James will be offering the Invocation and the Benediction for this celebration.
Wednesday May 29th - Ascension Day (anticipated) - This is a major feast in the life of the Church marking the 40th day of Easter. We will celebrate with our usual midweek services and, in keeping with tradition, will offer a Pork Chop Potluck in the Undercroft after Mass. Plan to come, worship, feast and fellowship on this glorious day in which our Lord returned to his heavenly home.
Wednesday June 5th - The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary falls on a Friday (May 31st) but we plan to celebrate the feast on this day with our usual midweek services followed by a dine-out.
