Day of Penance and Mercy
Lent is always a good time to take stock of our spiritual life, and therefore a good time to prepare for and celebrate the Sacrament of Penance. Churches across the Diocese of Rochester will open their doors Tuesday, March 28 for those seeking the forgiveness and reconciliation this sacrament gives. This is a Day of Penance and Mercy
With two priests and three churches, we will be able to open Blessed Sacrament 12:30-7:30pm and Saint Mary’s
12:00-6:00pm on that day. On Wednesday, April 5, 6:00-7:30pm we will have the doors of Saint Boniface Church open for the sacrament. Check the Lent calendar, the bulletin or website for our other times in Lent to celebrate this sacrament.
The last of our three open “town meetings” for parishioners will be held Sunday, April 2 at 11:45 at Saint Mary’s. The meetings are open to anyone from our three communities: these are not individual parish meeting. You may attend one, two or all three meetings as you choose. The Councils and Trustees have a lot to share with you!
March 19-You Are Invited. We have scheduled three “town meetings” on the state of Our Parish as we continue to build a common identity and transition to new parish leadership. We will take a brief look at where we have come from, bring parishioners up to date on where we are and what factors we are dealing with, and taking a look at the road ahead. The first two meetings are TODAY (Sunday, March 19) after the 10 AM Mass at Saint Boniface, and after the 12:15 PM Mass at Blessed Sacrament. The third meeting will be Sunday April 2, at Saint Mary’s after the 10:30 AM Mass. You are invited to one, two or all three of these meetings.Read more.
