spent. Facebook Mass

We thank those at the office that brings the Mass and Church to
home-bound people with computers. The usual number of computers that
are viewing the broadcast ranges from 50 to 60. This is not the number
of viewers watching, only the number of computers watching.
Who knows for sure how many people are gathered around the computer?
We’ve had people commenting on the side that they’re from
Steubenville, OH. Wisconsin, even the United Arab Emirates. I would
suggest that you use the computer and go to Facebook at to
watch the broadcast of the 10:00 AM Mass. We are grateful to David and
MaryRose for providing the expertise and dedication to putting this
service on the world wide web.  That’s just how many computers are
using the streamed Mass and not necessarily how many viewers are
watching. Each of the services of the Triduum of Easter was
I am sure that Dave and Mary Rose would not be offended if some
individuals volunteered to learn the procedure of broadcasting the
Mass to give them a break. I’m sure that this ministry could be added
to the schedule.  Isn’t it worth the effort of learning a new skill?
The bugs seem to be worked out as of the last Mass broadcast.
Perhaps we could get some students from Shawe to do it. I’m sure that
the K. of C. would spring for another phone so that the Carlows do not
have to use their phone.  Contact Dave if interested.

famous Swiss Steak.  Lent is over so enjoy the meals. All meals are
complete with side dishes, desserts, and non-alcoholic drinks.  The bar

First Friday Mass is at 7:00 AM  Adoration starts right after Mass.
The Holy Hour of Adoration starts at 8:00 AM for the increased vocation
to religious life followed by Benediction at 9:00 AM. The Knights have
been doing this for over 30 years.  The includes prayers from a
booklet available when you come into Church. There is a lot of time
between prayers for private adoration. If a Knight can not make it
for the Mass, they can come by 8 AM or a little later for the final
They are also sponsoring a Wednesday Adoration from 5:00-7:00 at St.

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.” (Gospel for Oct. 2, Lk 17:5)

“Increase our faith.” Think about that for a moment. Even the apostles, who walked with Jesus, lived with Jesus, heard him teach, and saw him perform miracles, had their struggles with faith. Wouldn’t faith be even more difficult for us, who have not seen Jesus when he walked the earth? Fortunately, Christ is truly present to us in the Eucharist, and we can hear his words in Scripture. If we wish to increase our faith, let us spend time with Christ in the Eucharist and listen to him through Scripture.

Challenge by Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William E. Lori:

This month, I challenge you to spend some time each week reading and meditating on the Gospels in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Second, I challenge you to participate in the Faith in Action Pilgrim Icon program.

Questions for Reflection:

Do you ever find yourself just “going through the motions” when it comes to faith? How can spending time with Christ in the Eucharist or reading his words in Scripture increase your faith? What are some practices you can undertake to grow in faith in Christ?
