mass is set back to 6:30 a.m. followed by the Procession with the Holy Sacrament; exposition is held throughout the day until the 7:00 p.m. Mass with Benediction following at 8:00 p.m. Saturday morning’s Mass with procession is again at 6:30 a.m. with ongoing adoration interrupted only for the 4:00 p.m. Mass, reposition being resumed afterward until 8:00 p.m. Sunday’s exposition follows the 6:30 a.m. Mass and is interrupted for the 9:30 Mass which will be in the new rite; the solemn closing of the Forty Hours itself follows the noon Tridentine Mass, with its Procession and Litany of Saints. Please note these Mass time changes

I know from past experience that the Saturday evening period, after the 4:00 PM Mass, is quite a sweet time to be there, especially if it is taken to the end of the day, which is around 8:00 PM both Friday and Saturday. Families should really take time together on one or more of the days.  In fact, on Saturday night, I'm sure an altar boy or two might be appreciated.
