PLEASE NOTE : Eucharistic Adoration
WEEKLY FRIDAY ADORATION is following the 8:00 AM Mass until 3:00 PM. Contact the Parish Office if you are interested in committing to sit before the Blessed Sacrament for an hour each week.
ATTENTION ADULT CHOIR MEMBERS
ADULT CHOIR: The start of the musical season is upon us! Our rehearsals for the Adult Choir are on Thursdays, at our St. Austin campus from 6:30-8:00pm. If you are interested in joining the Adult Choir, please contact our Director of Worship, Heather Johnson, at the parish office. No audition is required. The Adult Choir typically sings on Sunday mornings twice a month, with the Saturday Schola (a smaller subset of the Adult Choir) that sings at the 4:30pm vigil Mass. We also have our Praise Ensemble, featuring more contemporary praise & worship style music. This group rehearses once a month and sings 1-2 times per month on Sundays, at 6:30PM at St. Austins. As always, we welcome instrumentalists and cantors (songleaders) in the ensemble. If you love to sing or play, consider offering your talents to one of these vibrant church groups!
FAITH FORMATION DEPARTMENT
FAMILY FAITH DAY: On Sunday, November 19th, there is a Family Faith Event right after the 9:30 Mass! Travis Salisbury, who is on the liturgical staff at the Basilica of St. Mary, will be coming to talk about the Catholic Mass – why we do what we do. He is an excellent speaker with a lot of energy and helps people to better understand why the Mass is the heart of our faith. The Mass is often misunderstood, so take some time to expand your knowledge of the sacred liturgy. This is open to all in our Church family and beyond, so please do invite your friends and stay for snacks and a lesson.
MONTHLY BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKS
MONTHLY BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKS On the second Sunday of each month following the 9:30 AM Mass, Marie Schmelz, RN, a cardiology nurse and parishioner, will be offering free blood pressure checks. This will coincide with the fellowship time,
