We welcome Fr. Michael Magiera FSSP, pastor of our apostolate in Joliette, Illinois, visiting the Naples area, who will celebrate our 8:45am Sunday masses at St. Agnes on August 16 and 23
Saturday, August 15th, Assumption of Our Lady- NOT a Holy day of obligation this year; Schedule of Masses
In addition to the current dispensation from Sundays and Holy Days until September 1st, as August 15th, the Feast of the Assumption, falls on a Saturday this year, attendance at Mass does not oblige. Yet, as it is the principal feast day of Our Lady- her birthday into heaven, we hope all may attend out of love and devotion to Our Blessed Mother.
Our schedule for Masses this Saturday will be:
7:30am, St. Agnes, chapel, Low Mass
1:00pm, St. William, High Mass (at which two of our parishioners- Bryce Smith and Jessica McCarthy will be married)
His Excellency, Bishop Frank Dewane, has confirmed the date for rescheduling the conferral of the sacrament of Confirmation for January 9th, 2021. As this date is 7 months later than the originally scheduled date for 2020, we invite any new highschool age candidates, already registered with Corpus Christi Chapel, to sign up by sending us an email to [email protected] and we will schedule complimentary instruction accordingly.
The following are the total amounts donated in the second quarter of 2020 to support our chapel today, and build our permanent home for tomorrow.
Average Sunday & Holy Day Mass attendance since our reopening and additional mass times added in June:
St. Agnes & St. William- Naples: 224

14 new household registrations: More than 1 new household every week through this quarter! (April-1, May-3, June-10)

With the arrival of our new assistant and our the increase of faithful assisting at daily mass, given the current restriction of 90 people in the chapel at St. Agnes, we will resume 2 daily masses, Monday-Friday at St. Agnes (chapel) at 4pm and 5:15pm, until further notice. It is not necessary to sign up for these masses, unless otherwise noted for a special feast day.
Fr. Anthony Dorsa is from San Antonio, Texas. He was ordained a priest on the feast of St. Philip Neri May 26th, 2017 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Originally discerning a Franciscan vocation in his teenage years, it wasn’t until his later teens that he discovered the richness and beauties of the traditional Latin liturgy. It was here that he began to discern a vocation to the priesthood centered on the perennial treasures of the Church's liturgy. Soon he found out about the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and entered Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in September of 2010. Before Seminary Fr. Dorsa was a full time Cook for a gambit of cuisines and a hobbyist classical violinist, playing concerts even in Austria and the Czech Republic.
Fr. Dorsa is finishing the screening procedures for working in the diocese and should be available for public masses and confessions this Tuesday or Wednesday. He will not be present at this Sunday's masses
Despite the hiatus from public masses, we still received 14 new household registrations over the last 3 months (April-1, May-3, June-10).
And despite the restrictions on mass attendance, with the addition of a 4th Sunday Mass at St. William's, and the use of the main church at Resurrection, our June average is equal to what it was last year (Naples- 224, Fort Myers- 119)
