Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church.

Wednesday is the Feast of St. Kevin and a tradition has been established over the past few years at SFdS. Father Bline takes this moment to offer a Mass for parents who have lost child. If you are unable to join us in church please join us for Mass online.

St. Kevin… pray for us.

An Adoration Update

On Tuesday, May 26th St. Francis de Sales will resume our regular daily Mass schedule of 8:15 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Phase 2 of Adoration will begin the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, at 7:00 a.m. until the 8:15 Mass and then resume at 8:45 after Mass until the 6:30 evening Mass. There will be no adoration on the weekday evenings. Also there will be no adoration on May 25th, Memorial Day.

Many of you had regular holy hours. I will post the previous schedule (used in January and February) on the back table by the choir entrance door. If you can continue at the previous stated time, please write “yes” next to your name and sign your initials.

Those of you who did not have a regular holy hour or half hour are welcome to sign up on this list for the time you would like. If you are a family, please let me know how many will be attending.

We are so grateful for your patience and your prayers as we work to make adoration more available for many. We look forward to this next phase of returning to a few more hours of adoration.   More details will be forthcoming.

May the Good Lord bless you richly and keep you safe.
