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.

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. “SMILE” November, 2014 “Partners-In-Hope” November, 2014 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. 40. 41.

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.
