Returned last night from Lourdes

I had a very blessed time visiting the shrines of France. Came back last night. 

As promised, I prayed for you all during Mass, Healing Service and the Rosary Procession. For all our intentions I  lit a few candles at the place where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette. 

Have a safe weekend.

Blessings!

Cardinal Dolan is heading the group of 23 priests of the Archdiocese of NY. As a culmination, we will offer a High Mass at the Lourdes Shrine on Feb 11, the Feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes. This is my first visit. I will be remembering all of you and your needs all through he time I am in retreat there. Please pray for me and all other priests and the Cardinal for a safe and renewing trip.

CCD - 1.30pm Mass:
Parents, strongly disciple all your children to attend Mass also after lunch. From Feb 15, there will be an attendance sign up for all students for Mass also which will be considered as part of their final assessment. I thank all parents who are very passionate about sending their children to Sunday Mass. If you attend Mass at another church, take a bulletin and get a sign from the priest after Mass and bring it your teacher for the records sake. I do it here at St Boniface for Many CCD kids form other parishes.

Let us be united in prayer!

Thank you and God bless you!
