A Note from your Deacon

With the start of a New Year, I would like to share some Catholic New Year’s Resolutions for your faith-filled consideration. Many New Year’s resolutions are not kept.  It is estimated that 40% of people make New Year’s Resolutions but only 8% actually achieve them.  To help realize one’s resolutions, it might be better to make a few small and realistic goals, rather than one overwhelming objective. With all this in mind, I suggest picking one or two of the resolutions below as a way to improve your spiritual life.

1.  Read the bible- The bible is a big book and I suggest that you start with “The Acts of the Apostles.” It is full of drama and adventure as the early church discovers what it means to be disciples of the Lord Jesus.  Next read the Gospel of Luke, who wrote the Acts of the Apostles.  Ten minutes a day would be a good start.

2.  Go to confession once a month- It’s not easy to confess one’s sins but there is much peace and joy in regularly being reconciled with God and with one another.  This sacrament is a sure way to grow spiritually.

3.  Pray the rosary daily- Many saints and popes have recommended this powerful prayer.  Start simply if needed.  You don’t need to pray the rosary all at once.  Break it up and say a decade or two throughout the day.  This may help you get started to say the whole rosary someday.

4.  Spend some time in front of the Blessed Sacrament- This can be a special time of quiet prayer and growing in friendship with the Lord. Our parishes offer such adoration monthly.

5.  Listen to Catholic Radio- This is a great way to learn more about the Catholic faith.  Relevant Radio is the Catholic radio station in our area, FM 94.5, but its range is limited.  Check out the Relevant Radio app if needed.

Upon Further Reflection

A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way back to church service, “And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?”

One little girl replied, “Because people are sleeping.”

In His mercy,  


Deacon Mark 


The Mass: A slice at a Time - The Liturgical Year


The Music or rather the Sacred Music: 

Most of us would agree that music is an important part of worship. The Second Vatican Council declared the Church’s music tradition “greater even than that of any other art.” St. Augustine once said, “he who sings praise, not only sings, but also loves Him whom he is singing about.” This is why we sing – it is an artistic form of vocal prayer, and an expression of our love for God.


If we understand why we sing, shouldn’t we also strive to understand what and when to sing? This is the distinction between simply “singing the Mass” and “singing at Mass.”  The Second Vatican Council went on to say, “sacred song closely bound to the text…forms a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy. Sacred music will be the more holy the more closely it is joined to the liturgical rite.” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, #112).

Each parish operating a cemetery shall have a committee.  The cemetery committee shall act in an advisory capacity to the pastor leader for cemetery matters. The parish cemetery committee shall be a subcommittee of parish finance council.  It is recommended that the committee consist of no more than five persons. One of the members will be the pastor or his designee. The cemetery committee shall have a chairperson, appointed by the pastor, a secretary and a treasurer, elected by the members.  They shall meet as often as needed, but at least annually. It is recommended that once per year, representatives of the cemetery committee provide a report or meet with members of the Pastoral Council to outline accomplishments, review finances, revenues received and expenditures of the past year and discuss any plans for the upcoming year. The finance council may want to appoint one of its own members to be liaison to the cemetery committee. 


Come help celebrate the Mass by joining us as a lector or Eucharistic minister on Sundays.  Preparation is minimal and the rewards of this service are enriching and fulfilling.  Please see Mary Harte at St. Anthony’s or contact the Parish Office at St. Michaels if interested.



Deadline for new information is 9:00 pm Tuesday evenings. Contact parish office to Submit.
