All Saints Day Mass November 1, **11:00am**

Fr. Clark will celebrate the All Saints Day Mass on November 1 at 11am at St. Barbara’s, Powell. Please note the time as it is not what we are accustomed to!

All attendees are required to wear a mask (over the age of 5) in the church and to keep a six foot social distance between families.

Holy Communion will be distributed by a priest or deacon according to the 1962 rubrics.

Helping the Estes Family

A schedule has been set up for providing meals for the Estes Family. Please use this link to sign up to provide a meal. By signing up using this site, it will send you an email reminding you of the scheduled date. Gift certificates to restaurants or the grocery would be helpful as well.

As you know, funeral expenses can add up rather quickly, so I am sure that the Estes Family would appreciate any monetary donations.

And, of course, please remember Caleb and the Estes Family in your prayers.

Rosary & Vespers **Time Change**

After consulting together, those who attend the Rosary and Vespers on Sunday decided that 2:30pm would be a more convenient time for many people.

Vespers can be downloaded on your computer or digital device for free so you can print it or you can access it on your digital device.  Vespers books can be purchased at Angelus Press.  If you are not familiar with Vespers, that’s okay, you’re not alone! Please come and pray with us anyway.

Sunday Rosary and Vespers at 2:00pm

There seems to be a consensus that we should pray together regularly on Sundays. Based on the response to the previous post, we will meet at 2:00pm.

We need a volunteer to lead the Rosary.  If you are willing to take this charge, please comment below. We could even rotate leaders if we have multiple volunteers.

Since few people are familiar with how to say Vespers, we will simply rely on those who are. Each family will be responsible for providing its own materials, and we still need to obey the distancing guidelines in the church.  Vespers books can be purchased at Angelus Press. They are pricey (but worth it), however, there are alternatives.  Vespers can be downloaded on your computer or digital device for free so you can print it.  You could also contact Polecat Printery in Powell (and I am sure other places, as well), send them the link, and they will print and bind it for what I consider a very reasonable price.

Sunday Rosary & Vespers

There seems to be a consensus that we should pray together regularly on Sundays. Three o’clock was thrown out as a possible time more than once.  However, I am concerned that for those who are attending Mass out of town, 3:00pm would be an inconvenient time.  If they went straight to the church, they would be waiting around for quite a while, yet if they went home, they’d just get settled in before having to leave again.

Would two o’clock perhaps be a better time?  Or another time? I don’t think we could go any later than 3:30pm because of the 5:00pm Mass, nor earlier than 2:00pm because those who are attending Mass out of town would not have time to arrive.  I’m particularly interested in hearing from those who are attending Mass at a later time and therefore would be most affected, but in saying that, I’d like to hear from anyone interested in participating.

Please let me know by commenting on this post so that I can get an idea of everyone’s thoughts and post the time.

Cancelled – Wednesday TLM

Due to the little interest in the Wednesday night Traditional Latin Mass, it will be suspended. We will keep in weekly touch with Father as things continue to normalize a bit and reevaluate the interest that people have and the ability of Father to provide the Mass.
