FSSP Priestly Ordinations – Yesterday, May 28, four of our deacons were ordained to the priesthood by Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz in the Cathedral of St. Cecilia’s, Omaha, Nebraska. Please keep each of these new priests in your prayers.
Survey — Rosary after 10AM Mass – With 2017 being the 100th anniversary of the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary to the children of Fatima and with the enemy ships massing in the harbor, we need to answer the call of our dear Mother to pray her rosary. If you would be interested in joining us for the Rosary following the 10am Mass on Sundays please send an email to email@example.com. We will be offering the remaining two sets of mysteries so that our Community offers the complete 15 decades each Sunday. Remember, a Plenary Indulgence is offered by the Church when a five decade rosary is prayed before the Blessed Sacrament (See #17 Manual of Indulgences).
