Fr. Mike’s Bulletin Letter, Sunday, August 9, 2020

Greetings,
Our staff member, Sue Walters, is retiring as of August 18, 2020. Sue has served on our parish staff for the past seven years and has always helped out whenever and wherever there was a need in the parish. I thank Sue for her good and faithful service to our parish community and wish her happy times with her husband, Chris, their children and their grandchildren.

This year the Feast of the Assumption is not a Holy Day of Obligation, but we will have one mass on Saturday August 15th at 9:00am in our church in Ijamsville. If you would like to attend this mass, please go to our parish website to reserve a seat. We have capacity for 151 people. If you come to this mass, please bring a
mask to wear. We are hoping to live stream the Mass at 9:00am.

The new school year is beginning. We will pray for all children as we get ready for the start of the new school year. During the Mass celebrating the Feast of the Assumption of Mary into heaven, we will pray the prayer of Consecration of a Child to Our Lady, asking for Mary’s intercession for all students. The prayer is below.

Consecration of a Child to Our Lady
The purpose of consecrating or entrusting a child to the Blessed Virgin Mary is to place him in a special way under Our Lady’s care, so that she can better fulfill her task of transforming him into an image of her Son, Jesus Christ. Baptism communicates grace and divine life to the soul and makes us into the image of Jesus Christ whose life we must relive in our own. Our Lady helps us to remain faithful to this baptismal consecration. She teaches us to be always available to doing the Will of the Father. A child thus consecrated to Mary will enjoy her special maternal protection throughout life and at the hour of death.

Parents who wish to consecrate their child to Our Lady should do so in front of an image of Our Lady, preferably on a Saturday or a Feast of Our Lady. There they should dedicate and present their child to Mary asking her to take him in her special care.

Have a blest week!
