On Mission Meetings at Our Lady of Peace
October 26 & 27, 2016
This is a very important meeting. Please pick one of the nights to attend.
Beginning OCTOBER 22ND the SATURDAY VIGIL MASS will move from 5:30PM to 4PM. We are changing the Mass time 2 weeks earlier this year due to the “Touch of Vegas” dinner on Oct. 22nd. This is done every year at the end of daylight savings time through Palm Sunday so that people can be home before dark (and hopefully before roads freeze up) during the winter months. Thank You!
Anointing of the Sick Mass
Sunday, October 9 at 10:30AM Mass “Is any among you sick? Let him call for the presbyters of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” (James 5:14-15) The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will be administered at the 10:30AM Mass. Who may receive the Anointing of the Sick? Any elderly person or any person – no matter what age – with a serious illness or a debilitating condition. Parishioners are invited to bring shut-in loved ones, but if they are unable to attend, call the parish office (724-869- 3024) to arrange for a time for Fr. Jim to visit them at home. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church the effects of the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick are: - The uniting of the sick person to the passion of Christ, for his own good and that of the whole Church; - The strengthening peace, and courage to endure in a Christian manner the suffering of illness or old age; - The forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able to obtain it through the sacrament of Penance; - The restoration of health, if it is conducive to the salvation of his soul; - The preparation for passing over to eternal life.
The parish office will be closed on Monday, October 10 in observance of Columbus Day.
There will not be any CCD on Sunday, October 9 or Monday, October 10.
