Father Booth’s Weekly Reflection

Fr. Booth’s weekly reflection can be read online here. You can also download the entire bulletin for this week in PDF format here.

COVID-19 RESPONSE – MASS & DEVOTIONS

We have an additional Sunday Latin Mass at 7:30, which is intended to aid in the social distancing, and continues on a provisional basis.

NOTE ON CONFESSIONS

If there is a significant line for confession, Fr Booth might say part of the formula of absolution while the penitent recites the act of contrition. The full formula of absolution is always said, but the first part might be said softly during the act of contrition. Thus, you might only hear “and I absolve you from your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

WELCOME TO ALL OF OUR VISITORS

We are glad you have attended Mass with us. If you wish to join Blessed Sacrament, please pick up a parish census form at the Religious Goods Counter located in the vestibule of the front entrance.

IN MEMORIAM

For Omer & Ida Hull, the sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of their souls from June 30th to July 6th. The sanctuary lamp will burn for the repose of James E. Mickel from July 7th until July 13th.

CONFIRMATION

We are planning on having Confirmation later this year at a date that is to be determined. The bishop has offered to confirm using the new rite in Latin followed by a High Latin Mass where he will sit in choir.

LAY DOMINICANS

Adult men and women who have been Catholics for at least two years are invited to learn about the Dominican Laity and see if this is where God may be calling you. The pillars of Lay Dominican life center around prayer, study, apostolate (sharing our faith with others in ways appropriate to the laity), and community (monthly meetings on Sunday afternoons in Birmingham). As lay members of the Dominican Order, we are drawn together by the love of St. Dominic, and invite you to consider joining us! To learn more, contact Pam Leverett, chapter president, at pcleverett_66@outlook.com.

LIFE ON WHEELS

Life On Wheels, a mobile pro-life service provider that works in conjunction with Her Choice, needs client advocates and drivers. Please consider volunteering with Life On Wheels, a medical mobile clinic that provides free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, resources, and encouragement to women throughout Birmingham. If you have an interest in learning more or serving in this non-profit ministry, serving women, saving babies, and sharing Jesus, please contact Alejandra Lewis (205) 614-1221 or ale@lowironcity.com
