This past Sunday it was Quinquagesima in the 1962 Missal. Here is a link to the GrottoCast post to hear that homily online.
If you have the free SoundCloud app and follow GrottoCast, look for this homily there.
Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. Assumption Grotto distributes ashes according to the 1962 Missal, where it happens before the liturgy begins. In the past, Fr. Perrone has done the Blessing of Ashes before beginning the 7:30 a.m. Mass and those ashes were distributed before the start of the 7:00 p.m. Mass. In addition, there will be distribution of ashes at Noon for those who cannot make either Mass. Noteworthy is that the choir and schola sing at the 7:00 p.m. Mass. It is choir night and they have an abbreviated rehearsal following the Liturgy.
On Thursday, following the 7:00 p.m. Mass, there will be a Rosary procession to the outdoor grotto for the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes (weather permitting).
On Friday, Fr. Perrone will begin his Lenten reflections on the psalms. As posted earlier, the parish Fish Fry run by the Grotto K of C, runs from 4-7 pm. From 6:45 - 7:30 p.m., Fr. Perrone will have his talk. That is followed by Stations of the Cross in the Church, then Mass in the extraordinary form. The talks continue every Friday, except Good Friday (but there will be a fish fry). Please support this parish fund raiser. A flyer is embedded here for details.
