St. Catherine Labouré

Catholic Church  

"Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought." -Pope John Paul II


St. Catherine Labouré (Zoe) was born 1806 in Fain-Les-Moutiers France, 9th of 11 children. She entered the Sisters of Charity in 1830 and took the name Catherine. In November 1830 Mary appeared to her and asked for a medal to be made (Miraculous Medal). Mary had rays coming from gems on her fingers. Those without rays symbolized graces we forget to ask for. For the next 46 years Catherine led a hidden life, and cared for old men. She died on 12/31, 1876. She was canonized in 1947. Her body is incorrupt to this day.

Dear Parishioners, 

After consulting with the Parish Council, Hispanic Committee, Clergy and Staff, and inquiring among the parishioners about the need for an additional Spanish Mass on Sunday morning and hearing from the English speaking parishioners their desire to continue with the 9 am Mass in English. The Parish Council, the Hispanic Committee and I, had thought of having both Masses on Sunday mornings at 9 am - one in the church and one in the Claridge Room. The problem is that the Mass in the Claridge Room would not have kneelers, or missalettes, and sadly no Tabernacle. This was a dilemma requiring further consultation and much prayer.


I officially, on Monday, June 15, 2015, accepted the unanimous recommendation of the Parish Council, to add one Mass in Spanish on Sunday mornings.


The Sunday Mass Schedule will be adjusted as follows effective August 2, 2015 :

           7:00 am English 8:30 am Spanish 10:00 am English

          11:30 am English 1:00 pm Spanish

I thank you for your cooperation in helping me find a solution to this predicament.


God Bless you.  
           Fr. Mike —Pastor

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Loving Father, Thank You for the gift of life and for the freedom to love and worship You. Through the power of the Holy Spirit inspire us to be Your witnesses. Grant us the courage to boldy and joyfully stand in protection of our freedom. In Your mercy, guard our religious freedom so we may continue to live out our faith and transform the world in which we live. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
