Wednesday of the 29th Week in Ordinary Time

Greetings Dear STA Parishioners and Special Friends:

Welcome to Wednesday of the 29th Week in Ordinary Time.  Today’s readings can be found if you Click Here for Today's Readings .

Fr. James Dorman is our celebrant and homilist for today’s Liturgy of the Word, and it is up and running on our Facebook page.  We don’t have a Memorial for a saint today so there is no Saint info for today.

The reflection at the end of the Liturgy of the Word is a prayer to St. Joseph…pictured above with the infant Jesus from the beautiful statue in our Church.

I have some wonderful and positive news to share with you today.  One of the things we have discovered during this time is that there are many folks who are shut ins (even before the pandemic) who are being totally blessed by the opportunity to attend Mass online.  They are so grateful to be able to be in STA…even if only virtually…for Sunday liturgies.

So, we have made the investment and are in the process of installing high quality permanent cameras along with a new mixer board so that we can more easily continue the live-feed broadcasts even after Mass restrictions are lifted.  We are so happy that so many people are being blessed by these broadcasts.

Another neat thing is to hear the stories of families who live in different parts of the country who are watching the Mass together as if they were in the Church together.  How awesome.

So, I thought you would like a bit of uplifting news during this tough and frustrating time.

HUMPDAY SUNDAY MASS REPORT:  There are still slots available at all the Masses this weekend, although 10:30 may be full by the time you read this.

You can sign up for Sunday Mass if you Click Here for Sunday Mass SignUp .

WEEKDAY MASSSES REPORT: Today’s Mass (if you read this before noon) is nearly gone or may be gone by the time you read this, but the rest of the week and next week are open.

You can sign up for Weekday Masses if you Click Here for Weekday Masses .

I hope you are blessed by the news today, and I hope you are blessed by the message from the Liturgy of the Word and the reflection.

Blessings to all.

Your servant in Christ,

Deacon Ken
