As the pandemic begins to fade and things begin to turn back to normal we continue to remember all of you in our prayers, and believe it important to proceed with our devotional services. We will have the First Saturday Devotion and the Candlelight Procession during July at the shrine. No one is expected to come who may feel compromised by the ongoing virus threat. However we will be taking all precautions and following the guidelines set out for public worship, such as wearing masks, washing hands, using sanitizers, keeping 6ft distancing. Hopefully the weather will be nice and we can open all the sliding doors so people will have the option of sitting outside. I believe it important to move forward with our celebration even it means allot fewer people attending for now. God will provide us with the graces necessary for fulfilling the First Saturday Devotion request. Parking is available in the circle, the parking lot in the back, and on Washington St. It appears that much change has taking place in such a short period of time which calls us to a deeper need to pray and fulfill Our Lady’s request at Fatima. Let’s listen carefully to her words from the July apparition in which the vision and secrets were given to the children. ; “Our Lady said, Jesus wishes you to make me known and loved on earth. He wishes also for you to establish devotion in the world to my Immaculate Heart. Three times her Immaculate Heart was mentioned in that July apparition, also referring to the conversion of Russia and the vision of hell. Our Lady said, you have seen hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. It is to save them that God wants to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart”. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.” Let us keep these words in our hearts!
The Sunday Rosary for peace continues with a small number who have been meeting at the shrine to pray for all those affected by this virus and for all your intentions at 2Pm. Please feel free to join us.
We will be celebrating Independence Day on the First Saturday at the Shrine on July 4th. We asked that you use your own best judgement and stay home if you are sick or may feel compromised because of a pre-existing condition in any way. We asked that you wear masks and keep a healthy social distance from each other. We will have hand sanitizer on hand. Mass will begin at 9am, Rev. Richard Mwisheni S.M.A will celebrate the mass.
CANDLELIGHT PROCESSION: We do plan on having the July 13th Candle light procession at the shrine. The June candlelight procession was a success, I hope you can join us. The service begins at 8pm and there is plenty of space outside to enjoy the service.
REMINDER: I wish to thank all of those who have donated a chair in a loved one’s memory. We still have about half dozen left.
