PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
“We, at the Basilica of the Co-Cathedral of
the Sacred Heart of the Diocese of WheelingCharleston, are a diverse community of the poor,
the disadvantaged and hungry, the well-to-do, the
youth, elderly, visitors and those seeking refuge.
As a community of many cultures and races,
we stand for unity in our diversity by expressing
our love of God the Father through prayer and
worship, through service to one another, through
the ministry of welcoming, through evangelization
and ecumenism. With the Bishop, we shall pursue
this mission faithfully through the example of Jesus
Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit and the gifts
and talents of our members.” All are welcome
today, especially visitors, guests and those who
might be new to the community.

ADORATION of the BLESSED SACRAMENT:
The church is open daily from 7:15 am to approximately 6
pm. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is encouraged by
spotlighting the Tabernacle outside the times of the Holy
Sacrifice.
HOLY COMMUNION: We welcome to the Holy Mass all
who share our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. While all are
welcome here, we cannot extend to all an invitation to receive
Holy Communion. This is not for lack of Christian hospitality.
Rather, it is the recognition by the Catholic Church that real
divisions of faith and practice do sadly exist among
Christians. Practicing Catholics who go to Confession
whenever needed are invited to receive Holy Communion.
Non-Catholic Christians and those Catholics in need of the
Sacrament of Penance are asked to pray for a spiritual
communion with the Lord Jesus and for the unity of His
Church.

Mass Intentions may be repeated in the same
week because of a lack of Mass requests.
It is a Holy and Wholesome Thought To Pray for the
Dead. More effective than flowers or memorial gifts, is
to have the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered for your
deceased loved ones or a Mass celebrated as a
“special intention” For a living person.
Call or visit the parish office to request a Mass
304-342-8175.
Use of Contribution Envelopes
Those who insist on anonymity in contributing to the parish
are asked to use the parish contribution envelopes and mark
the contribution space -0- or -?-. This will enable pastor to
know you are a practicing Catholic and regularly attend Mass
for reasons noted under Sponsor Certificates.
Sponsor Certificates
To act as Sponsors of Baptism/Confirmation, certificates are
gladly issued to registered members of the Basilica of the CoCathedral of the Sacred Heart who have received the
Sacrament of Confirmation, are known to attend Mass
regularly by use of envelopes, receive Holy Communion
regularly, have children receiving Catholic Religious
Education and, if married, have done so in conformity with
the regulations of the Catholic Church. Same criteria required
for families to receive special parish rates for SHGS tuition.

supports our SMILE Ministry. The date indicates the last month paid in 2014.
Thank you for all you do for our children and the elderly. Msgr. Sadie

The First Sunday of Advent
“The season of Advent, which we begin again today,
restores this horizon of hope, a hope which does
not disappoint because it is founded on God’s
Word. A hope which does not disappoint,
simply because the Lord never disappoints !
He is faithful!” -Pope Francis
Advent Prayer
Come, O Lord!
“For they see directly, before their eyes, the
Lord’ return to Zion.” -Isaiah 52:8
Lord, help us to wait with patience and
anticipation, not caught up in the rush of the
season, but resting in your ever-present love.
Amen.

Did you know?
“There are many, many families today that will end in divorce
because they will not survive the pressures of contemporary society
unless they receive help,” insisted Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. The
Church must work to strengthen the family by helping couples practice
Christian concepts of virtues if it wishes to “open wide the doors to
Christ” in the vision of St. John Paul II, he said. “We have often heard
that the family is at the center of the New Evangelization. This means that
there must be greater pastoral care and formation of families at the parish
level. We must pray that this will be one of the fruits of the recent Synod
on the Family and of the upcoming World Meeting of Families to be held
in Philadelphia.” Anderson and his wife Dorian were recipients of the
Saint John Paul II Award for the New Evangelization and were appointed
by Benedict XVI to the Pontifical Council for the Family in 2007, they
are both members of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of
Jerusalem.
