Divine Mercy Sunday 2019 ~ Communion Rite Posture Renewal
At the recommendation of Bishop Perez after consultation with the Presbyteral Council and Diocesan Liturgical Commission, he has elected to retain our current Communion Rite posture policy. From a letter on March 15, beginning Divine Mercy Sunday, April 27-28, we will be changing our Communion Rite posture, first established in 2003. As we do now, we will remain standing after the Lamb of God, throughout the distribution and reception of Holy Communion and the singing of the Communion Hymn, until the end of the distribution of Holy Communion.
The change: Once the last person has received Holy Communion and the Communion Hymn ends, we may kneel or sit for private prayer. WE DO NOT NEED TO WAIT FOR THE PRIEST TO BE SEATED.
Also per the Bishop’s request we will include a different liturgical catechesis insert in the bulletin for the remainder of Lent. To read them: Bishop Perez Letter to the Faithful, What is Liturgy, Communion Rite, Postures and Gestures.

Always wanted to sing? The St. Justin Martyr 11:30 am Choir is looking to recruit new members who love to sing. Your weekly time commitment is only to show up early for Mass (around 11:00 am). Christmas and Easter each will require a separate rehearsal. If you would like to sing with the choir and share your voice with the rest of the Parish, contact Tom Gulden after any weekend Mass or call 440-897-0301.
