PASTOR'S CORNER



Rev. Mark T Watkins
MASS and WAY of the CROSS    
EUCHARISTIC ADORATION, CONFESSIONS  

      On the Friday afternoons of Lent we will have the Way of the Cross beginning at 5:00pm followed immediately by Holy Mass.           
     Please remember also, that Eucharistic Adoration is every Thursday afternoon from 3-5pm.  During Eucharistic Adoration, I hear confessions from 3:15pm-3:45pm.  Confessions are regularly scheduled on Saturday afternoons from 3pm-4pm.          
    Holy Mass, the Way of the Cross, Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, fasting, abstinence & almsgiving are excellent ways to prepare our souls to celebrate the Lord’s resurrection at Easter.             

Fish Fry:  Our Fish Fry is held on all the Fridays of Lent, including Good Friday, from 4pm-7pm in Heritage Hall (under the church).  Dine in, drive-thru or carry out.  Click here to see this year's menu.

Festival:  Mark your calendars for our Parish Festival on July 8 & 9.  More information will follow.   

PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  • LENTEN REGULATIONS   Ash Wednesday (March 1) and Good Friday (April 14) are days of fast and abstinence.  All other Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence only.  Abstinence means no eating of meat (beast or fowl) and is to be observed by all Catholics 14 years of age and older on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent.          

    • Fasting means limiting oneself to one full meal on a given fast day.  Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  On fast days, two additional smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength.  However, two smaller meals together may not equal one full meal.  Moreover, eating solid foods between meals on fast days is not permitted.              

  • St. Lawrence Athletic Association Hamdinger is on April 1, 2017 from 8pm – 12am.  Live music will be provided by Jeff VS Luke.  Prizes are $100, $50 and hams.  There will be basket raffles, spirit raffles and much more.  Cost is $1 pre-sale or $5 at the door.  You must be 21 years of age or older to attend.  For tickets call or text Chris Caine at 276-6681 or Tina Martini at 828-8416.  Tickets will also be available in the rectory. 

  • New video documentary about St. Lawrence:  You will want to check out the brand new documentary about St. Lawrence Church.  IT’S GREAT!  It was produced by Satolli Glassmeyer of History In Your Own Backyard.  To view the video go to www.historyinyourownbackyard.com/cincinnati-ohio/price-hill-videos/   

  • “The Light is on for you”:  All Catholics, especially those who have not participated in the Sacrament of Reconciliation for some time, are invited to experience the love and mercy of God through this Sacrament.  At the Archbishop’s request, I am providing you with an EXTRA opportunity to go to confession.   Confessions for The Light is on for You initiative will be Tuesday, March 14, 2017, from 7:00pm-9:00pm.  Before you go to confession you should make a good examination of conscience.  In the back of church there is a basket with wallet sized practical guides to confession with an examination of conscience.  Please use them.  We will have the church open for you to come and pray quietly and to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  May your days of preparation for the Lenten season be filled with every grace and blessing. Plan now to make a good confession.

  • Rosary Rally:  On Sunday, May 21, 2017, at 1:30pm – 2:30pm we will celebrate the 12th annual Rosary Rally at the Elder High School football stadium (the Pit).  100 years ago Our Lady asked us to pray the Rosary faithfully and reverently at Fatima and offered 15 reasons why it is necessary for the future welfare and good of His Holy Church and the world.  The website is:  www.onepeterfive.com/why-you-should-pray-the-rosary-daily-15-reasons-straight-from-our-lady. This rally is an answer to her request.           Nearly two thousand attendees come to this yearly.  The celebration starts with a procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament as the center of our devotion.  The recitation of the Holy Rosary, together with worship, songs and prayer, make this gathering memorable.  Local priests in our Archdiocese will lead us in prayer.           It’s important to note that Elder has air-conditioned their gymnasium.  In case of inclement weather, the rally will move to the gym.           You are an integral part of making the Rosary Rally a success.  Hope to see you at the rally.  May God bless you!
