On Sunday, the acolytes will be commissioned during Mass. We have not done this for a couple of years. It is important for two reasons: to remind us of the solemn duty we have taken on to serve God at the altar, and to show the congregation how many devoted acolytes there are in this parish. No rehearsal is necessary! We will simply gather in the crossing for the brief rite. I hope you will all be there.
Many thanks to all of you for your remarkable, selfless service as Acolytes. Every man, woman, and child in this parish says the liturgy is the most important thing to them, and YOU are vital in allowing them to make that assertion!
