Peter’s Pence Collection Date Change

Your parish envelope packet will say that the annual Peter’s Pence Collection is taken this weekend.  Because of the Corona Virus, the date has been changed to the weekend of  October 3/4.  If you have already written a check or given a donation, that is fine, we will hold the funds until October.

 

Feast of the Prime Apostles Peter and Paul

The martyrdoms of the apostles Peter and Paul, both occurring in Rome, laid the foundation for the establishment of the primacy of Rome among the Christian Churches.  We commemorate these Apostles every year on June 29th. This feast fulfills the “Apostles Fast” that we have been embracing since All-Souls.  Our bishops have recognized the importance of these two men in both the foundation of the Church and her ongoing mission, and have made this a “day of obligation”.  If you are unable to attend Divine Liturgy (Monday evening at 7:30pm), please contact Father Michael to receive a personal dispensation.

Since the 1960s (See CNEWA.org article called “Relations between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church” (link in this week’s parish email)) the Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch in Constantinople has sent a delegation to Rome on this feast to continue the fraternal dialogue between our Churches and celebrate this common feast.  The Pope then sends a delegation to Constantinople on the Feast of the Holy Apostle Andrew (November 30).

Blessed Feast!  May the Prime Apostles Peter and Paul intercede before the throne of Christ our God to reconcile our Churches!
