we will accept offerings to support Catholic Relief Services(CRS). In
addition to supporting the relief and development work of CRS in some 98
developing countries, the Catholic Relief Services also supports programs
that serve immigrants through Migration and Refugee Services, fosters
programs in Justice, Peace, and Human Development, along with the Holy
Father’s Relief Fund. Please be generous.
STAND or KNEEL?
we included a letter from Bishop Perez regarding our posture during the
Communion Rite at Mass – when to stand, kneel and sit. With this bulletin
and for the next two Sundays, we will include explanations from our Liturgy
office as to why we do these things. The Bishop asks that all of us be in
compliance with these regulations by Divine Mercy Sunday, April 28th.
Once we have an understanding of why we stand, kneel or sit, it will be
easier to follow the regulations.
