St. Clare of Assisi - St. Clair

Happy October!

I headed out to St. Clare of Assisi in St. Clair for the 9 am Mass.  It was a lovely drive down I-44.

The music was accompanied by a guitar in the choir loft.  Music:
Opening:  Prayer of St. Francis
Offertory:  Peace is Flowing Like a River
Communion:  Taste and See
Closing:  God's Blessing Sends Us Forth

Father gave a mini-homily before the Kyrie.  God's cultivating us and we are expected to flower.

The actual homily started with why we must always be pro-life and respect life at all stages.  It is a very very grave sin to end a life.  The Church is not here to condemn though.  The Church helps form conscience.  It's Respect Life Sunday and there's a Life Chain this afternoon.  Jesus saves and heals.  We don't have the right to end life.

Next week there will be a special collection.  The Archbishop wants to show some ads on tv and needs money.  Like $390,000  (I have no comment.)  Father had us watch the ads.  They came from Catholics Come Home.  The ads are pretty awesome.

Father used Eucharistic Prayer II and there were no bells.  At the end of Mass, Father pulled a name for a drawing.
