TODAY’S MASS INTENTION: † Anthony Keri (10th anniversary), by Anthony M. Keri
MASS INTENTIONS FOR THE COMING WEEK:
|August||15||Saturday||9:00AM||Latin Mass, celebrated by Fr. Bede Kotlinski OSB|
|August||16||Sunday||9:30AM||For Helen Kacsala, by sister-in-law Mary Spisak|
FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: One of the serious obligations of a pastor/administrator is to pray for the people of his parish. The canons of the code are very specific in saying that the pastor must offer on Sundays and Holy Days of obligation a Mass for his people (in Latin called missa pro populo). If the pastor has more than one parish, one Mass suffices to fulfill this obligation. Hence, in the bulletin, you can see listed among the intentions of the Masses the following: “For the Parishioners of St. Emeric and St. Elizabeth.” Now you know why it is there. Switching topics, we have received from the diocese a permission to move the celebration of St. Stephen of Hungary to a Sunday. Thus, in our church we will celebrate the feast of St. Stephen on August 23rd. God bless! Fr. Bona

COVID 19 DIRECTIVES: Since the reopening of the Catholic Churches here in Ohio, some of the directives which we must still adhere to—the faithful are obliged to wear a face mask upon entering the church and during the celebration of Mass except for the brief moment of receiving Holy Communion; Seating is to be such that 6 feet of distancing should be maintained between members of one household and another. No hand shaking for the sign of peace. Anyone not feeling well or the elderly and vulnerable, should stay home. The obligation to attend Mass on Sunday is still suspended.
