FAITH FORMATION

Our Faith Formation team is looking for volunteers in a variety of ways. Please email Andy at AFollaco@dor.org if you are interested.

A Note from Your Coordinator

I’d like to take this opportunity on behalf of the teachers and aides in our Faith Formation Program to wish everyone in our Community a very Holy and Happy Easter! After having a conversation with a Community member just this past week, I couldn’t help but take a step back and reflect upon our first year as a program, and our first year and a half as a Community housed at St Thomas the Apostle Church. We’ve established important elements that show the entire diocese that this initiative, authorized by Bishop Matano, CAN and IS working! Since our inception we have seen the following:

  • A Faith Formation Program was created from nothing. We learned and communicated diocesan requirements and continue to be in compliance with all regulations.
  • There were more than a dozen volunteers that stepped forward to teach in our initial call over the summer. That has left us with a small substitute list, four regular instructors, an aide, and three “immediate prep” teachers for sacraments.
  • We have begun plans to grow our program and called for volunteers to teach those classes or substitute in a current class. Our community came forward with a number of quality volunteers. The selection process for those classes will begin shortly.
  • Almost 50 children have been enrolled into our program. As the year progresses, that number continues to rise.
  • 10 children have received their first Sacrament (First Penance) under our care. Out of those 10 are two that belong to a family that was away from the Church for several years. Since our Community was established here, that family has returned, and the children have begun to catch up on their Sacraments. Tutors were assigned to help fill in gaps. This note itself, in my estimation, is worth our very existence.
  • Community Life has grown with the creation of the Evangelization Committee and other volunteers who have stepped forward to put on events for families. Two of our teachers have put on these successful events. The Faith Formation Program hopes to continue aiding in the growth of our Community life, which we can all agree is essential not only to our existence, but to our growth and commitment to this initiative.
  • A Bible study has taken shape after the Latin Mass at the end of every month. While this isn’t a branch of the Faith Formation Program, it’s worth mentioning that our members continue to look for ways to deepen their Faith. I hope that more people continue to take advantage of this rich opportunity.

In closing, I’d like to thank our devout and supportive parents, who have given us well formed and well behaved children to work with. Together, we will continue to educate your kids about their Faith and how to appropriately live it and defend it! Yes, there is still much work that has to be done and more tweaks to be made, but I believe it is important that we look at ourselves as a whole and see what our Community has accomplished in just 16 months!

 

FIRST COMMUNION

First Communion will be held on Sunday, May 1st. Classes continue after Holy Week on 4/3, 4/10, and 4/17. There will be a MANDATORY rehearsal after each Mass on 4/24.

 

WEBSITE

Please check out our website at www.skt-lmc.org. to see this and all previous notices as well as upcoming events.

 

DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY

Next Sunday after the Latin Mass, Divine Mercy devotions will take place: Adoration, sung Chaplet (in English) and Benediction (in Latin). If you have already received the Sacrament of Penance in Lent, that will suffice to receive the indulgence of Mercy Sunday. Next Sunday, our priest-confessor, Father Helfrich, will be available for the hearing of Confessions before Mass only.

 

CONGRATULATIONS to Sister Joseph Maria of the Trinity, O.C.D., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Antonio Cabarcas of Miami, Florida. With Bishop Matano presiding, she made her Solemn Professions of Vows as a Discalced Carmelite Nun at the Carmel of Rochester on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, March 19. We pray for her steadfast fidelity in the consecrated religious life, and we hope that others will follow her in serving Our Lord and His Church in the hidden life of Carmel.

CONGRATULATIONS ALSO go out to Robert and Raquel on the BAPTISM of their son, Logan Joseph Hartman, taking place this afternoon (on Easter Sunday). Godparents are Gelado Santiago and Fina Santiago.

 

HELPING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY

Each Sunday throughout the year, SKT-LMC collects donations for local food cupboards, for the purpose of alleviating hunger caused by poverty in our area. Donations may be placed in the green baskets in each of the church vestibules.

 

VOLUNTEERS

WE ARE ALWAYS IN NEED OF VOLUNTEERS to help maintain our facilities, especially in the area of church and parish center cleaning. We need YOU! Please email dflanigen@yahoo.com or call 467-8747. Enough volunteers will enable us to have rotating teams.

 

PRAYING FOR THE SICK AND INFIRM

Happily, Judy Burns has come forward and volunteered to coordinate the SKT-LMC bulletin listing of sick and infirm members, relatives, and friends. The list will be there so that we might pray for them. Please note that NO health information will be printed in this bulletin. Judy will coordinate the names: long-term? short-term? when to take off list? etc. To put names on the list, contact Judy Burns at (cell) 585-738-5156 OR (e-mail) burnsie320 @yahoo.com.

DIOCESAN NOTICES

APRIL YEAR OF MERCY CELEBRATIONS AT THE CATHEDRAL
You are invited to attend a Year of Mercy First Friday Mass on April 1, 2016 at 6:30 p.m., at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 296 Flower City Park, Rochester. This First Friday Mass, which will be followed by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and individual Confessions until 8:00 p.m., is the fourth of a series of special Masses to be held every month during the Year of Mercy (Dec. 8, 2015-Nov. 20, 2016).

 

In addition, all are invited to attend the Sunday, April 3, 2016, Chaplet of the Divine Mercy at 3 p.m. at the Cathedral with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and opportunities for individual Confessions.
Pope Francis has declared that passing through the Holy Door of Mercy, located in our Diocese at the inside center entrance of the Cathedral, will offer the possibility of obtaining a Plenary Indulgence, a remission of the temporal punishment due to sins, by participating in the Sacraments of Confession and Holy Eucharist, praying for the Holy Father’s personal intentions, and praying the Profession of Faith (the Creed).

 

DIOCESAN WEDDING JUBILEE MASS

 

The Most Reverend Salvatore R. Matano will preside at a Wedding Jubilee Mass to honor couples who have been married 25 years or more at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester on Sunday May 22, 2016 at 2:00 PM. A reception to honor the attendees will follow the Mass . You do not need to register in order to attend.

 

If you would like your name and anniversary (25, 50 and above) to be included in the Marriage Anniversaries section of the Catholic Courier’s June print edition, please send an email or a letter with the following information:

 

Names, Church and Town where you were married, wedding date/year
Email: newsroom@CatholicCourier.com
Mail: Wedding Anniversaries

Rochester NY 14624-0379

 

WHEN YOU COME TO CHURCH, please turn OFF all cell phones, hand-held electronic devices, pagers, watch alarms, etc. ALSO, remember to dress appropriately (neatly and modestly). Unfortunately, in many churches today, people tend to “dress down” for Mass. How can this be??? RESPECT and REVERENCE toward God and neighbor (i.e. charity) should determine how we present ourselves in the House of God. Thank you, in advance, for your courtesy and cooperation.

 

THERE ARE (AT LEAST) THREE REASONS to maintain a prayerful, quiet atmosphere in the church proper before and after services: (1) RESPECT for the House of God, (2) REVERENCE for the Blessed Sacrament, and (3) REGARD for those who want to pray in peace. The guiding principle should be devotion NOT commotion. Please carry on your friendly conversations in the church vestibules (with inside doors closed), outside, or at the coffee hours. Reverence and friendliness can co-exist—in their proper settings!!

 

COFFEE HOURS

NO COFFEE HOURS are being hosted today. They will resume next week. Have a Blessed Easter Day!
