THANK YOU for your generous offerings. We must join our monetary sacrifices to the sacrifices of our prayers for our Community to flourish in faith, hope, and charity. God bless you!
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE Since our Community here at St. Thomas’ is not a legal entity, we need to have our finances run through the books of St. Kateri Parish. Therefore, checks should be made payable to “St. Kateri Tekakwitha-Latin Mass Community” OR for short, “SKT-LMC”. Contributions can be placed in the blue envelopes OR loose in the collection baskets. Contributions deposited in envelopes from neighboring parishes will be returned to those home parishes and will not be credited to SKT-LMC. SKT-LMC envelopes deposited in neighboring parish collections will be returned and credited to us.
IF YOU HAVE FOUND A SPIRITUAL HOME in our Latin Mass Community here at St. Thomas’, please consider registering with us. Use the census forms found at the entrance door tables. On the top write in clear letters “LMC”. Place form in the collection basket. Welcome!
WE DO NEED VOLUNTEERS to help maintain our facilities, especially in the area of church and parish center cleaning. We need YOU! Please email email@example.com or call 467-8747. Enough volunteers will enable us to have rotating teams.
OUR MOST REVEREND BISHOP, SALVATORE MATANO, will be visiting us here on Sunday July 19. As a way of welcoming him ahead of time, why not drop him a line expressing your pleasure that he will be visiting? Sincere and brief notes can be addressed to him at: 1150 Buffalo Road Rochester, NY 14624.
IN CELEBRATION of the FEAST of the MOST SACRED HEART of JESUS, a Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form (Tridentine Rite) will be offered on Friday, June 12, 2015 at 7 PM at Our Lady of Mercy Parish (St. Patrick’s Church), 44 Lake Street, Leroy, NY.
THE EUCHARISTIC ADORATION CHAPEL, adjacent to the Parish Center must continue to be a very important powerhouse of prayer for us and for people in our area. Hours of adoration are on Mondays through Fridays from 9 AM to 10 PM (11 PM on Tuesday and Friday). WE NEED MORE ADORERS TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY HOUR IS COVERED. Please consider signing up for an hour or being on the substitute list. Contact Marie O’Leary at 467-1982.
FAITH FORMATION for our young people (a.k.a. RELIGIOUS EDUCATION, C.C.D. or CATECHETICS) is a pressing need in our Community life. But first we have to determine the number and ages of the children to be involved AND the number of volunteer teachers willing to be of help. A FAITH FORMATION program, even a small one, should be an important PRIORITY for us, beginning in September. Of special import is preparation for FIRST PENANCE, FIRST COMMUNION, and CONFIRMATION.
DO YOU HAVE A YOUNG PERSON (GRADE SCHOOL OR HIGH SCHOOL) TO ENROLL? ARE YOU AVAILABLE AND REASONABLY QUALIFIED TO BE AN INSTRUCTOR? If so, AFTER MASS TODAY, come to the South entrance (vestibule) of the church to sign up. Someone will be there to take your information. This will give us a good idea of numbers, how to proceed, and what we can offer realistically. SIGN UP TODAY.
PRE-PRINTED DONATION ENVELOPES – If you have out filled out a census form and have registered with our Community, we have arranged for you to receive your pre-printed donation envelopes in the mail. The envelopes will show your envelope number as well, and a 2 month supply will be mailed to you periodically. Please look for your envelopes this month which will cover the months of July and August. If you do not receive your envelopes, please call 484-1810 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
COFFEE HOUR TODAY in the Parish Center, after both Masses. Please come over, even for a little while, to meet each other!
