Stay in touch through our parish website: www.sthelenchurchnorwell.org While traveling find local Mass times at: www.masstimes.org THE FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION, August 15, falls on a Monday this year, and because of that, the obligation to attend Mass on that day has been removed by the bishops of this country. Mass will be celebrated at 9:00am as usual. FYI: some years ago, the bishops of the United States decided that those holy days which fall on a Saturday or a Monday would not be observed as days of obligation, i.e., days when we are obliged to attend Mass. The exceptions to this are Christmas and the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception in as much as the Immaculate Conception is our nation's patronal feast day.

But when he saw how (strong) the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?" -Mt 14:30-31

NINETEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

AUGUST 7, 2011

As we begin our not so remote preparations for the start of a "new" year in the parish, our most important work will be implementing the new Roman Missal which I think we have all heard about, and which we have addressed just a bit in the past. As we move forward, we'll be ramming up the preparations through bulletin inserts, homilies, information/education sessions and in every other way that would seem appropriate and helpful. The bottom line is that beginning over the weekend of November 26-27 of this year, the First Sunday of Advent, a new Missal (the book from which all of the prayers of the people and the priest come from at every Mass) will begin to be used. While we'll explain it at great length in the future, this Missal contains the new translations of most of the prayers which we will be saying and singing at Mass. We will have cards in all of the pews which will assist us (and that includes the priests!!) in learning the new translations. We are also in the process of deciding upon the various musical settings which we will be using for parts of the Mass such as the Gloria, the "Holy, Holy, Holy" and the Memorial Acclamation (response to proclaiming the Mystery of Faith"). The reasons for the change are significant (something we'll be explaining over time), but implementing the changes should not be all that difficult. There will be much more to come.
