Discontinuation of the Seasonal
5:30 p.m. Saturday Vigil Mass
& the Seasonal 7 a.m. Daily Mass
After much prayerful discernment, I have decided not to bring back the seasonal 5:30 p.m. Saturday Vigil Mass and the seasonal 7 a.m. Daily Mass. I no longer see a pastoral need to offer these Mass times. Please note: The 7 a.m. Sunday Mass will remain on the schedule.
Based on weekend Mass attendance counts over the past few years, we have a large enough worship space, and number of weekend Masses to accommodate our Mass crowds without having to add an additional seasonal weekend Mass. While the Saturday 4 p.m. Vigil Mass and Sunday 10 a.m. Mass are our most well-attended Masses, there is ample space available at our 7, 8:30 and 11:30 a.m. Sunday Masses.
Our current weekday Mass schedule sufficiently meets the needs of our parishioners who desire to attend Mass during the week. The addition, a few months ago, of the Wednesday evening weekday Mass will help compensate for the discontinuation of the seasonal daily Masses and give parishioners another option for attending weekday Mass.
Perhaps this goes without saying, but this is a good opportunity to be reminded that our obligation in fulfilling the 3rd Commandment is to attend Mass on Sundays (or Saturday event). Attending a weekday Mass does not fulfill our Sunday obligation. However, choosing to attend weekday Mass in addition to one’s Sunday obligation is highly encouraged and brings many spiritual benefits.
Having one year-round Mass schedule instead of two seasonal Mass schedules will provide less confusion and make it more easily to communicate our Mass times both internally and externally. Please see the front cover of the bulletin for our current schedule of Masses.
