Next Sunday, June 18th we celebrate The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus Christi. Following the 12 Noon Mass, Fr. Cipriani will lead us in an outdoor Procession with the Most Blessed Sacrament around the Church grounds. Please join us as we honor our Lord, who is truly present in the Holy Eucharist!
Mass of Healing and Hope
Another Mass of Healing and Hope will be offered here at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish on Monday Evening, June 19th at 7:00 PM in Church. The main celebrant for the Mass will again be Father Larry Carew who will have in place, a team of prayer warriors ready to pray over those seeking the power, comfort and healing presence of the Holy Spirit. The Healing Mass that took place in March was well attended and very well received with many people sharing with us stories of having been profoundly and intimately touched by the Spirit that evening. As fallen human beings, who of us are not in need of some form of healing whether emotionally, spiritually and/or physically? If you or anyone you know might benefit by attending this Mass, please spread the word to as many people as possible. It is also highly recommended that prior to attending this Mass, in the next couple of weeks, to take advantage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This is a healing sacrament that will lay a very strong foundation for receiving those very special graces on the evening of the Mass.
Come and pray together next Sunday, June 25th at 6:30 PM for our Evening Prayer, or “Vespers.” Vespers is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world, and give thanks for the day just passed and makes an evening sacrifice of praise to God (see Psalm 141:1). By praying the Divine Office, we join with the entire Catholic Church who are praying the same prayers at the same time throughout the world. In addition, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will be offered during this time. Please come and join together as a parish family and experience this beautiful prayer of the Divine Office.
Center of Mercy Reconciliation
As a Center of Mercy parish in the Diocese of Bridgeport, we will offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation on the Last Tuesday of each month from 7:00-8:30 PM. As Catholics we have the gift of Confession to restore our relationship with God and share in His glory. This is a wonderful opportunity to set aside our sinful ways and to draw nearer to the Lord. In addition, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will be offered during this time as well, as long as there will be people present during this time to Adore our Lord.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Will take place on First Friday, July 7, following the 7:30 a.m. Mass and will conclude on Saturday, July 8, prior to the 7:30 a.m. Mass. All are welcome to come and spend an hour with Jesus.
