From the Pastor’s desk……
Reverence & Respect
After Communion, each person must give thanks for the precious gift received and allow the grace to fill our souls. How tragic it is to see people leave Mass right after Communion, not because of an emergency, but because they want to get out of the parking lot first. Surely giving the Lord one hour of our time- and usually less-for the holy sacrifice of the Mass is not too much to ask.
After Mass is concluded, wait until the Priest, altar servers, lectors & extraordinary ministers of communion have processed down the aisle before leaving the pew. The congregation should disperse only after recessional hymn has concluded. Please do not forget to take the Sunday bulletin to keep you informed of the events in our Parish.
Fr. Amador M Abundo
