This Sunday, October 18, is the 32nd anniversary of the founding of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. We thank God for all the graces received and especially for such supportive faithful.
Special graces and indulgences are received by those who join our Confraternity of St. Peter, which is a sodality of members who wish to unite themselves to the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and aid in the work of our Fraternity, primarily by their prayers. You can learn more and enroll yourself at: fssp.com/enroll-in-the-confraternity/.
His Excellency, The Most Rev. Frank Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice, FL, by his most recent decree (read here), has extended the dispensation of attending Sunday and Holyday Masses until Nov 27. Present restrictions of spacing, face masks, etc. remain in force. Nontheless now in this advanced phase of reopening, His Excellency encourages those who can and who are not at risk to attend mass regularly. Please continue to signup in advance only for the 845am Sunday Mass per the instructions in the previous announcement.
Per the previous announcement, regarding the resumption of adoration at St. Agnes, during the day from 9am-345pm, the proximate goal is to reestablish nightly adoration on Monday to Saturda (which will take place in the little adoration chapel of the Church). The following times must still be filled to be able to extend it perpetually:
Saturday: 12am-1am, 4am-5am
If one is able to habitually cover one of these hours please sign up on the St. Agnes website. The date of comencement of the evening-night hours will be announced after the slots are filled.
Daily Exposition of Blessed Sacrament at St. Agnes Chapel (NOW INCLUDING SATURDAYS beginning Sept 26)- Please wear a mask while at common hours of adoration
Beginning Tuesday, September 8, Nativity of the Blessed Vigin Mary, the parish of St. Agnes will resume Eucharistic exposition and adoration, Monday-Saturday, from 9am - 345pm, in the chapel, NOT in the small adoration chapel of the main church, but in the same chapel we use for our Latin masses. Corpus Christi Chapel will be responsible for the adoration from 3pm-345pm on Mon-Fri, imparting Benediction before our daily 4pm mass. We thus need to have at least 5 adorers present from 3pm till 345pm. Please sign up for this 3pm hour or any other hour at which all are free to visit or sign up by clicking here. As indicated on the signs at the entrance to the chapel, one must wear a mask while in the chapel at the hours of adoration in common. Any other questions regarding the adoration hours can be directed to [email protected]
One of our parishioners, Mr. Reno Anselmi, is offering discounted auto service or repairs to fellow Corpus Christi members. Please contact him directly regarding any details at 239-207-6467
As current restrictions continue regarding group parish activities till Nov 1st, we will resume our Maidens of Mary and St. Stephen Acolyte Guild via Zoom classes:

Senior Maidens 10:00-10:45; Junior Maidens 10:45-11:15; Acolytes 11:15-12:00.
All confirmation candidates for the rescheduled date of the conferral of this sacrament by His Excellency Bishop Frank Dewane on January 9th, will meet via Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month (Sept 12, 26; Oct 10, 24; Nov 14, 28) from 10:00-11:00.
Respective emails/messages will be sent to all of each group. Please contact us if you have a son or daughter that would like to be incorporated into the respective groups

From a Financial Advisor of our community:
Any Individual Retirement Account holder aged 70 ½ or older may make a contribution directly from a traditional IRA to a qualified 501(c)(3) charity of up to $100,000 without it being considered a taxable distribution.
The CARES Act, signed into law March 27, 2020, enables any taxpayer with a Mandatory Retirement Distribution due in 2020 from their Retirement Plan to skip their MRDs this year.
This is a great and most effective way for parishioners over age 70 ½ to make their 2020 donation to our Corpus Christi Chapel Building Fund.
If you wish to learn more about QCDs, don’t hesitate to ask Father Romanoski or Father Dorsa.
