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/.
Sunday, October 18th, is World Mission Sunday, in which an extra collect is added "pro fidei propagatione" for the propagation of the Catholic Faith throughout the world, without which it is impossible to please God (Hebr 11.6), and go to heaven (Mk 16.16).
Please remember this intention in your prayers at mass and in this month dedicated to the Holy Rosary.
For those who would like to donate to the mission work of the diocese of Venice, which helps missions on a local and international level, one can deposit a check made out to Corpus Christi Chapel in the normal Sunday collection whether at mass or by mail, earmarked for "Mission Sunday" and it will be forwarded to the diocesan office for the said purpose.
Fr. Dorsa will be away from October 19-27 to make his canonical retreat and to attend the conferral of Tonsure, this coming Saturday (Oct 24, 11am) on our second year seminarians, which include our local vocations- Jose Fernandez and Danny Battis. Please pray for Father's retreat, and for the seminarians who will receive the cassock for the first time as tonsured clerics. The ceremony can be viewed via livestream here.
As there will be one priest present at masses during this time, confessions will only be heard before masses, sometimes afterwards if time allows, and by appointment.
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.
Next weekend two distinct rosary rallies are being held
Saturday, Oct 10th from 10am to 11am, at the north-east corner of Pine Ridge and 41 in Naples, organized by the Solidarity Rosary Walk
Sunday, Oct 11th, from 3pm to 4pm at St. Agnes Catholic Church, before the Blessed Sacrament (in the main church, led by Fr. Kris) organized by Rosary Coast to Coast
Both Rosary Rallies are being offered for the triumph of good and the vanquisihing of evil in our country so much in need or prayer.
This Wednesday, Oct 7, is the Feast of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, and we will have a Sung Mass at 515pm.
All are invited to attend these powerful, prayerful events.
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.
