Christmas Mass Schedule

OUR LADY IS PARTNERING WITH ST. CECILIA TO PROVIDE MORE CHRISTMAS MASS OPTIONS

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish looks forward to celebrating Christmas with your family! We know, however, that family schedules are often very busy during the Christmas season.

With that in mind, Our Lady Parish and St. Cecilia Parish have teamed up to offer a variety of Mass times for our Christmas Eve celebrations.
Fr. Dan, Fr. Jim and Fr. Leo will preside at these Christmas Eve Masses on Sunday, December 24.

Christmas Eve Mass schedule:
4:00 p.m. Our Lady Church
4:00 p.m. Our Lady School Gym
5:00 p.m. St. Cecilia Church
7:00 p.m. Our Lady Church
8:00 p.m. St. Cecilia Church
10:00 p.m. Our Lady Church
12 Midnight St Cecilia Church

*The simultaneous 4:00 p.m. Masses at Our Lady will require some planning on everyone’s part for parking options. Please be creative! Think about carpooling or parking on one of the nearby residential streets. Any Our Lady parishioners who attend a Mass at St. Cecilia may submit their offertory envelopes in their collection basket and they will be returned to us. The same will happen for St. Cecilia parishioners who come to worship here at Our Lady.

The Christmas Day Mass schedule is:
9:30 a.m. Our Lady Church
9:30 a.m. St. Cecilia Church

• ST. FRANCIS of ASSISI: The Reformer radically and literally lived as Jesus commanded to transform the Church.
• ST. THOMAS AQUINAS: The Theologian demonstrated that faith and reason are not at odds, as they come from the same source.
• ST. CATHERINE of SIENA: The Mystic gave testimony to the reality of the spiritual dimension here and beyond.
• BLESSED JOHN HENRY NEWMAN: The Convert left a prestigious career to seek and preach the apostolic faith.
• G.K. CHESTERTON: The Evangelist publicly, humbly, and humorously announced the paradoxes and truth of Christianity.

God of Life:

We thank you for all life and for the life you have bestowed upon us.

Strengthen our faith in the Resurrection and our desire to show others the meaning of everlasting life.

We pray especially for those for whom life is painful or fragile.

We ask these things in the name of your gloriously risen Son, Jesus.

Amen.

Homilies

WELCOME!

We are blessed that you have chosen to join with us, as we have with you, in your faith journey – as together we live out our parish vision to form and send intentional, missionary disciples.  Our mission, informed by this vision, is nothing short of the Great Commandment to: Love God, Love Others; and to fulfill the Great Commission: Make Disciples.

We invite you, no matter where you are on your journey of discipleship, to immerse yourself in these five commitments:

Worshipping – as we desire to in all things and all ways be centered in Christ, each of us participate consciously and actively in the worship and prayer life of the community, especially the weekly Eucharist, as well as personal prayer and the full sacramental life of the Church.

Growing – as we seek always to be equipped well for discipleship, each of us are committed to a lifelong journey of human and spiritual growth, to be formed in our faith during each season of our lives.

Serving – as our faith compels us to the mission of evangelization (the Great Commission to “go, make, teach, baptize), each of us serve the mission of the Church in some concrete, meaningful way, especially caring for the poor and marginalized.

Giving – as our Catholic tradition invites us into a lifestyle of stewardship, each of us are “intentional givers” – sacrificially and proportionally sharing our time, talent and treasure.

Connecting – as discipleship is lived in relationship, each of us is engaged in the parish family through some small group commitment, where holy encounter with Jesus and with others is lived, cherished, and a source of encouragement.

These five commitments of an intentional, missionary disciple appear as a challenge to each of us in our parish family, as they in a sense form the expectations of parish membership.  They also appear as the focus of our energy as a parish staff, since attention to these areas are how we work as ministers to help form every member of our family in discipleship.

Our parish staff is both talented and dedicated, and fully committed to walking with you on your faith journey.  I invite you to call our office to schedule a brief meeting with myself or one of our pastoral ministers, so that we can get to know you and your family, and learn how we can help you on your road to discipleship.

 Love, Fr. Dan
