January 23rd is the National Day of Prayer for the Right to Life. Fr Phil would like to have an Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 12 -6pm followed by Benediction at 6pm. In order to complete the six hours every hour needs a volunteer to sit for that hour. Please call the rectory as soon as possible this week so we can announce on January 22nd if we are doing this.
The Rectory will be closed on Monday, January 16th in observance of
Martin Luther King, Jr. It is seen as a day to promote equal rights for all
Americans, regardless of their background. Some educational establishments mark the day by teaching their pupils or students about the work of Martin Luther King and the struggle against racial segregation and racism. In recent years, federal legislation has encouraged Americans to give some of their time on this day as volunteers in citizen action groups.
