Catholic Community. This weekend we celebrate The Fifth Sunday of Lent with our Celebrant Father Eliseus.  Second collection for Maintenance and Education. Our Mass readings in English are on pages 85 to 87. While we do not have a Spanish Reading at this Mass, you may follow along, en español, at the back of the Missal on pages 90 to 92. While many mask mandates have eased, we continue to encourage all parishioners to wear masks inside the Church during this time. Children must be accompanied by an adult to use the restroom in order to ensure that the restroom is properly sanitized. You will be directed by an Usher during Holy Communion beginning with those in the front pews. Please Maintain the 3ft. distance. And remember to use hand sanitizer before you leave your seat. Those of us receiving Communion on the tongue please remain seated until directed by an Usher to come forward. At the end of Mass, you will be dismissed by an Usher beginning with the pews at the back of the church. Our collective quiet moments before Mass are an opportunity for reflection and silent prayer. The lord is constantly laboring to love us  and speak to us. In order for Him to enter more fully into our lives, both time and space are needed. He indeed gives us that time and space before Mass. Please take full advantage of this tremendous gift of quiet reflection and silent prayer.

We invite you to continue to be as cautious as you feel is personally necessary regarding social distancing and hand sanitizing before Communion. At the end of Mass, the Ushers will continue to dismiss us from the back to the front. During these quiet moments before Mass, prepare your hearts and minds for receiving the Blessed Sacrament. Mindfully minimize your conversations to gift others (with) the opportunity for prayer and quiet reflection.

Announcements for The Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time 
Announcements for The Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time No Second Collection. Our Blessed Sacrament Parish Office has been without Internet for a week due to a shortage and availability of technicians, and we do not expect the internet to be restored quickly. However, Gail and the Parish Staff have done an amazing job working through the adversity and have several backup methods to keep things running until the internet is restored. You can still reach the Parish office by calling the phone number. Alternatively, you can reach Father, Gail, or Elaine directly on their cell phones. We have their phone numbers listed on the bulletin board on the patio, the door of the church office, and on the Blessed Sacrament Website. We appreciate your kindness and patience during this internet outage. Registration for Faith Formation and RCIA has begun. You can register this weekend with Elaine on the patio after Mass, during the week, by visiting the church office or contacting Elaine directly. On Tuesday nights at 7:00 PM, the Altar Society continues to host Movie Nights in Classroom 4 across the parking lot. Join us for inspirational movies and refreshments of popcorn and water. The next movie is The Miracle of the Sun, this Tuesday, August 30 th . This movie is based on the spiritual true story of Our Lady of Fatima. “In the contemplative prayer that is the recitation of the Rosary, Mary has given us a simple yet powerful weapon for the spiritual warfare that is part of daily life in this “valley of tears.” It is not a weapon of violence or intimidation but rather one of peace and healing.” 1 Our community continues to meet to Pray the Rosary through the intercession of our Blessed Mother as well as Saints from Ukraine and Afghanistan for peace in the world. Join us every Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 in the Chapel in the office building. 1 https://www.miamiarch.org/CatholicDiocese.php?op=Article_149288380125807; Archbishop Wenski SEE OVER → Do you know how many parishioners were present at a reception to welcome Father Hahn to 29 Palms in 1940? It might be more parishioners than you think. You can find the answer and even more Parish Historical information in a collection of the Blessed Sacrament Parish Archives. Mike Schmitt has discovered and published a hand-written journal that dates back to the 1940s and recently found original videos of the Church and surrounding areas from the same decade. You can purchase your own copy of Parish historical archives. Support this fundraiser by buying your copies of the journal and video by visiting Gail, in the Church office, during the week. Scrip Gift Cards are more than gift cards; these cards directly contribute money to the Church when you buy them. You can use them at various locations, including Stater Brothers, online stores, and gas stations. For more information or to purchase Scrip Gift Cards securely online through the Blessed Sacrament Website or with Gail in the Church Office. Our Blessed Sacrament Community recognizes and supports the efforts to defeat Prop 1. The California Legislature put Proposition 1 on the November Ballot. This is an extreme proposal that, if approved by voters, would override current law and will permanently allow taxpayer-funded late-term abortions without limit. From September 4th to November 8th, you will see various ways we will recognize and support this effort. Beginning next weekend, September 3 rd and 4 th , The Knights of Columbus are throwing a Baby Shower for all expectant mothers.

The Knights of Columbus are throwing a Baby Shower for all expectant mothers. Bring your donation of new (unopened) baby items and cleaning supplies to our Knights of Columbus any weekend after Mass until November 8th.
