Father's Bulletin Letter 9.13.20

Sep 10, 2020


Our Annual Eucharistic Devotions are this week beginning after the 11:00am Sunday Mass and continuing day and night until Tuesday evening. Thank you to those who were able to adopt an hour. If you did not adopt an hour, come by at any time to worship our Lord. If you only have a half hour, great! Spend a half hour. If you only have fifteen minutes, fifteen minutes will do. Stop by for ten minutes after picking your children up from school. When you are driving by, we are so blessed to have a church building where you can see all the way up to the sanctuary from the road, just stop for a moment and give a salute!

The Eucharist is the Person at the center of our community. Without this presence of our Lord, we wouldn’t exist. Even during COVID, we have been so incredibly blessed in ways that so many other places have not, and we still were able to celebrate the sacraments and continue, in new and different ways, the spreading of the Good News. Join me in giving thanks and praise to the God Who loves us and to Whom we turn to bless us and keep us safe particularly in this challenging year.

TUESDAY PROCESSION:  We will have a candlelight procession around our property on Tuesday night beginning at 8:00pm. In the procession we will also have a painting for our patron saint, asking for continued protection against pandemic and sickness. After we return to the church, there will be Compline (Night Prayer) and benediction as there typically is on Tuesday nights, only a little later!


ST. PADRE PIO RELIC:  At the 9:00am Mass next week we will be introducing the relic of St. Padre Pio to the parish. Thanks to the thoughtfulness, generosity and work of a parishioner, this great gift is coming to St. Sebastian Parish for its permanent home. It will reside in the prayer chapel, on a shelf for it which is being built by a parishioner.

Unfortunately, due to Labor Day, this bulletin letter must be written a week in advance and the final details have not yet been worked out. Keep an eye out for the Angelus Letter for more information. In addition to the Mass, there will be a short presentation (for those who desire to stick around) and prayer.

God bless,

Fr. Valencheck
