Immaculate Heart of Mary - North Little Rock (Marche)

For my last Mass in Arkansas, I headed to Immaculate Heart of Mary, in the community of Marche, which is on the edge of North Little Rock.  I'm thinking this used to be a Polish community, but now it hosts the Vietnamese Masses every other Sunday.

Music was accompanied by a small electric piano and choir in the front of the church.  The choir loft provided extra seating.
Opening: The King of Glory
Offertory: The Summonss
Communion:  Whatsoever You Do; Gift of Finest Wheat
Closing: Soon and Very Soon

The homily was given by the Deacon.
Who is your king.  Who or what do you let lead your lives. Some say it is cultural. The Irish drink, the German are bullheaded.  This is not an excuse.  We are called to conversion.  Do we let the government detemine our morality or does Jesus determine it?  Jesus separates the sheep from goats. He decides who is who. Jesus rules until his enemies under his feet.  Jesus puts the sheep on the right.  The sheep are the ones who give him food and comfort.  When was the last time you called or visited the sick?  Have you comforted the stressed or are you the one causing the stress?  What if that person is anxious because they need forgiveness from you.  Maybe you need to be forgiven.  Have you asked?  Jesus is King.  Who rules your life?  Is it Christ the King?

Father used Eucharistic Prayer III and there were bells.  And a bake sale after Mass.


The Archangels, but I don't know who #4 is.

  1. I looked up the names of the archangels (Book of Enoch - not in the Canon). They are: Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Remiel and Saraqael. Don't know who #4 is!
