My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Christ is risen! Alleluia! Go out and announce the Good News of the empty tomb, that is Our Lord's Resurrection! Rejoice in the message of the Easter Season! Put on the love and joy that is Christ and live it for all to see! Let us embrace the Risen Christ who comforts all throughout the world in times of difficulty! May you and your family have a Blessed and Happy Easter! +Bishop Frank J. Dewane
This Friday, abstinence from meat, which obliges every Friday of the year save solemnities (canon 1251), does not oblige as it is the Octave of Easter, the most solemn feast, which we celebrate for 8 consecutive days. Please join us at daily Mass to celebrate this glorious Octave.
A Collection will be taken on Holy Thursday to help cover all expenses for the solemn ceremonies of Holy Week. The Collection for Good Friday will be taken for the Holy Land, according to the instructions from our Bishop. And for those who attend the Holy Saturday Vigil, please note that this fulfills your Sunday obligation and the collection at the Vigil Mass will thus be part of the Easter Sunday collection.
Palms are blessed on Palm Sunday only in conjunction with the Procession which will be done at the beginning of the 8:45am Mass. Please take one on your way in to Mass and the celebrant will bless them passing through the aisle. Those who attend the 7:15am Mass are welcome to stay for the procession or to come back during the week to receive a blessed palm. They will be provided, already blessed, at the entrance of the 2:15pm Mass in Fort Myers.
Please note that you can now personally manage your recurring donations- creating, pausing, adjusting or increasing them :) from our website.
Due to the solemn ceremonies of Holy Week which require three sacred ministers there will be no confessions during the Solemn Masses of the Triduum. Please plan on going to confession earlier in the week and to sin no more- ‘Tis the season.
We welcome and thank seminarian Mr. Christian Hernandez FSSP, present to help us with the solemn Holy Week ceremonies. Please remember him in your prayers as he discerns and prepares for the Holy Priesthood.
