Greetings Our Lady of the Greenwood!
So far so good! Fr. Vinny and I successfully heard a few confessions this morning and are planning on hearing some later this evening at 7:00pm. We are getting ready to start a time of Adoration and Prayer this afternoon. Please refer to the letter sent earlier for details about schedules for the next few weeks. A couple of quick notes:
- When we begin Masses on May 19th: We have space for about 150 people in the Church. This is a little lower than we had hoped for but I think we can manage. We just need to remember, once we begin Sunday Masses you do need to necessarily attend a Sunday Mass as there is no obligation. You can attend Mass on Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. Any time or day of the week. At this point what we are desiring to offer is an opportunity to receive the Eucharist and have Mass in smaller groups.
- We are keeping you in our daily prayers. Please call us if you have any specific prayer requests or needs. 317 888 2861. I am at ext. 222. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Sunday we will be reminded of the upcoming feasts of the Ascension and Pentecost as Jesus promises to send an Advocate to care for those who wish to follow Him (John 14: 15-21). During this time we place our trust and hope in the Holy Spirit who will lead and guide us through this difficult time. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to heal those who are suffering and that those who are struggling may find hope. Pray also for our parish and staff that God will lead us to minister to those who are most in need.
