Readings: Isaiah 2:1-5; Romans 13:11-14; Matthew 24: 37-44
Sunday begins the new liturgical year; during the Sundays of Year A, the Gospel will concentrate on that according to Matthew.
The community Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 AM, Fr. James presiding and preaching.
SEATING IS LIMITED and Mass is provided primarily for our Guests in the Retreat House. My estimates for how many we could seat exceeded our guests’ sense of comfort. We can only fit about 21 people comfortably in the space provided and we often have a hefty dozen retreatants from the Retreat House in attendance. Last Sunday, as usual, people left three places empty in the front pew rather than sit there. Evidently Catholics avoid the first row at Mass, no matter what!
We really don’t have room for visitors and advise that you seriously consider celebrating with your parish on Sundays. Thank you for your co-operation
