Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

News and Notes:  Don’t forget to join us for a brunch in honor of the patronal feast of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish (which actually falls on August 15).  It will take place next Sunday, August 14, in the OLA Church Hall following the 11AM Mass and it will be hosted by the parishioners of St. Maria Goretti Parish.  Because this feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother occurs on a Monday, the bishops of the United States have determined that it is not a Holyday of Obligation this year.  Nevertheless, please join us for daily Mass at OLA on Monday, August 15, at 9AM. 

Speaking of OLA, thanks for your patience as the masonry work on the front stairs of the Church is now underway.  For the next week or so until the project is complete, please use the Grove Street and Chapel entrances to the Church.  Many blessings to all of you in the summer days ahead!
