We hereby open up mass intention requests for 2021. Given the growth of our community, mass requests will initially be limited to 8 per household. In addition to the general public mass requests other urgent requests (recent death, critical injury, crisis, etc.) may be submitted directly to our priests if they have any availability in public or private masses.
Public mass intentions are limited to registered and active members of Corpus Christi Chapel.
We currently have two daily masses (Mon-Fri) 4pm and 515pm, which schedule was established to spread people out and provide more room under the present restrictions. Whether two masses continue each day for the remainder of 2021 is yet to be determined. Wherefore, one public mass intention will generally be scheduled each day, leaving the other one free for more urgent or particular requests.
Please review the available mass times on our website and submit your requests and payment there. Please indicate your preferred time and location, and we will generally try to meet that request as close as possible in light of all the other requests. The schedule for certain masses throughout the year may be adjusted as varying times are determined for special occasions, extra masses and seasonal changes. So please review the schedule which is updated periodically.
On the mass intention schedule one can likewise see whether it will be a sung mass and whether there will be confessions during the mass.
Although under the present dispensation in the diocese of Venice, attendance at the Holy Day Mass of the Immaculate Conception does not oblige this year, nonetheless we will have a Holy Day schedule of Masses to accomodate all those who come out of love for our Immaculate Queen and Patroness of our country.
We will have Mass at:
- 7am (St. Agnes, Naples)
- 12pm (Resurrection, Fort Myers)
- 4pm (St. Agnes, Naples) (sign-up required)
- 5:30pm (Sung Mass) (St. Agnes, Naples) (sign-up required)
A collection will be taken up at all masses this day, as indicated in the giving envelopes for Sundays and Holy Days.
This Saturday, in addition to the normal 7:30am low mass, we will also have a sung mass at 6:30am, which is a traditional Advent custom in honor of Our Lady, who as the dawn announces the coming of Christ the Sun of Justice.
Those who ordered Christmas Trees can receive them:

As occurs every year with the season of additional mass times at Resurrection, our Latin Mass will move to 1:30pm, beginning on the First Sunday of Advent, November 29. This seasonal schedule usually lasts through May, depending on the influx of people to the area and need for additional masses.
This Thursday, the national holiday of Thanksgiving, we will have two masses at 8am and 945am at St. Agnes. Confessions will be hear before and after these masses. There will be no afternoon/evening masses.
Please come and render thanks to God for the great gift of Himself in the Holy Eucharist.
His Excellency, The Most Rev. Frank Dewane, Bishop of the Diocese of Venice, FL, in his most recent decree (11.20.20) has extended the dispensation of attending Sunday and Holyday Masses through the new year. Present restrictions of spacing, face masks, etc. remain in force. Nevertheless, 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.
Fr. Romanoski will be away on vacation from Nov 17-28. Please come early before mass or make an appointment for confessions, with Fr. Dorsa. Fr. Romanoski will be available via phone or email but ordinary questions should be directed to Fr. Dorsa.
Dear Corpus Christi Parishioners,
Due to the tropical storm and possible hurricane activity tomorrow in Naples, as a safety precaution, St. Agnes will be closing all of their facilities, whereby there will be no public masses or Eucharistic adoration on Monday, November 9, including our masses we normally offer in the chapel. The stated intentions for the public masses will be offered privately. Let us pray that we are spared any damage. The normal schedule should resume on Tuesday. Stay tuned for any further announcements.
A prayer against storms attributed to St. Anthony of Padua and found in the Pieta Prayer Book is the following:

Amen!
