My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. AMEN.
Greeting for the Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time 19 - 20 Sept 2020
Good Morning and Welcome to Blessed Sacrament Catholic Community Second Collection for Fall Combined Collection Remember to be respectful of those of us who are trying to pray quietly before Mass begins. We can visit with each other after Mass in the parking lot maintaining the 6ft. distance. Once you are seated, please DO NOT MOVE OR DRAG your chair. If you would like to move from your seat, please get the attention of an Usher for
help. The phone is very sensitive to noise and we should be aware that this is very distracting to those who are watching the live stream. So, let’s all
be conscious of the noises we make without even realizing it. Please don’t forget that children should be accompanied by an adult to use
the restroom in order to ensure proper sanitization. This weekend we celebrate The Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time with our celebrant Fr. Eliseus and we thank & praise God that we can be here worshipping together. The directives from our Bishops for Social Distance & Masks are still the
same as they were inside the Church. Please remember that when it is time for Holy Communion, we must receive IN THE HAND ONLY and please remember to use your hand sanitizer before you leave your seat. The Ushers will direct you, one side at a time. The Ushers will also dismiss us at the end of Mass in the same way.
Announcements for the Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time, 19-20 Sept 2020
CONGRATULATIONS! To all those who were Confirmed by Bishop Rojas last Tuesday evening. Many blessings to all of you. A few of you have voiced concern about the security of the mailbox outside of the office door. It is very secure and can only be opened with a key. If you have Mass Intention requests or would like to drop off your weekly donation, you can place them in the mailbox. This mailbox is checked a couple of times each day. You can also call the office. Our Secretary is not always able to be in the office, but she will get back to you if you leave a message. Scrip continues to be available at the office Monday through Friday. There are
always people in the office on Monday mornings if you would like to come by to purchase Scrip. Cindy Minarik is also available after this Mass every week to help
anyone wishing to buy Scrip on Sunday. You can also purchase Scrip on our website at any time. We are continuing Registration for the Fall Season of Faith Formation. If you have children who will be going into the First Communion class or First Reconciliation class or the Confirmation class or RCIA for adults and children in the Fall, please come to the office to register and pick up a student book. Elaine Ashfield is also available at the office on Tuesday & Thursday evenings from 5:00-7:00PM for those of you who are not able to get here during the daytime. Don’t forget that our website is serving as our bulletin right now and it is the best way to say in touch with your Parish & Diocese. Please remember that at the end of Mass, the Live Stream is still going until Father has left. So, please do not get up to leave before Father has gone back into the Sacristy and please follow the instructions of the Ushers as we do for Communion. We have begun Daily Mass once again on Mondays-Thursdays at 8:00A.M. on the patio. There will not be Mass on Friday except for First Fridays. You may have heard that we had another flood in the office last weekend. Some of you may have noticed the POD in the parking lot as you drove in this morning. We have much more damage than we had the last time and we have a $2500 deductible to pay. Even though our Second Collection this weekend is for the Fall Combined Collection, if you would like to donate to help with our out- of -pocket flood expenses, the best place to donate is to our DDF. We are over our goal and all monies come back to the parish.
