Archive for April, 2009
On Divine Mercy Sunday, April 19, 2009, eleven second graders received the Lord Jesus in the Blessed Eucharist for first time. Following Mass, they were enrolled in the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (and received scapulars made for them by the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Alexandria, SD). Father Duman concelebrated with the Pastor.
For the thired year in a row, the children received the Eucharist under two species (by intinction). This year, for the first time, they recieved at the Communion Rail (re-installed in St. Mary’s Church in September, 2008).
Special THANKS to their teachers, Mrs. Shirley Weber and Mrs. Tami Bies, and our parish Director of Religious Education, Mrs. Wanda Heumiller.
Early this morning it was announced that our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI appointed Bishop Robert J. Carlson to the See of St. Louis, MO. The good people of the Archdiocese of St. Louis have been praying for a holy bishop to succeed Archbishop Raymond Leo Burke. Their prayers have been answered! Congratulations, Archbishop Carlson!
