An Interesting Survey is underway nationally to support evidence of the growing trend of Catholics attending the “old Latin Mass” between the ages of 18-39. Whereas this is a typical demographic of those who fall away from practice, the opposite trend indicates the older rites to be a forum through which many return or become more committed to the holy Faith. If you are within this age range (single or married), please consider taking five minutes to complete the Norwalk National 2019 Traditional Latin Mass Adult Study.

The next Monthly Recollection is scheduled for Saturday, July 20 from 10-11:30 AM. These recollections consist of two sermons on a related topic, with exposition, the Rosary, and Benediction. As formal retreats are impractical for many, it is hoped that these regular recollections will serve as a profitable substitute, especially for busy parents.
There will be an additional collection Sunday, May 5 for the Catholic Home Missions Appeal. For more information to assist in what amount of donation to make, please visit usccb.org/home-missions.

Fr. Stewart will be away this Monday through Thursday to attend an annual in-service at Fraternity Headquarters in Scranton. There will be no change in the Mass and confession schedule during that time.
Anyone who may be interested in being part of a rotating schedule to buy and deliver groceries for the priests, please contact the coordinator Karen Hastreiter at email@example.com for more information. For those interested in doing the same thing for the sisters, please contact the coordinator Carmen Braaten at firstname.lastname@example.org. May God reward your generosity.
