HELPING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
Each Sunday throughout the year, SKT-LMC collects donations of non-perishable food items for local food cupboards, for the purpose of alleviating hunger caused by poverty in our area. The need is very real, even though we may not “see” it close-up. Donations may be placed in the green baskets in each of the church vestibules.
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 [email protected] or call 467-8747. Enough volunteers will enable us to have rotating teams.
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 and should co-exist—in their proper settings!!
PRAYING FOR THE SICK AND INFIRM
Judy Burns has 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.

WHY ON EARTH AM I HERE?
A boat without a rudder usually ends up in the weeds. That’s not where God wants you! God has a purpose for your life…to bring Christ to the world with your hands and your voice. It’s your VOCATION.
This Sunday, we celebrate World Day of Prayer for Vocations and pray for all Christian vocations – married, single, ordained, and consecrated religious.
May Mary, Mother and Guide of Jesus, intercede for our faith Community, so that, made fruitful by the Holy Spirit, it may be a source of true vocations for the service of the holy People of God. Amen.
(from Message of His Holiness Pope Francis on the Occasion of the 53rd World Day of Prayer for Vocations, April 17, 2016)
On the fourth Sunday of April, April 24th, there will be a Scripture Study of one or more of the Gospels read at the Latin Mass during April. These are the selections:
Third Sunday after Easter (April 17th)
A little while and you shall see Me no longer … I go to the Father. (John 16: 16-22).
Fourth Sunday after Easter (April 24th)
Jesus promises to send the Advocate. (John 16: 5-14).
Everyone is welcome!
Which of these Gospels would you most like to discuss?
COFFEE HOURS TODAY?? Yes—after both Masses! After the 9am Mass, we will be having a “welcoming” celebration for David Coyle on the day of his initiation into the Catholic Church.
