Weekly or monthly donations and tithes can now be made via direct deposit! This can be done by clicking on the new “Online Giving” link. The link is user-friendly and should be self-explanatory.
- To set up recurring donations, click the “First Time?” button and create an account.
- One-time “Quick” gifts are also possible through this link without logging in.
- A ConnectNow Giving App can also be downloaded to the phone.
While direct deposit is encouraged, check and cash donations are still welcome. As the envelope system has been discontinued, for cash donations to be credited for tax purposes, please be sure to put your name and address on the envelope that is used so it can be identified and recorded. Thank you!
The lending library located in the convent basement is open each Sunday from 7:30-10:15 AM and accessed through the back door of the convent. The library has an excellent selection of books, especially books about spirituality, saints, Church doctrine and history. Donations can be made during the same hours.
The Sisters would like to borrow a mini-disc player for the days of June 10-22. The novices will make a retreat during those days and would like to listen to conferences by Bishop Athanasius Schneider which are recorded on mini CDs (which cannot be played on a regular CD player). Please contact Mother Maria Regina if you can help. Thank you!
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.
Out of Town
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.
Holy Week Schedule 2019 (PDF)
As last year, All Saints has the privilege to use the rites of Holy Week prior to the reforms in 1955, granted by a limited indult to the Fraternity of St. Peter. Some noticeable changes will be in the increased length of the Passion narratives, which begin with the Last Supper, thus tying together the institution of the Holy Eucharist and the Crucifixion as one and the same sacrifice. On Good Friday, Holy Communion is only received by the celebrating priest, who alone stands at that liturgy in persona Christi; as it is the day our Lord died, the Church bids the attending faithful to fast from reception of Holy Communion, which in striking fashion brings out the absence of Christ. And the Holy Saturday liturgy is conducted during the day.
Further information and some excellent catechesis can be found online at www.pre1955holyweek.com.
As was announced, along with solemn Masses throughout the week, we will be blessed to have Bishop Cozzens celebrate the Mass for Holy Thursday; Bishop Joseph Perry, an auxiliary of Chicago and good friend to the Fraternity, will celebrate the liturgies on Good Friday and Holy Saturday. The 10:30 morning Mass on Easter Sunday will include an small orchestra, as was done at Christmas.
Please note that the seat belt sign is on.
