One of our dear cantors, Miss Katie Walton, will be entering the traditional Carmel of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in Post Falls, Idaho on October 15th. Let us keep her in our prayers as she takes this first step toward becoming a bride of Christ in the footsteps of St. Theresa of Avila. She assures us that our community will always remain in her prayers. She and her roommates will host an informal open house for those who would like to say good bye and wish her well on Sunday, October 4th from 11am to 4pm (1630 Nottingham Dr., Naples). Feel free to stop by at any time to have a bite to eat, drink, and leave prayer intentions for her as well. If any want to bring any snacks or drinks to share they are most welcome.
(UPDATE 10.3) The previous request to help with any debts she had has been met and the car has been sold. She will keep her benefactors especially in her prayers. May God reward their charity.
Since Katie must be free of debts and possessions to enter, she would be most grateful for any charity to help pay off the last portion of her college loans. She is also hoping to sell her car (a 2015 Corolla) to a friend rather than a dealership. Since she does not hope to make profit on the sale, the price would be dependent on what is needed to pay off the last of her debts (around 7-8k at this point). Any money she might receive over and above her debt will be donated to CCC's building fund. If you wish to contact her she can be reached at [email protected] or visit www.gofundme.com/last-gifts
We are preparing to order giving envelopes for all parishioners for 2021. If there is any household that would prefer not to have a box, if they manage their giving online for example, please let us know by this Tuesday, Sept. 29- [email protected]
We thank you all for your regular, generous giving which will make your future parish home possible. Check out our website for more info https://www.corpuschristifssp.com/build
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
This Monday, Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, and Tuesday, Feast of the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady, we will have sung masses at 515pm, in addition to the low masses at 4pm. It is not necessary to sign up for them. One can now see which masses will be sung, indicated by the musical notes, on our mass intentions page.
Click here to read the latest letter from our Bishop Frank Dewane extending the dispensation of the Sunday obligation until Nov 1st. Current restrictions continue in place. Please continue to sign up for the 845am mass at St. Agnes, as the chapel capacity remains limited to 90 people.
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:

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.

Every Friday we will have Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the chapel of St. Agnes from 3pm-345pm with Benediction imparted at the end before the 4pm mass.
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)
