LITURGY OF THE WEEK
MASS SCHEDULE next weekend, August 2nd, we will resume the regular mass schedule with the vigil mass at 5:00 p.m. We thank Abbot Tom DeWane and the Norbertine Community for their service to our parish in the absence of Fr. McGing.
RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS The R.C.I.A. will resume in the fall. We encourage parishioners to volunteer as sponsors and for hospitality. If you know of anyone interested in the R.C.I.A, or for more information, please call the Parish Office at 601 924-6344.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION All children in the parish are expected to regularly participate in the program for a two year period as a partial requirement for receiving the sacraments. Parents are responsible to ensure their children and teenage youth participate in the program. The education and growth does not end with Confirmation. A class for 11th and 12th grade will continue this fall. Confirmation class begins in September for all 9th and 10th grade. The Diocese requires a two year preparation program in order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation during the Easter season, and participation in the program is mandatory for candidates to be recommended for Confirmation to the bishop. A mandatory parent meeting will be held in September to outline the expectations.
