Happy Wednesday!

Just a few things as we hit the middle of the week:  

  • Bishop Hurley, Apostolic Administrator, has asked that we take up a Special Emergency Disaster Collection this weekend to help our brothers and sisters who have been affected by the recent wildfires in the Northwest and hurricanes in the Southeast parts of the United States. If you are able to contribute to this cause, please do so that we can help those families who have been affected by these natural catastrophes. 
  • Today, September 23 is the beginning of the 40 Days for Life Devotional. Please join us on this 40-day prayer campaign to battle against abortion. More information can be found on the website: 40DaysForLife.com.
  • Reconciliation will be offered this afternoon from 5-7 pm outside near the Sacred Heart statue (weather permitting) and on Friday from 12-1 pm and again from 4-6 pm in the church. An examine of conscience can be found here and the prayer for repentance and conversion is attached below.  
  • Tomorrow, Thursday, September 24 is the National Day of Prayer and Fasting for the conversion of hearts as well as for mercy and healing for our country. More information can be found on the Georgia bulletin website.
  • On Saturday, September 26, Rebecca Berg is holding prayer time in the park “Gathering our community together in prayer for our nation.” The prayer time will begin at noon.
  • Finally, the Funeral arrangements have been set for Father Robert H. Bissot:
    • On Tuesday, September 29, 2020 there will be visitation starting at 5:00 pm followed by a service at 7:00 pm at St. Anne Church in Harrisville, MI.
