Father John 2021 Return to sacred mass

RETURN TO SACRED MASS

Father John Moineau, Father Roniel Duenas, and Deacon Jeff Cieslewicz invite you to return to the banquet Table of Christ each Sunday to share in the Holy Eucharist at Sacred Mass.

Due to the pandemic this past year, the Sunday obligation was temporarily suspended to keep everyone safe through a very vulnerable time.

God has led us through the darkness into a wonderful light. Bishop Larry Kulik in union with the Bishops of Pennsylvania, welcome you to return to Sunday Liturgy.

Eucharistic Procession Aug 15.2021-001-001

Eucharistic Procession – August 15th at 2 pm

Together, Immaculate Conception Parish and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton are sponsoring a Eucharistic procession at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton this year. To participate as a community makes a statement of welcoming back God into our parish families after a year of just personal devotion. It is a time of reverence and awe to be shared with each other.

While this is being sponsored by both parishes all are welcome to participate. We will begin in the church in silent prayer and the ten icons of saints and will be presented and all will process out followed by Fr. John  as he carries the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance. At each tent we will stop and pray asking healing and strengthening for ourselves, our parishes and our nation. We will then process back into the church to be blessed and sent forth.

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the whole Christian life. A Eucharistic procession, therefore, is a public witness of the veneration toward the most holy Eucharist. It takes place in this way: A consecrated host – that is, the real and substantial presence of Jesus Christ: body, blood, soul and divinity – is placed within a monstrance, which is then lifted and carried by a priest who leads the faithful in procession. Like a pilgrimage, a Eucharistic procession normally starts at one holy place and ends at another. This earthly journey reminds the Catholic faithful of their spiritual journey toward eternal life with God

It is customary to show respect for what we are doing by dressing in appropriate clothing, i.e., Sunday Best-dresses, skirts, dress slacks for women with modest tops and full coverage shoes-No sandals or flip-flops. Men are to wear dress trousers, dress shirts, and ties. Casual clothing is not considered appropriate for this demonstration of our Catholic faith.

For some this will be a pleasant reminder of the last Eucharistic procession in the streets of Irwin.  For others who are unaware of this devotional practice and will be introduced to a practice that will enrich their personal experience as members of the Catholic faith.

Please spend some serious time considering the benefit to you and your family to attend this.  You will be blessed and enriched by your prayerful presence to this celebration.
