Altar Boy Camp Days 2 & 3

Our Altar Boy Camp has come to an end. Everyone had a great time, but all of us are exhausted. There was rarely a free moment. Wether prayer, talks, training in the Extraordinary Form, recreation or eating, there was not really much time left to really rest.

Yesterday, we had Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament with Divine Mercy Chaplet and a consecration of Our Lady, in the form composed by St. Maximilian Kolbe and Benediction.IMG_2876

The three day Altar Boy Camp closed with a Missa Cantata in the Extraordinary Form, before a cookout with families.

A great with with great boys and young men. I look forward to next year’s 2nd Altar Boy Camp, but not I need to rest!

 

Altar Boy Camp – Day 1

Today began our 1st Annual Altar Boy Camp. It was a great day and all had an enjoyable time. We had prayer, talks, training, food and fun. Here are a few pics from today.

After prayer, I began the day with a tour of the church. I invited the boys to see the confessional from my side. “You never know if you might sit there some day!”

After my tour, Nathan gave a talk on reverence.

Of course there was some fun recreation.

We did a session on how to serve the Missa Cantata in the Extraordinary Form. There was a session on sacred vessels and vestments. And of course there was food.

Air Conditioning Fixed

honeywell-thermostatMany have been upset that the church has been cold these last few weeks. I have even been told that some people are leaving the parish. Let me assure you, the temperature was set to 73˚.

On Wednesday, it was discovered that the thermostat was not connecting with the sensors in the church, but registering the temperature in the closet where the controls are located. The temperature in the closet was 80˚ and not dropping. This cause the AC continuously run.

This situation was unknown to us and out of my control. All should be set now.

Thank you for your understanding, and please spread the word!

God bless,
Fr. Finelli
