Thank you to all who helped make the Holy Week Liturgies so beautiful – the Altar Servers along with Mr. Young and Mr. Greene, the Choir and Mr. Flaherty and Mr. Blackhawk, those who helped decorate and clean the church including (but not limited to) Mrs. Karen Hastreiter, Ms. Sarah Berglof, those who helped with the set-up of the altar of repose, those who helped with flowers, the Filiae Laboris Mariae Sisters, Mr. Joseph Poole for the hand-made Triple Candle used on Holy Saturday, and all those who gave of their time to help ensure that our return to our church building (after being in a parking lot last Holy Week and Easter) was glorious. There are many people we’re undoubtedly failing to mention, but to everyone who helped, Thank you! CHRIST IS RISEN! HE IS RISEN INDEED! ALLELUIA!
All Saints is celebrating the traditional Holy Week once again according to the pre-1955 usage. Anyone with a Missal printed from 1955 or later will notice some prayers and rubrics don’t align completely. For more information on why this is, and to print a leaflet to help you follow better, please visit www.pre1955holyweek.com/for-the-faithful.
Please consider attending today’s Choral Stations of the Cross at 3:00 PM. It is a combined effort of our choir along with the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel Choir.
If Fr. Pelster’s recent sermon on Biblical translations or Fr.Cassian’s Lenten Mission talk about praying with Scripture have inspired you to become more immersed in God’s Word, the All Saint’s Bookshelf, located in the vestibule of the Church, now has a variety of Bibles for sale! In addition to the Douay-Rheims Translation and the Revised Standard Version – Catholic Edition, we have a New Testament Study Bible (RSVCE) as well as a handy pocket New Testament! “All Scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproving, for correcting, for instructing in justice; that the man of God may be perfect, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
