A Note on Mass Intentions: There is a new mail box near the parish office in which Mass Intentions can be left. This box, like the chapel, is available 24-hours-a-day. You can leave your Mass request and $10 stipend in the box at any time.
N.B.: when I schedule Masses, I try to put them on the requested date when possible. When the requested date is not available, I place the intention on the next available open Mass time. If you want to find out if a particular date is open, you are welcome to call or text me at 816.679-8974 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (I am in school right now and will be through December 11, so I am unavailable by phone for part of the day. If you are unable to reach me by phone, please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I am able. It is my hope that Mass Intention scheduling will be available online via the OLL website in the not-too-distant future.)
The OLL Website: Our parish’s website, www.ollraytown.com, was recently updated; there will be more changes to it in the coming weeks. I am in the process of migrating it to an entirely new format that will better enable me to provide information on upcoming events in the parish.
You can still find all of the information that was on the old site on the new; as always, you can find an expanded edition of this Bulletin on the website. The digital edition of the Bulletin is posted to the website on Friday afternoon.
Life Chain 2015: This year’s Life Chain is today! I hope to see everyone this afternoon praying for the sanctity of life and for the protection of the unborn.
All human life is precious because all people are made in the likeness and image of God. There is nothing more valuable than a human soul and no person’s life should ever be ended prematurely for any reason.
Not everyone who is in mortal danger is capable of speaking for him- or herself. It is the responsibility of those who love justice to act as witnesses for those who are incapable of representing themselves.
Please join me this afternoon in silent witness for those whose lives are in danger through the evil of abortion. See the interior of this Bulletin for more information about Life Chain 2015.
