Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am inviting you to participate in the Mass for the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time. There is a “word” from the Lord tomorrow! The Mass will be live-streamed at 10:15 a.m. on the parish’s Facebook page, St. Katharine Drexel Parish of Chicago. Remember! You do not have to subscribe to Facebook in order to celebrate with us. Just “click” on the following link that takes you directly to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.
If you do not have internet access, you may participate in the Mass by dialing our toll-free teleconference number: 1 (978) 990-5000. The access code is: 883420.
Please forward this information to your ministry partners, family and friends who may be looking for a community to worship with on Sunday. I welcome their participation in our liturgy!
Reminders / Announcements:
The Parish Office has reopened for business on a part-time basis. The office is open on the following days and times: Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Should you need to contact us, please do so. These hours are in effect through the end of September. Of course, the office will be closed on Labor Day, September 7 and will reopen for business on Wednesday, Sept. 9.
If you have a new address, telephone number or email address, please let us know asap. Likewise, if you wish to have your name deleted from the parish database, please let us know that as well. This will help us greatly as we continue to update our records.
We will resume our Midweek Prayer and Praise Service via teleconference on Wednesday, September 9 at 6:45 p.m. The call-in number is the same as the telephone number listed above for the Sunday Mass. Another reminder will be sent on Tuesday.
Let us continue to pray for one another in these difficult times. Prayer does work! I leave you with the following prayer: “Loving God, hear the prayers of your people who turn to You in these difficult times seeking Your guidance, love, mercy and peace. Hear our prayers we pray. Keep us close to You for we know that You are always with us. Guide and direct our every step this day for we make our prayer in Your Name. Amen.”
Have a blessed, happy and safe Labor Day weekend! Know that Fr. Herb and I keep you in our daily prayers!
Fr. Paul Whittington, O.P.
